Mobilisation of minerals from the soil and corresponding uptake by the root are related to the quantity and quality of root surface that comes in contact with the mineral. Because plants sometimes grow at rates that are faster than the ability of the roots to absorb and translocate minerals to the critical leaf and or berry tissues, foliar sprays can often help overcome a deficiency or maintain optimum nutritional levels of those critical tissues. Therefore foliar application can be used as an adjunctive method of plant nutrition.
There are a myriad of different formulations of elements available to growers at present. Oxides, Sulphates and EDTA chelates are the most commonly recognized formulations; however, these formulations have been superseded by 3rd generation Glycine technology.
                      Biomin glycine chelated molecule

What is Glycine technology?

It is a patented process of chelation whereby every metal ion is bonded with two Glycine (smallest amino acid) molecules creating a fully chelated product. The plant recognizes this molecule as a proteinaceous molecule allowing it to travel in the phloem quite readily to the growing points such as flowers and berries where it is required, as well as replenishing leaf levels. Glycine chelation technology allows metals to be mobile elements whereas elemental minerals, outside of this technology have low mobility within the plant.
The method of delivery of these ‘Bio-Available’ minerals is not conventional, like the delivery methods of products such as Oxides, Sulphates and EDTA based trace elements. The latter products can marginally reduce deficiencies, but the speed by which the elements are released from these products and transported into the growing points is very slow compared to the transportation of elements in the Glycine form.
This form of chelation has provided tremendous advantages because of increased absorption and translocation of the minerals within the plant.
They are highly systemic, non-phytotoxic, 100% soluble, and economical due to the high availability. Glycine chelates are generally registered by organic certifies, therefore organic growers can also take advantage of the technology.
The greatest advantage in foliar nutrition is the ease of application; however always choose a fertilizer which is highly soluble. If the product is not 100% soluble, this results in supplying the mineral onto the plant, not into the plant where it is required. Glycine Technology has revolutionized the application of elements such as Zinc, Boron and Calcium, which in elemental form have low mobility.
This Internationally patented technology now enables elements to completely permeate the fruit and leaf tissue, (even those plants with waxy cuticles such as citrus or avocado) and it is not  reliant on stomata opening. The intake of these elements can now be mobilized via both the phloem and xylem with systemic action to the growing points where they are most needed.
