Bolikel® XP is a premium brand high performance iron chelate produced by AkzoNobel. It contains the new chelating agent HBED. The Fe-HBED bond is about 10.000 times stronger than that of the best known family member Fe-EDDHA. The product therefore has longevity, important for soil applications.
Bolikel® XP contains 6% water-soluble iron (Fe) and has an equally high ortho-ortho level of 6% Fe[o,o]HBED, which is unique. Due to the good longevity and the high ortho-ortho level, the dose rates are lower compared to a standard Fe-EDDHA 4,8 % ortho-ortho product.
The product is very suitable for applications in saline or semi-arid environments, and also for hydroponic systems without and with reuse of drainage water.
