Tuber plants – potatoes, carrots, radish, bulbous plants, beet
PRE-SOWING SEED TREATMENT:
2% BIOHUMAX® water solution. The tubers are soaked in the solution for 24 hours. Treatment by a sprayer is possible. The treated tubers or bulbs are spread inside. They are treated 2-3 times with consecutive turnings and then covered with polythene for 24 hours. After the seeds are uncovered they dry out naturally. The treated seeds must be sown within 3 days.
FERTILIZATION OF THE PLANTS AFTER SOWING IN THE FIELD:
1st soil fertilization (watering):
1% BIOHUMAX® water solution at a watering rate of 100 – 300 liters per 1000 sq. m. within 7 days after sowing.
1st leaf fertilization (spraying):
The spraying is done at a dosage of 100 ml per 1000 sq. m or 1% BIOHUMAX® water solution at the stage of the 3rd leaf of the plant.
2nd leaf fertilization (spraying):
For the potatoes: The spraying is done at a dosage of 100 ml per 1000 sq. m or 1% BIOHUMAX® water solution before full blossoming of the plant.
For the other plants: The spraying is done at a dosage of 100 ml per 1000 sq. m or 1% BIOHUMAX® water solution at the stage of the buttoning of the plant.
ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS (IF POSSIBLE OR REQUIRED):
Periodical leaf fertilization (spraying) after the 2nd leaf spraying is recommended over a period of 15 days to achieve maximum effectiveness of the increase of crop yields of potatoes.
VISUAL EFFECT OF FERTILIZATION WITH BIOHUMAX®:
The treatment of the tubers with BIOHUMAX® results in strong and sound root system. When proper treated during the 1st soil fertilization (watering), 1st and 2nd leaf fertilization (spraying) the pigmentation of the leaves darkens, the number of the female blossoms and the amount of the vegetation biomass multiply. The color of the colorful plants deepens.
RESULTS FROM THE TREATMENT:
- Increases the crop yield up to 60%;
- Controls (up to 100%) the development of grey decay and dark spots on the potatoes;
- Increases the content of starch in the potatoes up to 15%;
- Increases the number and size of the racemes in the flowers;
- Limits the binding of radionuclide and heavy metals in the soil as well as the possibility to penetrate into the tubers and the metabolism process of the plants;
- Decreases the nitrate accumulation in the tubers.
