• Manganese plays a major role in photosynthesis and is a co-factor of numerous enzymes, as well as being a vital part of cell repair and defense mechanisms.
  • A lack of readily available Manganese can affect growth rates, plant development and tolerance to stress, especially during the early stages of growth.
  • Low Manganese status results in slow growth, reduced disease resistance and poor nitrogen use efficiency.
  • Manganese deficiency is most likely to occur on organic or alkaline soils with a pH value at or above 6.5, and is intensified by cool; wet growing conditions, poor drainage and unconsolidated seedbeds.
  • Manganese deficient plants show slow growth, a lax canopy and low vigor.
  • Effective on crops with high Manganese requirements:
    • Soybeans
    • Potatoes
    • Fruit & Vegetable Crops
    • Wheat
    • Sugarbeets
    • Beans
