0-0-0 + 2.5 S + 5% Fe
Indispensable for the formation of chlorophylls
Agro-Fe is a liquid foliar nutrient designed for a quick and safe supply of iron, and is a proven treatment against iron deficiencies. Its efficacy comes from the chelation of this micronutrient with citric acid. This unique process makes iron readily available and mobile in the plant. Citric acid is a natural organic acid found in all living organisms, thus it is not toxic and it is involved in many metabolic processes of the plant.
Iron is the micronutrient most consumed by a majority of plants. It acts as a catalyst in many of the plant’s physiological processes. Iron plays an essential role in the synthesis of chlorophyll and in maintaining optimal photosynthetic efficacy during periods of growth. It also intervenes in the synthesis and structure of many proteins. Iron favours the transformation of nitrates into ammonium for protein synthesis and binding of atmospheric nitrogen. The breathing process of plants requires iron. Iron also favours the transport of manganese. Iron deficiency causes typical yellowing or chlorosis that affects young leaves first. Direct repercussions ensue on the production potential such as lack of vigour, coulure, fruit malformation, and low sugar content. The presence of citric acid in the Agro-Fe solution improves photosynthesis, energy production, and resistance to stress.
- Effectiveness and fast-action
- Fast “regreening” effect
- Better use of nitrogen
- Secured yield
- Superior quality crops
In conclusion, Agro-Fe is a foliar solution developed to prevent ferrous chlorosis in all crops. Agro-Fe helps avoid severe effects on production yield and quality. Its chelated form provides rapid and systemic action to optimize the plant’s photosynthetic function. Agro-Fe can be applied through the entire growth cycle, but it is important to promote early input to help sensitive crops.
