Carrots (Daucus carota) are a herbaceous and generally biennial plant of the Apiaceae family, which produces an edible taproot. Among the most common varieties, root shapes range from globular to long, with lower ends blunt to pointed. Besides the orange-colored roots, white-, yellow-, and purple-fleshed varieties are known. California, Michigan and Texas are the top carrot producing states in the US.
Iron deficiencies can lead to yellowing of leaves between the veins, also known as interveinal chlorosis. A deficiency can lead to small, stunted plants, which can drastically impact crop yields. Depending upon the pH of the soil, the addition of Ferriplus® can serve as a prevention or correction method.
Ferriplus® is a water soluble, EDDHA chelated iron (6%) for use on soils above pH 7.5.
Systemic Pesticide Applications
Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit ® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.
Exit® is an activator-adjuvant comprising a blend of premium-quality esterified seed oil with a proprietary surfactant and humectant system.
During the growing season, the translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. ZMC Express® provides a well-rounded mix of micronutrients to address numerous plant functions occurring during critical growth stages. By delivering more than just one micronutrient, balanced interactions between nutrients within the plant are maintained and the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies or “hidden hunger” can be potentially achieved.
ZMC Express® is a chelated EDTA blend of micronutrients.
