ZINC-8 Supports vital biochemical reactions in all turf, plants and crops. Zinc activates enzymes that are responsible for the synthesis of certain proteins. Zinc is used in the formation of chlorophyll and some carbohydrates, and conversion of starches to sugars. When present in proper ratios, zinc helps the plant to withstand cold temperatures. Zinc is also essential in the formation of auxins, that help with growth regulation and stem elongation.
Zinc deficiencies usually stunt plant growth, and result in decreased number of tillers, chlorosis in smaller leaves, slow crop maturity, spikelet sterility and inferior quality of crops.
BENEFITS OF USE
