2 Why Micronutrients … Fertilisers N Mn ZN Mg P S B Ca Fe Cu Mo K NormalMnZNMgPSBCaFeCuMoKMicronutrients 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 feedingFast way of getting nutrients into plants compared with soil application.Especially important for the correction of nutrient deficiencies and the addition of micronutrients.FormsMicronutrients 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.

19 Literature …(from reputable journals) Postbloom Humic- and Fulvic-based Zinc Sprays Can Improve Apple Zinc NutritionG.H. Neilsen, E.J. Hogue, D. Neilsen and P. BowenHortScience February 2005 vol. 40 noZinc 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.
