Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) — Scientists of the Academy of Sciences of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have developed a new kind of composite microelement fertilizer.
The fertilizer absorbed into seeds and crops supplies them with essential microelements including B, Zn, Cu and Mn during the whole period of their growth, thus ensuring metabolism of plants such as photosynthesis and composition of nutritive substances. It also strengthens their resistance to salinity, harmful insects, drought, rain and storm and increases the number of ears of plant and the number of grains per ear.
It is also applicable to fruit trees, cash crops, and economic and medicinal plants as well as grains and vegetables.
The amount of the fertilizer applied per hectare is smaller than other kinds.
