Foliar nutrition has proven to be an efficient way to cure the nutritional deficiencies of plants and boost their development in specific physiological stages. In this method of plant fertilization the solution is sprayed directly on the leaves of the plants. Foliar nutrition with foliar fertilizers can provide the nutrients required for normal development of crops in cases where the absorption of nutrients by the root system has been altered.
It is well known that certain stages of the development of the plant are of the greatest importance in determining the final yield, foliar nutrition with fertilizers totally soluble in water significantly increases yields and improves their quality. Since the absorption of nutrients through the foliage is considerably faster than through the roots, foliar application is also the method to choose when a correction of nutritional deficiencies is needed.
