  21. 21. When Zinc is applied in soil, the following reaction may occur 2+ 3- -1 Zn + P2O5 = Zn3(P2O5)2 Zinc cation Phosphate Zinc Phosphate Precipitate (unavailable to plant) Diagram below shows the ability of all chelates to resist chemical tie-up in the soil or fertilizer spray tank -- - + +- - Zn + - - + - - Zn Zn P2O5- - + - - + - -Chelating Zinc Chelated Zinc Chelate and Phosphate Agent cation Zinc do not tie up www.satyajitchemicals.com 20

  24. 24. Avoids Avoids Avoids interference blocking precipitation with P ( inmetal to soil of metal NPK) or in soil www.satyajitchemicals.com 23
  25. 25. Sulphates Chelates www.satyajitchemicals.com 24
  26. 26. Soil application Foliar applicationto avoid blocking metal to Chelates promote transport soil in leaves after absorption to avoid precipitation of Chelates avoids metal metal precipitation in hard water can be mixed with almost allto avoid interference with P pesticides except Cu products www.satyajitchemicals.com 25

  31. 31. What should I do ? www.satyajitchemicals.com 30
  32. 32. • Set realistic yield goals• Use a 3 to 5 year improvement program• Aim for annual increases of 10 to 20%• Improve weakest practice• Upgrade other management inputs• Use balanced fertilization www.satyajitchemicals.com 31

  34. 34. Using MicroNutrients below Optimumlevel, WILL :• Reduce yields per unit area• Mine away soil nutrients• Reduce crop resistance to drought, disease, insect, and other stresses• Reduce farmer profits, thereby negatively affecting local economies www.satyajitchemicals.com 33
  35. 35. Some Management Practices that cost Little or Nothing extra• Timeliness • Tillage• Variety, hybrid • Planting date• Row width • Seed drop• Fertilizer placement • Record keeping• Scouting • Plant population www.satyajitchemicals.com 34
