2 Why Micronutrients … Fertilisers N Mn ZN Mg P S B Ca Fe Cu Mo K
Normal Mn ZN Mg P S B Ca Fe Cu Mo K Micronutrients involve in different vital plant physiological activities. Micronutrients can enhance plant growth and stress tolerance. They should be absorbed into the plant and transported where they can do their job. Otherwise, deficiencies will appear. Fertilisers

3 Foliar feeding Fast way of getting nutrients into plants compared with soil application. Especially important for the correction of nutrient deficiencies and the addition of micronutrients. Forms Micronutrients come in many different forms that affect their solubility and reaction (salts, oxides, chelates) in water and their uptake and usage by plants. Chelation is a term that describes an encapsulation process. Chelates (chel”, meaning a crab’s claw in Greek) are molecules with a neutral charge.

4 Fulvates – for organic chelation
Fulvic Acids (liquid) K-fulvate Foliar Application Humic Acids (liquid) K-humate Soil/Foliar Application Humus / PeatyCoal Organic Humate Soil Application Humins (solid) Production of Fulvates and Humates Talk to us. It pays.

5 Plant Vegetation Decomposition Humus Fulvic Acids HumicAcids
Carbon 43 % Oxygen 50 % Hydrogen 5 % Humus Carbon 68 % Oxygen 22 % Hydrogen 6 % Plant Vegetation Decomposition HumicAcids Carbon 52 % Oxygen 40 % slow Talk to us. It pays.

6 Benefits of Fulvic acids
One of the ingredients of Omnia’s mate ranges is Fulvate Benefits of Fulvic acids FEATURES BENEFITS Medium size complex organic molecules that readily penetrate plant tissue (no decomposing required) Supports the growth of (feeds) beneficial micro-organisms Readily taken up by plants by roots or leaves as carbon food, stimulating plant growth Very water soluble Easy to use, compatible with all other chemicals (at suitable concentrations) Binds to metals Gentle chelates metals and makes them mobile through leaf cuticle (improved foliar absorption) Helps metal mobility within plant tissue (natural carrier) Softens the effects of organic molecules and high ionic strengths solutions (reduces leaf burn) Salicylic acid has a similar chemical composition to Asprin and acts in the plant in the same way Asprin acts in humans Talk to us. It pays. Web:

improve tank mix compatibility reduce burning effects from ‘hot’ spray mixes May be used regularly in fertigation applications Phenolic Carboxylic Acid Hydroxyl Groups Ketone Structure of Fulvates

8 Omnia’s special Organic Chelated formulas
Beside the fulvates, there are other organic chelating agents in Omnia’s Mate ranges. The products are unique to Omnia. These ingredients enhance uptake of nutrients. Omnia’s unique organic chelating formula Talk to us. It pays.

9 BUNCH OF MATES Omnia’s multi Mate ranges are organically chelated with
Fulvates and Other unique organic chelating agents Fulvates comprises both small and big molecules This enables both fast and extended uptake of micronutrients Includes all micronutrients Talk to us. It pays.

19 Literature …(from reputable journals)
Postbloom Humic- and Fulvic-based Zinc Sprays Can Improve Apple Zinc Nutrition G.H. Neilsen, E.J. Hogue, D. Neilsen and P. Bowen HortScience February 2005 vol. 40 no Zinc supplied as a fulvic-based Zn compound was absorbed and retranslocated to unsprayed new growth as effectively as zinc sulphate in apple seedlings of low Zn status grown hydroponically in the greenhouse. Similarly, fulvic- and humic-based compounds were as effective as zinc sulphate at improving short-term growth and Zn uptake into new tissues in Zn-deficient apple seedlings, with the best growth occurring at spray concentrations of Zn at 500 mg·L-1. Under field conditions, Zn concentration of peeled and washed `Jonagold' apples at harvest was increased, without phytotoxicity, by two or four postbloom sprays of fulvic Zn. It is therefore possible to use this material safely as an effective Zn-source after bloom. Talk to us. It pays.
