Benefits of Agricultural Chemical: Bud Mate

  • Pre-bud nutrition that improves fruit set
  • Safe to use formulation that can be used during flowering
  • Calcium is required for synthesis of cells in the growing pollen tube and determines direction of growth of the pollen tube; it also plays a fundamental role in plant adaptation to environmental stress
  • Added magnesium to improve chlorophyll production, especially in new leaf
  • Provides essential zinc that improves pollination as well as levels of growth hormones
  • Boron assists pollen tube development as well as the whole pollination process and enhances calcium absorption
  • Premixed in carefully controlled ratios so the crop receives the essential nutrients specific to its growth stage
  • Can be applied with a wide range of other agricultural chemicals, reducing the number of spray applications needed

The Role of Calcium:

Calcium is critical for the strength and integrity of cell walls. It plays an important role in cell division and growth development, including pollen tube growth. In fruit crops it is required in high quantities, in some cases in amounts equal to that of nitrogen.

Calcium is also shown to participate in the complex responses of plant cells to environmental stress. Trials show that the foliar application of calcium can enhance plant drought resistance and heat stress by protecting the structure of the cellular plasma membranes whilst still maintaining photosynthesis.

The Role of Zinc:

Pollen tubes and shoot tips have a high requirement for zinc at the sites of protein synthesis. Zinc is involved in DNA replication in protein molecules as well as in gene expression within plants. It is not mobile and thus may require re-application in crops with a high zinc requirement. Deficiency shows up in new growth.

The Role of Magnesium:

Magnesium forms part of the cell walls and is also an essential part of the chlorophyll molecule. This is essential for photosynthesis and therefore most other plant functions. Magnesium is very mobile in the plant and deficiencies are seen in the old leaves with inconsistent chlorosis.

The Role of Boron:

Boron is needed for sugar movement within the plant, as well as formation of new cells at growing points. Boron also affects pollination and seed development
