Barley

Targeted nutrient supply for higher yield and quality

Basic Information

Barley is a very important grain in the world today. It ranks fourth in the world in quantity produced and area of cultivation of cereal crops. It is very versatile and has well adapted over the course of its evolution. In fact, it is the most adaptable cereal. Much of the world’s barley is produced in the regions where cereals such as maize and rice cannot grow well, including regions that extend into the arctic or subarctic. Barley species are found in most areas with Mediterranean climate. It also has a very good resistance to dry heat compared to other small grains. This feature allows it to grow near desert areas such as North Africa. The cultivation of cereals poses great challenges in terms of yield formation. Different biotic (pests, diseases) and abiotic (extreme weather conditions) factors can reduce the expected yields. A comprehensive nutrient supply is essential for yield formation, this also includes a good supply of micro-nutrients.

Important instructions for use: If several products are mixed while using our product, unforeseen reciprocal effects may occur. It is not possible to foresee all conditions that can occur in practice (e.g. temperature, kind of water, crop protection agents). Therefore, it is highly recommended to test the compatibility and the application of the intended products on a small scale first. We disclaim any responsibilities for damages which may ensue from interactions based on mixtures – especially – with other products, crop protection agents, plant protection products or fertilizers and/or from unusual conditions (temperature, kind of water, etc.).

Detailed Description

Barley seed treatment promotes germination and emergence of seedlings (see our ranges of NutriSeed® among others). In order to achieve optimum yields and qualities, a balanced and targeted supply of nutrients from the planting onwards is very important. Special mineral fertilizers and stabilized nitrogen fertilizers with NovaTec® technology are particularly suitable for this purpose as well as micronutrient fertilizers.
With the use of NovaTec® special mineral fertilizers, a continuous and efficient contribution is obtained that helps to reduce the amount of applications and translates into profitability in extensive crops.
Liquid fertilizers and biostimulants from the Basfoliar® range have positive effects on yield and quality formation. They increase the vitality and stabilize the plants against stress situations, which determine the success.
In order to meet the trace element requirement of the grain, especially in the high-yield range, in expected stress situations, and to avoid grain reduction, we recommend our fully chelated Nutrimix® Fluid SL fertilizer with all important trace elements that the grain needs.
