Optima Sugar+ contains a high concentration of calcium combined with nitrogen, magnesium, organically complexed manganese and trace elements. Virtually all crops, especially sugar beets, will benefit from these nutrients during the growth phase.

Optima Sugar+ has been specially developed by Soiltech for use in sugar beet cultivation. Calcium plays a crucial role in building sugar levels (brix) in the crop. Sugar beets in particular make a lot of sugars and transport them to the tuber, increasing the sugar content in the beet.

Manganese is necessary for the formation of chlorophyll, which is also essential for the production of sugar. Would you like to know more about tasting and testing with Optima Sugar+? Be sure to check out our "knows why" page!
