- About Us
Foliar application of ALPINE K20-S® liquid fertilizer can increase yields, but should only be considered as a supplement to a balanced soil-applied nutrient program. ALPINE K20-S is powered by Bio-K® the ultimate in potassium technology, only from ALPINE.
Potassium: Potassium teams with nitrogen and sulfur to produce protein essential for proper plant growth. The addition of potassium to your crop nutrition program provides the following:
• helps increase drought resistance
• helps develop stronger stalks and stems
• maintains a healthy plant metabolism
• assists in photosynthesis
• helps translocation within the plant
• increases protein and starch levels within the plant
• aids in fighting diseases
Boron is critical to move carbohydrates from the leaves to the fruit.
Manganese plays a vital role in photosynthesis and general plant tissue health.
Molybdenum plays a key role in the transformation of nitrogen into amino acids. The quicker the plant converts nitrates into amino acid, the less energy the plant will require to manage nitrates, allowing that energy to be utilized in performing other plant functions, increasing nutrient use efficiencies. Molybdenum also plays an important role in allowing legumes to symbiotically fix atmospheric nitrogen.
Foliar applications of ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer has the advantage of allowing producers to add necessary nitrogen, potassium, sulfur, and micronutrients when:
ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer may be mixed with other fertilizers, fungicides, or pesticides. Always jar test to determine compatibility.
ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer is recommended for use on the following crops:
Corn (Field): Apply 4–8 L per acre from 2 leaf to VT
Alfalfa: Apply 4–8 L to the crown at early green–up and then again after each cutting allowing for sufficient regrowth.
Canola: Apply 4–8 L per acre at bud to bolting stage.
Sugarbeets: Apply 4–8 L prior to row canopy closing or anytime tissue tests indicate additional potassium is needed.
Dry Beans: Apply 2–4 L per acre at early bloom.
Potatoes: Apply 8 L per acre at tuber initiation and repeat at tuber bulking.
Small Grains: Apply 4–8 L per acre at tillering to early boot stage.
Soybeans: Apply 4–8 L per acre at the R2–R4 growth stages.
NOTE: These recommendations are believed to be reliable and should be followed carefully. Failure to follow label directions or improper application practices all of which are out of the control of the manufacturer or seller can result in plant or leaf damage. Crop injury may occur from unusual weather conditions. The user assumes all risks of use and handling. Do not apply ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer to any crop sensitive to sulfur as plant or leaf injury may occur. It is always best to apply ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer early in the morning or late evening. Applications made during periods of high temperature (> 30°C) or low humidity (< 30%) can result in plant and leaf tissue damage.
ALPINE K20-S liquid fertilizer may be used foliar anytime additional nutrition is needed. Use enough water to ensure good coverage.
