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.
