Sodium Molybdate is a white crystalline powder.
38.8% elemental molybdenum
Sodium Molybdate mixes well with other products. Because such small quantities of molybdenum are usually required good quality mixing is essential.
Segregation may occur when mixed with product with differences of particle size.
Provides plants with a readily available supply of molybdenum
Is particularly important for nitrogen fixation by leguminous plants
Minute quantities product are required for optimum legume growth
Sodium molybdate is a readily soluble source of molybdenum essential for optimum legume growth. Minute quantities of this product are required for optimum legume growth, therefore good mixing with other fertilisers is essential.
Sodium Molybdate is used to provide plants with a readily available supply of molybdenum. It is particularly important for nitrogen fixation by leguminous plants such as clover, lucerne, peas and beans.
Molybdenum is important for the rhizobia in clover nodules to assist in nitrogen fixation and for plants to use nitrogen.
In animals, molybdenum is important for some enzyme activity and for iron storage in tissues.
Application is made by mixing this product with other fertilisers e.g. superphosphate. Typically 0.3kg (300g) of product is mixed with a tonne of super when spreading at 250kg super/ha. This equates to an application rate of 75g sodium molybdate/ha.
Application rates may range from 75 to 125 g sodium molybdate/ha.
Sodium Molybdate is a relatively safe product to store and handle. Bags should be tightly sealed and stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
