Nutrition / Formulation Overview
Many agricultural economists declare soil and plant nutrition to be the number one return on investment in farming. Most plant physiologists, pathologists, and microbiologists believe that proper nutrition contributes more to plant structure, health, and disease resistance than any other factor. Meanwhile, soil scientists agree that balanced nutritional inputs speed decomposition of complex elements making them available for plants to metabolize. Therefore, nutrition plays a critical role in overall plant performance, yield, and profitability.
Plants function like factories. Roots anchor, assimilate, and transport available nutrients upward through the plant’s vascular system. Conversely, plant top structure acts like a tower fitted with solar collectors (leaves) positioned to absorb sunlight. Light energy then converts to chemical energy as photosynthetic pigments use water and CO2 and produce carbohydrates. Fruit, vegetable, nut, and other tissue type production…is a by-product of sunlight, water, nutrients, and necessary atmospheric gasses (i.e. oxygen, CO2) coming together through simultaneous decomposition, photosynthetic, and metabolic processes within and around the plant. Compromising or losing any one of these core building blocks (i.e. light, water, nutrients, atmospheric gasses, etc.) will either temporarily interrupt or halt the production process altogether.
As a wise old investment counselor once said, “one cannot spend the interest on money they never saved.” Robbing your plants of quality food will leave you holding an empty bag.
Maximizing plant performance and crop yields requires the use of easily decomposed, highly available, chemically pure elemental nutrient forms. Such ingredients cost more initially, but end up being less expensive when all plant growth, production, and fruit quality factors are considered. One cannot pull out a silk purse, when they began with a pig’s ear. Therefore, those committed to quality crop production must start with the best nutrient formulations available.
