- Speedfol® Citrus SP has been developed for foliar applications of nutrients on citrus crops, like oranges, grapefruit, lime and lemon.
Speedfol® Citrus SP applications help to increase potassium levels in plant tissues. Research has shown that adequate potassium status of citrus crops will result in increased yield levels with a greater number of larger-sized fruits (more pocked boxes), increased °Brix, total soluble solids (TSS), acidity and vitamin C levels, less peel defects (creasing), on increased peel thickness, reduced fruit granulation (hard, dry sacs) and o more intense fruit color.
Speedfol® Citrus SP applications help to maintain optimum crop nutrient levels, which result in increased fruit retention, less flower and fruit drop. Improved plant nutrition, which includes sprays with nitrate nitrogen and potassium, has shown to help citrus plants reduce the negative effects of HLB (citrus greening), a vector transmitted bacterial disease, fatal to citrus.
