AZOFER SLOW-RELEASE

Balanced vegetative development activator

CHARACTERISTICS

Azofer Slow-Release is based on slow-release nitrogen derived from methylene-urea, enhanced with potassium, DTPA chelated iron (Fe) and Algae. Azofer Slow-Release is ideal for feeding fruit trees after fruit setting and during all vegetative development periods for all cultivated crops.

EFFICACY

Azofer Slow-Release contains nitrogen as methylene-urea (urea-formaldehyde) and urea. Methylene-urea allows a progressive and constant release of nitrogen. The time of release is 45 days from the application date. The progressive release of nitrogen is synchronized with the growth and absorption of plant cells and stems because the degradation of the N-polymer is affected by the same environmental soil key-factors. i.e. temperature, humidity, oxygenation. Azofer Slow-Release contains K+S derived from potassium thiosulphate, which gives more firmness to vegetal tissues and more resistance to water stress and fungus attack. DTPA chelated iron (Fe) allows the efficient absorption of the element to prevent iron chlorosis. Algae (Aschophyllum nodosum), with their bio-stimulant activity, help in the development of fruit and flowers, provide resistance to water stress and prevent disease.
