Moderate to high sensitivity to the deficiency of: Mg, Mo, Zn
Low to moderately sensitivity to the deficiency of: B, Cu, Fe, Mn
(the sensitivity to the deficiencies of these nutrients can vary in function of the variety)
Benefits with Fructol NF
With its Fructol NF program, BMS Micro-Nutrients obtained always very good results (increase in yield) on peas. Fructol NF assures a good fertility of the flowers and an optimal fruit set. At least 2 applications with Fructol NF are necessary, the first just before bloom (or when the first flowers are opening) and the second 10 to 14 days later. A third application can be done again 10 to 14 days after the second application.
Benefits with Chelal BMo
It is also recommended to apply also Chelal BMo (or Chelal B) just after germination when the plants have 2 to 4 leaves. This treatment will stimulate the development of the root system and will also improve the formation of the nodules on the root, which contain the Rhizobium bacteria responsible for the fixation of nitrogen for the plants.
In order to obtain the best effect of the Fructol NF/Chelal BMo program it is essential that the crop has no other deficiency. If the availability of an other nutrient is limited the program has to be complemented with an application of this specific element. Deficiencies of magnesium, manganese and zinc are often observed on this crop.
