Reindeer’s Natural Plant Foods WATER SOLUBLE N.P.K FERTILIZERS
 THE ULTIMATE IN QUALITY

SOLUBILITY

Reindeer’s plant foods are 100% soluble.  Using colloidal principles, our exclusive TURBO manufacturing process makes this possible by providing Reindeers with a very fine and uniform particle size.  The Reindeers N.P.K’s water soluble does not leave deposits in tanks or irrigation lines, when mixed according to directions.  Also the high solubility allows the plant foods to be applied through injector systems and as concentrated foliar applications.  The benefits of foliar fertilization as a supplement to normal application fertilizers are well documented.  Reindeers, because it is so highly soluble, is ideal for use in a foliar feeding program.  Foliar sprays will not replace your regular program of root feeding, but the technique will supply valuable supplementary nutrients to plants quickly and efficiently.  Foliar fertilization is also useful in correcting deficiency problems in plants, because of the very rapid absorption of plant nutrients through the leaves.  (See article on Foliar Fertilization included in this booklet.)

TRACE ELEMENTS

Reindeers plant foods contain a chelated element complex of iron, zinc, copper and manganese made from the chelating agent Tetrasocium Ethylenediamine Tetraacetate (EDTA).  This complex, combined with the elements to satisfy most crops under a feeding program in both ACID and ALCALINE conditions (ions are lined up).

PURITY

Reindeers plant foods contain no sulphates, harmful chlorides, or other undesirable elements to damage plant roots or leaves.

SOLUBLE SALTS

The formulations are made with pure high-grade components, which are in as highly as concentrated form as possible to insure that soluble salts will be at a minimum.  This will reduce the possibility of stem canker due to a build-up of salts at the soil level.

APPLICATION

Reindeers plant foods are versatile and can be applied by many different methods.  The high solubility makes it an ideal choice for simple and complex injector systems.  Concentrated solutions can be easily prepared for application by conventional sprayers and aircraft, etc.  Consistent conductivity in water for each analysis ensures that injectors that operate on this principal can use Reindeers with predictable and reproducible results.  Reindeers N.P.K. WATER SOLUBLE products can also be applied as a spray on any crop with no fear of foliar damage, when used at recommended rates and considering climatic conditions and proper crop management practices.

COMPATABILITY

Many pesticides can be mixed with Reindeers water-soluble plant foods and applied in one application to save cost.  Reindeers water-soluble plant foods are formulated to prevent the hydrolysis of most pesticides that can take place when most pesticides and fertilizers are tank mixed.  If you are in an area that has alkaline water, the addition of Reindeers plant foods as a buffer, can stop or reduce the hydrolysis reaction, which can destroy the efficacy of the pesticide.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE & QUALITY CONTROL

Reindeer’s water-soluble plant foods are made to a standard of high quality, and purity.  Having proven consistency in excellent results.  A dye is incorporated to act as a colour tracer.  Samples are constantly monitored to ensure that all levels of nutrients are met, and all other specifications are within tightly defined limits.

AGRICULTURAL CROPS

Reindeer’s water-soluble fertilizers are being used extensively on agricultural crops, in transplanting solutions, irrigation systems, and foliar feeding.  The excellent solubility of Reindeers makes nutrients quickly available to transplants (when used as a starter solution) results in rapid take-off, which is essential in a shorter growing season.  Reindeers is easily applied through irrigation systems, allowing application to be gauged according to the crops developmental stages, permitting the grower to apply the exact combination of nutrients at the right times.   Applications to agricultural crops as a foliar feed are becoming increasingly popular; to correct deficiencies, and to provide nutrients during times of stress.  Also, by preventing the hydrolysis of pesticides and fertilizers in tank mixes.

CHELATION- Ethylene Eiamine Tetraacetate (EDTA)

Iron deficiency is a problem in several crops, particularly in conditions of high PH.  Iron Chelated can be used to correct iron deficiency in ornamentals, turf, and fruit trees.  This product contains 13.2% chelated iron and can be applied as a foliar spray or soil drench to crops such as chrysanthemums, gardenia, hydrangea, rose, azalea, holly rhododendron, turf, fruit trees, and vegetables.  Chelating agents such as EDTA are large organic structures that form a complex with micronutrients.  This complex forms a larger chelated ion, which reduces the ability of the micronutrients more available for plant uptake.  The chelating agent keeps the micronutrient in solution, even when the soil pH is higher than desired for a specific crop.  Plants are able to absorb chelates very easily and there is less chance of burning roots than if sulphates are used.

Iron

The main role of iron is the part that it plays in the synthesis of chlorophyll, but the new way in which it works is still obscure after more than twenty years work.  It is thought, however, that iron acts as an activator in one or more of the enzyme systems involved.  Iron is also essential for the formation of certain pigment compounds called cytochromes, which are necessary if photosynthesis and respiration is to occur.  Iron is a constituent of another compound, important in photosynthesis, known as ferredoxin and this serves a similar role to the cytochromes.

Manganese

This substance has a wide range of activity as an enzyme activator.  Among enzymes that are affected by manganese in this way are those responsible for the synthesis of fatty acids, of DNA, RNA, and an enzyme involved in Krebs cycle.  It may also act – like the cytochromes and ferredoxin mentioned in the discussion on iron – as an electron carrier in photosynthesis.  Manganese is also thought to be a catalyst in a state in chlorophyll synthesis.  A catalyst, incidentally, has the same effect as an enzyme – i.e., it speeds up a chemical reaction, but does so by a different method.  There is also a suggestion that manganese plays a part in the structure of the chloroplast membrane.

Copper

Copper, like several of the other trace elements discussed, is incorporated in many enzymes and is important as an electron carrier.  For example, it is a necessary part of the enzyme poly phenol oxidase, and of nitrate reductase.  It also has a role in nitrogen fixation.

Boron

Very little is known about boron and its importance in plant physiology, but since definite deficiencies do occur, it must have some physiological role.  It has been suggested that boron might have a role in carbohydrate translocation – the movement of carbohydrate molecules from one part of the plant to another.  This seems likely since in the absence of boron, sugar transport through the phloem – the vascular tissue, which conducts synthesized foods – is decreased.

 

 

The purpose of a Gardener is to harvest sunlight through the methodical manipulation of plants.

 

 

 

Molybdenum

The best know function of molybdenum is as an electron carrier in enzymes, which convert nitrate to ammonium ions – the same enzymes of which iron is such an important constituent.  Molybdenum is also essential for the process of nitrogen fixation.

Magnesium

(Always sufficient amounts in most soils, but doubtful on grazing fields.)  A classic example of the importance of trace elements in enzymes, is the presence of magnesium to the chlorophyll of green plants, and after the plants have ripened, in their seed.  Chlorophyll is a complex organic chemical.  Its molecule is complex too.  It contains 72 atoms of hydrogen, 55 of carbon, 5 of oxygen, 4 of nitrogen and … one of magnesium, but without that one atom of magnesium, chlorophyll would be unable to produce all the substances which green plants need for sustained growth, maximum fruition and the growers need for a profitable crop.  Magnesium is also important in activating enzymes involved in the release of energy.  Enzymes may exist in a dormant or inactive state and require some stimulant to activate them before they can do the job for which they were designed.  In this case, magnesium activates certain enzymes and enables them to act on molecules referred to as ATP, to liberate the energy necessary for life.  Magnesium is essential in a third area of activity; it is required to maintain the structure of the ribosomes.  These are small cellular embodies of ribonucleic protein which are essential for protein synthesis.
