AF Armour

Building naturally stronger plants

AF ARMOUR is an extremely unique formulation containing a vital support nutrient, Salicylic acid. Combined in complexed amide Nitrogen form, essential Salicylic acid can be rapidly assimilated. Salicylic acid acts as a stimulant that helps the plant to withstand environmental stress conditions such as dryness, coldness, heat, and the stress of heavy elements as well as increasing cell division, photosynthesis, transpiration, and nutrient uptake and rooting.

The benefits of Armour

  • Plants become stronger, with thicker stems and leaves. This in turn can be enhanced in conjunction with Mono-silicic acid increasing the first line of defence against disease and insects.
  • Salicylic acid is a natural ethylene inhibitor, potentially delaying the ripening process.
  • Salicylic acid helps with both drought, salinity, and heat stress as well as increases cell division, photosynthesis, Transpiration, and nutrient uptake and rooting.
  • Salicylic acid is vital for the uptake of Silicon and Calcium.
  • Salicyclic acid supports and increases natural P&D defence

Application method

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

IMPORTANT: Apply when there is adequate leaf for foliar coverage and uptake into the plant. For best results of nutritional uptake, apply in the evening or early morning. Do not spray when the crop is in stressed conditions such as very hot weather or drought. Shake the container well before opening and use. Spray equipment should always be clean before adding product.

COMPATIBILITY: Compatible with most products. When mixing with multiple products or new products for the first time, a simple jar test is recommended. For details of compatibilities contact your distributor or local AIVA FERTILISER representative.

MIXING: Half fill the spray tank with water, begin agitation and add the required quantity of foliar nutrition to the tank, then add AF ARMOUR. Rinse the container thoroughly and then add the rinsings to the sprayer. Once mixed, continue agitation until spraying is complete and spray without delay. It is not advised to leave products in the tank for long periods of time.

TIMING: Apply either during the stem extension phase or at bud/fruit formation or grain fill.
