MANGANESE SULFATE 32% (Mn)
Manganese is one of eight essential plant micronutrients. It is needed in only small quantities by plants, but like other micronutrients, Mn is ultimately as critical to plant growth as are the major nutrients.
Plant roots release exudates such as low molecular weight organic acids that aid in Mn uptake from the soil. Within plants, Mn functions mostly as an activator in enzyme systems, but it is also a constituent of certain enzymes. It is essential to photosynthesis reactions and is involved in the evolution of oxygen in photosynthesis. The synthesis of lignin, which adds strength and stiffness to cell walls, is dependent on Mn. Manganese is also essential for root growth.
Soil and plant tissue tests are recommended to determine a Manganese deficiency in soils.
- Use only on the basis of soil and or tissue analysis to correct documented deficiency specific to the type of crop.
- Manganese Sulfate can be applied to soil as a drench.
- Manganese (Mn): 32%
