Bio-Chelate Fertilizers: An Easily Absorbable Form Of Nutrients

Are you looking for a reliable, effective fertilizer to use on your crops?

If so, Bio-Chelate Fertilizers may be the answer you’ve been searching for. In this article, we will provide an introduction to Bio-Chelate Fertilizers and explain the benefits of using them.

Bio-Chelate Fertilizers

Bio-Chelate Fertilizers get their name from a process called chelation. Chelation is a way of ensuring that nutrients in the fertilizer are protected and able to be used efficiently by plants. During chelation, natural organic molecules are used to bind important minerals and micronutrients together. This ensures that they can be absorbed more efficiently into the plant’s cells, allowing them to benefit more from the enriched soil.

Bio-Chelate Fertilizers are specially formulated minerals that have been molecularly attached to an amino acid. These amino-chelated minerals are more easily absorbable by plants than non-chelated forms. They play an important role in root development, cell elongation, pollination, fertilization, sugar and starch translocation for plant growth, metabolic processes like DNA synthesis and photosynthesis, regulation of hormone levels for proper growth, flower production and retention, pollen tube elongation, and germination, as well as seed and fruit development. Furthermore, they assist plants during growth stages when deficient, as well as capture the sun’s energy through photosynthesis for growth and production. This type of fertilizer has many benefits for the healthy growth of plants.

Peptech Biosciences Ltd., A Manufacturer of Bio-Chelate Fertilizers

Peptech Biosciences Limited is an agri-input company with the objective of providing high-quality crop solutions to farmers across the globe. They are one of the leading manufacturers of Bio-Chelate Fertilizers, also called Amino Acid Mineral Chelates.

Amino Acid Mineral Chelates are a specific form of nutritive minerals. An amino acid-chelated mineral is simply a mineral (like magnesium, iron, boron, etc.) that’s been molecularly attached to an amino acid. Attaching amino acids to the mineral molecules creates a more stable structure that’s better able to survive the acidic environment in the soil bioflora. These amino-chelated minerals are thought to be more easily absorbable by plants than non-chelated forms.

Peptech Biosciences Ltd. Chelate Formulations and their benefits:

Calcium Amino Acid Chelate- Ca-12%

  1. It is essential for root development during the early growth stage of the plant.
  2. Calcium is a part of the cell wall and hence related to cell division and the cell elongation process.

Calcium Boron Amino Acid Chelate- C:B 6:1

  1. Helps in pollination, fertilization, and the formation of seeds and grains.
  2. Maintains a balance between sugar and starch and functions in their translocation for the growth and development of the plant.

Ferrous Amino Acid Chelates- Fe-12%

  1. Plays a critical role in metabolic processes such as DNA synthesis, respiration, and photosynthesis.
  2. It is involved in the synthesis of chlorophyll and is essential for the maintenance of chloroplast structure and function.

Boron Amino Acid Chelate- B-12%

  1. Enhances regulation of plants’ hormone levels and promotes proper growth.
  2. Increases flower production and retention, pollen tube elongation and germination, and seed and fruit development.

Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate-Mn-12%

  1. It aids the plant at various stages of development and severity of deficiency.
  2. Captures the sun’s energy for growth and production through photosynthesis.

Copper Amino Acid Chelate- Cu-12%

  1. It promotes chlorophyll production and protein synthesis, slows plant aging, and increases fruit and grain production.
  2. Contributes to photosynthesis and the metabolism of carbohydrates and proteins in plants.

Manganese Amino Acid Chelate Mn-6%

  1. Plays a role in pollen germination, pollen tube growth, root cell elongation, and resistance to root pathogens.
  2. It also helps in maintaining subcellular homeostasis.

Molybdenum Amino Acid Chelate Mo-2%

  1. Molybdenum is an essential component in two enzymes that convert nitrate into nitrite (a toxic form of nitrogen) and then into ammonia before it is used to synthesize amino acids within the plant.
  2. It is also needed by symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria in legumes to fix atmospheric nitrogen.

Zinc Amino Acid Chelate Zn-12%

  1. Zinc is part of an enzyme that regulates the equilibrium among carbon dioxide, water, and carbonic acid.
  2. Zinc is found to be associated with water relations in plants and improves water uptake.

Aminofert MMF

It is a consortium of all chelated minerals.

Along with Amino Acid Mixture, Peptech Biosciences Ltd. also offers Bio-Stimulants such as Aminofert Gold, Amino Acid Mixture, Crop Tiger, Xeon, Seaweed Liquid 20%, Mycorrhizae, and many more. They also manufacture Bio- Pesticides, Bio-Fertilizers, Plant Growth Regulators, Micro-Nutrient Fertilizers, and many more.
