pH UP AND DOWN
WHAT IS pH UP AND DOWN?
Acidifier and Alkalizer
pH Up and pH Down regulate the pH for optimal nutrient uptake, stable beneficial bacteria colonies, and help prevent nutrient deficiencies.
THE pH SCALE
pH RANGE AND NUTRIENT UPTAKE.
- Nitrogen has a fairly large range
- Iron is best taken up when the pH is slightly acidic.
- Molybdenum is best when pH is slightly alkaline
Chelation can expand the pH range of micronutrients. Chelation is when one element or compound assists another in being taken up by the plant. It is important to use the entire Emerald Harvest line because many of our nutrient products aid in chelation.
WHY USE EMERALD HARVEST
pH UP AND DOWN?
USING pH UP AND DOWN.
- Pre-empt lockout – Avoid nutrients deficiencies by keeping the pH stable.
- Increase uptake – In the pH sweet spot, all essential elements remain available.
- Safeguard plants – Imbalanced pH can damage—or even kill—your plants.
