There are 17 elements essential to plants. They are the building blocks of plant life. Without enough of all these crucial nutrients, plants will not thrive, and crop productivity is severely compromised. Plant growers must therefore ensure their crops are nourished well.
Multi nutrients are the perfect combinations of all the major nutrients .Potassium (K) and secondary nutrients Sulphur (S), Magnesium (Mg) and Calcium (Ca) make a particularly powerful contribution to good harvests. They significantly improve yields and they also benefit various aspects of quality. Nourishing crops with these four nutrients result in more and higher value fresh fruit or vegetables and, as a result, greater income to the growers.
Crop quality depends on replenished nutrient supply.
Growing fruits and vegetables for high yield and quality depletes nutrient content in potting soil, therefore for the next crop the nutrients has to be replenished. Therefore, nutrients need to be replenished through fertilizer and manure applications to sustain an adequate supply of plant nutrients to the crops and maintain the viability of the soil.
COMPONENTS AND ROLE OF MULTI-NUTRIENTS
QUANTITY OF APPLICATION:
Apply 2-3 teaspoons of multi nutrient per plant once in 15 days interval for balanced nutrient supply and healthy growth.
MODE OF ACTION AND UPTAKE:
These multi nutrients granules will be having polymer coating over its surface which facilitates slow release of nutrients. It will very elastic and highly resistant. Over a period a time, the solution inside the granule will produce aroma thereby it attracts the active / white roots of the plant and roots will absorbs the specific quantity of nutrients required. The nutrients will be released till 5-6 months and later it will degrade in soil itself (biodegradable)
