ENERGY (3-0-1) is a product derived from traditional and organic ingredients, including plant extracts (kelp and yucca) and humic acid. ENERGY can be used throughout the plant’s life cycle to enhance nutrient uptake, root development and stress tolerance. The organic components stimulate plant vitality, fruit quality and flavor.
Key Ingredients in ENERGY: > Humic Acid: One of the most important roles humic acid plays in horticulture is the ability to act as a chelating agent to the micronutrients. This allows the plant to uptake these nutrients much more readily and efficiently. >Kelp: Sea kelp contains an abundance of naturally occurring growth hormones (cytokinins, auxins, and gibberellins) which enhance cell division and cell enlargement, as well as aiding in the development of chloroplasts. >Yucca: Yucca contains natural wetting agents called saponins, which make water wetter by breaking the polarity of the water molecule. When adding yucca extracts to the nutrients and water it allows for better penetration of the soil (or soilless) surface and dispersion at the root zone. Thus, the nutrients are able to be used more efficiently and quickly by the plant. >Calcium: Calcium is needed in large amounts during the entire growing cycle. In the early growth stages, calcium aids in the formation of cell walls and membranes, which helps to strengthen and thicken cell walls. Increased thickness of cell walls improves pathogen resistance and creates a stronger plant stalk.
ENERGY (3-0-1) can be applied as a root drench in any type of growing media. The basic rate is 4 ml per gallon of water when feeding during the vegetative growth stage and 1 ml per gallon when feeding during the flower stage.
