Fol-Up contains fulvic acid which is suitable for use directly as a foliar fertiliser or combined with other water-soluble fertilisers (NPK & trace elements). OFS Fol-Up bonds with most plant nutrients and makes them readily available for uptake by plants through foliar sprays, via overhead irrigation or hydroponic systems.
Fulvic acids are essential for plants to obtain their complete nutrition.
Fulvic acids are created by soil-based micro-organisms to make minerals and other nutrients easier for plants to take up.
Few Australian soils have adequate microbial life or enough soil organic matter to produce adequate amounts of fulvic acid.
We recommend using Fol-Up in foliar sprays to get the multiple benefits of fulvic acid cost-effectively.
Always agitate drum contents before use.
0.5% of tank mix; up to 2-3L/ha.
Mix Fol- Up with liquid fertilisers at 0.5% of total mix (1 part of Fol-Up to 200 parts water orfertiliser solution) before application; up to 2-3L/ha.
1-3L per 10,000L water (re-circulating system).
Used to buffer nitrogen and improve uptake; reduces leaf damage from applications of UAN,
Urea and other ammonium fertilisers.
To reduce UAN scorch
Apply 1L-3L/ha Fol-Up in 100L mix, or 1L Fol-Up per 30L UAN.
Contain 10% Potassium Fulvate
Fulvic acid enhances nutrient uptake and plant growth at 10 – 300ppm in the soil or in foliar sprays (multiple references). As plants grow, expand and develop their root system it is not always practical to maintain these levels in the soil. Foliar applied fulvic acids can be a more convenient way to promote growth when plants develop a full canopy.
Following early bloom when fruit begins to size, crops daily nutrient demand can outstrip the ability of the soil to supply nutrients. Fulvic acid can provide extra help to the plants by improving nutrient availability and uptake during such critical growth stages.
