VITA-GROW® PLUS is a foliar fertilizer containing complete and balanced plant nutrients. It is enriched with plant growth regulators, non-ionic adjuvant and organically-bound micronutrients, which are stable upon storage or when mixing with most pesticide. Foliar application of VITA-GROW® PLUS provides rapid utilization of nutrients and permits the correction of observed deficiencies in less time compared to other soil fertilizer applications, especially during the critical growth stages. It is also an excellent supplement to soil fertilizer application.
Many years of research at UPM have shown that VITA-GROW® PLUS increased plant yield and enhanced crop quality. The findings on positive yield response on rice have been observed by many government agencies and individual farmers throughout Malaysia. In 2002, Malaysian Agriculture Research and Development Institute (MARDI) recommended the use of VITA-GROW® PLUS in rice production and also acknowledged the quality of VITA-GROW® PLUS exceeded the “Australian NST Standards” (MARDI Project No: NP 0090/10).
In plant producing excessive leaves due to nutrients imbalances, application of VITA-GROW® PLUS is able to stimulate flowering, leading to better fruit setting. Application of VITA-GROW® PLUS has also shown to prevent shedding of flowers and buds. Scientific reports have shown that when plant enters its reproductive stage, the absorption capacity of nutrients by the root is limited. At this stage, spraying the plant with VITA-GROW® PLUS has shown to increase yield significantly, possibly due to better nutrients balance,resulting in the movement of nutrients from the source (leaves and roots) to the sink (reproductive parts). VITA-GROW® PLUS has been in the marketplace since March 2000, and has been the recipient of the Invention and Competition Award by the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment of Malaysia (July 2001). Other benefits of using VITA-GROW® PLUS were:
- Increase in plant yield and enhance crop quality;
- Stimulate flowering, leading to better fruit setting; and
- Prevent shedding of flowers and buds.
ROBUST® is high calcium-foliar fertilizer specially formulated to produce good quality paddy seeds and enhance fruit production. Application of ROBUST® would stimulate better cell wall and bio-membrane formation and also initiate the process of lignification, which reduce fungal diseases infestation. Lignin adds significant mechanical strength to cell walls that reduces the susceptibility of the walls to attack by pathogen. Calcium is essential for the stability of bio-membranes. Calcium polygalactronates are required in the middle lamella for the cell wall stability. Hence, fruit crops applied with ROBUST® not only improves their storage quality, but also increase fruit sweetness due to enhanced photosynthetic rate by absorption of micronutrients present in ROBUST®.
