Oasis introduces one-bag hydroponic fertiliser

Specifically formulated for commercial hydroponic production of lettuce, herbs and vegetables, the new 16-4-17 Hydroponic Fertiliser from OASIS® Grower Solutions (OGS) is a one-bag solution that replaces two-part systems traditionally used by commercial hydroponic growers.

“The two-part fertiliser system is outdated", says Dr. Vijay Rapaka, Grower Research Manager at OGS. “In talking with growers, we learned it is overly complicated. Not only does it add to the amount of inventory a grower must carry but, more importantly, it increases the chance of costly mixing errors, especially when employing temporary help,” states Rapaka.

With its proprietary blend of nutrients, the OASIS® 16-4-17 Hydroponic Fertiliser is one of the highest quality and purest formulations available on the market today. While the formulation is 100% water soluble, the most unique feature is that its micronutrient package is buffered and includes an essential blend of iron chelates from EDTA, EDDHA, and DPTA. All of which makes the plant’s uptake of critical nutrients in the OASIS® 16-4-17 Hydroponic Fertiliser even easier. This helps dramatically enhance root and shoot growth, as well as crop uniformity. This is especially true when used with HORTICUBES® and HORTICUBES® XL Hydroponic Growing Media on day zero, where critical nutrients are available at the exact moment plants are ready for the uptake. Plus, its low salt index virtually eliminates any concern about phytotoxicity

“In tests, we’ve seen that our 16-4-17 fertiliser increases top growth by as much as 200% when used on day zero, as opposed to the traditional usage on day three or later after seeding, beams Dr. Rapaka. “And the increase in fresh weight is rather remarkable, as well,” Rapaka concluded.

All of these benefits are achieved from a single bag of OASIS® 16-4-17 Hydroponic Fertiliser, which helps growers simplify their hydroponic operations, slice labour costs in half, better manage inventory, and even reduce supply costs.
