Enhanced UV stability
Multiple trials have proven that micronutri Fe breaks down
much less in the presence of UV disinfection while ensuring
better transmission than organic chelates. That means more
effective UV disinfection and less iron is lost.
pH range and reversibility
Just like a DTPA, micronutri Fe can make iron available up
to pH 7. At higher pH values, corrections must be made to
prevent difficulties with the other nutrients.
When the pH is corrected (e.g. by adding ammonium, NH4)
to bring it back to 5.8, then the iron provided by micronutri
Fe will once again be available to the plant. This is not true
with organic chelates, where the iron is lost.
Easy to use in a separate C tank
Using a separate dosing tank, micronutri Fe can be easily
and correctly dosed in the mixing tank. In other words, no
pH correction is needed in the fertilizer tanks and mistakes
can be avoided. In addition, there will be no precipitation
or contamination in the tanks. Currently, only micronutri Fe
may go in the separate tank; in the future, other elements
may be added.
Micronutri Fe is a pure fertilizer; all elements are taken up
by the plant. It is a fully biodegradable, 100% water-soluble
fertilizer and, like the entire Hortipray® range, contains
virtually no sodium.
In addition to iron, micronutri Fe also contains phosphate
and potassium, 2 of the 3 main elements. Its NPK formula
