Propel - Foliar Fertilizer
PROPEL – FOLIAR FERTILIZER
PROPEL is a broad-spectrum, super concentrated fertilizer for use in reduced synthetic fertilizer programs on grain crops, pulse crops, rice, etc. It is formulated with high grade macro and micro nutrients, plant extracts, amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and complex carbohydrates. PROPEL can be used alone or in conjunction with chemical inputs in any standard crop management program.
PROPEL will improve soil porosity, drainage and aeration and reduce compaction. In addition, it can improve the water holding capacity of the soil thereby helping plants resist drought and produce better crops in reduced moisture conditions. One estimate indicates that a 5% increase in soil organic matter quadruples the soil's ability to hold and store water.
PROPEL can increase the available nitrogen far in excess of its own content by stimulating soil microbes. Nitrogen is a plant stimulator, regulator and a carrier of elements. For plants to benefit from nitrogen, the elements must first be converted into nitrates. This conversion is carried out by microbes that metabolize nitrogen as an energy source.
BENEFITS OF PROPEL:
- Moves rapidly from leaf surface into the plant
- Helps the plant's natural defence mechanisms to resist plant disease and insect infestations
- Increases available nutrients and improves nitrogen uptake
- Aids in biological nitrogen fixation
- Stimulates root development
- Stimulates and helps sustain indigenous biomass
- Aids in reducing soil compaction
METHODS OF APPLICATION:
PROPEL has proven to be effective on a wide variety of crops and can be applied pre-emergent as well as post-emergent using standard application techniques. These techniques include:
- direct soil injection (liquid kit)
- foliar feeding
PROPEL is 100 percent water soluble and must be applied in water. For new, less dense foliage, apply in 5 gal. water/acre. For mature foliage apply in 10 gal. water/acre. For best results, apply when the plant is cool. Avoid applying immediately before or after a rainfall or when the plant is under water stress. Typical application rate is 1 litre to 1.5 litre/acre
PLANT NUTRIENT REQUIREMENTS:
Healthy productive soil is a combination of minerals, rock, water, air, organic matter (plant and animal residue), microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and protozoa and a variety of insects and worms. In healthy soil this intricate web carries out a process that continually replenishes the soil and maintains long term soil fertility. Plants require 16-17 elements generally referred to as macro-nutrients and trace elements. Macro-nutrients include nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and sulphur (S). Trace elements include, iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn). For optimum plant growth, the soil must be capable of storing these nutrients and transferring them to the roots for uptake by plants. Typically, chemical fertilizers are applied based on NPK values and, since plants require more than copious amounts of NPK to sustain growth, it is fair to say that, sooner or later, a deficiency of trace elements will occur. It is also important to consider the fact that soils are derived from weathered parent material and if the parent material was low in a particular element then, so too is the resulting soil.
