The unique formulation of Crop Rooter®-P combines mobile forms of Phosphorus with Nitrogen and Potassium, all essential macronutrients for healthy crop development.
Timed foliar applications of Crop Rooter®-P ensure effective crop uptake of nutrients leading to improved root and shoot development even when soil reserves may be less accessible due to an initial poor root system or cold, wet cloddy soils hampering nutrient availability.
Crop Rooter®-P is a new generation foliar NPK solution based on the highly mobile form of Phosphorus known as Phosphite (PO3–). This molecule is able to move through the major transport routes of the plant (the xylem and phloem) far more quickly than conventional Phosphate fertiliser and at the same time help uptake of the available nutrients.
