The yield of cereals primarily depends on the number of productive stems. Their formation and survival during the growing season depends on the strength of plants and mineral nutrient conditions during the tillering phase of VVSN 21-30. From one grain the plant will form one full-fledged ear, and the second will be full-fledged - so-called adjustment.
To stimulate the formation of more productive stems, it is necessary to create favorable nutritional conditions for the plant. The most important nutrient at this stage of growth and development is nitrogen, which the plant absorbs about 50 percent of the total need. However, the full absorption of nitrogen requires a balanced diet of other elements and inhibition of disease. At the same time, there is an active formation of the photosynthetic surface and increased absorption of carbon.
Given the current state of the crops and the results of many experiments offer two options for feeding winter crops in the phase of tillering:
- For the weak, poorly developed in the autumn cropsthat have not yet resumed active growth, foliar application appropriate to later, when leaf-stem mass plants will be able to absorb nutrients and biologically active substances. For such crops we recommend the tank mix ECOLINE Phosphite (K) of 1,0 l / hectare + ECOLINE Universal Growth (Amino) - 1,0 l / hectare.
- For normally developed crops in the first spring foliar feeding we recommend ECOLINE Phosphite (K) 1.0 - 1.5 l / ha to stimulate the growth of the root system and inhibit the development of diseases, which is relevant in the spring of this year.
