|Spanish term or phrase: monocorrectores|
|a)Correctores de microelementos metálicos:|
en forma de monocorrectores (portadores de un solo metal) para una determinada especificidad, a multicorrectores (portadores de varios metales) necesarios para cubrir las necesidades conocidas de un cultivo determinado a lo largo de su ciclo productivo.
|mono-micronutrient deficiency corrector|
The first web site I gave you uses the term poly-micronutrient deficiency corrector (multicorrector), so I would assume that a mono-micronutrient deficiency corrector would be a monocorrector, although I can't find a site that uses this term. There are many sites for "microelement deficiency corrector," such as the second one I gave you.

|Thank-you John. (And thank-you all) It seems to me "correctors" alone is not used in English. I would use deficiency correctors as you suggest. Could I use mono-deficiency correctors and drop the micronutrient? Claudia |

single nutrient fertilizer
Number of nutrients:
- single-nutrient or straight fertilizers (whether for major, secondary or micro nutrients);
- multinutrient (multiple nutrient) or compound fertilizers, with 2, 3 or more nutrients
Many different fertilizer grades are marketed. For lawn and garden fertilizers, blends of different
sources are common. Despite the availability of many different grades, the N-P-K ratio in a
fertilizer seldom matches the recommended N-P-K ratios suggested by soil tests. Consequently,
some compromise is required when applying fertilizer nutrient recommendations, and one or
more nutrients will need to be over- or underapplied. Single-nutrient fertilizers are also available,
and a separate application of such a fertilizer could be used to supplement an application of a
fertilizer blend that would under- or oversupply a nutrient. Urea (46-0-0), concentrated superphosphate
(0-46-0), and potassium chloride (0-0-60) are examples of single-nutrient fertilizers for
nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, respectively.
Correction of deficiencies during the growing season can be
achieved by very dilute foliar applications of chelated zinc.
