Primers

Priming your seed helps to balance the key elements within and promote the development of strong seedlings.

Starters

Starters provide germinating seed with immediate access to phosphorus nutrition, promoting rapid root growth and accelerated seedling emergence.

Foliars

Foliar nutrition provides the plant with the crucial energy it needs to hasten root growth and help it recover from early-season stress.

Programs

Work with an Omex Plant Health Professional to develop a nutrient management program tailored to your specific needs.

In-Season Solutions

In-Season Micro Nutrients

Micronutrients are required in minute quantities but are essential for healthy plant growth and yield maximization. Macronutrients, secondary nutrients and micronutrients must all be in balance. While needed in smaller amounts, micronutrients can play a huge role in crop physiology. There are several benefits of adding micronutrients to your fertility program.

If shortage of Phos is the problem Omex foliars are the solution

How to manage Phos levels in season?

Many limiting factors do not allow farmers to apply adequate levels of phosphorus at or prior to seeding. Cool and wet conditions also limit the uptake of soil-applied phosphorus by the crop. Phosphorus is hardly mobile in the soil and prone to tie-up with cations such as Ca2+, Fe2+ and Al3+, depending on the pH. In addition, plant usually take-up 75% of their phosphorus requirement during the first 30-40 days of their life.

Omex foliar products are formulated with high levels of phosphorus and tank mixable with herbicides, fungicides and insecticides to provide a continuous foliar feeding throughout the season. No need of an extra pass, just mix and go!

Recommendations:

Cereals:
  • Primer (PK + Zn, Mn, Cu + Primer Technology™) @ 3 ml/kg of seed (faster start in cold soils)
  • Nutri-Boost (6-17-5 + Stress Reliever Technology™ + Micropak™) @ 2 L/ac with herbicide
  • uPtaKe IC (5-25-5 + uPtaKe IC Technology™ + Micropak™) @2 L/ac, Lucky 13 (13-13-13 + Micropak™) @ 2 L/ac with fungicide

Canola:
  • Primer Canola (PK + Primer Technology™ + Zn + Micropak™) @ 6 ml/kg of seed (faster start in cold soils)
  • Nutri-Boost (6-17-5 + Stress Reliever Technology™ + Micropak™) @ 2 L/ac with herbicide
  • uPtaKe IC (5-25-5 + uPtaKe IC Technology™ + Micropak™) @2 L/ac, Lucky 13 (13-13-13 + Micropak™) @ 2 L/ac with fungicide

Pulses:
  • Pulse Pak (5%Ca + PK + Primer Technology™ + Micropak™) @ 3 ml/kg of seed (faster start in cold soils)
  • P3 (5% Ca + Stress Reliever Technology™ + Micropak™) @ 0.25 L/ac with herbicide
  • uPtaKe IC (5-25-5 + uPtaKe IC Technology™ + Micropak™) @2 L/ac with fungicide

Each application of the above products from Omex provides sufficient phosphorus for a functional period of 10-12 days.
