Arbor Carbon’s Dr Paul Barber talks tech, his love for nature, and the species he’d love to see more with Deryn and Steve on the latest episode of the All The Dirt podcast.
ArborCarbon are the Australasian distributor for the MEDICAP and PHOSCAP range of systemic tree care implants, which are designed to mitigate premature decline in trees due to various health disorders and injury.
Systemic tree implants were developed in the United States more than 40 years ago. Since that time these implants have proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of a range of tree health disorders. These implants are delivered directly into the tree and are designed to remain safely within the tree with the contents delivered systemically throughout the tree with sap flow.
The implant provides the tree with a slow release nutrient that benefits the tree over a longer period of time, with the aim of improving plant vigour and general health and condition.
Implants are available in the following formulas, they can be used in combination with each other;
PHOSCAP (HIGH PHOSPHATE 0-50-30) is a special formulation of high water soluble phosphate, potassium and a range of trace elements designed to stimulate tree foliage. Provides phosphate for plant health and root enhancement, potassium for cell strength and rigidity, and essential trace elements to ensure a more complete nutrient feed. This implant treatment may be helpful to enhance protein and carbohydrate synthesis and aid in plant health tolerance to heat, cold and drought. Also reduces plant stress, enhances overall health and increases resistance to disease.
MEDICAP MD (12-4-4) A special blend of highly water soluble nutrients designed to stimulate tree growth including trace elements required for the production of healthy green foliage. Ideal for use on fruit, ornamental and native trees and designed to be effective for a number of years after a single application. Treatments may mitigate premature decline in health triggered by mechanical damage, sub-optimal soil conditions, disease or insect attack, waterlogging, drought or frost damage, transplant shock, or pruning shock.
MEDICAP MN (MANGANESE) This formulation of manganese is ideal in trees where manganese deficiencies are difficult to control with soil or foliage application. Such manganese deficiencies are normally associated with calcareous, arid or sandy soil conditions. Trees most susceptible include maple, peach, ornamental cherry, citrus and a range of deciduous fruit.
MEDICAP FE (IRON) A unique formulation of water-soluble iron effective in trees suffering iron deficiency where application of iron to the soil or foliage is ineffective. Such iron deficiencies are normally associated with calcareous, arid, or sandy soil conditions. Trees most susceptible include a range of eucalypt species, pin and white oak, black locust, birch, liquid amber, pines, magnolia, bauhinia, dogwood, podocarpus, poplar, citrus, peach, pear, apple and avocado.
MEDICAP ZN (ZINC) These zinc implants are effective in trees where zinc deficiencies are difficult to control by soil or foliage application. Such zinc deficiencies are normally associated with calcareous soils and are common in citrus, peach, nectarine, eucalypts, avocado, walnut, pecan and other nut-producing trees.
