Plus 60 other micro nutrients
What it does
Improve soil structure, break up clay soil, improve water penetration and availability, increase nutrient availability. Your crops will look fresher as the plants access the available silica, mineral and trace elements of ELM Plus. Also, as the balance of your soil improves, the soil will now release moisture and nutrients more easily. This means the plants now have more energy to grow healthier and set better flowers. The combination of plant available silica, minerals, trace elements and microbe activity may increase the structure of plants allowing them to search a larger area of soil for moisture and nutrients. Your crops will be more productive for longer, no matter if the weather is wet or dry, hot or cold.
ELM Plus promotes healthier, more robust root system and stronger thicker stem growth (reducing lodging) on all plants. Provides organically complexed acids for enhanced cellular nutrition. Increases the utilisation of irrigation and rainfall more efficiently. Improves nutrient availability (including applied fertilisers) to the plant, even under harsh conditions.
Loosens all clay soils. Provides better moisture penetration, softer soil, improves nutrient availability and reduces the effects of water-logging.
Binds sand particles together in sandy soils, which reduces nutrient leaching and improves moisture availability.

Apply as soon as possible after harvest.
Note: Full benefits are seldom achieved within 4-6 weeks of planting.
How often to use it
