If you’re a commercial grower, you know not all fertilizers and insecticides are equal. More and more farmers around the world, from the U.S. to Africa and all farms in between, are realizing the benefits of a foliar fertilizer and pesticide that could be beneficial for the environment and essential insects (bees). AgriPOWER® HGDF is our organic-based dry powder fully water-soluble Complete Plant Nutrition & Soil Rejuvenation System. In anecdotal trials, HGDF delivered richer quality, healthier produce, and higher yields. AgriX SHIELD is our organic-based insecticide/fungicide in one.
Not only are organic-based products more effective, but they are also cost effective for large agricultural operations in comparison to chemical products. Because of the way you apply AgriPOWER® and the way crops absorb it, there could be less waste than with other fertilizers. Less waste means you run a more cost effective operation.
And of course, by using organic-based products instead of chemicals, you are helping the planet as well. Below, we’ve listed some of the top reasons to use AgriPOWER® on your farm.
Why AgriPOWER® Foliar Fertilizer?
FACT: Of most Chemical fertilizers that are heavily laid onto the soil, just 50% or less is actually absorbed by the plant. The remaining fertilizer leaches into the ground and into our waterways.
FACT: Plants absorb essential elements through their leaves. The absorption takes place through their stomata and through their epidermis. Transport is characteristically faster through the stomata, but total absorption may be as great through the epidermis.
FACT: Leaves have transcuticular pores (i.e. pores between cell structures) and stomata through which, AgriPOWER® foliar spray may enter the plant. The transcuticular pores are on both the upper and lower surfaces of the leaf and are open all the time, so foliar-applied nutrients predominantly enter through these pores. The uptake efficiency is greater through the leaves than through the roots.
FACT: In the long term, AgriPOWER® may aid in soil rejuvenation by potentially improving soil water-holding capacity – thus fostering the impetus for soil micro-organism re-establishing colonies, and potentially aids in fauna and flora growth, a vital property for soil rejuvenation.
FACT: With AgriPOWER®, the degree of leaching is very low, due to the fact that most of the foliar application is absorbed – the balance of which, 30%, is sprayed on the soil – leaving a negligible amount to leach into the ground, but this amount is more than sufficient to help in re-establishing the soil micro-organisms that further aid in Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF).
