S-Chelate Cultiv-8 has a unique chelate chemistry that transports the cations of these important elements into the plant with remarkable effectiveness.
S-Chelate Cultiv-8 is bioavailable in a much broader-than-normal range of pH and soil conditions such as in contact with clay, carbonates, phosphates, organic matter and other elements in the soil that seek to tie up and make secondary elements and micronutrients insoluble.
This wide pH tolerance is equally useful in controlled growing systems like horticultural drip fertigation polytunnel systems where media like coconut coir can tie up micronutrients like iron and copper and hydroponic systems where tolerance to chemicals like hydrogen peroxide
is needed which may be used to prevent pathogens from developing in this highly intensive growing environment.
Chelation is defined as the capacity to hold the metal ion in solution above the precipitation point of the non-chelated ion and the Level of Chelation measurement is your assurance of the performance of our product which will stand up to independent verification.
This is the backbone of the performance of this technology resulting in markedly lower application rates than for non-chelated products because so much more of the metal ion will stay in solution and reach the plant tissues as has been shown convincingly by yield and quality improvements alongside parallel tissue analysis.
