Application on cucumbers (watermelons, melons)
Treatment of seeds and seedling steeping with the plant growth stimulator VIMPEL®  (2-3% solution) and complex micronutrient fertilizer LURS® Hit (5% solution) results in:
  • formation of a protective coating around the seed, which protects against the negative influence of the environment and impedes the development of superficial infections;
  • increase of the germination rate and field germination of seeds up to 7% and seedling growth energy, which makes it possible to generate a given stand density of plants;
  • enhancing of active development of root system and sprouts.

Application of the plant growth stimulator VIMPEL® (application rate 0.5 L/ha) in the phases of 3 – 5 true leaves, active growth and 1 – 2 applications during fruit initiation every 10 – 14 days:
  • accelerates the metabolic processes in tissues, plants absorb more intensively food compounds from the soil and from micronutrient fertilizers when applying foliar feeding, fertilizing effectiveness is increased by 30%;
  • enhances the efficacy of pesticides by 20-25%;
  • decreases by 2 – 2.5 times disease development intensity;
  • activates development of soil microorganisms by 1.5 – 2 times;
  • enhances heat and drought resistance of plants;
  • increases fruit productivity, marketability and quality.
Adding of the complex universal micronutrient fertilizer LURS® multikompleks (application rate 1.0 – 2.0 L/ha) at this time provides the plant with all the necessary nutrients, regardless of changes in weather conditions or the physiological state of the soil. Besides, due to it:
  • solids content increases by 2%;
  • increases sugar and vitamin content;
  • weight and fruit number (plant productivity) increases.
Application of the micronutrient fertilizer LURS® colofermin iron (application rate 2.0 – 3.0 L/ha) and LURS®  colofermin boron (application rate 0.5 – 1.0 L/ha) is determined by increased demand of cucumbers in iron and boron. Deficiency of iron leads to chlorophyll destruction, chlorosis can be observed on young leaves. Boron has a positive effect on plant growth, and improves pollination of flowers.

Application of micronutrient fertilizers LURS® (S, Cu, Zn, Mn, Mo, Mg) is conducted when there is deficiency of the corresponding elements.

According to the data of leading research institutions:
  • seed pretreatment: VIMPEL®+LURS® Hit and treatments in the phase of 3 – 5 true leaves and during active growth with VIMPEL® increase productivity by 12% (in the case of watermelons this index is 5,600 kg/ha);
  • if adding to the previous scheme treatment with the micronutrient fertilizer LURS® multikompleks during active growth extra yield amounts to (in the case of watermelons it’s 7,900 kg/ha).
Application of the plant growth stimulator VIMPEL® with micronutrient fertilizers from the LURS® series in cultivation technology of cucumbers (seed treatment, then plant treatment in the phase of active growth and in the phase of fruit initiation) leads to the highest economic return. Yield increase is from 5,600 to 9,700 kg/ha with improved quality index.
