Preventing micro-nutrient deficiencies in your plants
From the vegetative to the flowering stages, your plants explode with growth. That
requires a lot of nutrients and can tax the plant's delivery system.
As a result minerals such as iron, zinc and copper may have a hard time reaching all areas, particularly in the upper portions. This can slow down growth and eventually affect the quality of your flowers.
To increase the mobility of elements throughout your entire plant, use products containing fulvic and humic acids. They will help keep your delivery system strong and enhance the quality of your flowers during the final stages of growth.
If your crop experiences a trace element deficiency and you're confident you've diagnosed the problem accurately, a foliar spray will help green-up your plants. You can also use a solution containing a full spectrum of trace elements.
