Carbon/Carbohydrate/Mineral

General Information

 Carbon - All life on Earth is built upon carbon and carbon-based compounds. DNA, RNA, and protein all use carbon in their "backbones" to link all the functional groups together and there are only 3 non-mineral nutrients that plants use: hydrogen, oxygen and carbon (water included as H2O).

 Carbohydrate -  Any of a group of organic compounds that includes sugars, starches, celluloses, and gums and serves as a major energy source. These compounds are produced by photosynthetic plants and contain only carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, usually in the ratio 1:2:1.

 Mineral - An inorganic element, such as calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, or zinc, that is essential to the nutrition of humans, animals, and plants.

 

In agricultural applications, carbon-based compounds made up of multiple glucoses, organic acids and colloidal minerals can dramatically benefit both nutrient recycling and plant growth. Easy to apply, low volume formulations that can be either foliar or soil applied and are able to blend with all types of fertilizers and herbicides are the key.

 These specialized formulations can be used to:

·          Improve photosynthesis, resulting in higher plant brix levels and better yields.

·          Chelate fertilizer solutions, making them more available to the plant.

·          Boost soil Azotobacter nitrogen production.

·          Help plants overcome stress from hail or frost.

·          Help crops recover from herbicide shock, especially soybeans.

·          Feed soil microbes, which then convert nutrients in the soil into plant food.

·          Breakdown crop residue and help build humus, best applied during the off season.

·          Stimulate amino acid and protein production in the plant.

·          Can increase nodulization in legumes by supplying carbohydrate to plant.

·          Opens stomata (plant leaf cells) to accept foliar fertilizer applications.

·          Work as a chemical carrier and wetting agent, entering plants at cellular level.

·          Stimulate mycorrhizal growth in plant root systems, assists in nutrient flow.

 

A properly applied carbon product that is “fully-loaded” can make a profitable difference!
