Just as we find it hard to do our best work when we’re stressed out, crops can suffer from a range of stressful conditions, which can cause poor growth and development, stalling and yield loss.
To help crops better tolerate stresses caused by weather, soil conditions, insects, diseases and herbicide application, OMEX has developed Stress Reliever Technology™. All three products in our Stress Reliever family – C3, P3 and Nutri-Boost – contain vital macro- and micro-nutrients along with this beneficial technology to keep crops thriving, even under adverse conditions, and bounce back from damage. In addition, relieving the crop from stress allows it to go through its normal life-cycle without interruption, translating into earlier days to maturity at the end of the season.
C3 - Stress Reliever for Canola and Cereals
Formulated for use on canola and cereals, C3 is a low-salt liquid foliar fertilizer with a 6-12-6 analysis. C3 has a high phosphorus percentage to provide energy, while boosting plant metabolism and providing the crop with relief from early season stresses like cold and/or excess moisture. You can expect stronger, more resilient plants and improved yield and quality.
C3 is recommended for use on canola at the 1-4 leaf stage, cereal crops at 3-5 leaf, and can also be used on peas at the 1-6 node stage. It can be used alone, at herbicide timing, or tank-mixed with pesticides and/or other micronutrients, such as copper and boron, as needed. Along with the standard formulation, C3 is also available with a high potassium analysis (6-12-12) and in a formulation containing 0.5% copper, to address specific nutrient deficiencies.
P3 - Stress Reliever for Pulses
Like C3, P3 is designed for in-crop spray to help all pulse crops tolerate a range of environmental and chemical stresses. Formulated specifically for pulses, this liquid foliar fertilizer contains a high analysis of calcium, crucial for nodule formation and root development, and important in the uptake and metabolism of nitrogen and phosphorus.
P3 is used at the 1-6 node stage for peas and the 1-9 node stage for lentils and chickpeas to boost plant metabolism, relieve plants from early-season stresses, and advance maturity. It is compatible with pesticides and recommended for use at herbicide timing to protect plants from injury.
Give Stressed Crops a Boost with Nutri-Boost
Our third stress-buster, Nutri-Boost, is a liquid foliar fertilizer with a high phosphorus content and a full package of micronutrients (6-17-5 + micropackage). It is recommended for use on all crops at the 3-5 leaf stage to provide energy, boost metabolism, improve growth and advance maturity. Expect strong, healthy crops that can withstand stressful conditions and recover faster without stalling.
And, don’t forget – after a hail storm, C3, P3 and Nutri-Boost with Stress Reliever Technology™ can be used with boron-rich Super B or KB78 to kickstart the healing process in hail-damaged plants. This stress-relieving combination mitigates tissue damage, while stimulating branching and growth, to help crops recover quickly.
