Alexin

0-0-8

A liquid potassium, calcium, magnesium and boron fertilizer to activate plant metabolism (containing 8% potassium, 2.4% calcium, 0.8% magnesium, 0.2% boron)

Advantages of Alexin:

  • Induces the production of phytoalexins assisting the plant when under stress.
  • Can be safely included in a disease management program, together with fungicides and bactericides
  • Compatible with most pesticides

Role of Potassium in the Plant:

  • Improves drought resistance by regulating water loss through the leaves
  • Aids in cell lignification and strength
  • Beneficial effect on disease suppression
  • Reduces pathogen food levels in plants

Role of Boron in the Plant:

  • Encourages the uptake and movement of cation nutrients (K, Mg, Ca) within the plant
  • Transports sugars through the plant
  • Essential for seed, pollen development, seed set

Role of Calcium in the Plant:

  • Cell division and cell wall strength
  • Deficiencies cause cells to collapse resulting in internal disorders and retards terminal growth

Role of Magnesium in the Plant:

  • Forms the nucleus of the chlorophyll molecule which promotes healthy green growth
  • Aids the plant in increasing natural resistance to harmful environmental conditions (drought and disease)
