Soil Health

Problem

Fruiting Vegetables & Soil Borne Disease

Fruiting vegetables are generally grown in the same greenhouse soil year after year. This provides very little opportunity for rotation between crops to reduce disease burden for future crops.

 

Solution

Introduce a soil health program, which includes beneficial microbes and soil activators/enhancers to naturally suppress soil pathogens.

Products

Mycogel
Greater access to nutrients and water; contains beneficial fungi (mycorrhiza)
Sabel-X Hort
Next generation endophytic trichoderma
T90
(Speak with us about this product)
Soil amendment containing plant health elicitors which induce a systemic defence response in the plant

Fruiting Vegetable Profitability

Profitability

Early to Market

The most profitable crops are those that can be harvested early in the season when demand is high and supply is limited. The Early to Market Program helps growers produce yield and quality early in the season when it is a challenge.

Shape / Size / Sugar

Fruiting Vegetable Production Constraints

Problem

Heat Stress

Solution

Use stress mitigators to reduce the impact of heat stress on crops.

Products

Bombardier
Contains specific balance aminogram and antioxidants that builds a strong stress mitigating profile in crops.
Super Kelp
Naturally stimulates root growth and reduces crop stress

Problem

Alkaline Soils

Solution

High soil pH reduces the availability of nutrients to the plant, particularly phosphorus and trace elements.

Products

Batallón
Solubilises phosphorus and releases potassium
Improves soil structure
Soil Enhancer
Improves soil performance
Soil Activator
Activates microbial activity

Problem

Water & Fertiliser Efficiency

Solution

Focus on soil health and improve soil capacity to hold moisture.

Reduce the impact of salinity.

Products

Mycogel
Greater access to nutrients and water; contains beneficial fungi (mycorrhiza)
Sabel-X Hort
Helps crops through moisture stress
Next generation endophytic trichoderma
Fix & Release
Uniform soil moisture
Moversalt
