AF Zinc is a highly efficient liquid foliar product designed to combat chlorosis and aid the plant in producing chlorophyll. Produced using a unique process of production, via the Flex Fertilizer System ApS, AF Zinc contains a true amide complex that increases the uptake and efficiency of trace elements to the crop.

It is hard to tell the difference between Zinc deficiency and other trace element or micro-nutrient deficiencies by just looking at the plant because they all have similar symptoms. The main difference is that chlorosis due to Zinc deficiency begins on the lower leaves, while chlorosis due to a shortage of Iron, Manganese or Molybdenum begins on the upper leaves. The only way to confirm your suspicion of Zinc deficiency is have your soil/plant tissues tested and analysed.
AF Zinc can be applied in many situations to a variety of crops as well as alongside pesticide applications. 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.
Shake the container well before opening and use. Spray equipment should always be clean before adding product.
Half fill the spray tank with water, begin agitation and add the required quantity of AF Zinc to the tank. Rinse 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.
All agricultural crops: 1-3 L/ha in 100-200 L/ha water. Apply as necessary, higher rates may be needed in very severe deficiency.
Regular soil or plant tissue testing is the best practice to determine if Zinc application is required to ensure that Zinc does not accumulate in the soil to undesirably high levels.
Mix into the tank last when used alongside pesticides. AF Zinc is compatible with a wide range of agrochemical products. Consult Aiva Fertiliser for further details. If unsure, it is advised to do a jar test before adding into the sprayer.
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.
