Benefits of Kelpak on Leafy Vegetables
Kelpak trials on leafy vegetables including lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli show significant increases in head weight above the control:
- Increases vigour of root and shoot growth
- Improves nutrient uptake
- Increases resistance to drought
- Increases resistance to waterlogged conditions
- Improved head size and higher yields
Recommended application rates
Dip the seedling tray roots or roots of plants from seedbed in a 1:100 dilution before plant-out and spray 2-3 L/ha 14 days after plant-out.
Repeat once or twice at 14 day intervals.
Do not spray after button formation.
Start with foliar application at 3 to 4-leaf stage for direct seeded crops.
Kelpak can be applied in mixes with other pesticides and foliar nutrients, but pH of spray solution should be below 7 for optimum results.
