Springboard™ promotes rapid germination and root development for greater access to water and nutrients. It is also good for enabling quick colonization of the mycorrhizal fungi in the root zone for enhanced access to water and nutrients such as phosphorus and zinc. Springboard™ contains both fast and slow release forms of nutrients to sustain crops throughout the growing season. Its low-salt formula makes it more friendly and more efficient and more cost effective than alternative, salt-based granular starters.
Springboard™ contains a full spectrum of nutrients including nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, sodium, silicon, boron, iron, manganese, copper, zinc and molybdenum. The plant available, buffered nutrients are housed in a carbon-rich, easy-to-handle liquid that provides germination enhancers as well as biological promotants.
Springboard™ should be applied at planting at a minimum dilution rate of 1:3 with water. Springboard™ will pass through 125 micron filter under ideal conditions hower a coarse inline filter (500 microns/35 mesh) is recommended to ensure the delivery lines are free from particle contaminants from other sources. Springboard™ is a suspension concentrate and constant agitation is essential to ensure a consistent product. It is advisable to pre-mix in a large tank, adding Springboard™ slowly while maintaining good agitation.
Application rates are based on row spacing as follows:
|Row Spacing||Rate (L/ac)||Minimum Water Rate (L/ac)|
Use a minimum dilution rate of 1 part Springboard™ to 3 parts water. Rate will depend on sowing rate,
expected yield, and soil type. Always consider N & P crop requirements for starters based on recent
soil test results.
The products we offer are designed to be used together as part of a full-year nutritional program. For more information on use, application rates and timing for specific crops contact Agriculture Solutions today.
