How it works

How it works

Mode of action

Vidi Fortum contains seaweed extract with a guaranteed content of 1% betaine. Seaweed extract reduces water stress thus leading to better photosynthetic performance. Betaine is an amino acid that improves drought and salinity resistance. Vidi Fortum supports the rhizobiome by providing organic matter and stimulating its degradation. This stimulates growth of bacteria and fungi, resulting in improved uptake and utilisation of nutrients by the plants. Plants can take up Vidi Fortum via leaves and roots.

Directions for use

Directions for use

Preparation

  • Shake the container well before use
  • Fill the application tank with half the required amount of water
  • Add the required amount of Vidi Fortum to the water
  • Mix thoroughly
  • Add the remaining amount of water
  • Apply immediately after preparation

Application

Vidi Fortum can be applied via drench or drip at the base of the plant, around the roots or sprayed on the plant canopy.

Application as drench or via the irrigation system:

  • A separate tank/container is recommended for the proper preparation and application of the product
  • Always add Vidi Fortum to the irrigation water after the sand filter, ideally directly injected at the irrigation valve by means of an injection pump (e.g. Dosatron) or venturi
  • Avoid drainage in substrates when applying by drench/drip to prevent leaching
  • Make sure Vidi Fortum does not remain in the irrigation system during the night
  • Use disinfectants regularly to keep the irrigation system clean, but do not use Vidi Fortum at the same time as the disinfectant

Application via spraying:

  • Always ensure that the spray tank is clean
  • Ensure good crop coverage

  • Consult a Koppert advisor or a recognized distributor of Koppert products for advise on the best strategy for your situation
