Florovit fertiliser against browning of needles
The most frequent cause resulting in the death of coniferous trees lies in the shortage of nutrients. Within a certain period of time following the planting, the needles start changing their colours to light green, then to yellow, and finally the needles turn brown and the tree drops its needles and dies.
These symptoms are not caused by pests. They result from the inadequate supply of nutrients – most frequently observed shortage is magnesium deficiency. Since the uptake of nutrients from the soil decreases in an excessively dry soil, the described deficiency symptoms can usually be observed during drought. These shortages can be prevented by providing magnesium to trees, both in the form of soil fertilisation, as well as foliar feeding.
Method of application:
Sprinkle the recommended dose of the fertiliser evenly under the crown of trees or shrubs. Then water the plants thoroughly. This fertiliser can be applied throughout the whole year, depending on requirements. It is particularly recommended to use the fertiliser when first symptoms of needle browning start to appear. The fertiliser can also be applied in the form of foliar spraying. In order to perform this procedure, it is recommended to use about 5% solution of the fertiliser (500 g of the fertiliser per 10 litres of water). In case of considerable deficiency, the whole procedure can be repeated 2 or 3 times at 14-day intervals.
|Size of the tree or shrub||Recommended dose|
|up to 1 m||25 g/m2|
|between 1 m and 2 m||50 g/m2|
|between 2 m and 5 m||100 g/m2|
|between 5 m and 10 m||150 g/m2|
|more than 10 m||200 g/m2|
This fertiliser is also recommended for all plants prone to magnesium deficiency.
Before the vegetation: single dose of 25 g/m2 of the cropped area should be mixed with at least 10-cm thick layer of the soil.
Top dressing: single dose of 10 g/m2 of the cropped area should be sprinkled or applied on leaves, by spraying the plants with 5% solution and using 50-100 ml of working solution per 1 m2 of the cropped area.
1 tablespoon contains about 15 g of the fertiliser.
