Micronutrients such as iron, manganese and zinc are crucial to the health of plants and crops. They contribute to the improvement of crop quality and higher yields around the world. Chelation of micronutrients improves the availability of these elements in soil, foliar and hydroponic applications.
This is ever more important as rising world population reduces the amount of arable land for food production, necessitating the cultivation of poor soils. Application by fertigation – where plant nutrients are supplied in a liquid solution – is key in this segment.
