The use of fritted trace elements in peat-sand substrates






Acta Horticulturae (26): 129-140

The use of fritted trace elements in peat-sand substrates

The response to several rates, from 0-7.5 g/l, of trace element frits containing 2 % B, 2 %, Cu, 12 %, Fe, 5 % Mn, 0.13% Mo and 4 % Zn was studied with celery, tomato, cauliflower, pea and chrysanthemum. When hoof and horn meal was used as the N source the frit requirement exceeded that needed with ammonium nitrate, and there was less toxicity at the high rates.
