Chelated Copper EDTA fertilizer is a specialized nutrient formulation designed to address copper deficiency in plants. Copper is an essential micronutrient vital for various physiological processes within plants, including photosynthesis, enzyme activation, and overall growth regulation. However, it's often found deficient in many soils, leading to stunted growth, reduced yields, and poor overall plant health.

This fertilizer contains Copper in a chelated form, specifically bound to Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). Chelation is a process that enhances the availability and absorption of micronutrients by plants. By chelating Copper with EDTA, it becomes more stable and soluble in soil solutions, preventing precipitation and ensuring efficient uptake by plant roots.

The chelation process also protects Copper from interactions with other soil components, such as phosphate and carbonate ions, which could render it unavailable to plants. This ensures that plants receive an adequate supply of Copper over an extended period, promoting healthy growth and development.

Chelated Copper EDTA fertilizer is typically applied through soil drenching, foliar spraying, or fertigation, depending on the specific requirements of the crop and the severity of the Copper deficiency. Regular application of this fertilizer helps maintain optimal Copper levels in the plant, leading to improved nutrient uptake, enhanced resistance to stress factors, and ultimately higher yields and better quality produce.

Overall, Chelated Copper EDTA fertilizer serves as a crucial tool in modern agriculture for addressing Copper deficiency and ensuring the robust growth and productivity of crops.

Key Features:

Enhanced Stability: The chelation of Copper with EDTA ensures stability in various soil conditions, preventing precipitation and ensuring long-term availability to plants.
Improved Solubility: The chelation process enhances Copper's solubility in soil solutions, facilitating efficient uptake by plant roots and preventing leaching.
Optimal Nutrient Uptake: By providing a readily available form of Copper, this fertilizer promotes optimal nutrient uptake by plants, supporting essential physiological processes such as enzyme activation and photosynthesis.
Versatile Application Methods: Chelated Copper EDTA fertilizer can be applied through multiple methods, including soil drenching, foliar spraying, fertigation, and hydroponics, offering flexibility to suit different crop requirements and management practices.
Targeted Nutrient Delivery: The chelation process protects Copper from interactions with other soil components, ensuring targeted delivery to plant roots and minimizing nutrient wastage.
Stress Resistance: Adequate Copper levels supported by this fertilizer enhance plants' resilience to environmental stressors such as drought, disease, and nutrient imbalances, leading to healthier, more vigorous crops.
Improved Yield and Quality: Regular application of Chelated Copper EDTA fertilizer promotes robust growth, higher yields, and better quality produce by addressing Copper deficiency and optimizing plant health.

Application Rate:

Soil Application Recommendations:

Vegetable Crops: including beans, celery, cucumbers, lettuce, melons, onions, peas, peppers, potatoes, sweet corn, tomatoes: 2 - 4 lbs. per acre

Field Crops: including alfalfa, corn, dry beans, peas, forage grasses, rice, safflower, sorghum, sugar beets, sugarcane: 2 – 4 lbs. per acre

Tree and Vine Crops: including almond, apple, apricot, avocado, berry, cherry, citrus, grape, mango, olive, pear, peach, pistachio, plum, walnut:  2 - 5 lbs. per acre or 1/2 - 2 oz. per inch of tree diameter

Ornamental Shrubs and Trees: including azaleas, gardenias, junipers, pines, roses: 1 Tbsp. for small shrubs and up to 1 Tbsp. per inch of tree diameter for large trees and shrubs

Turf: 1/2 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. or 2 lbs. per acre

Note: The rates given above are based on broadcast application. If broadcast rates are used for spot or banded applications, phytotoxicity may result.

Foliar Application Recommendations:

Trees (Citrus): Apply 1 - 2 lbs. per 100 gallons of cover spray any time except during bloom.

Trees & Vine Crops (Excluding Citrus Trees): Apply 1 - 2 lb. per acre in sufficient spray volume for thorough coverage (25-gallon minimum) at dormant/delayed dormant before bloom, then after full bloom at 2 to 3-week intervals as needed.

Vegetable & Field Crops: Apply 1/3 to 1-1/3 lb. per acre in sufficient spray volume for thorough coverage (25-gallon minimum)

Turf: Apply 1 tbsp per 1,000 sq. ft. in sufficient spray volume for thorough coverage. Note: For gulf turf apply 1 tsp per 1,000 sq.ft.
