Due to its use in chlorophyll formation and photosynthesis, Iron (Fe) is often applied to enhance greening without increasing plant growth.
Some Features Include:
- It is Water Soluble Powder
- Essential for chlorophyll production
- Promotes energy transfers
- Required in photosynthesis
- Part of the enzyme system needed for plant respiration
- Required for the formation of some proteins
- Promotes healthy growth in plants
