BOOSTER-Mag improves plant vitality at Apayao, Philippines.

Two large ﬁelds were prepared in an identical manner using identical hybrid rice seedlings. At leaf 5 (5 weeks after transplant), BOOSTER-Mag was ﬁrst sprayed (2% v/v, 1.7 kg/ha).
Five further treatments were applied at 14 day intervals over a 10 week period.
BOOSTER-Mag has been manufactured using Calix’s proprietary “mineral honeycomb” magnesium oxide, a novel, nano-active material already demonstrating remarkable results in sewer and waste water, biogas, and aquaculture applications.Download the Solution Spec Sheet
