The Wonderful Support of Potassium

2020-10-19T10:30:50+01:00

Potassium plays a key role in a crops defence mechanism to help it withstand pest or pathogen attack. Deficiency or transient deficiency in a season will make the crop more susceptible to pest attack and infections e.g. BYDV and foliar diseases Ensure crop sufficiency with a foliar application of Wholly K at 1.0 [...]

Root Exudates

2020-09-30T09:23:43+01:00

The Rhizosphere is a complex system of interactions between the plants roots, soil biology and the chemical/physical properties of the soil. Exudates produced by roots are made up of many components that can respond to the plants needs, with organic acids, carbohydrates and amino acids being the dominant ones. To maximise the biological [...]

Understanding the Root Zone to get the best crop establishment and growth

2020-09-04T16:40:52+01:00

The plants overall productivity depends upon a root system being able to support optimal growth during the maximum period of stress. RISK = probability of the event happening X the consequence of it happening. The main factors during the establishment phase which influence dry matter distribution between roots and shoots are light, nutrients [...]

Enhance Your Barley Establishment

2020-07-13T20:00:18+01:00

Winter Barley Winter barley is very source dependent and so it is vital to build biomass, tillers and ears. Phosphorus is critical for a successful establishment. Unium Biostimulants will give the best support through germination to tillering. TIROS takes our seed treatments to a new level allowing the plant [...]

Seed Choice

2020-07-10T11:32:59+01:00

Seed choice is one of the most important decisions we have to take, not only the variety but the quality of the seed. Unium are continually seeking to improve the performance of the seeds we plant. By understanding what makes quality seed – the seed nutritional content along with the physiology of the [...]

Endophytes – the next frontier

2020-07-10T11:41:06+01:00

A new seed treatment that enables crops to fix atmospheric nitrogen will be available to UK growers from this autumn. This launch represents the first commercialisation of the endophyte technologies from the University of Washington globally. The story began along the banks of the Snoqualmie River in western Washington State, where two pioneer [...]

Oilseed Rape

2020-07-03T16:50:06+01:00

Oilseed rape is not exempt from nutritional stresses during establishment and with a delicate and easily limited root structure, the consequences can be more important. Maximising growth at this early stage is critical. Ensuring optimal P supply leads to increased yield, oil content and higher stored phosphorus, enhancing seed quality. Reviewing the [...]

Beneficial Microbes in Broad Acre Cropping; an increasingly necessary input which is now a realistic option

2020-06-29T14:29:25+01:00

Beneficial Microbes in Broad Acre Cropping; an increasingly necessary input which is now a realistic option Over the last decade an explosion in microbial based product platforms for agriculture has occurred in the marketplace driven by a market that wants zero pesticides, little or no synthetic fertiliser and (no [...]
