The application of foliar fertilizers in ornamental crops can be very effective and enhance quality,

The application of foliar fertilizers in ornamental crops can be very effective and enhance quality,

sales value and profit of cropping ornamental plants. 

 

Aminosol® for better growth and root development

Aminosol® is used in the cultivation of ornamental plants since more than 25 years. For better growth and strong root development, seedlings

 and young plants can be dipped in an Aminosol® and water solution with the concentration of 1 % Aminosol® .

 

Aminosol® for improving stress tolerance and quality

In young and redy-to-sell plants, the application of Aminosol® in combination with plant protection products can improve the appearance of the crops (shining leaves), the spot formation will be reduced and the wetting- and adhesion effect on the leaf will improve as well.

In a single application for stimulating resistance we recommend several applications of Aminosol® with 100 - 300 ml Aminosol®/100 l water

in following crops: primula, pansy, viola, Bellis), bloomer (cyclamen, Christmas stars, blazing little Kathe) patch plants and outdoor plants (geraniums, fuchsias, begonia, petunia), moorland patch plants (sourish gentian, Japanese Lavelheide, Torfmyrthe) and Azerca cultures (Ericas, heath grass).

Fluid main nutrient fertilizers Lebosol-Nutriplant® with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to promote the generative and vegetative growth of ornamental plants

We recommend our Lebosol-Nutriplant® - product series for different stages of the ornamental plants. At the beginning of growth and the promotion of the rootening Lebosol-Nutriplant® 6-12-6 or Lebosol-Nutriplant® 5-20-5 has proved itself.

Lebosol-Nutriplant® 12-4-6 is primarily used to promote the vegetative growth.

A balanced nutrient relation to the generative growth is found in Lebosol-Nutriplant® 8-8-6.

The nitrogenous fertilizer solution Lebosol-Nutriplant® 36 is used to the supplement of the nitrogen fertilization or to the improved coloration, e.g., with bloomers.

Stimulating tolerance against frost in cold cultures, e.g. Primula, pansy, viola, Bellis

Frost means stress for the plants. An optimized nutrition with potassium and boron can improve the frost tolerance.

Boron is stimulating the absorption of potassium. By increasing the osmotic pressure and accumulating potassium or sugar in the plant cells, potassium will enhance the frost hardiness.

In the event of frost, only ice is formed between the cells, the cell membrane remains intact.

Application recommendation

Before frost events 1 - 2 application with Aminosol®  2.0 l/ha + Lebosol®-Robustus SC 1.0 l/ha + Lebosol®-Kalium 450 with 5.0 l/ha.

In moorland patch plants (sourish gentian, Japanese Lavelheide, Torfmyrthe) and Calluna Vulgaris (Erica / heath) we recommend the application of Lebosol®-Kalium-Plus. Potassium phosphonate is improving the plant’s resistance for better root and leaf health.

 Application recommendation

For vitalization and improving resistance we recommend 2-5 application with Lebosol®-Kalium-Plus or Lebosol®-Magnesium-Plus with a dose rate of 200 - 300 ml/100 l water.

Despide high iron oxide contents in substrates, an undersupply with iron can cause iron chlorose in ornamental plants.

In this case Lebosol®-Eisen-Citrat GOLD provides a fast nutrient uptake and efficacy especially in Surfinia, Millenbells, Primula or roses.

 

Application recommendation

Lebosol®-Eisen-Citrat GOLD can be applied during vegetation with 2 - 5 application and a dose rate of 1.0 l/100 l water (not during flowering!).
