Biodegradable chelating agent IDS (IDHA)

IDS is a state-of-the-art, fully biodegradable chelating agent (75% degradation within 28 days), a property that makes it the only environmentally friendly and synthetically produced chelating agent on the market. The total concentration of an essential metal / nutrient (e.g. copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc) in the special fertiliser is 100% bound (complexed) by IDS, making it fully effective and available to the plants. Speciality fertiliser manufacturers can formulate it as a stable, ready-to-use and highly pure aqueous solution, making it very convenient for farmers to prepare easy-to-use solutions.

Such special fertilisers serve as an effective source of iron or other metals / essential nutrients. It is mainly recommended for foliar application, especially for fruits and vegetables, as it does not leave any residue on the produce we consume due to its biodegradability. The product can also be used in fertigation and hydroponics at moderate pH conditions. It is recommended for preventive and corrective fertilisation in all agricultural and horticultural crops.
