A concentrated blend of chelated trace minerals, micro-essential elements and organic buffers
In conjunction with the elements primary and secondary, trace and micro-elements are essential food for a balanced growth and harmonious plant. Some of these particles are required in quantities so small what are not usually included in the majority of the formulas. Yet all laboratory tests have demonstrated a marked improvement in the health of the plants and their ability to withstand the attacks of insects when these elements are added. An element chelate is released only when it begins to fail in the nutrient solution. This is why chelates maintain the stability of the solution, and protect the plant from any harmful accumulation. When the plants grow rapidly, they absorb large quantities of mineral salts in the solution and destabilise its pH. More growth is rapid, the more the balance is delicate. This is why it is essential to have buffer of good quality to help stabilize the pH. These buffers are also used to control the level of calcium in the solution, a decisive advantage in hard water. Chelates are a source of trace elements allowed for use in organic agriculture. Trace Spectrum is a necessary complement to all fertilisers, whether they are liquid or powder. Except for the Flora-Series and One Hand, which already contain all the elements. It is used as an additive to the nutrient solution in hydroponic, soil, and foliar spray.
