Santa Clara Agrociência launches Sulfeto SK with bacteriostatic effect
Jul. 5, 2018
On June 18, Brazilian company Santa Clara Agrociência presented Sulfeto SK, a special fertilizer with a bacteriostatic effect that reduces the use of pesticides. It is a mixed mineral product that is rich in potassium and sulfur and being compatible with mixtures of pesticides, increases the efficiency of insecticides – for being insect scavengers – and increases the tolerance of plants to diseases (through its fungal action).
According to the maker, Sulfeto SK is an ideal fertilizer for intensive agricultural systems and for crops sensitive to salinity. This is due to its low salt index and for not containing carbonates, chloride, nitrate, oxides and sulfate in its formulation. Having a high solubility, the product presents an “excellent compatibility of tank mixture”.
Santa Clara Agrociência highlighted that one of the differentials of Sulfeto SK was the easy management and low operational cost. “Sources of Sulfur ready assimilable by plants increase the formation of amino acids and proteins. It increases the specific weight, the concentration of solid solubles, the Brix, the ATR and the high content of carbs of grains or fruits. It improves the quality and health of the product harvested, increasing the conservation time.”
The presentation occurred during the fourth International Conference Santa Clara Agrociência, held between June 18 and 20 at JP Hotel in Riberão Preto, São Paulo. The event saw approximately 250 participants from all regions of the country, among them agronomists, consultants, and technicians with decision-making power on the purchases of agricultural inputs.
