biocare Phos-K

of the natural defense mechanism of plants

  1. General Details

    biocare Phos-K is a product to base of natural substances (polymers of Poly-D-Glucosamine) and Potassium phosphite able to increase the activity of endogenous defense mechanisms of plants.

    biocare Phos-K acts through a complex mechanism known as SAR (Systemic Acquired Resistance) in which the polymers of Poly-D-Glucosamine act as elicitors able to interact with specific receptors of plant cells and induce the production of compounds with a protective action (Phytoalexins).

    The combined and balanced action of Poly-D-Glucosamine and Potassium Phosphite, make biocare Phos-K a very interesting product in treatment against the most common fungal diseases such as Alternaria sp, Anthracnose, Botrytis cinerea, Mildius, Fusarium sp, Oidium , Phytophthora spp, Pythium spp, Sclerotinia sp, etc.

    biocare Phos-K simultaneously performs a dual function: it feeds and strengthens naturally the plants stimulating the system of natural resistance.

  2. Composition

    Phosphoric Anhydride (P2O5) sol. in water: 15,0 %
    Potassium oxide (K2O) sol. in water: 10,0 %

    Formulation: Liquid

  3. Effects

    The use of biocare Phos-K in the vegetative phases advised allows:

    • to improve the resistance of plants to unfavourable conditions both biotic (pathogens) and abiotic (environmental stress);
    • to balance the growth of plants and to increase the quantity and quality of the production
    • to better the storage of the fruits after the harvest and to increase the resistance to manipulation and transport.

  5. Warnings

    Before to add biocare Phos-K in water verify that the pH is below 6.
    (if necessary, to add a pH corrector).

    The recommended doses are indicative and should be increased or decreased according to the characteristics of the area and the needs of each crop.
