PERLKA®

Fertiliser meets application technique

On the program of the yearly sales conference was a meeting with the company Horsch in Schwandorf. Horsch is a very innovative company in the sector of tillage and seeding and offers various machines to combine the seeding and fertilising process.

Target of the meeting was to combine the knowledge of both companies and be always aware of the most modern possibilities for application of Perlka®.

Perlka® - when Yield and Quality needs Soil Health

During their field tour mid-April Hyphen Zhang and Dr. Malte Römer travelled through the North of China running sale presentations for Perlka® and meeting growers at their farm sites. Here in China, where Perlka® is also known as Zhuangbobo®, the grower's awareness for soil health and soil quality is in the learning process. Particularly, in cropping areas such as Liaoning province, intensified greenhouse cultivation with small areas -often 1000m2 only- are subject to higher pressure of productivity and quality.  

 

Longtime evaluation of a Calcicum Cyanamide use at the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture

Over a period of 10 years the Bavarian State Research Center for Agriculture tested the effect of calcium cyanamide in potatoes. In 17 trials the effect of a fertilization with 400 kg/ha of calcium cyanamide was tested. The results showed, that in average approximately 5% of the potatoes did show less or no damage from wireworm infestations. The additionally marketable tubers payed off more than three times the additional costs incurred.

Rice fertilization in Italy - a 113 years success story with Perlka®

The history of Perlka® in rice begins around 1910 in northern Italy with the first experimental tests executed by the botanical garden of Turin in which the fertilizing efficacy of the product was clearly proved. Slow nitrogen supply with simultaneous lime effect, which counteracts soil acidification and sustainably maintains and improves soil fertility. The advantages of Perlka® in rice were subsequently confirmed by many scientific trials done since the mid 1930’s until today.

Healthier crops and fewer slug problems in oil seed rape due to calcium cyanamide Perlka®

Fertilization with 200 - 250 kg/ha calcium cyanamide Perlka® directly before sowing (no incorporation, no waiting time!) ensures ideal starting conditions for oil seed rape. The ammonium-based nitrogen effect and the highly reactive lime ensure rapid but not too rapid growth of the young rape plants. At the same time, the fertilizer shows quite a good side effect against slugs and slug eggs. Experience in recent years has also shown that such calcium cyanamide fertilization also significantly reduces the risk of early infections of club root.

Calcium cyanamide fertilizer PERLKA® for the first time authorized in Russia!

On the ninth of June 2016 our multi-functional fertilizer calcium cyanamide PERLKA® for the first time has been authorized in Russia. It took two years of efforts to achieve this fertilizer authorization. A comprehensive data file had to be supplied to the authorities and the fertilizer`s effects on yield and quality had to be approved in field trials under practical conditions. Different Russian authorities and research institutes were involved in the procedure. Finally AlzChem has fulfilled all requirements successfully.
