HOW RICE CROPS BENEFIT FROM LVFENG FOLIAR FERTILIZERS

 How rice crops benefit from Lvfeng Foliar Fertilizers

Foliar fertilizers are fast acting because they are absorbed right at the site where they are used. Foliar feeding of these fertilizers not only replenishes plant nutrients but also act as catalyst in the uptake and use of certain macronutrients. 

Research showed that all foliar applied nutrients are absorbed by the leaves. By spraying foliar fertilizers on the leaf, it increases the activity in the leaf, at the same time increasing chlorophyll and thus photosynthesis. Because of this increased activity, it increases the need for water by the leaf. In turn, this increases water uptake by the plants vascular system, which in turn increases the uptake of plant nutrients from the soil. 

New rice varieties have higher photosynthesis capabilities and thus producing 35% more rice per hectare. The principle with foliar feeding is the same: increased photosynthesis. 

A small amount of foliar fertilizer applied, actually increases the uptake in terms of total uptake by several fold over the amount of soil fertilizer applied. A small amount of foliar applied plant nutrients can increase the yield so significantly, actually providing a better return per dollar outlaid than soil applied fertilizer. This does not mean that the application of foliar fertilizers replaces the soil applied fertilizer, but increases its uptake.
