The Stress Reliever


What is It?

  • C3 is a low salt index liquid fertilizer for in-crop spray.
  • Also available with high K analysis (6-12-12) and as C3 + 0.5% Cu.
  • Contains the Stress Reliever Technology™ (offsets energy re-allocation during stress periods).
  • The product is available in 10L jugs, 450L and 1000L IBC’s.

When & Why Use It?

  • Use with the herbicide at 3-5 leaf stage.
  • C3 boosts the metabolism, provides energy (high Phosphorus analysis) and relieves the crop from early-season stress (cold, wet, physical or chemical injury, …).
  • C3 is compatible with most commonly used pesticides (see compatibility charts).
  • Use after hail storm with SuperB (10% Boron) to mitigate tissue damage and re-stimulate growth and branching.
  • Use to advance crop maturity.

What to Expect?

  • Improved root and shoot growth and development.
  • Stronger plants with an enhanced ability to cope with environmental stresses.
  • Re-bouncing from periods of stress (from yellowing to greener crop)
  • C3 preserves yield potential.
  • Less stalling and an advancement of crop maturity, hence an advantage in yield and quality.

Size Options



Application Guidelines

  • Apply C3 at 1 L/ac with a minimum of 10 gal/ac of water.
  • Can be used alone or in combination with pesticides (see compatibility charts).
  • Can be mixed with some other micronutrients (i.e., Cu, B).
  • Recommended for cereal crops at the 3-5 leaf stage, canola at the 1-4 leaf stage and peas at the 1-6 node stage.
  • Past these stages, check with your local OMEX rep for other available products.
  • Tank-mix with 0.5 L/ac of SuperB on hail-damaged crops.
  • Add C3 to the water before adding the pesticide when tank mixing. Add C3 last when tank mixing with Liberty or Infinity. If applied with SuperB, add SuperB last to the tank.
