What is it?
It’s a supplement having a role in the growth and development of cultured plants. It’s also known as folate or B9 Vitamin.
Folic acid helps to fulfill the deficiency of folates in crops. Any disturbance in a plant's folate metabolism leads to severe growth inhibition and low productivity.
It has an essential role in amino acid metabolism and nucleic acid synthesis in plants.
They can be supplemented to staple crops like rice, potato, and maize that contain insufficient amounts of folates.
