Andermatt’s Plant Vitality range consists of a comprehensive basket of biostimulant solutions.
“Biostimulants can assist growers to ‘produce more with less’. Biostimulants target specific natural growth processes within plants. Increasing or decreasing these specific functions unlocks more significant potential for growth, yield, quality, stress tolerance and more.”
Dr Brendon Neumann,
Andermatt Global Product Portfolio Manager
V12 Biostimulant range
The V12 Biostimulant range is based on the 12 essential components of plant vitality, ie. the engine that drives plant growth.
8 KEY ELEMENTS
1. Boron 2. Silicon 3. Calcium 4. Nitrogen
5. Magnesium 6. Phosphorous 7. Carbon 8. Potassium
4 KEY ELEMENTS
9. Amino Acids 10. Vitamins 11. Micronutrients
The Plant Nutrition Cycle – 8 Key elements
1. CALCIUM drives uptake of other elements & is essential for cell division
2. SILICA creates a well-functioning transport system for improved water & nutrient uptake
3. Which requires NITROGEN for formation of new DNA, amino acids, etc.
4. Amino acids form chlorophyll which is activated by MAGNESIUM to for capturing light and photosynthesis
5. Light energy is transformed with into ATP using PHOSPHORUS, the plant’s energy carrier
6. ATP drives production of sugars from CARBON based building blocks captured from the air (CO₂)
7. POTASSIUM is the electrolyte that drives the transport of sugars through the plant and creates the mechanism by which all nutrients enter plant cells
8. BORON creates the sap pressure that drives uptake and movement of all nutrients
The Plant Nutrition Cycle – 4 Key Drivers
AMINO ACIDS are involved in plant stress physiology and can help plants to better tolerate/recover from stress conditions.
VITAMINS: Vitamin C contains antioxidant properties which reduce damage from free radicles and play a role in regulating cell division. Vitamin B1 improves photosynthetic efficiency, root growth and stimulates Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR).
MICRONUTRIENTS perform unique and key functions in plant metabolism (Zn, Mn, Co, Fe etc.)
BIOSTIMULANTS play a role in stimulating a range of plant processes and improving plant efficiency.
