Amino Acids are the basic building blocks used to form specific proteins in plants, from this they are essential in many components of plant physiology:

  • chlorophyll production
  • vitamin synthesis
  • stimulating flowering
  • fruit and seed set
  • increase fruit, grain quality – colour, flavour, brix etc
  • chelation and micronutrient transportation in the plant
  • stress reduction
  • cell wall stabilisation

Exogenous applications of L-amino acids (L being the active form) have been proven to support the plant in these functions. Making amino acids is an energy intensive process.  So, providing additional L-amino acids via the roots or leaf tissue ensures the plant has plenty of materials for building these important proteins.

This means more energy is available for growth and differentiation.  It is critical to apply the right amount as part of a programme as you cannot predict upcoming stress periods.  We are working hard to deliver this as part of a nutrient and stand-alone amino acid programme at an affordable price.

  • Improved stress tolerance

  • Increased chlorophyll content

  • Increased root and shoot biomass

  • Maximised  yield

  • Increased yield response of 5% from 3 trial comparisons

  • Excellent return on investment of 7 : 1 with a 100% performance greater than break even

  • A unique high quality plant derived amino acid complex with 2-4x the concentration of other products available.  The quality of extraction is the key to a high grade formulation

  • 100% soluble powder containing only the fully utilisable L-a form of the amino acids

  • 10 Kg bag with an application rate of 0.5Kg – 1.0 Kg/ha

  • Free Amino acid complex

  • Tested with replicated trials to ensure crop safety and on farm evaluation for full tank mixability

As amino acids are critical in many processes they have a multitude of mode of actions. Efficient crop production is all about preventing yield loss from the genetic potential and amino acids can mitigate against stress-during the growing season by saving the plants energy (required to make amino acids) to tolerate the stress and have reserves for when the stress reduces.
