Effects of foliar nutrition

Nutritive elements applied in this way act quickly, reaching the chloroplasts where it starts the process of photosynthesis, and the percentage of utilization of nutrient supply is high.
Using foliar nutrient avoids the antagonism between the elements in the soil, the fixation of some of the elements, as well as mutual connecting of mineral elements in compounds unavailable to plants.
The ability of the plant to absorb water and nutrients through the leaf, today in modern agricultural production is used as a regular agricultural measure for plant nutrition.
Foliar nutrient shouldn’t be a basic for plant nutrition, but this nutrition should be seen as an additional food or measure that enables rapid and effective action, to correct the acute shortage of certain food items.
In practice because of reducing of costs, foliar fertilizers are combined with protection materials (except fungicide which in its composition contains copper or aluminum), in same time allowing better absorption by plants, and emphasized better action on them.
The advantage of foliar nutrient is that it can be done more times during the growing period, so it can act on the general condition of the plant, it can increase the yield, improve the quality of fruits and increase resistance to disease and pests.
With foliar nutrient can be compensate the difficult transmitted elements in plants (calcium and boron), which are particularly important for the strength of the cell wall and fertilization and plant often shows their lack in summer period.
Foliar nutrient together with feeding through the root, gives positive results in the growth and development of the plants and plant nutrition significantly reduce the cost of pesticide use.
