Controlling pests and diseases, while meeting export or local market requirements, can be a complex business. Fruitfed Supplies can provide the advice and spray products you need for plant nutrition, pests and diseases, fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, growth regulators, surfactants, adjuvants and the necessary spray equipment for horticultural and viticultural crops.
Fertilisers and plant growth stimulants can be applied as liquid foliar sprays. Talk to your local Fruitfed Supplies representative about YaraVita Foliars; formulated from consistently high quality nutrient compounds with co-formulates, such as wetters, stickers and absorption aids, to control and enhance performance.
Does your fruit or vegetable crop have a fungal or bacterial disease? Do you need a contact or systemic spray? A contact fungicide kills fungi when sprayed on its surface; a systemic fungicide has to be absorbed by the plant.
The team at Fruitfed Supplies can help you identify the correct fungicide to use for safe and effective control. Our Fruitfed Supplies field and customer services representatives receive on-going training regarding responsible product use and market guidelines. You should also check product use with your exporter, where applicable.
Selective vs. non-selective, pre-emergent vs. post-emergent, and systemic vs. contact – the variety of herbicides on the market is extensive. Then, if you take into account the ways in which specific herbicides can be combined to control unwanted grasses, volunteer onions, broadleaf weeds, mallows, thistles, buttercups, etc., you probably need to talk to the team at Fruitfed Supplies.
Our field and customer services representatives receive ongoing training regarding safe and effective use and storage of herbicides. We recommend you also check product use with your exporter, where applicable.
Plant growth regulators (also known as growth regulators or plant hormones) are chemicals used to alter the growth of a plant or plant part. Hormones are substances naturally produced by plants, substances that control normal plant functions, such as root growth, fruit set and drop, growth and other development processes. They don't include substances intended as plant nutrients, trace elements, nutritional chemicals, plant inoculants, or soil amendments.
This is an ever-evolving sector, so keep in touch with your local field representative for growth regulators which may have a purpose in your crop.
An extensive range of adjuvants are available. Your Fruitfed Supplies representative can help you select the best product for your purpose.
