Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea) prefer a long, warm growing season and are typically planted from mid to late spring through mid-summer, after the threat of frost has passed. When you are growing peanuts, plant them in well-draining, sandy soil that is rich in organic matter. The peanut, an important oil and food crop, is currently grown on approximately 42 million acres worldwide. It is the third major oilseed of the world next to soybean and cotton. Peanuts are grown commercially in 13 states within the US.
Plant exudates known as carboxylates are exuded from a plant root system as a function of cell division occurring. The exudates of most significance are typically found to be deficient in the soil, leading to a tie up of key nutrients such as phosphorus, iron, calcium, manganese, and zinc in the soil. The addition of C.A.L.F.A® aids in this conversion of nutrients to plant available forms during critical growth periods, preventing deficiencies that may impact crop yield and quality.
C.A.L.F.A.® is a proprietary blend of 40% nature-based carboxylic acid solution designed to release soil nutrients into plant available forms during critical plant growth and development stages.
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.
Residual Pesticide Applications
Environmental pests come in a wide variety of forms including, diseases, insects, invasive weeds and more. The methods for controlling these pests vary as well. Some solutions require a pesticide to remain active and in contact with the leaf surface for an extended period for best results. Nu-Film-17® is uniquely formulated to be combined with pesticides that require residual activity on the leaf or fruit surface. These include contact or ingestion-based pesticides that have direct activity on the target pests.
Nu-Film-17® is a superior deposition, sticker, and extender adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene.
During the season, the translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. Microplex® 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 can be potentially achieved.
Microplex® is a chelated EDTA blend of eight micronutrients designed for maximum plant response in foliar or soil applications.
