Biota Nitro

Biota Nitro is a nitrogen fertiliser in organic form that feeds both the plant and the soil life. The nitrogen in Biota Nitro consists mainly of peptides and amino acids, substances that are essential for the growth of the plant. The amino acids in Biota Nitro are made from plant residue, which means they can be readily used by plants. Despite the high organic matter content, the solution is clear and therefore suitable for use in irrigation systems and drip lines. In addition, Biota Nutri is suitable for foliar fertilization, for example when the plant experiences nitrogen deficiency.

Plants can absorb several forms of nitrogen, of which the plant uses the least amount of energy in the uptake of amino acids: the plant doesn’t have to produce these amino acids itself from nitrate or ammonium. This can also help the plant in stress conditions, because the production of amino acids slows down in high stress situations. Plants need carbon to grow, which can be supplied by the amino acids, instead of taking it from the organic matter in the soil. The amino acids also feed the bacteria in the soil, which is important for good soil quality. Bacteria convert the amino acids into ammonium and nitrate, so that all the necessary nitrogen forms are present for the plant. An important advantage of fertilizing with Biota Nitro is that amino acids do not wash out easily: they remain present in the soil to be absorbed when necessary.

Biota Nitro is the new name for Biota N15.

Benefits
  • Directly available nitrogen in organic form
  • Feeds soil life
  • Reduces soil stress
Application

Biota Nitro is suitable for use on all crops through foliar application and irrigation. When used as primary fertilizer, the application is equal to mineral fertilizers. It is advised to always have an expert make a fertilization plan and to start with a test application. The exact application depends on the soil conditions and the crop. No guarantees can be given in the event of incorrect use. Always carry out a test mixing and test application when combining with other products! Always thoroughly stir the product before use!

APPLICATION DOSE DOSAGE

Citrus and fruit trees Start when the first leaves or buds form. Repeat every 7-15 days.
Grapevine and olive Every 7-15 days from bloom until fruit development.
Ornamental Start for 5-6 weeks during development of the first roots. Apply weekly, especially during bud formation.
Potato During development of tubers, especially in sandy soils and at the end of the vegetative stage.
