Saltex is a salt brine, based on sodium chloride from mined sources, containing 12.5% Na2O.
To maximise the benefits of Saltex applications in May and June should be made in warm, humid conditions.
Apply 1123 litres/ha (100 gallons/ac) of undiluted Saltex. The application should be split into 2 doses of 562 litres/ha up until mid/late June or made as a single dose for later applications
The sugar beet and red beet crops respond to sodium and salt has been used for many years on the crops.
In controlled trials, treated sugar beet crops show improved vigour following application and sugar levels were increased by 0.8% at harvest.
