The importance of foliar fertilizer in plants

plants and foliar fertilizer

We have all had contact (directly or indirectly) with plants. We know that there is a endless species all over the world, as well as countless properties, which can be expressed in size, color, life span, nutritional and medicinal contributions, fruits…etc. Likewise, there are many homes in which today we can contemplate varieties of plants.

These can be used to make use of your medicinal contributions or simply to decorate a place in your home, but at the end of the day, it can be difficult to find an individual who has not had any contact with some kind of plant.

What is foliar fertilizer?

In general culture, we know that plants need water to live in a full way and that otherwise, the little consumption – or the NO consumption – of water can cause death.

In addition to water, it may be necessary sun exposure or in any case, at certain temperatures. But to all these, many may come to know that the plants receive the so-called fertilizer very wellwhich we define as the synthesis of a nutrient series to which plants are exposed.

It offers plants a benefit set that allows them to develop in a more effective, precise and efficient way.

This article will talk about compost, but not exactly the kind of compost that we recently defined. We will refer to this as the foliar fertilizera series of nutrients that, like classic fertilizer, is intended to give rise to the effective and precise plant development.

It will explain a little about this element, some of its functions, its applications, the types of foliar fertilizers that exist.

First, the foliar fertilizer it is like any composta series of nutritional contributions, of vegetable origin, composed of multiple elements that in some way contribute to the development, protection and life of plants.

Particularly, foliar fertilizer varies in intensity compared to classic fertilizeras the use is more of a complementary application, that is, the foliar fertilizer can be applied in conjunction with the soil fertilizer, since the foliar fertilizer works as a complement that aims to increase the level of nutrition that is offered to the plant and is that the foliar fertilizer contains a series of so-called micronutrients that function as a contribution to the plant.

Among the micronutrients we can mention: Magnesium, Zinc, Copper and Iron.

We have already talked about its function and that is that foliar fertilizer works as a supplement to soil fertilizer.

Mainly, foliar fertilizer is used in order to increase the proportion of nutrients that can be provided to the plant, in such a way that it has all the nutrients it needs and a little more.

Likewise, foliar fertilizer is taken into consideration to offer the plant a wide repertoire of nutrientswhich could be very necessary in times of hostile climates. The idea is to provide the plant with a relevant reserve, in such a way that it can access them without major problem, offering a comprehensive supply.

Its application is very simple and is that as its name indicates (foliar fertilizer) this set of nutrients must be synthesized under a liquid solution, in such a way that it is sprinkled on the leaves of the plants, which is why this fertilizer meets the foliar definition.

An interesting fact for the reader is that foliar fertilizer arises from the need to offer the plant the nutrients that should be found in the airbut that for ecological reasons, it is very difficult to find this kind of climates.

In this sense, the foliar fertilizer is born motivated to guarantee the plant all the nutrients it needs.

Among the types of foliar fertilizers that exist, we have the following:

Compost composed of mineral salts: Made up largely of sulfates.

Chelated fertilizer: They are organic solutions, which can be combined with other compounds to be treated on fertilization.
