Potassium is an essential nutrient for plants and is required in large amounts for growth and reproduction. It is the second most required nutrient in plants, after nitrogen, and has an effect on the shape, size, color and taste of the fruit. Furthermore, it is involved in the regulation and closing of stomata, regulating CO2 and water absorption (osmoregulation).
Elicitech²® is a formulation based on metabolic activators and amino acids of plant origin from enzymatic hydrolysis (16% w/w), which act by stimulating self- protection mechanisms in plants, improving their metabolic system.
Increase™ is a liquid formulation with 25% of potassium stabilized with EDTA and enhanced by 5% Elicitech²®.
Increase™ provides the following advantages:
- It allows maintaining high levels of turgor. It increases the rate of photosynthesis.
- It increases sugar transport in the phloem. It favors protein synthesis.
- It induces cell elongation.
- It improves the natural defense mechanisms of the plant against stress factors such as cold, drought, salinity, ponding, phytotoxicities, etc.
- It causes an increase in sugar contents, production and gauge.
