Ammonium Molybdate (Mo 52%)
Ammonium molybdate is effective for correcting crop molybdenum deficiency as and when it appears by foliar and drip treatment. Ammonium molybdate is required for two enzymes that convert nitrate to nitrite and subsequently to ammonia before it is used to generate amino acids inside the plant. To fix atmospheric nitrogen, symbiotic nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria in legumes require ammonium molybdate.
Molecular Formulae- (NH4)6Mo7O24
Alternative Names- Ammonium Paramolybdate
BENEFITS AND USES-
- Ammonium molybdate aids in the prevention of pathogens and infections in a variety of crops.
- For chloride-responsive crops such as coconut, oil palm, and kiwifruit, ammonium chloride is an effective source of both ammonium and molybdenum.
- For salty and alkaline soils, ammonium molybdate fertiliser is recommended.
- It is also an excellent nitrogenous fertiliser for use in low-lying locations where farmers grow rice and other crops.
- Because ammonium molybdate is less hygroscopic than other fertilisers, it has a relatively prolonged storage life.
HOW IT WORKS-
- It works as an important nitrogen and molybdenum source in fertilizers.
- Molybdenum is important for converting nitrate to nitrite as it is a major component that makes up chlorophyll.
TIME OF APPLICATION-
- Use our ammonium molybdate at the start of the growing season for the best results.
- It is recommended that 250-500 gm of our ammonium molybdate should be used per acre.
HOW TO USE-
- Dig a trench around 2-3 inches deep all around the plant, leaving 3 inches from the plant trunk.
- Spread our ammonium molybdate uniformly in the trench and then cover the trench with soil.
- Water the plant till some water comes out of the bottom of the pot.
