Microminerals (also known as trace elements) are micronutrients that are chemical elements. They include at least iron, cobalt, chromium, copper, iodine, manganese, selenium, zinc, and molybdenum.
Manganese is an essential trace element for living things. Soils, sediments and rocks are significant natural sources of manganese but most are not plant available. Manganese activates some important enzymes involved in chlorophyll formation & manganese deficient plants will develop chlorosis (yellowing) between the veins of their leaves.
Turf grown on sand is generally manganese deficient. Manganese is required for healthy root & shoot growth as well as disease suppression. The availability of manganese is partially dependent on soil pH & sandy soils are nearly always deficient in manganese. Increased iron and P levels can “tie up” manganese while liming can magnify a deficiency.
Liquid manganese has been chelated with carbon and other trace elements to minimise leaching, improve uptake and minimise the chance of toxicity from over-applying.
- Easy, convenient application
- May assist disease suppression
- Supports photosynthesis
- Chelated with carbon
- Better uptake
- Involved in the production of lignins
- Tougher plants
- Essential for maximum yield
- Essential for turf grown on sand
- Ideal for Fruit, Veggies, Vines, Grain, Strawberries and Turf
