Our 6-Pack Kale Mix is a blend of 2 or 3 varieties depending on the availability of ingredients when mixing in the UK.
The mix ensures a good take when sowing and, if the soil or conditions don’t suit one variety, the others should take over. Different growth rates and habits provide a good established crop if soil conditions are good.
Kale can be sometimes be difficult to establish because of its vulnerability to pests during its early growing stages. Flea beetle, slugs and pigeons all predate on it as it emerges.
COMBICOAT Fit Treated
Combicoat Fit is a new revolutionary seed dressing, designed specifically to improve brassica establishment. It is a concentrated fertilizer coating containing Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potash along with trace elements Boron, Magnesium, Copper and Zinc. The fact that the fertiliser is placed on the seed means that the newly germinated seedling has the nutrients it requires immediately.
Treating the seed with Combicoat Fit means the plant spends far less time at the cotyledon stage and grows away quickly from pest pressures.
Comibcoat Fit works in four ways:
- Accelerates seed germination
- increases wate efficiency
- Improves root development
- Increases plant vigour
Sowing rate is 2.00Kgs/.40Ha (1acre).
