Carrots require a suitable balance of several nutrients including boron, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and zinc. Deficiencies in any one of these can cause a range of disorders or limit your yields. Our programme of smart liquid fertilisers can help your carrots get the nutrients they need at each stage of the growth cycle.
Ensuring proper nutrition for carrots
Carrots that are lacking boron can grow split roots with dark central cores and can cause chlorisis, which can also be caused by a shortage of magnesium, copper, iron, manganese or sulphur. An inadequate supply of boron can also cause chlorisis as well as growth retardation with reduced germination and seedling growth. A lack of calcium leads to problems including necrosis, the collapse and shrivelling of upper leaves and it can severely reduce root sizes. Root and plant sizes can also be stunted due to a lack of nitrogen or phosphorus, while a potassium deficiency can lead to discolouration and interveinal chlorosis.
With foliar applications of NHCaDelta, NHK Delta, 1-4-All and CalFlux at the stages of the growing cycle set out below, Bionature’s smart liquid fertilisers can give your carrot crops the nutrients they need to grow healthily, with improved yields.
