Fundamentals of Foliar Fertilisers

This session will focus on how plants absorb nutrients through their leaves and how those nutrients will be moved in the plant once absorbed. Research on nitrogen uptake and other nutrients will be discussed.

Learning Outcomes:

• When and why to use foliar fertilisation

• How plants absorb nutrients through the leaves

• Some of the limitations of nutrient absorption through the leaves

• How “form of nutrient” affects foliar absorption
