As Fruit & Vegetable grower, you know quality is just as important as weight when your produce hits the grocer’s shelves. Outside of weather, nothing influences quality and yields more than your fertilizer program. Fruits and vegetables need a proper balance of nutrients to grow, and have the quality for eye appeal to the buyer. Basic NPK is not enough. A fruit or vegetable plant needs 14 different plant nutrients to grow to the right size and quality. Practically all soils in the coastal plain are in a secondary and micronutrient deficient area, so unless a good available secondary & micronutrient source is supplied in your fertilizer, your crop may suffer. The best source for these nutrients is with a fertilizer that can give you uniform coverage in the fields like Rainbow.
When high yields and quality are critical, growers can rely on Rainbow fertilizers to provide the essential nutrients necessary to produce a healthy and bountiful crop. Inside its tiny granular shell, the product contains potassium, magnesium, zinc, boron, manganese, calcium and sulfur. The right combination for the highest quality crops.
A Balanced Diet:
All vegetable crops are different, but especially in the early stages, high-yielding vegetables require large amounts of potassium to stimulate root growth. Too much of this nutrient, however, can restrict plant absorption of magnesium, which is essential for chlorophyll production. That’s why every granule of Rainbow supplies the perfect balance of potassium and magnesium. Rainbow also incorporates zinc, manganese, calcium, and boron, which promotes cell elasticity and plump fruits. In addition, Rainbow boasts sulfur – the perfect mineral to spur a crop’s ability to process nitrogen, promoting health across the board.
Readily Available Nutrients:
Nutrients in Rainbow fertilizers exist in a highly available water-soluble sulfate form, so they can move quickly through the soil profile to reach vegetable roots in time to promote healthy, hearty crops.
Easy on Sensitive Crops:
While most potassium sources contain chloride that may reduce the quality of sensitive crops and shorten shelf life, Rainbow fertilizers do not. Because of this low chloride level, vegetable growers can use Rainbow fertilizers with confidence.
Doesn't Affect Soil pH. If your pH isn't balanced, then nothing works. Don’t worry! Rainbow is a neutral salt and does not increase soil acidity, regardless of the amount applied to your vegetable crops.
