Agro-B Mobility 4-0-0 with 10% B
Boron with greater mobility
Agro-B Mobility is a liquid foliar nutrient with 10% boron and 4% nitrogen designed for fast and safe application and is a preventive treatment against boron deficiencies. The boron in Agro-B Mobility is complexed with two organic molecules, ethanolamine and sorbitol, for greater solubility, quicker absorption, and creates faster boron translocation in the plant.
Boron contributes to pollen formation and vitality and pollination in flowering crops. By reducing the flower abortion rate, Agro-B Mobility increases the number of flowers. More fertilized flowers, more grains, and more fruits. Boron plays an important role in the structure of cell walls, synthesis of hormones, and the transfer of sugars toward fruits, roots, and grains. Boron facilitates the binding of atmospheric nitrogen. Boron increases calcium assimilation and mobility in the plant. Boron improves resistance to cold and hydric stress by regulating water input in cells. Sorbitol and ethanolamine, part of the Agro-B Mobility solution, have proven anti-stress qualities (shortage of water, low temperature, salinity).
Boron deficiency may cause physiological disorders in many crops: hollow heart/brown core in potato tubers, roots of beets, turnips, and rutabaga, stems of broccoli and celery; cork spots in apples; coulure and millerandage in grapes. A lack of boron also increases the risk of bitter pit in apples as it plays a key role in calcium absorption. Thus, boron deficiency will have negative repercussions on marketable yields.
- Better source of boron through foliar application
- Pollen viability and good pollination
- Good fruit development
- Cell wall stability
- Formation and transport of sugars
- Assimilation and mobility of calcium
- Assimilation of nitrogen
- Better fruit quality
- Resistance against diseases (fusariosis, verticilliosis, viruses) and to insects
In conclusion, the application of Agro-B Mobility improves the plant’s overall state and facilitates its diverse metabolic processes, translating into a greater harvest, better crop quality, and increased yield revenues. With early application, Agro-B Mobility prevents nutritional shortcomings when growth begins, thus providing good flowering development and fertilization. With late application, Agro-B Mobility contributes to fruit ripening and protects the crop against physiological problems that reduces the crop’s market value. It is also recommended post-harvest in fruit trees to build a nutrient reserve thus ensuring a good vegetative and flowering boost for the following season. This is even more important if climate conditions at the end of winter/beginning of spring are unfavourable.
