HY-PRO ADDITIVES – SPRAYMIX
PLANT SUPPORT NOT FOCUSSED ON THE ROOT INTERACTION
Foliar feeding is a technique of feeding plants by applying liquid fertilizer directly to their leaves. You might be asking, how is that possible? Isn’t that what soil, fertilizer, and hydroponic nutrient solutions are for? A plant can absorb nutrients through it’s leaves at a quicker rate than it can through it’s roots. Nutrients pass through the stomata of the leaves. Stomata are pores on leaves that allow plants to “breathe.” The nutrients provided through foliar spray will travel through the entire plant, all they way to the roots. Like carbohydrates produced through photosynthesis, nutrients from foliar spray will also disperse through the rest of the plant. In fact, up to 90% of a foliar-fed solution can be found in the roots of a plant within 1-hour of application.
