Two tips to thrive through stressful spring conditions

Written on 05/27/2021

At this time of year, Mother Nature can put your young crop through a lot - cold temperatures, hot temperatures, hail, drought, excess moisture - anything is possible.

We can't change the forecast, but we can set up the crop so that it has the best chance to thrive through whatever is thrown at it.


Two tips for setting your crop up to thrive through stressful spring conditions:


Phosphorus deficiency

"By equipping your crop with the nutrients it needs, in the most available from, it has a higher chance of bouncing back from a stressful situation"

          • Having adequate nutrition supplied to the crop during times of stress can be the difference between surviving and thriving.

          • A crop that is already nutritionally stressed as a result of a nutrient deficiency may not have the resources to recover from an unplanned drought or hail event.


Biostimulants + Nutrition

"A biostimulant without nutrition is like having a turbo engine in your truck but you are out of gas"

          • Biostimulants work with nutrition to enhance nutrient uptake or efficiency, making it easier for the plant to start back up again after a stressful event.

          • Biostimulants drive rooting for moisture and nutrient acquisition. 

          • They also are known to reduce the impacts of an abiotic stress by allowing the plant to continue to respire and photosynthesize throughout an exposure to stress.

          • Because a biostimulant can keep the plant from "turning off" or shutting down during stress, it's critical that adequate nutrition is available to the plant at this time.


Using a pre-formulated foliar product that has a combination of nutrition and biostimulants is an easy and effective way deliver your crop what it needs to thrive through stress.  


If you are looking for a complete crop-specific NPK formulation to meet the early season nutrition demands of your crop, ReLeaf would be a great option for you. It is powered by two biostimulants: Transit-S and an Amino Acid Biological Activator

The NRG product line provides a combination of the essential elements (NPK) required for the plant with a targeted nutrient, per formulation, to overcome a crop's specific deficiency. NRG products are equipped with an amino acid biological activator that increases nutrient uptake and maximizes nutrient use efficiency by the plant. 



Kinetic is a premium line of foliar micronutrients designed to address and overcome specific micronutrient deficiencies in the plant. These products are powered by two biostimulants: Transit-S and an Amino Acid Biological Activator
