Headlands Advanced Formulations
Balanced nutrition is essential for plant development. Nutrient products must be of the highest quality to counter act natural or induced deficiencies, and meet the growing requirements of high yielding crops.
Formulation technology has developed considerably from applying foliar nutrients in basic inorganic form. To be really effective plant nutrients applied to the foliage of any plant, need to move through the waxy plant cuticle into the leaf and into the internal transport system.
It is clear that ingredients in co-formulation with plant nutrients can have a dramatic impact on facilitating leaf entry and on nutrient availability in the plant.
Scientific research data shows that in addition to aiding uptake some co-formulants can act to help compatibility in the spray tank (and some have a dual role, helping both compatibility and uptake), some modify the acidity of the spray water and some act to tie up or block out unwanted ions which could interfere with product efficacy.
Other co-formulants act within the plant by increasing or maintaining levels of chlorophyll, improving the uptake of other nutrients or acting in a similar way to plant hormones. Finally, the type of salt used in the product can have an impact on uptake and availability. For example, manganese based on the nitrate salt has been shown in trials to be taken into the plant more readily than other salts.
Other experiments have shown that magnesium nitrate is more readily available than magnesium sulphate.
All Headland products utilise the best ingredients available to ensure any investment in plant nutrition is maximised.
Applying a plant nutrient in basic form to the crop is very different from applying a fully formulated Headland product containing a plant nutrient. The first option is cost ineffective in terms of the end result, where as the latter is cost effective as the applied nutrient is used far more efficiently by the crop.
All Headland products are fully formulated using the most advanced chemistry. They contain the best available surfactants and adjuvants to assist absorption by the plant.
