Aquavitro propel Iron Supplement

Aquavitro propel is an iron supplement in a concentrated form which helps to provide iron nutrient to plants. This will enhance the Red colouring in plants.

  • Concentrated (10,000 mg/L) source of ferrous iron
  • Propels plant growth
  • Mixture of readily available and time-released iron
  • Converts existing ferric iron into ferrous form

  • Overview

    Iron is immobile in plants; this means that plants cannot deliver iron from older leaves to new ones. Therefore, deficiency symptoms appear first on new or young leaves.

    Because plants use iron to produce chlorophyll, a lack of iron results in chlorosis, or yellowing, of the younger leaves.

    Stems may also appear short and slender. If the deficiency is severe and prolonged, each new leaf emerges lighter in colour than the preceding leaf.

    propel is a concentrated (10,000 mg/L) source of ferrous iron.

    This ferrous iron is a mixture of readily available and time-released iron.

    If iron is provided in the ferric form (Fe3+) then it must be reduced by the plant to the ferrous form (Fe2+) before it can be utilised.

    This process of conversion (known as reduction) requires the plant to expend physiological energy. propel provides iron already in the ferrous form thus enhancing iron utilisation.

    In addition, propel contains a reducing agent that helps convert any iron present (such as iron from substrate) into the ferrous form.
