About ZM-Grow™

A Premium Level Foliar Fertiliser


Using unique technology developed by Tracegrow in Finland, Manganese and Zinc  are extracted from used alkaline batteries and processed into premium-standard 100% Sulphate based liquid foliar fertiliser. Tracegrows ZM-Grow fulfils all requirements of EC legislation concerning fertilisers and is approved for use as an organic fertiliser under EU regulations. Not only is ZM-Grow proven highly effective but it is also the world's most ecological Zinc, Manganese and Sulphur based fertiliser product in which the key micronutrients nutrients are recycled. To ensure quality, purity and consistency every batch is monitored and overseen by 100% external independent quality control certified laboratories. ZM-Grow™ has been certified for organic use in the UK by OF&G (Organic Farms and Growers).

ZM-Grow™ foliar fertiliser is a liquid compound of micronutrients Zinc, Manganese and included are additional important nutrients Potassium and Sulphur. Micronutrients are essential for plant growth and they play an important role in balanced crop nutrition.

Zinc - is needed to produce proteins and carbohydrates and it serves as an essential growth hormone in auxin synthesis.

Manganese - is required by plants to produce proteins and it enables the plant to utilise other nutrients optimally and functions primarily as part of enzyme systems in plants. It activates several important metabolic reactions and plays a direct role in photosynthesis.

Sulphur - is vital when producing proteins and it speeds up development of vitamins. Potassium improves crop quality and helps to receive non-mineral nutrients.

Standard deliveries of ZM-Grow™ come in 10 litre containers or 1000 litre IBC's. We can supply larger tanks according to customer needs.

How to use ZM-Grow™

Preparations for efficient use of foliar micronutrients compounds start with soil testing and plant analysis. After the tests, the need for foliar fertilising during periods of peak nutrient demand, can be assessed and planned in advance.

The required amount of ZM-Grow™ fertiliser can be calculated after soil testing. It normally varies from 2 to 3 litres per hectare.

ZM-Grow™ is a concentrate and a typical amount of 2 to 3 litres a hectare is to be mixed with 200 - 300 litres of water.

Spraying the mixture can be done using any standard crop sprayer.
