Biota Manga

Biota Manga is a concentrated single manganese fertiliser, based on lignosulphonic acid and part of our liquid organic single fertilizer line. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are 100% present in solution and can therefore be taken up directly by the plant. The product is fully made from plant-based materials and certified for use in organic agri- and horticulture. The ingredients are partly sourced from agricultural waste. Due to the natural origin the nutrient content may vary.

Biota Manga improves the photosynthesis of the crops. It manages enzymes which are responsible for green leaves. A shortage of manganese in the soil causes a pale green discolouration and speckled sports on the plant. Use Biota Manganese preventative for optimal growth and curative when manganese deficiency occurs in the crop. Manganese creates strong cellular walls. Biota Manganese therefore increases resistance against fungal diseases.

The absorption of manganese is highly dependent on a correct pH value of the soil. Manganese has an antagonistic effect on iron.
