Chelated micronutrients for foliar applications are often more effective than trace elements from inorganic sources. This may be largely because chelates not only guarantee the availability of micronutrients, but also facilitate absorption of the trace elements by the leaves.

For foliar applications, chelated micronutrients are most commonly applied in a solution with liquid fertilizers and/or plant protection products. However, micronutrients can also be applied alone. Our micronutrients are compatible with a wide range of plant protection products and fertilizers.

The EC value (Electrical Conductivity) is important for foliar feed products: the lower the EC, the less the chance of leaf scorching. Chelated micronutrients have usually lower ECs compared to other product types like metal sulfates.
