MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL contains 75 g Fe per liter (6% Fe). Iron is fully chelated by DTPA.

Iron in the form of chelate is rapidly absorbed, transported, and assimilated by plants. 

 

MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL is intended for use in fertigation in inert, organic substrates, and in the ground. It may be also used for foliar nutrition or soil fertilization (soil spraying/watering).

MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL may be also used as a component of liquid fertilizer mixes or as a source of iron for other chemicals.

 

Iron supplied to plants in MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL is:

  • Efficiently and quickly taken up by plants in slightly alkaline environment (pH range up to 8);
  • Safe for plants in all treatment techniques (according to the recommended doses);
  • Stable in multicomponent solutions.

 Physical and chemical properties of MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL chelate solutions include:

  • The product is stable in the pH range of 2–8;
  • EC in deionized water: 0.1 % solution – 0.23 mS/cm;
  • pH in deionized water: 0.1 % solution – 7.2.

MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL may be used in different fertilization techniques, including fertigation, soil spraying, soil watering, scattering after mixing with other fertilizers and foliar sprays.

 

  1. FERTIGATION (fertilizing combined with watering) of crops in inert or organic substrates, in the ground
    Specific recommendations (medium composition and the frequency of application) shall take into account the nutritional requirements of plants and agronomic and climatic conditions of cultivation (including the type of substrate).
    The calculations shall take into account the content of iron (Fe) in other fertilizers used to prepare the medium and in water used to prepare the medium.
  • Fertigation in inert substrates and coconut substrate, and hydroponic cultivation (medium supplied continuously or repeatedly during the day).
    Most frequently recommended iron (Fe) content in a ready to use medium is 1–3 mg Fe / L (i.e. 10–40 ml of MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL in 1,000 L). When preparing concentrated solutions, the dose rate of MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL should be increased accordingly.
  • Fertigation in organic substrates and in the ground (medium supplied periodically - repeatedly during the vegetation period).
    When using MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL with other fertilizers in a ready to use medium, do not exceed a total concentration of 0.2% of all ingredients (i.e. 2 L and/or kg in 1,000 L of medium).

Recommended amount of MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL in the whole growing season (in divided doses max. 2 l/ha in one cycle):

  • Pome and stone fruit trees, nuts, citrus, mango, avocado, olive trees, banana trees, palm trees, coffee, pineapple: 7–30 l/ha
  • Grapevine: 6–22 l/ha
  • Fruit shrubs, strawberry, vegetables, ornamental plants: 6–30 l/ha

 

  1. SOIL SPRAYING, SOIL WATERING, SCATTERING after mixing with other soil fertilizers
    Spray the soil with an aqueous solution of chelate before sowing or seedlings planting, or use in combination with other soil fertilizers. For fruit trees (e.g. pear tree) spray the soil after start of vegetation or in other recommended period. Spray (large volume spray) the soil on cloudy and humid days or when it rains.

Recommended amount of MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL in the whole growing season:

  • Pome and stone fruit trees, nuts, citrus, mango, avocado, olive trees, banana trees, palm trees, coffee, pineapple: 7–30 l/ha
  • Grapevine: 15–30 l/ha
  • Fruit shrubs, strawberry, vegetables, ornamental plants: 6–30 l/ha

 

  1. FOLIAR SPRAYS
    MIKROCHELAT Fe-6 SL is intended for foliar application in the form of an aqueous solution.
    Single dose rate 0.3–1.5 l/ha. Adapt the concentration and amount of liquid used to the requirements of individual plant species and the spraying technique. During treatment, avoid large amounts of sunlight, high temperatures and wind causing drops to drift.
    At low air humidity avoid using a solution at a concentration greater than 0.1% (1 kg of fertilizer/1,000 L of water).
