Foliar feeding through Mate Ranges
Fertilisers 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. N Normal Mn ZN Mg P S B Ca Fe Cu Mo K Why 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. 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. Chelation is a term that describes an encapsulation process. Chelates (chel, meaning a crabs claw in Greek) are molecules with a neutral charge.
Talk to us. It pays. 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
Web: to us. It pays. Benefits of Fulvic acids FEATURESBENEFITS 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 solubleEasy to use, compatible with all other chemicals (at suitable concentrations) Binds to metalsGentle 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) One of the ingredients of Omnias mate ranges is Fulvate
When and where Any Foliar application to :- improve plant responses 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
Talk to us. It pays. Omnias special Organic Chelated formulas Beside the fulvates, there are other organic chelating agents in Omnias Mate ranges. The products are unique to Omnia. These ingredients enhance uptake of nutrients. Omnias unique organic chelating formula
Talk to us. It pays. BUNCH OF MATES Omnias multi Mate ranges are organically chelated with 1.Fulvates and 2.Other unique organic chelating agents Fulvates comprises both small and big molecules This enables both fast and extended uptake of micronutrients Includes all micronutrients

BowenE.J. HogueD. NeilsenP. 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.
