Fast and effective starter
Agro-Start is a nitrogen-, phosphorus-, and potassium-based solution enriched with zinc, boron, and indole-butyric acid (IBA) for soil application in order to activate and stimulate the radicular development of the crop. Phosphorus is in the form of orthophosphates and polyphosphates. Zinc is chelated with citric acid.
Phosphorus is an integral part of metabolic energy (ATP), cell walls and the genetic information (DNA) of the plant. It plays an essential role in cellular multiplication and photosynthesis, hence its importance in the early stages of the plant’s development. Potassium promotes photosynthesis. It contributes to the transport and build-up of sugars. It also takes part in filling out grains, favours better water usage and nitrogen optimization, and increases resistance to frost, drought, and disease. Zinc is crucial for the synthesis of auxins and stimulates plant growth. It also favours the synthesis of acids and proteins. Boron is essential to stabilize cellular membranes (greater nutrient absorption), pollen fertility, fruit set, synthesis of hormones, production and transport of sugars, and calcium assimilation. IBA encourages growth and is especially effective for the formation of roots.
- Ideal for all planted crops. Mix with transplantation water or apply directly on the transplant trays
- Stimulates cuttings to take root
- Quick start and regularity in the crop
- Strengthens resistance against stresses
- Improves crop yield and quality
In conclusion, Agro-Start provides a high level of phosphorus and other elements necessary for radicular growth in young plants. Agro-Start is suitable for transplanting and fertigation. Being in close contact with the radicular system, nutrients are readily available to young plants and, in particular, phosphorus which does not move much in the soil. The synergy between its five nutrients and the IBA allows Agro-Start to reinforce root establishment of the crop right from its earliest growth stage and ensure that roots develop rapidly. The Agro-Start effect is characterized by a robust vigour at the crop’s establishment. Vigorous and well-fed plants are capable of resisting stress better and achieving their full yield potential. Agro-Start is sulphate- and chloride-free and its low salinity index makes it a very safe nutrient for young plants.
