Cereals in Autumn 2020 – Strength for the Winter: S, Cu and Mn are VITAL


nutrition supply and vitality combined with plant health and stress tolerance

Our recommendation:




3 l/ha VITALoSol® GOLD SC (S, Cu, Mn) 

The foliar application with VITALoSol® GOLD SC will strengthen the plants against unfavourable weather conditions and diseases.

The combination of sulphur, copper and manganese in VITALoSol® GOLD SC has a positive effect on winter hardiness, stress and disease tolerance.

Key facts about the nutrients S, Cu and Mn:


  • an optimal sulphur supply will enhance the N-utilisation, increasing yield and reduce the nitrogen surplus
  • 1 kg Sulphur is required to utilize 10-15 kg N
  • optimized S-nutrition can cause sulphur-induced resistance to diseases

Copper (Cu)

  • important for plant respiration and strong cell walls (lignin synthesis)
  • effective against diseases
  • necessary for winter hardiness and N-utilization 

Insufficient supply with manganese (Winter barley, Germany)
