Ferticell Nutri-Plus consists of unicellular algae cells and amino acids which are completely neutral and biologically active, making assimilation of nutrients rapid and complete. The amino acids are incorporated into the metabolic cycle of the crop, saving the plant energy for increased production.
The high Glycine content of the product (which constitutes the first link in the synthesis of chlorophyll), plus Proline, Alanine, and Arginine are an important source of Nitrogen. These amino acids provide a “value added” protein Nitrogen which is essential for balancing the four forms of Nitrogen in crop inputs, contributing to the savings of nitrogenous fertilizing requirements. The high levels of Aspartic Acid and Glutamic Acid are extremely important in this product as these amino acids are the precursors for the formation of several other amino acids internally in the plant.
All amino acids do not have the same characteristics inside the plant, and are required in different quantities. The proportion varies by species and the physiological state of the plant. The most suitable time for applying Ferticell Nutri-Plus is when crops show specific needs such as growth, firming, and increased size of the fruit, or when frost, drought, disease or pests are prevalent. Ferticell Nutri-Plus may also be used in a frost protection program for a farm.
