Foliar fertilisation in sugar beet

The soil herbicides used in sugar beet cultivation must keep the crops weed-free for a long period of time. Herbosol® safeguards the effect of your soil herbicides. Better distribution of the spray liquid on the soil better adhesion to the soil higher concentration in the upper soil layer less leaching.

Addition of 0.4 l/ha Herbosol® to the soil herbicides during the 3rd application will secure the soil active substances with regard to the long-term effect on light soils, increase to 0.6 l/ha on heavy soils if the humus content is low, reduce to 0.2 l/ha Herbosol® if the humus content is high - for better tolerance and healthy growth.

High demand for boron and manganese

Drought, cold or excessively high pH values in the soil compromise the nutrient availability. Especially deficiency boron and manganese is of economic importance in sugar beet.

For a sufficient supply with the micro’s boron and manganese, we recommend one or two applications with Lebosol®-AqueBoron SC 2 – 3 l/ha + Lebosol®-Manganese GOLD SC 1 l/ha between 6 leaf growth stage and row closure.

You can achieve an improved yield and higher vitality of your sugar beet stands through an optimised phosphorus, potassium and magnesium supply. A balanced phosphorus and potassium supply is necessary, especially to improve the initial development and the energy and water balance. For this purpose, we recommend the application of 2 times 6 l/ha Lebosol®-PK-Max from the 6-leaf stage.

Magnesium but also sulphur deficiency can be observed in sugar beet, especially during drought due to reduced mobility in the soil, but also after rain occurrence due to leaching into deeper soil layers.

Magnesium is necessary for the build-up of chlorophyll. Sulphur is a component of essential amino acids. Sulphur metabolism is of great importance for plant resistance, as it provides various ways of warding off fungal pathogens. Sugar beet plants weakened by sulphur deficiency are more prone to infection of powdery mildew (Erysiphe betae) than those that are well supplied.

For sufficient magnesium and sulphur supply we recommend the application of Lebosol®-MagSOFT SC 3 – 5 l/ha one or two times beginning at the 6 leaf-stage
