Manganese (Mn) helps the plant in several ways: assimilation of carbon dioxide, which aids in the synthesis of chlorophyll as well as nitrate assimilation. Manganese activates enzymes which functions in the formation of riboflavin, ascorbic acid, and carotene. Soil with high pH reduces Manganese availability whereas low pH level of soil increases the availability of Mn. Mn-Sol is produced from Penicillium citrinum, a naturally occurring and beneficial fungus. Upon application into the soil, the organism germinates conidiospores, which subsequently form mycelia. The mycelia interact with root exudates for energy metabolism and produce organic acids such as oxalic and citric acids. These metabolites solubilize fixed manganese and manganese oxide. Thus help the plants to uptake the elemental Mn.
Crops: All crops
Seedling treatment: Mix 20 ml of Mn-Sol in 1 litre of water and dip the seedlings for about 30 minutes prior to plantation. This process would allow the bacterium to adhere the roots.
Soil application: Add 1 litre of Mn-Sol into 500kg of organic manure and broadcast it.
Application through drip system: One litre of Mn-Soll per acre can be delivered through drip irrigation system.
Content: Penicillium citrinum (1 x 107 cfu / ml)
Caution: Do not mix with chemical fungicides or fertilizers.
Expiry: One year from the date of manufacturing
Pack size: 1000ml and 500ml
