Solufeed launches iron deficiency plant remedy at Four Oaks

UK based fertiliser and micronutrient manufacturer Solufeed has launched "Solufeed Rapid" a liquid chelate formulation that it says will quickly correct iron deficiency.


The product is recommended for use in high value and other crops where the deficiency can cause serious economic losses.

Of all the micronutrient disorders, iron deficiency is particularly noticeable in protected ornamentals such as flowering pot plants, poinsettia, pansy and primula.

Lack of iron causes classical symptoms of interveinal yellowing of the leaf (chlorosis). This in turn spoils appearance, reduces crop value and profitability.  

Marketing manager Bob Greensmith said: "With Solufeed Rapid growers have a fast acting remedial product for emergency application as soon as the first symptoms appear.

He added: "It is also suitable as a high performance iron source in hydroponics and fertigation systems where low pH stock tanks are employed. This is a product that will bring peace of mind to growers of high value plants."

Solufeed Rapid is available in 1-litre polythene bottles and 20 litre polythene drums.
