Molybdenum is one of the essential micronutrients for plants and even though it is required in a really small amount, without it, deficiency is a surety leading to a poor harvest. It is an essential component in the enzymes that will lead to the conversion of nitrate into nitrite and eventually into ammonia, which is required by the plants to synthesise amino acids.
Some of the most common symptoms of deficiency of molybdenum in plants and soils include paling of leaves, misshaped leaves, premature germination, decreased tasselling in crops, etc. The crops that are most susceptible to molybdenum deficiency include cruciferous plants such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, legumes such as peas and beans, etc.
The easiest and simplest way to tackle Molybdenum deficiency in plants is by using a fertiliser that is rich in Molybdenum. Generally, it is delivered in the form of water-soluble fertilisers, which are usually released under some manner of control.
Rubamin has, for a long time, been producing high quality and high purity Molybdenum compounds for the agricultural sector and for over a decade now, it has been one of the largest and most reliable manufacturers of high-grade Molybdenum salts.
A free-flowing soluble fertilizers, it is used as a supplement. Rubamin offers high-grade sodium molybdate for foliar as well as fertigation applications in the agriculture industry. It is ideal for acidic soils and can help convert the nitrate present in leaves into amino acids and proteins, enabling far better growth.
It is a water-soluble fertiliser and allows for the enhanced intake of nitrogen. A small amount when combined with water can create sufficient fertiliser for a large farm area. Rubamin’s Ammonium Molybdate can be used on a range of crops including soya, wheat and a range of other plants that need molybdenum.
To meet the superior quality and high water-solubility Rubamin’s salt-solutions are always clear. This is also possible due to the very low levels of impurities in the Molybdates resulting from the advanced purification technology that has been developed in-house. With strong in-house R&D team we aim to continue improve our products based on market trends and allow higher yields and healthier crops.
