|Abstract(s):||[Excerpt] Iron is a crucial micro-nutrient for plants, but is insoluble in calcareous soils, which leads to iron deficiency (iron-induced chlorosis), with losses in crops production . In order to overcome the aforementioned problem, a wide range of synthetic organic chelators belonging to the class of aminopolycarboxylic acids (APCAs) have been used to supplement soils due to their ability to form stable and water-soluble chelates with iron at pH values above 7.0 . However, the fate of the referred molecules in the environment conducts to its accumulation in soils and water due to the chemical and biological recalcitrant nature of these compounds . [...]|
