Chelated with the purest ortho-ortho EDDHA that exists, Soygreen is the leading micronutrient for overcoming iron deficiency chlorosis in soybeans.
Chelation makes fertilizer work. And since there are different types of chelate, there are different types of fertilizer performance.
When pH levels are above 7, the soil is basic. And soils with these highly alkaline pH levels often prevent plant roots from reducing iron to a soluble state.
Iron is always in a ferric (Fe3+) state when it’s in the soil. But plant roots need to reduce ferric iron (Fe3+) into ferrous iron (Fe2+) in order to make it soluble for uptake.
If plant roots can’t take up ferrous iron (Fe2+), they become deficient. The symptoms that follow are weak plant vigor, yellowing leaves and total non-emergence in certain areas.
Water, nitrogen and manganese may also contribute to IDC. Excess water increases bicarbonates (HCO3−), which further hinder pH levels around plant roots. And excess nitrogen (N) or manganese (Mn) will compete with iron (Fe2+) for uptake when the plant reaches the trifoliate growth stage.
Soygreen not only has the purest form of ortho-ortho EDDHA, it also has the highest percentage of it. This makes it strong enough to keep ferrous iron (Fe2+) in its soluble state and overcome iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC).
Soygreen is available as a liquid in 2.5-gallon jugs and 250-gallon mini-bulk tanks. It’s also offered as a dry flowable in 30-pound bags and 1,100-pound super sacks.
Soygreen can be applied in-furrow or foliar. But research shows that in-furrow applications are most effective.
We’ve been able to plant beans on ground we normally never could.
Inconsistent results come from how well a chelate can keep iron in the available form. Soygreen, with the ortho-ortho EDDHA chelate, offers better protection.
This is the best thing we’ve seen to combat the IDC issues we face here.
With Soygreen, we went from 0 bushels in some spots to 45, 46 and even 48.
