OCION FT33 is a liquid specialty nutrient fertilizer specifically designed for greenhouse and nursery crops. It provides the essential plant micronutrients copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), nitrogen (N), and sulfur (S) in their most bioavailable form to the soil or plants that may be deficient. OCION FT33 may be applied to plants as a foliar spray or to the soil by hand held sprays, drip or spray irrigation systems in an easy dust free application on all plants grown in greenhouses, nurseries and orchards.
OCION’s proprietary Aqueous Ion Matrix (AIM) technology in OCION FT33 provides support to water-soluble mineral ions to be stabilized in its biologically active mineral forms in the matrix until they reach the target that eventually enhances the nutrient bioavailability.
It can be added to the fertilizer mixing tank and used as a spray on plants, substrate, or directly through the irrigation water systems. In addition to correcting the copper and zinc deficiency in the substrate, as a bonus ionic copper keeps the water clean and water lines free of biofilm. Also, drippers and spray nozzles are kept free from staining. Regular use of OCION FT33 brings enormous benefits to plants and farmers and improves the quality of the product and yield.
How It Works
OCION FT33 is based on a proprietary aqueous ion matrix technology that provides support to the water-soluble mineral ions stabilizing and staying in their most biologically active form in the matrix that eventually enhancing and retaining the nutrient bioavailability until they reach the target. This distinct character differentiates this product from regular copper and zinc sulfate formulations. The synergic effect of copper and zinc made this product to be the one of the most efficient and effective substitutes for many copper-zinc based nutrient mixtures.
The rates of copper and zinc in this application are in ppb – ppm level, therefore, it does not cause any environmental adverse effect to reservoir water. As an additional benefit, this keeps the irrigation line, nozzles and filters clean and free of biofilm. The character of the ionic matrix of the product reduces the precipitation and formation of salt sediment in lines, nozzles, filters and drippers. Farmers also noticed that using OCION FT33 kept walls, floors, plugs and trays clean.
What Users Are Saying
In 2014 I was made aware of the potential advantages of a new product from Canada: OCION FT 33. I decided to try the product during the growing season of 2014 and it turned out to be a great success. This liquid fertilizer, made up from Ionized Copper and Zinc mineral salts, delivers the micro nutrients Cu and Zn as well as sulphur. Following OCION’s recommendation we started to add the product to our water reservoirs at the recommended concentration and stopped the addition of ordinary Copper Sulfate to the A/B fertilizer containers. By adding OCION FT 33 to the outside water reservoirs and the special properties of OCION FT 33, which stays in permanent solution and does not precipitate, did we get the significant advantage of cleaner fresh irrigation water and cleaner irrigation lines without bio-film. Since we have started using OCION FT 33 we remained enthusiastic about the results that the product brings to us. Our multiple year experience with this product and the change of adding the necessary Cu micro nutrient to the irrigation water has brought us a lowered infection pressure. We are totally convinced of the advantages of using OCION FT 33.
