Albion Plant Nutrition


Foliar Metalosates - Chelated minerals designed for arable crops, are highly bioavailable and formulated for application directly onto plant surface through foliar sprays. This new generation chelate offers improved nutrition, for all arable, forage, horticultural and fruit crops. A range of single and multi-element foliar micronutrients. Foliar spray application has many advantages over other forms of plant nutrition as the solution is rapidly and efficiently absorbed by plant leaves. Every application starts working almost immediately and cannot be leached by rain. Treatment can be applied to plants during any stage of growth to increase quality and sweetness of crops, and will, if used correctly, significantly increase yield and ultimately grow profit from soft fruit, top fruit, vegetables and other crops.

Using amino acids derived from vegetable protein ensures the mineral chelates are compatible with the natural processes of mineral absorption and translocation.

Metalosates work particularly well on soft fruit, top fruit, vegetables and other crops including strawberries, apples, raspberries, cherries, beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, cereal grains, cucumbers, pears, grapes, lettuce, maize, tomatoes, onions, peas, potatoes and radishes.

The effective dose is very low and there is a wide margin of safety when applying the amino acid chelates to sensitive crops. The liquid is totally safe to use and non toxic to people mixing and applying the solution.

Metalosates is distributed across the UK by T&J. Telephone 01603 781217 for more details.
