Iron chelate DTPA Fe 7% (CAS 85959-68-8)
Iron chelate DTPA Fe 7% is an iron chelate, which can be used to ensure the intake of the trace element iron. Iron is essential to the crop, since it gives the crop the possibility to develop chloroplasts. These presence of the chloroplasts is crucial, because they are needed in the process of photosynthesis. In addition, iron serves as a nutrient that lets the growth points in the root develop properly.
Thanks to the DTPA chelate, to which he iron is bound, the nutrient remains available to the crop when it reaches the roots or when it is put in the fertilizer solution. With the help of iron chelates, symptoms of deficiency can be prevented, contributing to an optimal growth of the plant.
