Case Study Foliar Application of Fertiliser.

A case study demonstrating that foliar application of fertiliser is an ideal method for boosting plant growth, correcting nutrient deficiencies and improving crop returns.

Foliar application of fertiliser is a method of supplying plant nutrients directly to plants by spraying water-dissolved fertilisers directly onto leaves to support the growth and production of plants. It is a complementary method of fertiliser application and is not considered as a complete substitution for supplying essential nutrients required by the crop through soil application of fertilisers. The applied nutrients are readily absorbed by leaves. If moisture of the applied fertiliser is lost, nutrient uptake is temporarily discontinued. However, at night, the dew re-dissolves the fertiliser and uptake of nutrient is renewed. The mechanism of foliar uptake of nutrients involves its penetration (mainly passive diffusion) through cuticle or stomata and translocation of the absorbed ions through vascular channels (phloem, xylem) from the leaves to the active plant system.
