Agrochemicals

Manganese plays a key role in Agrochemicals. Indeed, it serves different industries: the feed additives, mainly for animal nutrition, the fertilizers industry, and the fungicides industry. This leads to regular demand for our high quality products, because ERACHEM commits itself to proactively meet and exceed stringent international standards. We have a broad range of products targeted to these applications from MnO (Manganese Oxide) to MnSO4 (Manganese Sulfate) without forgetting MnCl2 (Manganese Chloride) and MnNO32 (Manganese Nitrate).

Manganese is one of the nine essential micronutrients (trace minerals) for healthy animals. It is a required component of many enzyme systems, including carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism. Because animals store very little manganese in their bodies, their diet must contain enough manganese to meet daily requirements. Manganese helps animals synthesize fatty acids and cholesterol. It is also required for bone strength and reproductive health. Animals require it to efficiently utilize biotin, vitamin B1, and vitamin C.  Deficiency symptoms include abnormal skeletal growth/bone porosity, poor reproductive performance in ewes and cows, small, weak offspring, increased fat deposition, gait abnormalities in new-born calves and lambs, reduced milk production, poor egg shell formation, and slipped tendons in poultry. Our main product for feed additives is MnO (Manganese Oxide). 

Alma® Manganous Oxide (MnO60)

Erachem_Agrochemicals_Manganese Oxide_MnO

Manganous oxide is a very efficient manganese micronutrient choice for animal nutrition, and ALMA® is the animal industry’s best choice, because it provides maximum bio-availability.

By keeping MnO2 at a level at or below 2%, and Mn at or above 60%, ALMA® provides best in class value. ALMA® also assures the industry of low impurities, including arsenic, cadmium and lead.

We achieve this by:

  1. Always using high grade ore
  2. Using automated state-of-the-art processes at our three facilities that provide thorough conversion
  3. Using the most advanced and thorough testing procedures to detect MnO2 and impurities

Erachem_Agrochemicals_Fertilizers

Manganese belongs to the pool of metals such as zinc, boron, copper, iron, molybdenum, that are considered as being vital micronutrients for plant growth and thus for numerous crops for which deficiencies in these nutrients are well known.

Manganese activates a number of enzymes such as dehydrogenases, transferases and decarboxylases. It is known to induce a cycle of reactions within the plant, acting as a catalyst. The role of Manganese in chloroplasts is clearly identified through its absolute necessity for water splitting during photosynthesis (Hill’s reaction). Manganese is also known to be important in carbon di-oxide assimilation and in nitrogen assimilation. Those metabolisms are essential components to build the crop yield.

Plants suck Manganese up from the soil solution and transport it from root to shoot through the phloem. Once in place Manganese is not translocated from older leaves to new shoots.

Essential in photosynthesis, the most spectacular visual indicators of Manganese deficiency are chlorosis which appears on leaves (sugar beet or soybean for instance) and can turn to necrosis, white spots on cereals leaves (cereals). Plants suffering a lack of manganese can show internodes shortening or growth problems due to reduced nitrogen metabolism.

The main purpose of manganese application is to correct the nutrition of manganese-sensitive crops grown on naturally and permanently manganese-deficient soils which occupy large areas around the world. Indeed, Manganese deficiencies are found in various soils where Manganese divalent caption (Mn2+) is trapped (high-pH, organic, clay soils) or lixiviated (sandy, light soils). Other factors causing this deficiency are high levels of Calcium, Iron and Magnesium which all share the same divalent status and compete for space on the soil particle. Liming, phosphate and manure “tie up” as well the Manganese in an unavailable form.

A wide range of industrial crops are known to be sensitive to manganese deficiency, which can greatly affect their growth and hence their yield. Citrus, cereals, soybean, peanut, cotton, tobacco, sugar cane are amongst the most important crops regularly Manganese treated. More recently, manganese showed very good response on glyphosate tolerant crops.

Our Manganese sulfate monohydrate, Tecmangam, is the most common Manganese fertilizer thanks to its dry and granulated form, its water-solubility, and its high economic return. Manganese carbonate (MnCO3) and Manganese nitrate solution (Mn(NO3)2) are as well used in fertilization for their beneficial chemical properties.

Erachem_Agrochemicals_Fungicides

Fungicides, in order to protect herbs and plants, need high quality minerals, especially Manganese and Phosphates. In fact, Manganese helps control the proliferation of diseases caused by fungi infecting many crops. It has other features which help to protect the environment from mite population in citrus and provide the required minerals for green and healthy plants.
