Organic Iron 5% is a new ORGANIC CHELATE made from a sugar based Glucoheptonate chelating agent. Organic Iron 5% is formulated for year round application on all varieties of turf grasses. It can be used in early spring for soil injection of trees and ornamentals. Organic Iron 5% is excellent as a foliar spray on all plant materials that are showing iron deficiencies. These are naturally fermented sugar acids that form soluble molecules with mineral elements. Organic Iron 5% is a very stable chelate and is a perfect choice for higher pH soils where minor elements often become unavailable to the plant. In this soil condition, Organic Iron 5% will remain available longer than other types of chelates. Plants can become deficient in iron elements because of pH imbalances. Organic Iron 5% can prevent compound defi ciencies in turf and many plant materials. University studies indi cate that glucoheptonates are ideal for foliar applications and are more efficient than EDTA chelates in high pH soils.
