Iron is one of the most abundant elements on earth and is essential for maintaining maximum green required for high production photosynthesis.
Iron is often not plant available and can be easily tied up in alkaline or even waterlogged soils. Over fertilising with elements like calcium, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, or copper can tie up iron if they are present in high amounts. Iron is essential for biological nitrogen fixation, protein synthesis, and making the leaf darker with more capacity to absorb solar energy. It also increases the waxy sheen on the leaf.
Symptoms of deficiency include leaves turning yellow or brown in the margins between the veins which may remain green, while young leaves may appear to be bleached. Fruit would be of poor quality and quantity. Any plant may be affected, but raspberries and pears are particularly susceptible, as well as most acid-loving plants such as azaleas and camellias.
Liquid Iron for lawns has been chelated with carbon and other trace elements to minimise leaching, improve uptake and minimise the chance of burning.
