Chelated Micronutrients


Plant nutrients are commonly classified as either macronutrients or micronutrients, depending on the amounts required by plants. Macronutrients such as Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K) are well understood by the agricultural community but micronutrients such as Iron (Fe), Zinc (Zn), and Copper (Cu) have largely been ignored until recently.

Micronutrients enable the following vital functions in crops and plants:

  • Photosynthesis
  • Development of carbohydrates and proteins
  • Cell division and growth
  • Reproduction
  • Defense against environmental stressors including diseases
  • Efficient utilization of primary and secondary macronutrients

Researchers and growers are now realizing the power of delivering essential metal to plants, even at relatively small dosages. This industry shift comes at a time when framers and growers are being asked to do more with less.

That is where we come in. Solugen’s line of chelated micronutrients, powered by BioChelate™, can help deliver the elements your plants and crops need in soil, foliar, and hydroponic applications to help grow your land and your bottom line.

Customer Challenges and Pain Points

Listed below are just a few of the symptoms plants and crops exhibit when experiencing micronutrient deficiencies:

  • Yellowing or discolored leaves
  • Deformation and size reduction of leaves and stems
  • Inadequate flowering
  • Flower abortion
  • Susceptibility to diseases and other environmental stressors
  • Unsatisfactory fruit and grain set

All these symptoms hinder crop yield, growth, and quality, resulting in a severe financial burden for growers.
