Foliar Feeding with Polyaldocarbosate Super-Complexes
Two Sources of Soluble Nutrients for Foliar Feeding:
- Salts (e.g. zinc sulphate)
- Polyaldocarbosate super-complex
What is the Polyaldocarbosate Super-Complex?
- Derived from natural carbohydrate sources, reacted under specific conditions to produce the super-complexed micronutrient
- Super-complexing process neutralizes the charged ions (cations and anions) to enhance nutrient uptake
Advantages of Polyaldocarbosate Super-Complexes:
- Plant derived – safe and will not burn the foliage or root hairs
- Easily absorbed and translocated throughout the plant
- Very stable chemical bond – suitable for foliar and soil applications
- Neutral pH and is stable throughout a wide pH range
- Efficiency is 5-7x that of salts¹
