Micronutrient fertilizer ORAKUL® sulfur active

ORAKUL® sulfur active – is a high-efficient sulfur micronutrient fertilizer for foliar feeding of field, vegetable and perennial crops.

ORAKUL® sulfur active – is a microfertilizer of high purity, it does not contain any ballast additives, so it does not cause leaf burn. It eliminates effectively sulfur deficiency in plants.

Sulfur regulates the growth of the vegetative mass, increases survivorship rate of plants, increases crop yields. Sulfur is involved in the formation of proteins and vitamins, it is a very important component of mustard oil.
 
 
Being a compound of many plant protection formulations (so-called phytoalexins) sulfur has a positive effect on the resistance of plants to diseases such as Alternaria blight and Botrytis. As a part of amino acids that comprise the protein, it forms bonds that maintain the tertiary structure of the protein. Due to the fact that sulfur undergoes in the plant tissues both oxidation and reduction processes, it plays a significant role in plant respiration. Sulfur is involved in the formation of polyamines, which influence the structure of nucleic acids and ribosomes, regulate the processes of cell division. It enhances the fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere, as it affects positively nodulation in legumes.

Crops, which are in the greatest need in sulfur are cruciferous, legumes, sugar beet and potatoes.

The need in sulfur depends on the level of nitrogenous nutrition: the higher is the level of nitrogen, the more sulfur plants absorb. In the spring, as a rule, sulfur content in the root zone of soil is low. This phenomenon is caused by high soil leaching regime because sulfates are highly mobile.

Lack of sulfur causes the destruction of chlorophyll; the leaves become pale and yellow. Upper leaves are first to experience the deficiency of sulfur. These symptoms are very similar to nitrogen deficiency.
 

Foliar application of ORAKUL® sulfur active contributes to improvement of nutrition. Sulfur, which is a compound of fertilizer, increases the percentage of protein and starch in wheat, oil content in sunflower, soybean and rapeseed. Sulfur in ORAKUL® sulfur active is in partially reduced form (polysulfides). This allows the plants to include it into the biosynthesis of amino acids and proteins with less energy expenses.

One more element, which is a part of ORAKUL® sulfur active – is sodium. Sodium ions play an important role in plants, they are an essential component of the cell sap.

This element provokes growing by stretching and performs a function of osmotic regulation, like potassium.
Sodium is essential for the substance transport through membranes (sugars and amino acids), it is included in the so-called sodium-potassium pump (Na+/K+). Therefore, containing sodium, ORAKUL® sulfur active has got a positive effect on the growth of most plants, especially sugar beet. It increases the sugar content, resistance to drought and increases leaf area.

Nitrogen in ORAKUL® sulfur active is in reactive form (amide), which enhances root development.

Microfertilizer is in the liquid state and is ready for immediate use. While observing the storage conditions it does not crystallize and can be applied in a wide range of temperatures, starting from +5 ° C.
 

ORAKUL® sulfur active can be used in any water. In hard water, the active substance does not interact with hardness salts (calcium and magnesium), so there is no danger of the calcium sulphate (gypsum) formation, which can lead to breakdown of spraying machinery.

ORAKUL® sulfur active has a significant physiological effect on plants, namely:
  • enhances root development;
  • improves plant development;
  • provokes growing by stretching and performs a function of osmotic regulation;
  • increases drought resistance by 26%, increases leaf area by 22%;
  • increases disease resistance of plants by 28%;
  • contributes to increase of protein and starch content in wheat, oil content in sunflower, soybeans and rapeseed.
It is recommended for use in conjunction with VIMPEL® plant growth stimulator .

1. INFORMATION FOR CONSUMERS: when applying the micronutrient fertilizer ORAKUL® sulfur active with the formulations, which acidify the aqueous solution (pH≤7), toxic hydrogen sulfide forms, which is firstly dangerous for field staff, and secondly leads to a slight decrease in the concentration of sulfur in the solution.

When mixing microfertilizers with metal-containing formulations (depending on the amount and type of the metal), the formation of a small amount of poorly water-soluble metal sulfides is possible. It should also be noted that finely dispersed sulfur may form sediment before the solution reaches the leaf surface. In this case, keep in mind that the mixing tool should be switched on during spraying.

The best option is to use the formulation ORAKUL® sulfur active and alkaline formulations as well as formulations that do not contain metal atoms simultaneously. In this case, when sprayed on a leaf surface, the aqueous solution containing sulfur microfertilizer begins to form active sulfur intensively and distributes evenly on a leaf surface.

The efficacy of the formulation and its ease of use depend on the application, storage and transportation conditions specified by the manufacturer.

2. COMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER FORMULATIONS: the micronutrient fertilizer is applied during the growing season either prophylactically or according to the diagnostics results based on the application regulations. It performs well in tank mixes with plant growth stimulator VIMPEL 2®. Recommended water temperature for a preparation of the working tank solution is 18 – 20 ºС (64.4 – 68 ºF). The micronutrient fertilizer is compatible as well with the pesticides that do not create an acidic environment in the spraying solution.

3. PREPARATION OF WORKING TANK SOLUTION:

Warning! Prior to starting preparation of a tank mix, always check the formulations for compatibility!

For this purpose take a container, pour in it some water (which is to be used for the main application), add the tank mix components in proportions, based on the field rates of consumption. After closing the container, mix the contents by shaking it 10-15 times. Evaluate the tank mixture visually twice: immediately after mixing and after the mixture has settled (in about 30 minutes). Incompatibility of formulations is indicated by their separation into layers, residuum occurrence, flocculation of the mixture, formation of sludge that does not disperse.

Attention! It is possible to use the formulation in hard water due to the water softener in its composition. At the same time, if there is high concentration of hardness salts and significant amount of water, it is possible that after some time there will be a slight separation of hardness salts in the form of gypsum (СаSO4٠2H2O). In this case, the amount of sulfur in the solution is slightly reduced. These processes in no way affect the solution usability or cause the possibility of spraying equipment failure, as the formulation is finely dispersed. When forming a tank mixture in hard water, we recommend spraying with the mixing mode turned on. After application of the tank mix, it is necessary to rinse the tank with water to prevent the overgrowth of gypsum crystals.

If there are no compatibility problems, prepare the working solution just before spraying (direct application). Shake the product thoroughly in the original package and pour it directly into the sprayer tank, which is to be previously filled with water to 2/3 of its volume. After this with the mixing mode turned on add the components of the tank mixture in sequence stated in the recommendations and finish the process with filling the tank with water. Stirring of the mixture should be continued throughout the period of its preparation, as well as during application.

Application rates of the spraying solution: field crops — 70-300 L/ha, vegetables — 300-400 L/ha, fruit crops and grapes — 800-1000 L/ha.

5. APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: spraying should be done either early in the morning or in the evening, when the humidity level is high to avoid chemical leaf burn. The optimum air temperature is +10...+25 °С (50 — 77 ºF), wind speed up to 5 — 7 m/s depending on the sprayer type. It is not recommended carrying out spraying operations during foggy weather or in the presence of dew, which can lead to surface overflow of the solution and hence the reduction of the treatment efficiency. The spraying should be stopped 1.5 — 2 hours before the rain.

Attention! Use а freshly mixed solution. Do not store the prepared solution more than 24 hours.


6. STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION: storage and transportation must be carried out in accordance with ГОСТ 14189 (National State Standard).
