WARNING: 4 Sato® Steps is a comprehensive crop care system that provides the basic crop needs for the main 12 macro, meso and micronutrients for an optimal growing cycle and unlocking the potential of each crop.
General recommendation for fruit bushes and trees: Perennial fruit crops (both shrubs and trees) vary in age, branching, and total crown area. Given that all these plants are perennial, there is no risk of removal of humic or fulvic acids with the end of the season, because all surplus goes into the root system and continues to nourish the tree or bush for the next season, so the dosage for fruit trees and shrubs is calculated per tree/bush.
SOILS: The need for macronutrients in fruit trees changes with their age and varies over the vegetative and generative organs of the plant, since there is no same removal of nutrients as in annual crops. Both SatoSoil® Soil improvers and SatoGrow® Biostimulants are introduced into the trunk circle for precise feeding of the tree/bush. In the autumn application, it’s recommended to introduce the maximum dose, in the spring – the minimum one. For irrigation, it’s recommended to activate granulates (soil improvers or biostimulants) with SatoHum® liquid formulations and SatoGrow® liquid organo-mineral biostimulants.
VEGETATION BEGINNING: Treatment of saplings, bushes and flowers of fruit crops with Sato® Seeds or SatoHum® K compounds is compatible with treatment by classical protectants without reducing the rates of their application, and helps to increase shoots viability and ovary development.
GROWTH: Our SatoHum® solutions have a guaranteed composition with high content of humic and fulvic acids with amino acids of plant origin. It’s not recommended to exceed the total dose of SatoHum® liquid formulations over 5 l/ha/season, starting from the germination and budding phase. If SatoHum® Potassium soap is used for prophylactic purposes, it is recommended to apply the minimum dose. If treatment is carried out to fight active pathogens/parasites, the dose indicated in the product card for the specific pest shall be applied.
HARVEST: Simultaneous fertilization with several SatoHum® products is not expected. It’s not recommended to exceed the specified application rates. For single, not systemic application of SatoHum® products, the maximum dosage of the product is recommended.
