A readily available source of iron and manganese to address deficiency, this liquid fertiliser is formulated to produce rich green turf colour through excess chlorophyll production. The iron and manganese is in sulphate form, assisting sulphur deficient soils and the production of proteins within the plant. Ideal in high pH soils where the relating nutrients are unusable. It also maintains soil pH extremes by lowering pH levels.
Iron is needed for chlorophyll formation, good colour and for resistance to disease. It is a catalyst in the chlorophyll synthesis process, therefore turf grass colour is influenced by the level of iron available to the plant. Iron applications provide a greening response to turf grass, causing the leaf blades to darken and consequently attract and hold in heat. This encourages the turf to actively grow longer into winter periods.
Iron also plays an important roll in the oxidation process. These reactions in the plant result in the release of energy from sugars and starches and the conversion of nitrate to ammonia. Application of high iron fertilisers into spring encourage the plant to function quicker, bringing it out of dormancy earlier.
Manganese is important for nitrogen uptake, activation of enzymes, and photosynthesis. It also plays a part in protecting the plant from disease and adds vigour.
