Yates FlowTrace is a free flowing, finely ground trace element mixture, designed for incorporation into potting media. FlowTrace is a one-shot method of providing all trace elements to typical Australian potting media. The balance between the various trace elements in FlowTrace is based on extensive research by Australian plant nutrition authority Kevin Handreck.

As the trace element chemicals dissolve in water in the potting medium, the iron, copper, zinc and manganese react with phenols and humus to produce chelated forms of these trace elements. These naturally chelated trace elements are held firmly on and within the particles of bark and wood within the medium. Because they are spread throughout the medium, they are readily accessible by plant roots throughout the medium.

Features and Benefits:

  • Formulated specifically for potting mixes
  • Contains zeolite to improve mix flowability
  • Contains a high iron content which is most commonly lacking in wood based potting mixes
  • A total trace element mix for bark and wood based potting mixes

Guaranteed Analysis:

  • Iron (Fe) 24%
  • Copper (Cu) 0.75%
  • Manganese (Mn) 0.5%
  • Zinc (Zn) 0.2%
  • Molybdenum (Mo) 0.04%
  • Boron (B) 0.033%

Product Information

Yates FlowTrace is only recommended for addition to a potting medium or its components before potting. It may be added to bark and other wood wastes before these are composted, or to the mixture of components as they are being blended into a potting medium.

When Yates FlowTrace is to be the sole source of added trace elements, incorporate it at a rate of 1 kg/m3.
When one of the components has already had some iron sulphate added to it (for example before composting), the rate of incorporation of FlowTrace can be reduced, but to no less than 0.5 kg/m3.
It could be necessary to increase the rate of addition to no more than 1.5 kg/m3 if a potting medium contains a high proportion of fine humified organic matter.
