Abstract

Shortly after the discovery of the usefulness of chelating compounds by agriculturists, whereby metallic cations are supplied in available form to plants, another use was proposed. This paper is dedicated to this resulting use, namely, that certain chelates appear to have value in keeping phosphate compounds from becoming “fixed” or “tied-up” in the soil.
