Why use foliar fertilizer?
Aug 26, 2018
  1. Name card.jpgTo minimise environmental impact. The usage efficiency of foliar applied nutrients is higher than soil applied nutrients. This can be important in environmentally sensitive areas and areas prone to leaching.

  2. To prevent or cure transient nutrient deficiency when nutrient demand exceds root uptake rate. This may be due to poor root development or rapid crop growth. 

  3. To by-pass soil conditions which limit nutrient availability and thereby accelerate plant response. These conditions include adverse soil ph, moisture, texture and aeration.

  4. To target nutrients directly rather than rely on indirect transportation through the soil and roots. examples include preventing nutrient deficiencies of specific organs, eg,fruit. 

  5. To supply nutrients to plants with deep root systems,when soil surface application of fertilizer such as P,K, Ca, Mg and trace element is not effective. 

  6. Therefore foliar fertilisation should not be viewed as a last report, but rather as an active management tool. Indeed foliar fertilisation may become essential in the future for sustainable production in many cropping systerms.
