Download Application Guide of Hyfer Plus Foliar Fertilizer on Wheat

Wheat (Triticum spp.) is a cereal grain which is grown on more land area than any other commercial crop and is the most important staple food for humans. Wheat is a member of the grass family that produces a dry, one-seeded fruit commonly called a kernel. It grows between 2 and 4 feet (0.6 to 1.2 meters) tall. Wheat is one of the first cereals known to have been domesticated along with corn and rice, and wheat’s ability to self-pollinate greatly facilitated the selection of many distinct domesticated varieties. Much of the wheat used for livestock and poultry feed is a by-product of the flour milling industry. Wheat straw is used for livestock bedding. The green forage may be grazed by livestock or used as hay or silage.

Wheat is normally planted in 15-30 cm rows. Row spacing out to about 36 cm have little effect on yield in most seasons, although some yield reduction may be expected in very good seasons in wide rows. With zero tillage and moisture-seeking machinery there has been a trend to plant in rows as wide as 45 or 50 cm. Wheat is most productive when planted on soils that have good surface and internal drainage, a fertility level of at least medium and a neutral of slightly acidic soil. Fields that have poor surface or internal drainage or that are subject to prolonged overflow should not be planted with wheat. Test soils to determine fertilizer and lime needs well before planting time. Planting with a grain drill is the preferred method because it allows uniform depth of planting and results in a more uniform stand. Broadcast seeding followed by light disking or harrowing to cover the seed can be used where drilling is not convenient. A seeding rate of 60-90 pounds per acre of high quality seed planted into a good seedbed with adequate moisture is satisfactory. Adjust the seeding rate up to about 90 pounds per acre for broadcast planting, late planting, or planting into a poorly prepared seedbed or one with inadequate moisture. For proper emergence and a vigorous stand, plant seed at a depth of 1 to 2 inches. Coverage should be less in medium to heavy textured soils than in light or sandy soils. Coverage should also be reduced for late planting and for planting into soils with abundant moisture for emergence.

Proper Fertilizer application and timing is very important, as this may impact directly to the optimum yield potential and quality of the crop. Complete soil analysis is the best way to determine the total fertilizer requirement to be applied, FEEKES SCALE is use to determine when to apply fertilizer. The usual practice of Macro nutrient (N,P,K,S) supplementation is via soil application. Although micronutrients are required in lesser amount than macronutrients, deficiency of any of this element has a very large impact on the quality and potential yield of the plant. Foliar fertilizer application of nutrient can be use to supplement the immediate requirement of the plant. Hyfer Plus Foliar Fertilizer, is a unique blend of properly balanced essential macro and micro nutrients, vitamins, hormones, amino acid, humic acid, and surfactant, formulated to supplement necessary nutrients for optimum plant development .
