- Adds size and weight to flowering plants
- Enhances Phosphate interaction with other plant nutrients
- Improves and regenerates beneficial soil micro-organism population, which in turn produce organic acids, humus and plant nutrients
- Dramatically enhances Phosphates function in plants, which in turn enhances fruiting, flowering and plant sugar production.
How it Works :
The purpose of fertilization is to feed soil micro-organisms, enrich the soil and supply essential nutrients which supports the growth and development of plants. By providing a carbon source in fertility programs, plants and beneficial soil micro-organisms reduce their energy expenditure in seeking out the Carbon sources required for their growth and development.
Plants require specific carbon sources in order to utilize both nitrogen and phosphates. Nitrogen MUST be combined with hydrogen, oxygen and carbon in order to form the proteins required to develop new plant tissues. Plant growth hormones are forms of protein which also require carbon to form the carboxylic acids required for their formation. Dr. Arden Anderson has commented: “Nitrogen alone does not constitute protein or guarantee its eventual participation in a protein molecule. The other building block, the carbohydrates, plus the phosphate catalyst, must be present with the nitrogen, thus the addition of carbohydrate to fertilizer.” The phosphate cycle is the primary driving catalyst in all living things and is essential for photosynthesis.
Carbon and more specifically carbon in the form of specific sugars are an essential component of sugars, the effectiveness of phosphate increases by as much as 100 times over using phosphate alone. Carbon in and of itself, is the element that conveys life to all things. Carbon is the energy storehouse for all biological systems. The greater amount of biologically active carbon, the greater the energy reserves for the plants. Additionally, in agricultural applications, carbon buffers the soil, improves soil tilt and increases the nutrient and water holding capacity of soils.
