Strawberry Special is a fully water soluble NPK fertilizer designed with a low nitrogen (N) content and intended to be used in conjunction with calcium nitrate and/or nitric acid. The nitrogen content of the calcium nitrate and/or nitric acid supplies much of the nitrogen the plant needs, and Strawberry Special provides the rest. When feeding
calcium nitrate and/or nitric acid, it is often necessary to reduce the level of the NPK feed to maintain an acceptable fertilizer concentration (EC level) in the irrigation water and Strawberry Special is designed to accommodate this.
Designed for the vegetative growth stage of the crop (up to flowers visible). For the fruiting stages add soluble potassium sulphate to raise potassium (K) levels and produce large, firm and sweet fruit.
Prevents excess nitrogen in the feed (excess nitrogen = excess leaf growth & soft fruit).
Provides sufficient trace elements even when used at reduced rates to stay within EC tolerances of the crop.
Contains the correct balance of nutrients to ensure healthy crops and firm sweet fruit.
Low EC formulation for crop to tolerate addition of calcium nitrate and/or nitric acid feeds.
Single product to use all season – supplement with potassium sulphate in the fruiting phase of the crop.
