K50 – the grapes change colour earlier than the control 🍇😎

OMEX K50 is a concentrated inorganic plant nutrition and health promoter containing potassium and nitrogen.  The main role of potassium within the plant is as a water regulator and in this role it influences many plant processes. It is particularly important in the regulation of cell water content, cell turgidity and rates of transpiration. The translocation of photosynthesates and a number of plant enzymes all depend on potassium.

Potassium is a major nutrient which is required by all crops. It is second only to nitrogen in the amounts required by the crop. It is highly mobile and is quickly distributed within the plant. The main role of potassium within the plant is as a water regulator and in this role it influences many plant processes.

Potassium has a role in the translocation of photosynthates and plant enzymes. However, it is particularly important in the regulation of cell water content, cell turgidity and rates of transpiration due to its influence over the opening and closing of stomata. The stomata influence the rate at which carbon dioxide moves into the plant, which is the building block of carbohydrate synthesis and ultimately brix in fruiting crops.

Low levels of potassium will seriously affect crop growth, quality and yield. OMEX K50 is a unique formulation which carries a high concentration of potassium. The high potassium analysis will ensure optimum uptake of the potassium in situations where it is required.   Also in carbonate form OMEX K50 helps the plant create a leaf environment uninviting to leaf pathogens such as powdery mildew and botrytis.

Apply when deficiency is suspected or diagnosed – repeat as necessary at 10-14 day intervals.

It may seem obvious that a healthy plant is more able to withstand the effects of pests and diseases. But at OMEX Agrifluids, this concept has been taken further with the development of a range of liquid fertilizers, designed to maximise the health and vigour of crops and thereby to increase their ability to withstand pests and diseases.

Use of these Plant Health Promoters in a programme can result in fewer agrochemicals being required. This approach fits in with the principles of Integrated Crop management, which is welcomed by growers, processors and supermarkets.

Plant Health Promoters improve plant nutrient health and disease resistance, improve rooting action, increase fruit set and increase yield.
