Apple fertilization

Find out the recommended average rate of nutrients, and a program for fertigation and foliar feeding

Plant population: 600-700 Trees/ha.
Soil type: light to medium.

Phosphate should be supplied according to leaf analysis.
Divide applications into weekly amounts and apply with at least three hours of irrigation.

Nonbearing orchards

The recommended average rates of nutrients (Kg/ha) for nonbearing trees.

The most reliable and effective way to make the availability of nutrients coincide with plant requirements is by controlling their release into the soil solution, using controlled release fertilizers. This is accomplished by encapsulating fertilizer granules in a polymeric coating, employing Haifa’s Multicote technology.

 

A single pre-planting application of Multicote™ controlled release fertilizer (CRF) can fill a crop’s nutritional requirements throughout its growth season. Multicote™ products are designed to feed plants continuously, at maximum nutrient uptake efficiency. Multicote™ controlled release fertilizers save labor and application costs, enable application independent of the irrigation system, and require no sophisticated equipment.

the controlled release fertilizers granules are applied to the soil, the coating acts as a semi-permeable barrier that allows continuous release of nutrients to the root zone.

The benefits of controlled release nutrition
Haifa Multicote controlled release fertilizer
  • Optimal plant development - provide plants with balanced nutrition, according to their needs, throughout the growth cycle. This ensures optimal development and maximum high quality yields.
     
  • Less fertilizers are needed - products release available nutrients at a rate that matches plant uptake. This minimizes fertilizer losses, and enables considerable reduction of application rates – up to 30%, as compared to conventional granular or liquid fertilizers.
     
  • Saves labor and time - A single application covers a crop’s nutritional requirements throughout its growth cycle. This saves labor and costs associated with fertilizer application. It also eliminates fertilization from the growers’ routine tasks, freeing them to concentrate on other growth requirements.
     
  • Simple application - fertilizers are applied directly to the soil, requiring no sophisticated injection or dosing system.  
     
  • Environmentally friendly - minimizes losses through leaching, volatilization or fixation, thus preventing environmental contamination.
