Reindeer’s Natural Plant Foods
SOLUBLE N.P.K FERTILIZERS
ULTIMATE IN QUALITY
plant foods are 100% soluble. Using colloidal principles, our
exclusive TURBO manufacturing process makes this possible by
Reindeers with a very fine and uniform particle size.
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
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.)
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).
plant foods contain no sulphates, harmful chlorides, or other
undesirable elements to damage plant roots or leaves.
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
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

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
pesticides can be mixed with
water-soluble plant foods and applied in one application to save
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
plant foods as a buffer, can stop or reduce the hydrolysis
reaction, which can destroy the efficacy of the pesticide.
PROVEN PERFORMANCE & QUALITY CONTROL
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.
water-soluble fertilizers are being used extensively on
agricultural crops, in transplanting solutions, irrigation
systems, and foliar feeding. The excellent solubility of

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