MANGANESE BASED FERTILIZERS
In addition to manganese carbonate and manganese nitrate, Prince’s manganese sulfate monohydrate, Tecmangam®, is the most desired manganese fertilizer thanks to its dry and granulated form, water-solubility, and high economic return.
Essential in photosynthesis, the most visual indicators of manganese deficiency are chlorosis which appears on leaves (such as sugar beet or soybean) and can turn to necrosis with white spots on cereal leaves. Plants suffering a lack of manganese can show internode growth problems due to reduced nitrogen metabolism. Manganese is also known to be important in carbon dioxide and nitrogen assimilation.
The main purpose of manganese application is to correct the nutrition of manganese-sensitive crops grown on naturally and permanently manganese-deficient soils which occupy large areas around the world. A wide range of industrial crops are known to be sensitive to manganese deficiency.
