Chelated micronutrients are produced by altering positively charged cat-ions to negatively charged molecules. As soil itself is negatively charged, it repels negatively charged molecules of chelated micronutrients, making it easily available for uptake by plants.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2016 -- Chelated micronutrients are formed by altering positively-charged cat-ions to negatively charged molecules. In the recent past, there has been a rapid depletion of micronutrients from the soil due to extensive use of chemical fertilizers, large scale irrigation facilities, mining of micronutrient reserves, and intensive cropping patterns. Chelated-iron agricultural micronutrients are mixed with fertilizers to increase the mineral supplement in the soil. The global chelated-iron agricultural micronutrient market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% during the period from 2015 to 2021. The overall market is anticipated to be worth US$36.9 mn by the end of 2015 and further reach a valuation of US$51.4 mn by 2020.

Growing Demand for Food Worldwide to Boost Global Chelated-Iron Agricultural Micronutrient Market
Micronutrients such as iron, zinc, copper, boron, molybdenum, manganese, and silicon are present in small amounts in the soil and are essential for plant nutrition. Continuous crop cultivation over the years, coupled with degradation due to physical factors, reduces the productivity of the soil.
The global chelated-iron agricultural micronutrient market will be driven by factors such as growing demand for food, government support to farmers for the procurement of high-grade fertilizers, and depleting soil quality. However, the overall market will be restrained by high product price and fluctuating economic conditions.
