The benefits of Nano trace elements: stronger plants and sustainable in use

Are you aware of the benefits of nano trace elements? Hortus has recently entered into an exclusive partnership with B+H Solutions GmbH for the sale and distribution of patented Nano trace elements. Nano trace elements strengthen plants, making them less susceptible to diseases and pests, improving their structure and producing increased yields per square metre. Nano trace elements are also sustainable in use. In this blog, we discuss each of these benefits with Robert Zuyderwijk from B+H Solutions.

Robert Zuyderwijk from B+H Solutions has been active in horticulture in various roles throughout his career. He has many years of experience in floriculture and in cereal cultivation where Robert has primarily been involved in process design in both Europe and in Africa. In every position he has held, Robert had to deal with fungal diseases and bacterial infections and in his search for a solution, he came across B+H Solutions’ nano trace elements. He now applies his confidence and enthusiasm for this product as a Business Developer for the company and thus, he came into contact with Hortus.

Benefits of using nano trace elements

We asked him to explain the major benefits of using his Nano Trace elements to us. He named the following advantages, which we will explain in more detail later in the article:

  • Stronger plants that are more resistant to fungi, bacteria and other diseases
  • Better leaf colour and leaf structure
  • Higher levels of production/yields per square metre
  • Sustainable in use

Nano trace elements increase production of crops

Stronger plants due to nano trace elements

Nano trace elements are very small nutrients that are easily absorbed into plant capillaries. This makes the absorption of nutrients such as iron, calcium, copper and silver very effective. Even at higher or lower pH values, nano trace elements are absorbed effectively by plants. Effective absorption of these substances makes plants stronger and strong plants are resilient plants. As a result, plants suffer less from diseases, bacteria, fungi and pests.

Our various nano trace elements are all intended for specific absorption of one substance and the associated benefits for plants:

  • Copper increases resistance to fungi
  • Calcium strengthens cell walls, enabling plants to retain more moisture
  • Iron leads to improved leaf colour and leaf structure
  • Silver strengthens capillaries

Higher levels of production and plant yields per square metre

The resilience of plants is crucial for consistent production and of course, for the value of plants in vegetable and floriculture. The use of nano trace elements and stronger plants you can grow by using them, offers two advantages to the production process:

  • Increased effective production per square metre
  • Increased value of plants per square metre

Our nano trace elements are widely used in vegetable cultivation and floriculture. Both sectors use our nano trace elements for higher levels of production, but the major aim of both sectors is different. In vegetable cultivation, resistance to fungal diseases and bacterial infection is the main reason for applying our nano trace elements. In floriculture, the main reasons for applying our nano trace elements are enhanced plant growth and a longer vase life.

Nano trace elements create stronger and healthier plants

Nano trace elements are sustainable in use

Nano trace elements are specifically designed for optimal nutrient absorption in plants. Compared to an iron chelating product for example, the application of nano trace elements is therefore more effective and sustainable in use. Sustainability lies in both usage as well as transport; the effectiveness of our products translates to lower levels of consumption (in volume) and therefore incurs lower transport costs.
