DEFENDER P is a foliar fertilizer rich in phosphorus, which is combined with potassium and microelements for maximum vegetal plant nutrition.
Phosphorus is a critical element for plant nutrition. As a component of ATP, phosphorus is needed for the conversion of light into chemical energy during photosynthesis. Since ATP takes part in biosynthesis of many biomolecules, phosphorus is important for plant growth as well as flower and seed formation.
The uptake of available phosphorus by plants is affected by abiotic factors such pH and temperature. A decrease in the availability of phosphorus in the soil can directly be noted in form of a plant deficiency, which is particularly serious in rapidly growing crops such as some fruit trees, cereals or potato.
Application of DEFENDER P ensures an adequate level of phosphorus (P) in plants during moments of maximum necessity. DEFENDER P is specially formulated to be rapidly absorbed by leaves or roots to ensure maximum nutritional benefits, generating elevated harvest yields and high fruit quality.
System and time of application
DEFENDER P is recommended for prevention and overcoming of phosphorus deficiencies and for improving crops growth. Apply using enough water to completely wet all foliage. DEFENDER P can be also applied in drip irrigation.
Stability and storage
DEFENDER P is stable for at least three years since manufacturing date. Store in the closed original container in a cool and ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Keep away from food, drink and animal feed. Keep out of the reach of children.
DEFENDER P is highly compatible with most pesticides and fertilizers. For application with plant protection products follow pesticide label directions and make jar test for compatibility.
