The soil’s micronutrients are often unavailable to the plant due to chemical reactions that result in the adsorption of the positively charged metal ions by soil particles and the formation of solid metal hydroxides or salts. Our range of micronutrient products solves this by utilizing organic molecules known as chelating agents.
By selectively binding the metal ions in a protective grip with the right chelating agent, such precipitation will never take place. Like a claw, the chelate maintains its tight grasp until the ion reaches the plant and is absorbed by it. In fact, the word "chelate" comes from a Greek word meaning "crab's claw".
We have a strong RD&I organization with the capabilities and expertise to maximize the benefits of micronutrients in your application
