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.
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:
AgroArgentum® is the best root stimulator, promoting flower formation: maximum development of roots with better quality, length and thickness.
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:
AgroFerrum® is an iron EC fertilizer solution that contains 15% iron nanoparticles that are more bioavailable to the plants.
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:
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 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.
