Due to the weather conditions that delay harvesting of predecessors, at least half of the planned areas of winter cereals will be sown at a later date.
Is it good or not? - On the one hand, it seems good, because weeds will have less chances, and late tillage should reduce the number of larvae of the winter moth.
But there are also negative points:
- winter cereal plants have less time for growth and development of the root system and leaves;
- plants will not be able to absorb the necessary elements of mineral nutrients from colder soil, which, in turn, will have a negative impact on the accumulation of dry matter necessary for overwintering, in particular sugars.
What to do in such a situation? - ECOORGANIC recommends to add special fertilizers GROS Rootgrowth 1.0 l / t + ECOLINE Phosphite (K) 0.5 l / t during seed treatment.
These compositions promote faster seed germination and rooting of plants, accelerate the development of the root system of winter cereals, and due to the ability of phosphite to be absorbed at lower temperatures (from + 5 ° C) optimize the process of nutrition and preparation of plants for overwintering.
For the plants that lag behind in growth, we recommend foliar fertilization with a tank mix of GROS Phosphito-NP 1.0 l / ha + ECOLINE Zinc (Chelate) 0.5 l / ha.
