Chelated micronutrients -- on the move to boost yields

Solutions 26(7): 63-66, 68, 70, 72
Chelated micronutrients -- on the move to boost yields
The use of chelated micronutrients has become widespread because they mix well with virtually all types of fertilizers and remain available when applied to the soil. When in the chelated form, metal micronutrients such as zinc, manganese, and copper are not precipitated by phosphates, carbonates and other soil and fertilizer components; thus they remain mobile and unfixed. They can move freely through the soil for uptake by the plant root system.
