Trace elements

In order to grow in a healthy way, every plant needs nutrition. The necessary nutrients, which are different for each crop, can be obtained from organic and artificial fertilizers. Depending on the needs of the plants, fertilizers are divided into main and trace elements. Main elements are the fertilizers of which the plant needs the most. Trace elements are less needed, but certainly not less important for the proper functioning of the plants.  

Nutrition of the plant

Plants need nutrients to experience constant and healthy growth. This requires an interplay of different nutrients, which consists of both main elements and trace elements. 
The main elements are the most needed nutrients. The trace elements are less needed by the plant, but are still essential for the plant. 


Trace elements

Trace elements can be divided into the following nutrients: boron (B), molybdenum (Mo), manganese (Mn), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and iron (Fe). 
These elements can be found in various fertilizers. Which fertilizer you can best use to get a good supply of these nutrients to your plant depends on your fertilization schedule.


Chelated trace elements

Some trace elements can be better administered to the plant in a chelated form. The chelating of a nutrient ensures that it remains more stable in the fertilizer solution, so that it remains more absorbable for the plant. 
For example, especially for the element iron, it is essential to be administered in the form of an iron chelate.
