The Importance of Macro and Micro Nutrients in Plants

Plants require, at least 16 elements for balanced, all-round growth. They are: Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulphur, Potassium, Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Chloride, Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Boron, Copper and Molybdenum.

Apart from the underground roots, plants also absorb nutrients through their aerial parts. This ability can be exploited through the practice of foliar nutrition. This ability can be exploited through the practice of foliar nutrition. While Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen are absorbed by plants directly from air and water, the rest of the macro and micro elements, essential for growth, are supplied either through the soil or sprayed on the leaves. Foliar feeding, as researched, demonstrated and proved by Floris Chemicals, promotes rapid absorption of micronutrients by plants. While many ambient factors govern application of fertilizers through conventional methods, foliar govern application of fertilizers through conventional methods, foliar nutrition is free of such restrictive factors. In fact, foliar nutrition is recommended as the essential practice to compensate for the deficiency of the plants in absorption of nutrients from organic manures and bulky fertilizers, and usage of pesticides.

Direct application of liquid fertilizers(Foliar Nutrients) on the foliage of the plants promotes rapid absorption, even in extreme soil PH conditions and during monsoon. Apart from the usage of sprayer, foliar nutrients can be applied through sprinkler or drip irrigation system. Foliar nutrients can also be mixed with plant-protection (pesticide) sprays, which means saving on labor cost.

Hitha Foliar spray, formulated by Floris Chemicals, has been extensively and intensively tried in a variety of different plants under heterogeneous geographical, soil and weather conditions. It has proved to be uniformly cost-effective and result-oriented in such areas as fruit-bearing trees, agricultural crops, flowering plants, ornamental plants, lawns and so on.

The major benefit, resulting from the usage of Foliar nutrients, such as Hitha Foliar Spray, are faster and healthier growth of plants, bountiful flowering, prevention of stunting due to pesticide application and consequently the desired-result of much higher yield than before.
