FERTIMIX-Zn 10% is a liquid product chelated with EDTA. It can be applied both via foliar and via radicular, being rapidly absorbed by all organs of the plant. It is aimed at correcting zinc lacks. The role of zinc in the plant is essential in nucleic acid synthesis, auxins and growth hormones metabolism, promotes protein synthesis, contributes seed formation and is essential for the chlorophyll formation.
FERTIMIX-Zn 10% increases the tolerance of plants to environmental stressors such as strong light intensity and drought. In addition, it provides the Zn that plants require to use all the light energy absorbed during the photosynthesis process. In the absence of Zn, the excess energy in the leaf cells generates extremely dangerous oxygen free radicals that damage chlorophyll and lipids, leading to a rapid development of chlorosis and necrosis, especially on long days and with high brightness.
FERTIMIX-Zn 10% guarantees a continuous availability of Zn in the root zone. Zn deficiencies cause permeability of root membranes, losing sugars and amino acids. This exudation from the roots to the ground, in addition to undernourishing the plant, feeds the pathogens. For this reason, FERTIMIX-Zn 10% allows to control the exudation of these compounds and, consequently, the infection of roots by pathogens is drastically reduced.
FERTIMIX-Zn 10% is especially recommended in sandy soils, with low organic matter content and pH> 7.4. Zn demanding crops are corn, sorghum or citrus.
Do NOT mix with strong acid reaction products (sulfuric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric, acid, etc) as well as emulsifying products and products with alkaline reaction. Before preparing the final mixture, a compatibility test has to be done. In case of doubt, ask to the Technical Department.
