Active PODFILL™

Enhances pollen development, fertilization, and yield of peas, lentils, soybeans and other beans

Active PODFILL™ improves pollen hydration, germination, pollen tube growth and
viability. Active PODFILL™ encourages bee foraging activity which increases fertilization.
Plants produce more fruit sets and an increased number of larger, more uniform and higher
quality pods and seeds, ultimately resulting in greater yields.

How it works

Active PODFILL™ contains nitrogen in the form of amine and micronutrients to maintain high enzymatic and hormonal activity during the reproductive phase of plant growth.

Potassium is provided to regulate anther dehiscence, pollen hydration/imbibition, and pollen tube growth, needed for successful fertilization, and to promote uniform fruit size and quality.

Easy to absorb and penetrate through membranes where it is needed, a boron-amine complex fosters pollen viability, seed set, carbohydrate and nucleic acid metabolism, cell differentiation and maturity, sugar transport, uptake of calcium, magnesium, potassium, synthesis of cytokinins, translocation of auxins, and root tip initiation.

The polyamine complex aids in pollen germination, hydration, viability, pollen tube growth, accumulation of secretory vesicles in pollen tubes, and fertility. It also attracts bees, minimizes abortive flowers, and increases yield.

Guaranteed Minimum Analysis

Total Nitrogen (N) 8%
Available Phosphate (P2O5) 4%
Soluble Potash (K2O) 12%
Boron (B)(actual) 2%

When to use

Soybean, peas, lentils and other pulse crops: apply once at the pre-bloom – 30% bloom stage

Application Rate

General Crop Use: apply at fungicide timing as a foliar spray using 2.5 L per hectare (1 L per acre) with between 50 – 100 L water per hectare (20 – 40 L / acre) for ground applications and 30 – 60 L of water per hectare (12 – 24 L / acre) for aerial applications. Allow a minimum of 3 weeks between applications.

Benefits

TAILORED FORMULA SPECIFIC TO PULSES:

More economical formula compared to other nutrient solutions tailored specifically to the enhance the pollination and fertilization of peas, lentils, soybeans and other beans.

INCREASED POLLEN TUBE GROWTH:

Pollen tube growth is essential for sexual reproduction to occur in plants. Active PODFILL™ contains nitrogen, potassium, and a polyamine complex to support pollen tube growth and accumulation of secretory vesicles in pollen tubes.

INCREASED FERTILIZATION:

Active PODFILL™ helps regulate anther dehiscence and pollen hydration. It also increases pollen volume and viability while the polyamines present in Active PODFILL™ help attract bees, resulting in greater fertilization and minimal abortive flowers.

INCREASED SIZE AND QUALITY OF FRUITS, PODS AND SEEDS:

Active PODFILL™ increases fertilization and supports carbohydrate and nucleic acid metabolism, sugar transport, cell differentiation and maturation. This results in a higher volume of larger, more uniform, high quality fruits, pods, and seeds.

 INCREASED NUTRIENT MOBILIZATION AND ABSORPTION:

Active PODFILL™ boosts the uptake of calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

 INCREASED PERFORMANCE UNDER STRESS CONDITIONS:

Active PODFILL™ benefits are unaffected by unfavourable conditions. It maintains the ability to simultaneously upregulate desirable pathways and downregulate undesirable pathways, allowing plants to maximize their genetic potential under cold, wet or drought conditions.
