AF Pulsar

Micro-nutrient balancer following major nitrogen applications

AF Pulsar is a highly efficient liquid foliar product designed to aid the leaf in maintaining its ability to photosynthesise, even after large applications of Nitrogen or other macro-nutrients. Containing subtle amounts of Cobalt and Molybdenum, AF Pulsar is crucial in the utilisation of Nitrogen and Nitrogen fixation. Produced using a unique process of production, via the Flex Fertiliser System ApS, AF Pulsar contains a true amide complex that increases the uptake and efficiency of trace elements to the crop.

Why use a multi-nutrient like AF Pulsar?

  • Straight foliar Nitrogen, without any balanced nutrition can, and often does, overload the plant creating a large imbalance with other elements. This causes chaos within the plant cell which can often have a negative effect on yield, health and quality.
  • Studies show that plants respond better to nutrients if they are kept in balance within the leaf. When large amounts of any single nutrient is applied, they can ‘lock up’, or make less available, other necessary minerals. To avoid this, applying nutrients in multi-nutrient blends, such as AF Pulsar, makes sure that the vital nutritional balance is maintained.
  • The Nitrogen is chelated so that it is not easily lost; it is supplied as amide Nitrogen, in a complex form, which reduces the turnover of ammonia and reduces the risk of scorch.
  • AF Pulsar contains a specific combination of nutrients which are complexed with Nitrogen enabling the plant to fully utilise the complexed dose of Nitrogen, and nutrients, whilst considering the total requirements of the plant at the time of application.
  • Foliar nutrition is incredibly useful in facilitating balance and increasing Nitrogen efficiency, yield and quality with increased tiller numbers and survival, ear size and disease resistance.
  • Extremely efficient liquid foliar product.

Understanding complex fertilisers

In traditional liquid feeds based on salts or suspensions, Nitrogen is added to the leaf as urea, which is converted to ammonia, increasing the risk of leaf scorch. In a traditional liquid form, metal ions and Phosphorus are also able to readily form new, stable compounds making these nutrients unavailable to the plant.

When utilising complex chemistry, Nitrogen is bonded in an amide form allowing a complete range or macro and micro nutrients to be supplied to the plant where they are steadily and efficiently released and can be rapidly assimilated.

The supply of complexed amide Nitrogen also reduces the need for the plant to expend energy on organic Nitrogen synthesis and limits the nutrient imbalance that can occur with traditional forms of foliar Nitrogen, which can flood into the plant, swamping and diluting other essential nutrients.

There are various routes by which foliar applied nutrients can enter the plant, via the leaf cuticle and stomata but they all rely on the plant surface remaining wet. Aiva Fertilisers complex fertilisers have a very low Point of Deliquescence (PoD) meaning that they stay in a liquid form much longer than a solution of urea or chemical salts. As a result, a full range of nutrients can be quickly utilised by the plant rather than drying and accumulating on the leaf surface.

Remember: foliar nutrition is a tool that has become essential, especially when supplementary Nitrogen is applied. Without the correct balance of elements, essential processes, and the movement of elements around the plant to facilitate normal functions, balanced growth cannot happen efficiently.

Application method

AF Pulsar can be applied in many situations to a variety of crops. Tailored use to alleviate nutritional deficiency or for supplementation of crop requirements is best. Use when issues are highlighted from tissue analysis, visual assessment or expected from historical issues and soil tests. Can be used as a routine maintenance dose. 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.

All agricultural crops: 3-12 L/ha in 100-200 L/ha water.

Pulses: 5-12 L/ha in 100-200 L/ha water. From early to mid flowering, or as necessary.

Developed using the Flex Fertilizer System

Aiva Fertiliser uses Flex Fertilizer System technology where the liquid fertiliser contains nutrients in a form that can be taken up by the leaves and utilised by plants highly efficiently. The nutrient content is put into complex compounds using complex chemistry. This formulation results in nutrients being kept available to the plants for a longer period of time and are not lost to leaching or evaporation to the same extent as traditional fertilisers.
