    We have a new supplier for Ferrous Gluconate. We hope you will all be as pleased as we are by this new grade of ferrous gluconate. We find it an excellent texture to work; clean and more soluble than any ferrous gluconate that we have offered before. And we have reduced the price of all iron compounds.

    Oh right!


    I always jump off from the "latest posts" page, rarely even notice the specific forum.


    Thanks Jason :)

    Most of our fertilizers are agricultural grade. All are water soluble. The MKP is technical grade. The calcium chloride and the ferrous gluconate are food grade. The higher the grade, the cleaner and more expensive the fertilizer.

    Fe gluconate is typically Food grade, they do not use it much, if at all................ for agriculture. If you use it, add vinegar 5% distilled white...........maybe 10-20 mls to the tap water in the bottle (use hot water). Shake good. THEN............add the trace mixes to that bottle AFTER you have added the acid and shaken good. This removes most of the dKH and kills any bacterial or mold. Which makes the mix last longer and stay chelated or liganded.
