S- Manganese (Mn-EDTA):
S-Manganese is a special organic compound in which Manganese (Mn) ions remains bound or clawed (Ligand). This prevents the conversion of Mn ion into insoluble compounds when it comes in contact with other compounds in soil or in the plant.
Manganese (Mn) is an important plant micronutrient and is required by plants in the second greatest quantity compared to iron. Like any other element, it can have a limiting factor on plant growth if it is deficient or toxic in plant tissue.
Function: Manganese is used in plants as a major contributor to various biological systems including photosynthesis, respiration, and nitrogen assimilation. Manganese is also involved in pollen germination, pollen tube growth, root cell elongation and resistance to root pathogens.
Chemical Composition: Manganese (as Mn in the form of Mn-EDTA), % by weight min. 13.0, P¬H :6.0- 6.5
Application and Recommendations:
- Crops: Filed crops, Fruit crops, vegetables, Cotton, Sugarcane, etc
- Foliar Application: Dissolve 100gms of S- Manganese in 100lts of Water and spray over one acre of standing crop.
- Fertigation: 500gms per acre through irrigation water along with any Water soluble fertilizers.
- Soil application: 500gms of S-Manganese mix in any carrier material or any other fertilizers and apply for one acre.
