Visitors to this year’s Midlands Machinery Show will have a chance to win a field trial of a leading biostimulant brand.
Algifol, which is made from seaweed, is giving away three prizes at the show, including a ten litre can of its biostimulant worth £200.
With applications ranging from 500ml to one litre and up to four applications per season, depending on the crop, a ten litre can should be more than enough for a grower to undertake a field trial.
A one litre of Algifol will also be given away at the show as a second and third-place prize.
To enter, visitors to the show need to complete an entry form, available from Agilfol’s UK distributor, MJP Supplies, which can be found on stand 65 in JCH 2.
Marcus Palmer, who runs MJPS Supplies, has used Algifol on his family farm in south Lincolnshire since 2005.
“We know from first-hand experience how good Algifol is, and whenever we have exhibited at the Midlands Machinery Show, it has generated a lot of interest from growers looking for a natural way to treat their crops,” he says. “This year, as well as talking about how good Algifol is and how it can help establish crops, increase their disease immunity and improve both the look of crops and yield, we want a grower to conduct their own field test. That’s why we’ve decided to run a competition giving away a ten-litre can. ”
North Atlantic brown algae
Algifol is a concentrated brown algae gathered from the North Atlantic, dried and refined to maximise its wealth of trace elements, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, polyuronides and growth-regulating plant hormones.
Algifol can be applied by knapsack, trailed or mounted sprayers or planes to a wide range of crops, including potatoes, oilseed rape, peas, sugar beer and cereals.
