Slide background


Cucumbers benefit from nutrients including nitrogen to facilitate healthy growth as well as potassium and phosphorus to boost fruit production. Cucumbers also benefit from magnesium, potassium and other micronutrients, some, like calcium, can also help the plants avoid various disorders which can affect yield.


Cucumbers grow best with an uninterrupted supply of water and nutrients as well as high temperatures, humidity and light intensity.

Smart liquid fertiliser for cucumber crops

The proper application of our smart liquid fertilisers to cucumbers can lead to stronger plant growth, improved fungicide performance, improved saline conditions, improve root development and crop uniformity. Proper foliar nutrition can also reduce calcium related disorders, protect the plants against daily stress, reduce the loss of nitrogen to the environment and reduce ground water residues


We recommend the application of NHK and NHCA Delta, 1-4-All and CalFlux at stages throughout the growth cycle to help you get the best out of your cucumber crops.

  • Apply NHCaDelta or NHKDelta every 7-10 days
  • Best, via irrigation but also can be applied foliar
  • Dose rate: 2-5 Lt/Ha
  • Reduction in NO3 applications around 30%

  • Apply 1-4-All with NHDelta
  • Best, via foliar application
  • Dose rate: 2-5 Lt/Ha
  • Compatibility with most pesticides and fertilizers

  • Apply CalFlux following this program
  • Best, via foliar
  • Dose rate: 1-2 Lt/Ha
  • Compatibility with most pesticides and fertilizers
