Fertmix Fe

FERTIMIX-Fe is a liquid product formulated with gluconic acid to prevent and correct iron chlorosis without any risk of contamination or phytotoxicity. Iron is involved in the synthesis of chlorophyll and its lack modifies the structure and functionality of photosynthetic activity, severely limiting the vegetative expression of crops in all its components: vigor, yield and quality.

Despite being one of the most abundant elements in the soil, iron deficiency or “iron chlorosis” (intervenal yellowing of young leaves) is common in crops, mainly due to the alkalinity of the soil, especially due to the presence of bicarbonates. Iron chlorosis begins at pH> 7.5. For each unit of pH increase (between 4 and 9) the availability of Fe is reduced 1000 times (100 times in the case of Mn, Zn and Cu). For that reason, at basic pH, the contribution of salts with iron does not correct iron chlorosis and it is essential to apply Fe complexed with FERTIMIX-Fe.

The application to the soil of FERTIMIX-Fe allows to maintain soluble and assimilable the Fe in the root zone, avoiding its oxidation to unassimilable forms. Iron applied with FERTIMIX-Fe remains stable in virtually any cultivable soil (pH range 2-10). Gluconic acid is completely biodegradable and has no detrimental effect on the soil or roots. The formulation of FERTIMIX-Fe based on gluconic acid, fully biocompatible molecule allows roots, leaves and rest of the wood to affinity recognize the complexed molecule, easily assimilating the Faith and avoiding and correcting and effectively correcting ferric chlorosis both by foliar path as in fertirrigation.

Mixtures & Compatibilities

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.
