Biota Zinc

Biota Zinc is a concentrated single zinc 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 Zinc is especially important for emerging crops. It provides a healthy stimulation of root growth (auxins).

In soils with a high pH and a high lime content, there is often not enough zinc available. Zinc uptake is also disrupted in an acidic soil with an above-average amount of organic matter.
Zinc ensures that the resistance to, among other things, scab is increased.
Apply to perennial crops after harvest, but before leaf discoloration. Apply to annual plants during the vegetative phase.
