Foliar nutrition has proven to be an efficient way to cure nutritional deficiencies in plants and boost their development at specific physiological stages. In this method of plant fertilization the solution is sprayed directly on the leaves of the plants. Foliar nutrition with foliar fertilizers can provide the nutrients required for normal crop development in cases where the absorption of nutrients by the root system has been altered.
It is well known that certain stages of plant development are of the greatest importance in determining the final yield, foliar nutrition with fully water-soluble fertilizers significantly increases yields and improves their quality. Since the absorption of nutrients through the foliage is considerably faster than through the roots, foliar application is also the method of choice when correction of nutritional deficiencies is needed.
