Improving your garden through Chelation

by Mike Usry April 18, 2013

What is Chelation?

Wikipedia states that;

  1. A chelating agent is a substance whose molecules can form several bonds to a single metal ion. In other words, a chelating agent is a multidentate ligand. An example of a simple chelating agent is ethylenediamine.

That is a bit of a mouthful and certainly not in layman's terms.  Matt is going to break it down a bit differently.  Since we deal with agriculture we will relate the definition like this

Chelation is a process by which a material is bound and the charge is changed to make it attractive OR unattractive to the plant root.

Watch the video below to learn more about chelation and its benefits to your plants and crops.  You will begin to understand how our products work in order to help deliver vital nutrients to your garden and fields.
