Biota NPK 5-2-5 Low Organic
Biota NPK 5-2-5 is a multinutrient fertilizer especially suitable for use during the middle part of the crop cycle. It is unique in that it is registered for use in organic farming, with a low content of organic matter, chlorine, sodium and sulfur. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are present in solution and therefore directly available to the plant through foliar application as well as irrigation. The nutrients are sourced from plant-based materials, partly from agricultural residual streams.

It is advised to always have an expert make a fertilization plan and to start with a test application. The exact dosage 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!
