Chelated trace elements for horticulture

Chelates, or chelated trace elements, are organic elements that the element (e.g. manganese, copper, and iron) holds like a claw. In this way, the element remains better available to the plant when it is dissolved in the fertilizer solution. Chelates should be used to prevent deficiency symptoms in plants. A chelated trace element is in contrast to a sulphate more mobile in the plant resulting in a fast and distributed absorption of the trace element. In winter, there is less evaporation, which makes elements more difficult to move. Our specialists therefore advice you to use chelated trace elements in the winter. Our specialists wrote an article about the main differences between chelates and sulphates.

Chelated iron

The administration of iron to a crop is always done by means of a chelate, chelated iron. This is because iron precipitates easily when it comes into contact with other elements in the fertilizer solution. Therefore, iron-containing foods should always be administered in chelated form to prevent deficiency symptoms, such a chlorosys, in the plants. Our specialists wrote an article about how iron chelates work. You can choose from EDTA, DTPA or EDDHA iron chelated. Deping on the pH value of the rooting enviroment you can choose a chelate. All these chelates have their own stability at a certain pH value.

Buying chelated trace elements

The range of chelated trace elements at Royal Brinkman varies. For example, various nutrients such as manganese, copper and iron can be purchased in chelated form.
