NitraMar® Zinc Nitrate Solution
Liquid zinc nitrate fertilizer
NitraMar® Zinc Nitrate Solution may be applied pre-plant as a starter, side-dressed, fertigated, top-dressed or banded to the soil. It can also be applied as a foliar spray and is compatible with most water sprays, pesticides and liquid fertilizers except for phosphate-containing fertilizers.
Nitrogen is the main plant protein component and is needed in large quantities for healthy plant growth. Nitrogen deficiency can lead to root disease, reduced photosynthesis, stunted plants and reduced crop yield, while sufficient nitrogen can increase tolerance to early-season soil diseases.
Zinc helps facilitate enzyme function for protein synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism in the plant. It is essential for chloroplast formation and auxin metabolism. Auxins are plant hormones that help regulate growth and development, including cell division and flower initiation. Low zinc levels in the soil can increase vulnerability to root diseases such as phytophthora.
