The second foliar application of sunflowers is the basis of high yields.


Balanced mineral nutrition, combined with integrated plant protection, can provide a fuller use of the genetic potential of grown hybrids, and thus obtain a higher yield of good quality. The period from the formation of 6 to 8 pairs of leaves is extremely important in the ontogenesis of culture. Nowadays, the formation of the main element of the productivity of the culture - baskets and the lack of key elements of mineral nutrition and stresses of different nature - is developing in full swing. It negatively affects the future of the harvest. Our company, a fertilizer manufacturer for endless feed, represents a fairly wide range of high quality fertilizers on the market, whose effectiveness has been repeatedly proved. Among them, special compositions containing L-α-amino acids have become particularly popular with which plants quickly overcome stress and form higher yields.

Sunflower belongs to borough cultures. Lack of boron during the growth of vegetative mass, the formation of leading beams and flowers negatively affects the yield. In view of the fact that boron is slow-moving in a plant, the desired dose is desirable to be administered in parts for two to three doses.

For the phase 6 - 8 pairs of leaves, the best fit is the Ecoline Bohr Premium. This product, except for 140 g / L of organic boron, contains 10 grams per liter of L-α-amino acids, which provide a quick overcoming of stress factors. The rate of use for one application - 0,5 - 1,0 l / ha.

An important role in the mineral nutrition of this culture belongs to phosphorus and potassium, which contributes to the formation of a healthy plant. Zinc fertilization is very effective in soils with low content and low availability of zinc for root systems. Since the spring of this year, the company has released a new composition of Gros Amino Zinc containing 80 g / l zinc and 60 g / l L-α-amino acids . Recommended dose for feeding sunflower to a phase of 6 - 8 pairs of leaves 1.0 l / ha . You can enter both separately and with the addition of 1.0 L / ha Ecoline Phosphite K. As the results of functional diagnosis show, plants require additional fertilization with macro and microelements, which are inaccessible to plants in conditions of insufficient moisture provision. Stress factors have a great influence on the active development of young sunflower plants. Lack of moisture on the one hand, and the phytotoxic influence of soil and insurance herbicides, on the other hand, can cause significant losses both in yield and in grain quality. Even on crops of hybrids resistant to one or another herbicidal group, in the first days after their introduction there are manifestations of stress on plants. And each such stress reduces the potential yield by 5-15%! Therefore, plants need help to quickly overcome stress factors. The optimum in this period is the use of special fertilizers for endocrine nutrition - antistressants.

We propose to use micronutrient fertilizer Ecoline Fosfitin K-Amino in such crops at a dose of 1.5 - 2.0 l / ha . The fertilizer contains in its composition of 70 g / L L-α-amino acids, which are quickly absorbed by plants and remove them from the state of stress. The testing of one of the pioneer seedlings by Pioneer Seed Ukraine in 2017 in the Ternopil oblast (Table) showed that foliar fertilization contributed to the formation of higher performance indicators and a significant increase in yields with high payback rates.
