Region :Global | Report ID: FBI104170 | Status : Ongoing



Chelate applies to the pincer-like manner where a metal resource ion is ringed by a broader organic molecule, typically referred to as chelator. Each raft, when paired with a micronutrient, may create a chelated fertilizer. To form a chelated substance to apply to the fertilizer, the chelating agent is processed to a finer powder. It is then combined with the sulfate of the appropriate micronutrient, e.g. ferrous sulfate, if iron is to be a chelated micronutrient. Ethylene di-amine tetra cetate (EDTA) is perhaps the most popular chelating agent in pesticides and fertilizers. Unlike other synthetic chelates, EDTA is a foreign component of the plant and is thus not processed by the plant.

There has been an rise in demand for food products resulting in an increase in population and a decline in agricultural land. In addition, farmers use creative technologies to crop growth and boost quality to meet the requirements of the increasing population and the food industry. Therefore, the rising demand for high-value crops is driving the market. However, the presence of the numerous manufacturers with a high level of production is likely to limit the power of the supply of raw materials, thereby affecting the growth of the industry.
