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.

The benefits of Haifa Micro™ - micronutrients fertilizer
  • All micronutrients are in a chelated form, to maximize stability and efficiency
  • Compatibility with a wide range of agrochemicals enables tank-mixing, thus reducing the cost of spray operations by minimizing the number of application needed
  • Haifa Micro™ chelates are absorbed by the plant rapidly and efficiently
  • Haifa Micro™ chelates are fully soluble in water
 
The mechanism of chelates
Chelate is a complex of a micronutrient ion and an organic molecule that "holds" it, called ligand. As long as the ion is attached to the ligand, it is protected from interacting with other ions in the solution, which might turn it unavailable for plant uptake.
 
As the micronutrient ions are consumed by the plant, more ions are released from the holding ligands, thus becoming available for plant uptake.
 
This mechanism maximizes the efficiency of the micro nutrients applied. When Haifa Micro™ is applied by Nutrigation™, the chelates ensure availability of micronutrients in both alkaline and acidic soils.
 
 
Iron (Fe) plays an important role in chlorophyll formation. It is involved in cell division that supports plant growth, and in other vital reactions in the plant.
Typical deficiency symptoms: leaf yellowing, interveinal chlorosis.

Manganese (Mn) is required for photosynthesis and respiration. It improves green color and increases sugar and protein content. Manganese enhances plant tolerance to high light intensity. 
Typical deficiency symptoms: chlorotic mosaic patterns on leaves.

An innovative & efficient high-K foliar formulation

Foliar application of potassic fertilizers is a common practice to increase yields and to improve yield quality of fruit trees and other crops.

In order to supply plants with adequate dose of foliar-applied potassium, repeated sprays are required. Increasing spray concentration to save on applications may result in leaf scorching.
Haifa Bonus™ is a foliar fertilizer developed to enable spraying of highly concentrated solution which reduces the number of applications needed and without scorching of the foliage.
The advantages of Haifa Bonus™ foliar fertilizer
  • Haifa Bonus™ consists of pure, fully-soluble nutrients only.
  • Haifa Bonus™ is free of harmful compounds such as chloride, sodium, perchlorate, excessive sulfate, etc.
  • Haifa Bonus™ is compatible for tank mixing with a large variety of pesticide and fungicides.
  • Haifa Bonus™ contains a specially developed adjuvant for betteradhesion to the leaf surface, improved absorption and prolonged action.

 

Benefit the bonus of Haifa's unique Bonus™ technology

To grant your crops with full benefits of foliar nutrition, Haifa's range of products are formulated to remain on the leaves, and nourish the plant over time. The Haifa Bonus™ technology optimizes the adhesion of the fertilizer to the leaf surface, and improves its absorption.

The advantages of potassium nitrate
Haifa Bonus™ formulas are based on Haifa’s Multi-K™ potassium nitrate. Potassium nitrate contains 100% plant macronutrients: potassium (K) and nitrate-nitrogen (N-NO3). Plants absorb both the potassium and the nitrate rapidly, in a balanced manner. The similar uptake rates of these two ions improve the movement of both potassium and nitrogen in the plant, thus enhancing plant nutrition. Potassium nitrate is free of chloride, sodium and any other elements which are detrimental to plants.
