Using liquid organic fertilizers in conjunction with mineral fertilizers

According to the research results it is recommended to reduce mineral fertilizers application rate by 30% on condition that they are used in conjunction with Hermes Agri-Company Ltd preparations. It’s possible owing to available NPK in humic fertilizers and also because humic substances promote absorption of soil nutrients which were unavailable before.

If an apparent nitrogen deficiency is observed, then it’s possible to add in mixture not more than 5 kg of carbamide in calculation for physical substance just before the application in conjunction with Hermes Agri-Company Ltd preparations.

Using liquid organic fertilizers in conjunction with chemical weed and pest killers

1. Weeds produce endogens, the internal bioactive substances, which provide their stability against environment.  Humates, the external bioactive substances, can depress endogens production. This reinforces herbicides action against weeds. When getting inside of plants, humic substances are known to promote cultured plants stability against diseases, which altogether decreases fungicide load.

2. Humic compounds being a natural complex of biologically active substances genetically allied to plants, help plants endure the abiotic stress.

Adaptogenic and anti-stress effect is conditioned by the following:  

  • Increase of cell membranes penetrability by the humic substances components;
  • Increase of gene system inner energy level. This enables to transfer energy to the parts of genes which are responsible for immunity.
  • Acceleration and normalization of the exchange processes. 


Thus the possibility of using liquid organic fertilizers in conjunction with chemical weed and pest killers is:

  • saving money by reducing the use of pesticides by 30%; 

  • decreasing  chemical and pesticides load on soil; 

  • softening plants stress after applying pesticides.

Notice:

  • use water with the temperature over 13 degrees Centigrade when making a solution;
  • increase the rate of liquid concentrates if there’s a high water hardness;
  • make compatibility test for the mixture before using liquid organic fertilizers in conjunction with chemical weed and pest killers.
