Polyaminocarboxylate and polyaminophenolcarboxylate chelating agents, of which EDTA and o,o-EDDHA are the most representative, are being profusely studied by our research team for 25 years due to their importance as micronutrient fertilizers used to correct nutritional disorders, and based on their level of impact on crop yields in Mediterranean re...
Article
The o,oEDDHA/Fe is the most common and effective iron chelate used as fertilizer in calcareous soils. Several authors have reported that the anionic o,oEDDHA/Fe complex is adsorbed to soil components such as ferrihydrite. The bicarbonate anion may be a competing ion for this sorption, however no studies have yet identified the extent and mechanism...
