Why To Use Iron Sulphate in Plants?

The main question is why to use Iron Sulphate or ferrous sulphate in your plants that you want to grow. There are many reason for the use of Iron Sulphate(granular or powdered) in your plants. Some of the most important uses and benefits of using Iron Sulphate are as follows:

  • Ferrous Sulfate fertilizer is used to correct Chlorosis (yellowing of the leaves).
  • In the plant, iron plays a role in photosynthetic electron transport, respiration, chlorophyll formation, and numerous enzymatic reactions.
  • This Iron fertilizer should be put on plants wothout any presence of Phosphorous. This is because Phosphorous instead of prevent chlorosis, enhances the speed of chlorosis, which is yellowing of leaves
  • It is Water Soluble Powder
  • Essential for chlorophyll production
  • Promotes energy transfers
  • Required in photosynthesis
  • Part of the enzyme system needed for plant respiration
  • Required for the formation of some proteins
  • Promotes healthy growth in plants

It was also found out by research that the chlorosis(yellowing of leaves) occured due to the high carbonate concentration of the soil and thus by applying Iron Sulphate in proper ratio, the rate of chlorosis process would be highly decreased.

Iron Sulphate or Ferrous Sulphate is also one of the 17 most essential compounds needed by the plant for their proper growth i.e. growth without any deficiency diseases.
