How the SoilBiotics® Growth System Works

SoilBiotics Conventional and Organic Growth Systems are designed so that they may increase or enhance micronutrient uptake in the soil and plant. The Growth System Products do this by improving overall plant health, which result in increased plant resistance, and better yields. 

 

The polycyclic functional groups (COOH, OH, HO, OOH) on Humic, Fulvic, and Ulmic Acid molecules, have the ability to isolate a Hydrogen (H) ion.  This changes their charge from negative to positive, or positive to negative (a polar charge is occuring), depending on the soils needs.  This allows the polycyclic groups to attract ions or cations. 

 

For example, these functional groups can change their charge depending on the soils needs by movement of the Hydrogen (H) ion.  Carbon Based Acids, ie:  Fulvic, Humic, and Ulmic, are then in place to release tied up nutrients from plant residue in the soil, allowing the growing plant to uptake the newly released nutrients.

 

 The electrical, or amphoteric, features of the Growth System Products will influence the chemical reactions.  Complex organic acids, carbon based acids, are involved in three specific chemical reactions:
 

1.  Electrostatic Attraction: When you rub a balloon on your hair and then the balloon sticks to the wall, that is electrostatic attraction.  This is the force which holds the electrons in orbit around the nucleus. This attracts nutrients to the root zone, facilitating uptake.

 

2.  Complex Chelation:   Is a process in which macro and micronutrients are broken down so they are readily available to the plant.  Nutrients become more available with chelation.  With the Growth System Products, nutrients such as copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, and zinc, are more readily available to the plant.
 

3.  3.    3.  Water Bridging:   Growth System Products improve the mobility of nutrient ions through the soil solution to the roots.  This mechanism also helps reduce leaching of plant nutrients into the subsoil. 

When a soil has electrostatic attraction, trace minerals are held in the soil and remain available.  They are protected from leaching into the subsoil.  Growth System Products create ions with a positive charge (cations) allowing them to be readily available in the soil, facilitating trasport of 1) nutrients in the plant roots, and 2) exchange for other metals.   exexa;ldskjf;al

  1.  Electrical charged sites of the Growth System Products function to dissolve and bind trace minerals, this is a chelation process. Scientific methods that prove the chelation of minerals, can be shown with x-ray diffraction and infrared analysis.  Chelation of these nutrients, ie:  copper, iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, and calcium, minimizes any toxicity when an overabundance is present, and prevents nutrients from leaching.   This enhanced availability increases the nutrient uptake.

2.  The chelation of heavy toxic metal elements within the soil can also be influenced by the Growth System Products. When toxic metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium are present in the soil, the chelation that the Growth System Products promote ties up the unwanted metals and makes them unavailable to the plant.
 
The Growth System Products will grab and hold onto the newly applied fertilizer just as it frees up minerals already in the soil. This way, less is lost to the environment and more is made available to the plant.  This is how SoilBiotics Growth System Products increase the transfer of minerals into the plant.
 
Plants have a natural defense system already built into their genetics that offers a fabulous resistance to pests and diseases.  This is only true if the plant is healthy and proper nutrition is available, which can be achieved by SoilBiotics Conventional and Organic Growth System Products.
 
SoilBiotics Conventional and Organic Growth System Products have been proven to work in greatly varied soil types and with numerous plant species.
