WHAT IS ENERBITE?
EnerBite, a binary liquid phosphite fertiliser with trace additives, has been specifically developed for use with the BITE system.
EnerBite is rapidly taken up and translocated within the tree through the xylem vessels, due to the high mobility and low molecular weight of the ingredients. This translates into a noticeable improvement in nutrition and immediate increase of vigour. EnerBite also induces the production of particular organic compounds responsible for the tree’s natural defence mechanisms.
A recent paper ‘An enhanced trunk injection formulation of potassium phosphite against chestnut ink disease’ by Elisa Del Maso & Professor Lucio Montecchioreported that EnerBite treatment completely ceased the development of the disease in most cases.
EnerBite is supplied in 250ml bottles, 15 per case.
ENERBITE DOSAGE & USE
On average a dose consists of 1ml of EnerBite per 1cm of tree circumference at the treatment level. For example, one 250ml bottle of EnerBite is enough for one treatment of a tree with a DBH of 80cm.The infusion points should be located between the root collar and 1m in height. Typically, EnerBite treatment is recommended every two years on trees under stress or in decline.
Follow this simple calculation to determine how much EnerBite to use on a particular tree:
Tree Diameter at Breast Height (DBH cm) x 3.14 = ml EnerBite required
Infusion performance (liquid take – up) depends on species, physical, physiological and environmental factors. Although infusion can be carried out at any time with evergreen species, this is not the case with deciduous species which need to be in leaf. Infusion is ideally carried out when leaf transpiration is high (ie between spring & mid-summer) with sun, wind & sufficient soil moisture also being beneficial.
