Biomega Fe EDDHA
Iron deficiency is a condition often found in various cultivations.
The most common application agronomists choose is iron chelated 6% EDDHA, 4,8% ortho-ortho.
While this is a very common application, there are two key questions that few know how to answer:
What is EDDHA?
What does 4,8% ortho-ortho mean?
EDDHA is an organic chelating agent, which comprises from:
- Two phenolic rings
- Two amino groups
- Two carboxyl groups
The chelating agent EDDHA has in comparison with other chelating agents the following advantages:
- Better stabilization of the Iron
- Excellent iron availability and interchangeability
- Easier transport within the plant
- Better function in alkaline soils
EDDHA ortho-orho & ortho-para
The two types of EDDHA iron differ in the layout of the two phenolic rings
In ortho-ortho iron, the chelating agend “binds” iron in a more stable way, since it does not allow water to polarize and thus destabilize the particle.
Biomega’s MicroFert, iron chelated EDDHA 6%, guaranteed 4,8% ortho – ortho offers a high quality solution against iron deficiencies in every cultivation
