Phyto C (Cold)

0-0-6

A liquid potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium and boron fertilizer to promote cold tolerance (containing 6% potassium, 1.8% calcium, 2% zinc, 0.6% magnesium, 0.25% boron)

Role of Potassium in the Plant:

  • Essential for enzyme activation
  • Improves sugar levels and flavour
  • Improves drought resistance and stress tolerance
  • Increases resistance to disease
  • Controls stomatal openings and influences transpirational activity

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 Zinc in the Plant:

  • Helps winterize perennial crops
  • Necessary for auxin production (growth regulators)

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)
