Product Name: Micro Nutrients Mixture
Micronutrients are those essential elements which are required by plants in very small amounts, besides promoting plant metabolic activities and growth of the plants, they play a major role in improving quality, size, colour, taste, input use efficiency of fertilizers, water use, disease resistance etc.
A lesser-understood phenomenon is their role in determining quality and post-harvest life of the harvested produce. As these nutrients are costly and required in very small amounts normally a fertilizer dealer does not stock them like other bulk fertilizers and hence, farmers find it very difficult to correct micronutrient deficiencies. “In order to find a solution to this serious problem, our scientists have developed crop/soil specific micronutrient mixtures for foliar application in black pepper, cardamom, ginger, and turmeric crops which guarantees 15 to 25 percent increase in yield and quality.
It’s kind of a mixture of more than one micro nutrients, which is state specific, crop specific. We are having different Grades with us:
