You are here Home Agro division Products Foliar fertilizers to adjust the current nutritional state K-gel 175
Foliar fertilizer K-gel 175 is designed to support photosynthesis processes, especially in the late stages of vegetation with prolonged effectiveness due to the gel-forming component.
Put on the market with the registration of ÚKZÚZ (Central Institute for Supervising and Testing in Agriculture) number 3425.
Purpose of Use and Action Mode
It is applied at a time when the leaf assimilation apparatus is fully developed and its functionality determines the intensity of the formation of sugar components in storage (bulbs, tubers) or generative (cereal grain) organs. K-gel 175 is intended for treating the most active parts of plants that are most exposed to incident light radiation.
K and S nutrients and organic gel-forming agents. All components are in fully dissolved active forms.
K2O: 175 g/l, S: 58 g/l
Gel Form Specifics
With conventional foliar fertilizers, due to the considerable fluctuations in air humidity at the time of application, the spray mixture dries quickly and therefore the nutrients that have adhered to leaves cannot be accessed. In gel fertilizers, the gel-forming component ensures better adhesion of the spray mixture to the leaf surface and at the same time slows down drying and water loss. This reduces crystallization and the consequent risk of nutrients falling in the form of crystals off of the leaf surface to the ground. When the humidity rises again, the gel captures water and the crystals of nutrients dissolve, again restoring the process of nutrients entering the leaves.
K-gel 175 contains a wetting agent which significantly increases the contact area of the spray mixture and the leave surface. This leads to a higher effect of nutrients and, in the case of combinations, also plant protection products.
Recommended for Application
|amount of water
field crops, fruit,vegetables, grapevine, hops
3 - 5 l/ha
200 – 600 l/ha
|Temperatures should not fall below 5 °C during the application and for the next few days.
We always recommend performing a miscibility test with the considered combination partners.
We do not recommend mixing with wetting agents due to possible clotting.
