VITALMINA tm

VITALMINATM is characterized as soil conditioner & foliarly applied preparation useful and necessary for all plants. It is a sophisticated technology product, rich in growth-enhancing substances. It contains: Vitamins (B1 thiamine, B3 niacin, C ascorbic acid), Polysaccharides, Enzymes and L-Amino Acids of plant origin, whose combination with macronutrient (NPK) and EDTA* trace elements (Β, Co, Cu*,Fe*,Mn*,Mo, Zn*), makes it uniquely effective. VITALMINAâ on the soil acts as natural bioactivator. In particular, it improves structure and biological activity, reduces the pH and high sodium content, improves porosity and nutrient retention capacity, thus creating a fertile and healthy soil environment for all crops. Foliarly applied, VITALMINAâ, acting as a natural biostimulator, is easily and quickly absorbed by all above-ground parts of the plants. One might say that it intelligently moves within the plant, since it promptly stimulates its cell activity. In such activity, the reaction of the plant is identical with the way of treating high stress conditions. In particular, it ceases seed dormancy and increases germination capacity. In plants, it activates the autoprotection process, promoting them to autogeneration of valuable plant hormones, including Auxins (IAA), Gibberellins (GA3), & Cytokinins (ZEATIN). The above-mentioned top substances are characterized as growth-enhancing substances and, through their heavy circulation within the plant parenchyma, promote and enhance the processes for: increased germination capacity, rich rooting, vigorous growth, successful fruit setting, improved post-harvest resistance and flower induction, thus ensuring high and quality performance in all crops.

Dose: 30-40ml/100L of water. The volume of the spraying solution per thousand square metres depends on the age, size and coverage area of the vine plants – trees.

OLIVE TREE:

First application by full-coverage spraying of the trees shortly before flowering during the formation of the clusters (to increase fruit setting and reduce blossom drop). Second application at the end of flowering (to increase fruit setting and reduce fruit drop). Third application on the young fruit (for filling of the fruit). Fourth application in the phase of colour change of the olives (for uniform maturation).

Second application in full blossom (for an increase in fruit setting and protection against last frost). Third application in the beginning of germination or after fall of the petals of the young fruit (for uniform growth of the fruits). This particular application 10-14 days after fall of the petals contributes in the treatment of the symptoms of the cherry yellowing viruses. However, the results of the intervention become evident in the following year after application. Fourth application after 15 days (to increase the fruits in weight and size). Fifth application prior to normal maturation or when there is a change in the colour of the fruits (to prevent tearing, improve precocity of colouring and shape, increase sugar- brix degree and hardness of the fruit, as well as their post-harvest resistance).

POME FRUIT (Apple Trees-Pear Trees-Quince Trees):

First application by spraying in the phase of the White or Pink tip, i.e., shortly before the beginning of inflorescence (to avoid damage caused by late frost). Second application in full blossom (to increase fruit setting in hardly pollinated varieties and protection against late frost). ATTENTION: The second application is only done if there is damage in the flowers due to frost and, within the following 10 days, otherwise if it is done on trees showing no damage, it will lead to excessive binding, thus limiting the formation of flower buds for the following year. Third application after fall of the petals in the young fruit (for uniform growth of the fruits). Fourth application after 15 days (which helps in the transportation and deposition of elemental calcium, thus improving filling of the fruits). Fifth application where there is a change in the colour of the fruits (with the aim of improving colour, differentiating flower buds in the following year, and extending the storage time of apples).

Dose: 30-40ml/100L of water. The volume of the spraying solution per thousand square metres depends on the age, size and coverage area of the pome trees.

CITRUS TREES (Orange Trees-Tangerine Trees-Lemon Trees-Grapefruit Trees etc):

First application by spraying in the beginning of inflorescence (for improved fruit setting). In particular, for clementine variety, it is recommended that the application be done in full blossom, thus achieving increased fruit setting and production with reduced number of seeds in the tangerine fruits. Second application 20 days after fruit setting (for uniform filling and growth of the fruits). Third application as soon as the change in the colour of the fruits begins (to avoid tearing and swelling of the tangerine peel, delay maturation of the lemons, increase the resistance of oranges in rot after harvest and achieve a longer life in storehouses). In particular, for Valencia variety, spraying of the trees from mid November to the end of December and repetition of the application 3 weeks later achieves flower removal and reduction in the alternative fruit setting of the trees.

Dose: 40-50ml/100L of water. The volume of the spraying solution per thousand square metres depends on the age, size and coverage area of citrus trees.
