The Zinc Biofort­ification Solution

Analysis (10-0-0 with 9% Zn)

What Is it?

  • Low salt index liquid foliar fertilizer with Nitrogen and high Zinc content.
  • Highly soluble and available form of Zinc.
  • The product is available in 10L jugs, 450L and 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • On most crops grown in Canada as our soils and grains contain lower contents of Zinc.
  • Recommended for crops grown on high pH soils, sandy and light textured soils, high organic matter soils, heavy manured or limed land, heavy textured soils with high K or Mg and any soils showing low Zinc contents.
  • Use to prevent or correct Zinc deficiency, especially under cold wet conditions.
  • Use to improve grain quality and seed vigor.

What To Expect?

  • Foliar Advance Zn promotes cell growth, secondary root development, formation of new leaves, vigorous shoot growth and an improved stress tolerance.
  • Foliar Advance Zn prevents/corrects Zinc deficiency and increases Zinc content in the tissues.
  • When applied at the milk/soft dough stage in cereals, Foliar Advance Zn increases the Zinc and protein content of the grain.
  • The increase in Zn content automatically decreases Cd content especially in durum wheat and flax.
  • Excellent response to Zinc by pulse crops, oilseeds and cereals.

Application Guidelines
