The extreme’s in today’s fert markets Have led to a number of discussions about complexing and chelation, to enhance nutrient uptake and utility. CHELATION>>>satisfy electrical charge of divalent cations...Ex. Mg2+,Cu2+, Co2+, Zn2+,Ni2+,Mn2+,Fe2+. COMPLEXING>>> satisfy electrical charge across all monovalent ions. Ex. NO3-, SO4-, HPO4-,H2PO4-, NH4+ Understanding what the organic molecule being used is, wether it’s fulvic acid, humic acid, amino acids, phenolic compounds etc. and then understanding the mineral ion and how to combine the two that adds stability and plant availability is the “Art” and “science” of agronomy.
