The dynamic assimilation of nitrogen
Agro‑Ammo is a liquid nutrient that contains nitrogen and sulphur. Agro‑Ammo stimulates growth and restores plant vigour. It is indicated for every crop and it must be used based on soil or tissue analyses or as soon as deficiency symptoms appear. So that the plant makes better use of the nitrogen and sulphur, apply Agro‑Ammo with a nitrogen solution to provide an adequate N:S ratio of 5:1. For more information on Agro‑Ammo, consult your agronomic adviser.
Agro-Ammo combines nitrogen and sulphur, in balanced proportions, designed to prevent and correct sulphur and nitrogen deficiencies for crops in risk situations. Nitrogen and sulphur are inseparable and vital to high performance production, and application in the early stages of the plant’s development helps to avoid stunted growth. Agro-Ammo fully optimizes the nitrogen-sulphur synergy.
Nitrogen is the plant’s vegetative growth motor (component of amino acids, proteins, nucleic acids, chlorophyll). Sulphur is an indispensable constituent of essential sulphur amino acids (cysteine, cystine, and methionine). Sulphur activates photosynthesis, the energy metabolism, and many enzymes. Sulphur improves crops’ use of nitrogen. Sulphur content acts on yield, and on protein quality and quantity. Sulphur in grains influences the baking quality of cereals. In fact, wheat grain sulphur content is closely related to dough elasticity. Sulphur improves the cysteine sulfoxides content in onions (onion piquant) and glucosinolates in the cabbage family. Plants with high sulphur content show greater tolerance to diseases and parasites.
- Maximizes the effect of herbicides (reduces the effect of hard water and other metals in the tank mix)
- Excellent source of sulphur
- Better nitrogen assimilation
- Food quality (amino acids, vitamins, oils)
- Production of self-defense substances
- Increases the protein rate in wheat
- Improves wine quality (assimilable nitrogen in grape musts, aromas)
En conclusion, late inputs of Agro‑Ammo will optimize quality potential and crop yields. In high risk situations, the strategy is to promote early inputs of Agro‑Ammo with the goal of avoiding any loss of yield and quality. Agro‑Ammo is the solution for the enhanced quality of musts and wine. Its application at the veraison stage helps to increase yeast-assimilable nitrogen and improve fermentability and aroma potential of wine.
In many cases, spray water contains free-flowing metals (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, micronutrients) that antagonize the active ingredients of some herbicides like glyphosate. Agro‑Ammo conditions water to prevent these metals of becoming antagonists.
