Manganese, Iron, and Availability

Nutrient Technologies Tech-Flo Soil pH Chart and nutrient availability

Soil pH, soil temperatures, growth stage, and soil and tissue samples help growers determine the best application methods for essential micronutrients. Manganese – Mn Essential in photosynthesis Activates many other enzyme reactions: nitrogen metabolism: regulates nitrite respiration of sugars Assists iron(Fe) in building the chlorophyll molecule =healthy, dark green leaves Involved in…

Molybdenum and Nitrogen Management

Citrus Growth Nutrient technologies

As growers focus on achieving goals of Nitrogen Management Plans, they are looking carefully at how plants best utilize Nitrogen.  Molybdenum may be as essential to effective Nitrogen Management as it is to Nitrogen utilization in plants. Molybdenum is an essential part of the nitrate reductase enzyme necessary to reduce nitrate nitrogen to the amino form, resulting in more effective plant utilization of nitrogen.  What growers notice, is that they can apply less nitrogen and get better results when they…

The Foliar Feeding Science of TECH-FLO

foliar nutrients tech flo

Forget what you know about soil science. Foliar feeding is a wholly different way of getting plants the nutrients they need to thrive. In the 1950’s Tukey and Wittwer used radioisotopes to confirm that nutrients applied to the foliage are absorbed and transported to other plant parts.  They even demonstrated that there are differences in speed of uptake and transport of various nutrients.  This was exciting, because growers and researchers had observed that plants responded to nutrient sprays applied to leaves…
