Deficiency

Where is the risk of deficiency highest?
  • Sandy soils 
  • Low organic matter soils
  • High pH
  • Dry conditions
  • Soils with excessive levels of calcium
Testing

A Broad Spectrum (BS) soil analysis can help determine the quantity of iron which is likely to be available for crop uptake and can be used to tailor fertiliser plans and to help prevent deficiencies within the season. 

Tissue testing is also useful to determine the iron concentration of the plant mid-season in order to compare against optimum levels. Although laboratory results may be available too late to correct the deficiency in the current crop, they can be useful for decisions on iron use for future crops.

Loss Pathways

Application
Right Product

Coating fertiliser granules with Wolf Trax iron means that there are around 50 more landing sites in comparison to the granular alternative, resulting in greater plant uptake.

Right Time

In arable situations, applying iron at crop establishment proactively prevents iron deficiency. 

Right Place

Applying iron to the foliage is often too late as plants have already lost yield potential. Applying iron to the soil during establishment means there is no 'hunger gap' and helps build soil iron reserves. 

Right Rate

Using a Wolf Trax iron coating means plant uptake is maximised and so only small rates of iron are required.
