    Chelated Trace Elements

    A blend of micronutrients, APFUK’s Chelated Trace Elements is specifically designed for the needs of plants. Similar to CSM+B trace mix. Plants take up a number of different elements as food. Some are taken up in much larger quantities than others. Those that are taken up in the largest quantities are called macronutrients. These are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). Finally, there are trace elements (also called micronutrients). These are required in small quantities by the plant, but they are still essential for plant health and production. The trace elements are Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo) and Zinc (Zn) and without them, plants will exhibit a variety of deficiency symptoms.
