What is foliar fertiliser and how is it different from ground-applied fertiliser?

These are concentrated solutions that are directly applied to leaves. Foliar fertiliser will not replace ground fertiliser. It is only complementary for nutrient uptake. Such a fertiliser satisfies deficiencies the plant may have.

Plants can only absorb small doses of their nutrient requirements through leaves. They absorb most of their nutrients through their roots.

Unlike ground-applied ones, foliar fertiliser provides nutrients where it is predominantly needed – foliage and cherry. It provides rapid and effective nutrient supply during growth when demand is highest.

The fertiliser is formulated to provide specific nutritional requirements. It provides support to plant growth under stress conditions.
It also maintains healthy foliage. It increases resistance to biotic and abiotic stress factors.
