Improve crop phosphorus use efficiency and deliver calcium through the leaf into the plant
In combination with Verda Technology – a complex containing Pyroglutamic Acid (PGA, or as some call it pidolic acid) and another metabolite, they perform two functions – nitrogen assimilation and carbon sequestration creating the best balanced technology.
PGA -was discovered by Dr Pat Unkefer, at the Los Alamos Research Institute, where it won several prestigious awards.
Unium are working closely with Dr Unkefer to bring more leading technologies available to help growers maximise their crop returns.

Phosphite (phosphonate) has been at the centre of our developments for the last 25 years. Collectively we have developed the best formulations, the safest and most efficacious products to deliver continual performance in a broad range of crops.
With ACALSA we have superseded previous products, outperforming the current market leader by 0.2 t/ha or 1.8%.
They are a true biostimulant delivering a multitude of effects depending upon dose, timing, programme and the crop.
- Increased root and shoot development
- Increased root exudation
- Enhanced frost tolerance
- Increased nutrient uptake
- Enhanced secondary metabolism via the shikimic acid pathway to produce folate and amino acids
- Improved flavours, colours and brix levels
- Increased grain set and ultimate yield
