WUXAL Ascofol in asparagus

24.01.2020 – WUXAL Ascofol is one of the top sellers in the WUXAL portfolio. The biostimulant effect in combination with valuable nutrients gives you a great variability of usage.



Germany was the first country, WUXAL Ascofol was introduced to in 2002. The product is still successful in several crops. One of the first crops it has been applied to was asparagus. The young asparagus shoots are a popular spring vegetable in Germany.


Matthias Johnen is sales representative from our German distribution partner Hauert MANNA. In new asparagus plants, he recommends the application of WUXAL Ascofol in combination with WUXAL Top P. During cold times in spring, root development must be optimally supported. The seaweed in combination with boron and phosphorus is the perfect combination for that.



In preparation for high quality yields in the next year, he advises to use WUXAL Ascofol after sprouting to give the crop a good start in spring and to prevent from hollow stalks. The energy that is gained during summer and autumn is stored in the root system during winter and will be activated in spring.



Farmers like to use WUXAL Ascofol especially during hot and dry summer times.
