Soluble P for Lettuce and Leafy Salad Establishment

Phosphorus is prone to lock up in soils, particularly in high pH and magnesium-rich soils. Phosphorus is key in lettuce and leafy Salad establishment, responsible for producing rooting.

Ensuring phosphorus is applied in it’s most available form will benefit the crop agronomically and financially. Multiflo has been expertly formulated to contain a 100% soluble form of phosphorus, making it immediately available to the crop upon application.

The longer the phosphorus remains in the soil, the more unavailable it becomes to the crop. OMEX has developed Polymex a unique additive that helps the phosphate remain available to crops for longer.

Our FACTS qualified advisors are here to help you make the most effective fertiliser and crop nutrition decisions.
