VitaFer Cu

Mineral fertiliser for the intervention and preventive supply of copper and nitrogen. 

Density 1.35kg/l 

pH 5.0 – 6.5 


Recommendations for use: 

– In order to provide copper as a preventive and intervention measure, in the event of a deficit in the plants 

– In crops with a high demand for copper: cereals, sugar beet, vegetable crops and orchards    

– In order to improve the winter hardiness of crops 

– To increase resistance to biotic stress caused by harmful pathogens and abiotic stress caused by drought, high temperatures or frost. 

– To improve crop quality and increase storability 

The role of copper in plants: 

  • Influences proper ear formation in cereals and the flowering process 
  • Responsible for the correct development of the root system 
  • Good nutrition with this element results in better grain filling in the ear 
  • Strengthens the mechanical resistance of the plant and increases resistance to lodging 
  • Increases plant resistance to fungal and bacterial diseases 
  • Increases protein, fat and sugars in the crop.    
  • Improves the storability of vegetables   

Copper deficiencies result in:

  • Disease of a newly cultivated land occurring in cereals that becomes apparent during the dry season: chlorosis of leaf margins, bleaching, and twisting of leaves, bleaching of ears
  • Excessive and prolonged earing of cereals
  • Delaying the flowering phase of cereals
  • Empty ears in cereals
  • Blue colouring of the leaves in tomatoes
