Iron


Nutriment IRON [Ferrous Sulphate (FeSO4.7H2O)] contains 19% Iron and 10.5% Sulphur.

IRON is a central component of electron chains and co-factor of many vital enzymes. In plants, iron is also required for photosynthesis and chlorophyll synthesis. The availability of iron in soils dictates the distribution of plant species in natural ecosystems and limits yield and nutritional quality of crops.

Iron deficiency in plants is one of the hardest to correct. Insufficient iron uptake causes interveinal chlorosis, retarded growth, and reduced fitness. Sufficient iron levels in food crops are critical to fight iron deficiency-induced anemia, one of the largest nutritional disorders worldwide. Too much iron is, however, toxic to cells. It is mandatory for plants to overcome the often-restricted availability of soil iron by strategies that increase its mobility and restrict its uptake when present in excess. Iron-deficient conditions, plants induce the expression of a set of genes involved in iron uptake and translocation.

Functions/benefits in plants:

  • IRON plays a pivotal role in various cellular processes, including respiration, chlorophyll biosynthasis, photosynthasis and reduction of nitrate and sulphate.
  • IRON involves iron homeostasis, regulating gene expression in response to iron availability.
  • IRON induces resistance to pest and diseases.
  • IRON increases the productive tillers in wheat and paddy.
  • IRON boosts growth rate, dry matter accumulation and increases yields.

Method of application:

Soil application: Apply 10kg of Nutriment IRON per acre at the time of sowing/ transplantation.

Foliar Spray:Dissolve 1kg of Nutriment IRON (Partially Chelated) in 400 liters of water and spray on both surface of the leaves per acre 30 days after germination or transplantation. Repeat the treatment if severe deficiency is observed.
