Reducing Environmental Stresses and Micronutrient Deficiencies
Environmental stresses are the primary factors influencing yield potential in crops like potatoes, onions, sugar beets and tree fruit. Applications of Megafol® can reduce the impacts of these environmental stresses like heat, hail and drought.
Good irrigation management is key to limiting heat stress as well as reducing potential for moisture-related disorders. However, this can be difficult in large fields where it can take many days to complete an irrigation cycle and the potential for heat and drought stress can become high. Applications of Megafol prior to heat waves is the most effective way to promote a healthier plant’s ability to grow through these conditions.
During times of heat and drought, crops also have a higher micronutrient requirement. Since these nutrients are immobile, soil uptake cannot typically fulfill crop requirements. Megafol combined with a comprehensive micronutrient product like ENC® is an excellent foliar application to tackle both micronutrient deficiencies as well as stress relief.
Megafol contains a blend of highly refined plant extracts that can enhance metabolic functions in your crop and increase their ability to thrive under stressful environmental and biological conditions. ENC contains a complete blend of plant-essential micronutrients. Together, Megafol and ENC are the ultimate summer application for crops to reach their maximum yield potential.
Contact your dealer or local Helena representative for more information on Megafol and ENC.
