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.

Pure fertilizer

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

is

0-42-47+2.8% Fe
