Post harvest is one of the most important times to address the nutritional needs of plants- so that next year’s bloom and crop has everything it needs from the very start.
The important nutrients for this time of year are Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, and Boron. Nutrient Technologies, Inc. has 3 products that are important components for most post-harvest applications: TECH-SPRAY® Hi-K, TECH-GROTM B-17 Boric Acid SprayTM, and TECH-FLO® Zeta Zinc 22%.
TECH-SPRAYTM Hi-K 0-26-28 is a water-soluble liquid concentrate that is a combination of Phosphate and Potash derived only from phosphate sources. Many growers find the inclusion of Phosphorus with their Potassium source to be ideal. Phosphorus is essential for fall root development and an important energy source as trees come out of dormancy next season. Potassium is very active in plant-water relations and aids in drought and freeze resistance.
TECH-GROTM B-17 Boric Acid SprayTM has been shown to supply the most effective, safest form of Boron for plants. Including Boron in post-harvest programs has many benefits, particularly in spring health of floral parts including pollen tubules.
Zinc is another important nutrient to apply post-harvest, especially in deciduous trees. Depending on your specific needs, we have 3 zinc containing products that are often recommended: TECH-FLO® Zeta Zinc 22%, TECH-FLO® CVN Zinc 10%, or TECH-FLO® Beta. Ask your PCA or review our product guide to determine the best products to include in your post-harvest program. You can also download our free mobile app for instant nutrient help in the field.
Don’t forget- what you apply now will determine your bud break and fruit set next spring.
