Bud to fruit – your nutrition mate.

NPKS 5-0-0-0 + 22% Ca, 4.8% Zn, 4.8% Mg, 0.14% B

BENEFITS OF BUDMATE®

• Highly micronised, controlled released, low salt index calcium, magnesium and zinc. Suitable for all crops.

• Pre and post bud burst nutrition that improves fruit set and quality.

• Safe to use formulation that can be used during flowering.

• Formulated in carefully controlled ratios so the crop receives the essential nutrients specific to it growth stage.

• Activated Zinc and Boron to speed pollen tube formation, pollination & fruit set.

• Highly micronised calcium, magnesium and zinc

• A premium post harvest source of essential nutrients for cell differentiation and bud development

THE IMPORTANCE OF CALCIUM

Calcium is required for the cellulose precursors for cell wall formation. It also stabilises cell membranes and protects them – an important attribute under stress conditions. In fruit crops it is required in high quantities and is important for fruit quality and shelf life. It is also known that when plants are threatened by infection, calcium binds to a protein called calmodulin that prompts plants to manufacture salicylic acid (SA), a close chemical relative of aspirin. SA acts as a signal molecule that kicks off a series of reactions that help defend against external threats (SAR response).

THE IMPORTANCE OF MAGNESIUM

Magnesium forms part of the cell walls and is also an essential part of the chlorophyll molecule. This is essential for photosynthesis and therefore most other plant functions. Magnesium is very mobile in the plant and deficiencies are seen in the old leaves with inconsistent chlorosis.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ZINC

Pollen tubes and shoot tips have a high requirement for zinc at the sites of protein synthesis. Zinc is involved in DNA replication in protein molecules as well as in gene expression within plants. It is not mobile and thus may require re-application in crops with a high zinc requirement. Deficiency shows up in new growth.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BORON

Boron is needed for sugar movement within the plant, as well as formation of new cells at growing points. Boron also affects pollination and seed development.
