Senescence – Post-Harvest Foliar Trace Element Fertilising

Senescence – Post-Harvest Foliar Trace Element Fertilising Spray High K Foliar fertiliser now to maximise the full genetic potential of next season’s crops. All cells, tissues and organs in plants, senesce (grow old). Senescence is actually regarded as an evolutionary acquired process that is CRITICAL for plant fitness. Understanding its detailed molecular nature is not […]

Why Insects Don’t Attack Healthy Plants – Part 2

What Lowers Leaf Brix Sugar Levels and How to Increase Them Story at a Glance Latest thinking suggests insects don’t attack healthy plants with high Brix of over12% sugars. Plant health and Brix levels can be compromised by application of pesticides, high salt NPK fertilisers, GMO, no-till and greenhouse conditions. High Brix pushes about 50% […]

Why Insects Don’t Attack Healthy Plants – Part 1

Story at a Glance If an insect is attacking a plant, there is some indication the plant is not healthy. The fastest way to determine plant health is to test the plant leaf sap with an optical refractometer to measure plant sugars or Brix levels. Plants with Brix leaf sap in the 12-20% range are […]

You still have the problem. A good doctor will search for the cause of the problem and treat that. It’s the same with growing […]

Fertilising Made Simple with Kendon High K Foliar Fertiliser

The Importance of Fertilisation Fertilisation is crucial for cultivating healthy crops. Research by John Kempf suggests that most crops achieve less than 50% of their potential genetic yield, both in the USA and other regions. To overcome this limitation, farmers must prioritise proper fertilisation practices. Every farmer aims to maximise yield and nutrient density, minimise […]

Kendon High K Foliar Fertiliser

Tony – veggie market gardener – used to apply sulphate trace elements to the soil but switched to High K as the trace elements he required did not produce results in the timeframe.  The result? He rang to say he could see an improvement in his veggie crops the next day.  This matters in a […]
