Every summer resident knows that plants need nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium for full development. These are the three main macronutrients, the deficiency of which significantly affects the appearance and yield of plants, and in advanced cases can lead to their death. However, not everyone understands the importance of other macro- and micronutrients for plant health. And they are important not only by themselves, but also for the effective assimilation of the same nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. In this article, we will tell you what is unique about the "Micronutrient Fertilizer Supplement" from the Buisk Fertilizer Plant, and why every gardener / gardener should have it at hand.
Question: why use the fertilizer "Microelement fertilizer additive" in the garden?
This question will be answered by Dmitry Aleksandrovich Belozerov, head of the agrochemical service of Buisk Chemical Plant OJSC.
Answer: many gardeners and gardeners use in their practice such well-known fertilizers as ammonium nitrate and carbamide, superphosphate and potassium sulfate, preferring to provide plants with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and ignore during the main introduction such nutrients necessary for plants as magnesium, calcium, sulfur, trace elements - iron, zinc, copper, manganese, boron, molybdenum, etc.
Of course, you can compensate for them with root and foliar fertilizing during the growing season. This is a good way and a whole series of water-soluble fertilizers has been developed for it - magnesium sulfate and nitrate, calcium nitrate, chelated microelements and their complex "Aquamix". But due to various objective reasons, it is not always possible to carry out such fertilizing on time.
Do not forget that the main plant nutrition is obtained from the soil through the root system. And, if in the spring we did not provide the plant with adequate nutrition for the season in the hope of supplementing it in the process, then we may well not fulfill our plan.
Magnesium is an important element in the plant fertilization system. Photosynthesis is not possible without magnesium, and this is the main physiological process in a plant. With a lack of this element, magnesium chlorosis is possible and, as a result, plant underdevelopment, loss of potential yield or decorativeness.
Calcium forms the "bone" structure of plants, cell walls, conducting tissues and much more is synthesized with its participation. It is practically impossible to compensate for the lack of calcium in full through foliar feeding. It is not transported from the leaves to the trunk and roots. It is not reutilized, that is, it does not move from dying tissues (leaves) to vegetative ones, as can happen with other elements. To provide the plant with calcium, it is necessary to add calcium-containing fertilizer to the soil in dry form or in the form of a solution, for example, calcium nitrate.
Sulfur is a component of proteins and vitamins. Cruciferous plants are especially susceptible to sulfur deficiency. The signs of a lack of this element are similar to nitrogen starvation, but the pale yellow leaves do not fall off the plants.
Trace elements do not carry the main nutrient load for plants, but they control practically all processes in plants. So a lack of manganese can block the absorption of nitrogen from the soil and visually it will look exactly like nitrogen starvation. Insufficient boron nutrition can lead to blocking of calcium absorption and, as a consequence, inadequate formation of plant organs and a decrease in the number of ovaries and total yield, etc.
In general, trace elements are involved in the synthesis of various complex organic compounds - amino acids, fats, proteins and carbohydrates. With insufficient supply of plants with microelements, the fruits are not fully formed and the quality (taste) qualities will also be low.
Thus, the "Micronutrient Fertilizer Additive" solves the important problem of providing adequate nutrition for various vegetable and ornamental crops, if it is used when digging the soil in spring alone or in conjunction with any other soil fertilizers - be it ammonium nitrate or superphosphate, potassium magnesium or ammophos.
If you create a nutrient mixture from different mineral soil fertilizers, including a mixture according to Meatlider, then the "Microelement additive" will suit perfectly as one of the components.
The fertilizer is granular, therefore it is easily mixed with other granular agrochemicals, during transportation or storage it will not cause stratification of the mixture, and this is important for the even distribution of different components in the soil in the root zone.
The microelement additive does not deteriorate during long-term storage. Not afraid of frost. The main thing is that the room is dry and water does not get on the fertilizer during storage.
