LOOK at the difference in these two agave plants:

The left plant has been treated with OMEX Zinc 70 and the right plant has had no zinc applied.

Why is Zinc important?
Zinc is involved in the formation and activation of hormones that regulate root development, water uptake, flowering and fruit set. In addition, Zinc plays a major role in the structure and function of the integumentary system, affecting skin elasticity, wound healing and disease suppression.

Deficiency affects fertility, seed production and growth regulation, resulting in stunted growth. Zinc deficiency also impacts on the absorption of water and nutrients from soil, resulting in growth and yield reduction in the plant. Zinc is also known to play a key role in plant disease defence mechanisms.
