High-analysis Broad-spectrum Solution is the Answer

Being a High-analysis Broad-spectrum Solution (HBS ) that allows the formulation and manufacture of solutions that contain a high concentration of many different nutrients, all formulated in such a way that is stable and safe for the plant is an RLF-developed technology.

This is a first time technological advance that has neutralised the antagonistic effects that elements can have with each other and the result is revolutionary. Now, specifically formulated products with 12 elements contained in one single, stable, effective solution can be applied to crops and produce.

Only maximum crop yield can be achieved when care is taken to ensure an adequate and balanced supply of ALL nutrients to the plant.

The Benefit of a Bigger Root System

One of the greatest benefits of an RLF Crop Specific Foliar product is the effect it has on root development and growth.

Whilst this forms only a part of the cycle of growth and development for each plant, it is a vital and important stage and function. Plant physiology clearly informs the science of Crop Specific Foliar products and leads to significant benefits for farmers and growers. This is because the larger size root structure gives the plant much greater physical contact with the soil area. Fine hairs give the plant increased surface area, and this allows the plant to use less energy in achieving easier access to available nutrients and soil-based NPK.

This increases plant growth exponentially as the graphic shows.

Crop Specific Foliar products create a ‘wetter’ environment that enables mineralisation to further improve fertiliser up-take and efficiency. This benefit simulates the action of endowing the soil with an additive to make the soil more effective.

But the biggest benefit comes from the larger and thicker root structure with substantially more rhizosphere activity that grows a lot of fine, and very fine hair-like roots. More roots means more plant ‘root exudate’ and this means microbial activity increases in and around these root hairs and results in a very large increase in mineralisation. Mineralisation is the chemical action that unlocks the phosphorus and makes it available to the plant. This action ensures that the plant has access to ‘available’ phosphorus. And, more phosphorus means more yield.

This also means more organic matter returns to the soil for future years, and this is a significant and sustainable benefit.

Leading the World with a Proven Product

RLF first developed Broad-spectrum compound foliar fertilisers in 1993.

These products have been continuously updated and improved since this time with over 20 years of on-farm use. Crop Specific Foliar products represent the latest in a long pedigree of innovative technological development. Crop Specific Foliars’ are a proven product, extensively trialled and tested; but most importantly used over the past twenty years by farmers world wide. Today the use of Crop Specific Foliar forms part of normal farm practice for millions of RLF customers.

Easy to Use

Crop Specific Foliar is easy to use. It has a substantial compatibility profile and can be sprayed in conjunction with many crop protection chemicals, other fertilisers or used in irrigation systems. This reduces labour costs and makes the process of on-farm application simple. Crop Specific Foliar products are High-analysis and Broad-spectrum, in a clean solution that is readily dispersed when mixed with water. It is safe on equipment and does not present any blockage issues. Farmers can safely use these products year after year as part of their normal farm practices.
