Greenol and other chelated Fe & nutrient sources
I mentioned earlier a reference to Greenol in TAG. It's
4:6 "The limiting Factor: Nutrition - Part 3" by Emmit W. Stewart
on page 204 he mentions Greenol as a way to supply chelated Fe
to his plants. It worked but he gave it up in favor of Ferroplant.
The Greenol produced a "villainous yellow fog" for about 5 hours
after addition. He attributed this to a reaction with CaCO3
producing a precipitate of "iron carbonate". That sounds like
guess work but not very desirable.
A little more hunting turned up the following references in TAG 6:2

Please bear in mind that this info is about four years old and I
hope that I have not introduced any typographical errors.
