PH adjustment and plant growth supplements
When a gap occurs between what a plant needs and what it receives, plant growth supplements may become necessary. Alternatively, if you wish to prevent problems from occurring, plant growth additives could be very useful.
BAC offers a range of supplements that will stimulate or support your crop’s growth, from vegetative to flowering stages. Part of our range contains organic plant supplements, as you will see below.
When soil pH adjustments become necessary
Heavy watering, decomposing organic matter or the use of less-than-optimal fertilisers may lower the pH value of the soil you are growing your plants in. Dry conditions, on the other hand, may increase them.
When pH values become too low or too high plants can no longer absorb the nutrients sufficiently. This may lead to stunted growth, yellowing of leaves and weaker overall plant health. Also, soil toxicity may occur when the levels of certain elements increase beyond what is nutritional for the plants. Microorganisms required for premium plant health may suffer from altered pH values as well.
In these cases, plant growth supplements are absolutely vital to ensure a quick return to healthy pH values.
Plant growth supplements to prevent problems
Plant stress can lead to smaller, lower quality crop. Spider mites, for instance, can create serious injury to plants, going so far as to kill your crop. In this event, prevention is better than cure. Enter plant growth supplements: developed to strengthen your plant’s immune system, they will render your crop much more resistant to stress. The result: an increased ability to fend off pests, plagues and other compromising conditions.
