Why use chelated micronutrients?

High performance chelated micronutrients deliver essential metals to plants, increasing agricultural productivity. 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.

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.


The booklet is an initiative of various fertiliser companies (Nouryon, SQM, YARA) and a laboratory (Eurofins Agro) which are all active within the fertigation industry.
