Nature uses a small molecule – Trehalose-6-Phosphate as a signalling molecule to balance carbohydrate (esp sucrose) concentration in the plant. It’s one of the critical mechanisms to link carbon assimilation and growth in higher plants:

  • Enhanced root development
  • Improved shoot development
  • Enhanced chlorophyll per unit area
  • Improved stress management via optimising sucrose allocation
  • Increased yield via grain and oil management

Unium has focused on the late season applications for maximising the relocation of carbon into yield as carbohydrates or oil, although it has proved very interesting as a seed treatment.

This area of crop physiology has attracted a lot of interest in the last few years demonstrating improved crop performance under ideal or stressed, in particular moisture, situations.

3 Alo T6P was born out of inspiration of this research and has demonstrated from proof of concept, via replicated field trials and farmer experiences to deliver the benefits the research suggested.

  • Improved germination

  • Enhanced root and shoot mass

  • Increased leaf chlorophyll concentration

  • Enhanced crop stress tolerance especially moisture

  • Increased yield from enhanced carbon relocation

  • Excellent return on investment 9:1 with an 87% performance greater than break even

  • A unique carbohydrate signalling complex designed to improve crop production through enhanced carbohydrate management (T6P mechanism) within plants

  • Liquid foliar treatment

  • 10 Litres with an application rate of 1 l/ha

  • Carbohydrate signalling complex

  • Tested within replicated trials to demonstrate complete crop safety and tank mix ability

T6P has been shown to be a regulator of plant carbohydrate management acting as a signalling molecule that regulates many important metabolic and developmental processes within plants.

It is widely accepted that it is an indicator of sucrose status in plants, as it inhibits SnRK1 protein kinase which acts as a metabolite sensor to constantly link supply and energy demand.

T6P is proposed to regulate the flowering architecture and branching as well as the relocation of carbon into grain or into oil within the kernel or seed.

In short T6P functions as a key regulator of plant growth and development by regulating the central carbon metabolism especially in response to environmental stressors.
