Crops exposed to different environmental stress situations (drought, heat, cold, salinity) that drastically reduce productivity. FitoMaat® is formulated with glycine betaine, a natural osmoprotectant compound that has been proven to protect a plant’s physiological processes when undergoing stress, maintaining growth and production, preventing damage, and aiding in the crop’s recovery.
FitoMaat® additionally contains the amino acid proline, which works in synergy with glycine betaine to enhance protection against stress and lengthen the effects of the latter.
FitoMaat® also incorporates antioxidants that aid the plant’s cells to detoxify, enhancing the efficiency of its anti-stress, osmoprotectant effects.
System and time of application
FitoMaat® can be applied by either foliar sprinkling or fertigation to protect against any potential environmental stress situations. Likewise, FitoMaat® can be used and applied preventively, prior to stress situations, thanks to its fast absorption and its prolonged beneficial effects. FitoMaat® is suitable for use in the prevention of rain cracking in fruits such as cherry, when applied prior to heavy rainfall. FitoMaat® is suitable for use on a large number of crops and phenological development stages.
Stability and storage
FitoMaat® remains stable for at least 3 years from manufacturing date. Store in a cool and well-ventilated place. Do not store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children. Keep away from food, drink and feedstuffs.
FitoMaat® is compatible with most pesticides and fertilisers. However, it is recommended to perform a compatibility test prior to crop application.
