Salts vs. Chelates

Many foliar fertilizers on the market are inefficient at being taken up by the leaves for a number of reasons. Foliar fertilizers must be soluble in order to readily move through the cuticle. Additionally, many fertilizers on the market (such as humates and lignosulfonates) are restricted from uptake via the polar pores due to their…

How are nutrients taken up by the crop?

Uptake of foliar-applied nutrients. The cuticle provides plants a layer of protection surrounding their stems, leaves, fruits and flowers, which can be compared, in many ways, to our skin. The function of this cuticle is to control the flow of gases in and out of the plant and to maintain optimal levels of transpiration (the…

Factors influencing the uptake of foliar feeds

Temperature Foliar sprays dry quickly when applied at high temperatures, reducing absorption of the nutrients in solution. Light High light intensities can improve foliar uptake. Humidity High humidity favours nutrient uptake through the leaves in two ways; by decreasing the rate of drying of the applied nutrient solutions, and by causing the cuticle to absorb…
