plant ferts and what they are good for.

  • Potassium - Protein synthesis, water and charge balance, enzyme activation.
  • Boron - Chlorophyll production, flowering, root growth, cell function.
  • Carbon - Required for all organic compounds.
  • Calcium - Cell wall stability and permeability, enz...yme activation, cell response to stimuli.
  • Chlorine - Water and charge balance, photosynthesis.
  • Copper - Component of enzymes utilized in redox reactions that take place during photosynthesis.
  • Iron - Required for photosynthesis, component of enzymes utilized in redox reactions.
  • Magnesium - Component of chlorophyll, enzyme activation.
  • Manganese - Formation of amino acids, enzyme activation.
  • Molybdenum and Cobalt - Required for nitrate reduction.
  • Nickel - Enzyme activation, processing of nitrogenous material.
  • Sulfur - Component of proteins and the coenzymes that are involved with nutrient utilization and growth.
  • Zinc - Chlorophyll production, enzyme activation.
  • Note that Oxygen and Hydrogen are also required, but are available at all times through water
