Beans

Complete, efficient and immediate nutrition for higher yields

Basic Information

Grain legumes are an important source of protein, both for human and animal nutrition. The bean plant is considered a nutrient-demanding plant, due to the small and shallow root system and the short cycle. Nitrogen is the nutrient most absorbed by the bean plant. Most of the absorbed N comes from the decomposition of organic matter in the soil. However, studies show that the symptomatic N fixation is not sufficient to meet the plant´s demand; therefore, it is recommended to apply this nutrient to the soil in the planting furrow and in coverage. Additionally, studies indicate positive effects through the application of molybdenum and cobalt in the treatment of seeds and for vegetative development. Applications of micronutrients, especially boron, zinc and manganese, to the soil and foliar are essential to increase productivity.

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 Information

In addition to the availability or supply of nitrogen (N) from the soil, the possible fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by rhizobium bacteria must also be taken into account. The beans absorb high amounts of N, K and Ca and to a lesser extent S, Mg and P. Beans are very sensitive to low humidity.
For granular application we recommend NovaTec®, for foliar application water-soluble fertilizers Hakaphos® or NovaTec® Solub. Biostimulants (e.g. Basfoliar® Kelp SL) can enhance the resistance to this stress and make the crop more profitable. To get a better crop development, micronutrients should be applied foliar (e.g. Fetrilon® Combi) during the vegetative stage.
