6 Key Actions
for Plants
and Animals

Small Molecules

The fraction of humic acid known as fulvic acid is made up of much smaller molecules than humic acid.

The small mineral salts of fulvic acid are readily absorbed into the root hairs by cation exchange, diffusion, and active transport carrying with them trace minerals, elements, and other acids to feed plants and animals.

Trace Elements

Trace element nutrition is becoming more important in agriculture as continuous cropping is depleting soils of these nutrients. Trace elements reduce the phenomenon known as "hidden Hunger" in plants -- plants can be in need of nutrients before they show deficiencies. 

 

There is a similar occurrence in animals where micronutrients support so many biological processes that, when missing in the diet, an animal's health may be compromised before symptoms are evident. 

Chelated Minerals

Some fulvic molecules chelate (trap) minerals creating fulvates that transport and release minerals within the cell.

fulvic molecules also exist in a free-form state or an acid that has no mineral attached. Free-form fulvic is ideal as a nutrient activator because it optimizes the nutrients in an existing feed program.

There are also many forms of minerals in AGT-50. For example, the iron in AGT-50 includes iron oxide, iron sulfate, iron amino acid chelates, iron fulvate, and more. This means AGT-50 cannot be synthesized, copied, or reverse engineered.

Organic Acids

Even if you're using an NPK fertilizer or just common feed, adding natural organic acids to your nutrient program will turn insoluble minerals into bioavailable molecules that plants and animals can use. 

 

Organic acids perform specialized functions that support biological survival. They promote the delivery of minerals and elements, stimulate root development, hasten growth for efficient nutrient uptake and processes, reduce stress response from drought and temperature changes, and promote stronger stalks, stems, and larger fruit.

Organic acids aid in the solubilization of mineral elements bound in the soil making them available through chelation. The presence of carboxylate and phenolate groups gives fulvic acids the ability to form chelate mineral complexes with cations such as Mg2+, Ca2+, Fe2+, and Fe3+ which can then be absorbed by plant roots.

In animals, organic acids enhance the feed conversion rate for weight gain, lower infant mortality, boost stronger immune response, and fertility.

Phytochemicals

Phytochemicals have critical functions in both plants and animals, playing important roles in growth and defense against pathogens.

AGT-50 has 22 flavonoids -- powerful antioxidants

that mitigate oxidative damage, reducing environmental stress like temperature fluctuation, drought, sun damage, and inflammation. 

They are needed for plants to create vitamins, enzymes, proteins, and biosynthesize additional phytochemicals.

Many phytochemicals function as activators of enzymatic reactions, gene expression, and mitochondrial genesis for both plants and animals. 

pH - CEC
Electrolytes &
Polyelectrolytes

Unlike humic acid, fulvic acid is viable throughout a broad pH spectrum making it compatible with all nutrient formulas, soil conditions, and feedstock.

 

The pH of AGT-50 is within a range of 2.9-3.8 that resists the growth of microbes, fungus, and bacteria.

CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity) facilitates the absorption of mineral salts into plants via root hairs.

 

The ionic charge of fulvic acid also produces electrolytes and polyelectrolytes that assist in permeating cell walls, osmoregulation, and mitochondria genesis.

Fulvic acid in its purified form has a CEC of 1400 mEq, much higher than humic acid.

 

(When in the presence of other acids, minerals, and polyphenols such as in AGT-50, that number will be lower, as expected.)

The fraction of humic acid known as fulvic acid is made up of much smaller molecules than humic acid.

The small mineral salts of fulvic acid are readily absorbed into the root hairs by cation exchange, diffusion, and active transport carrying with them trace minerals, elements, and other acids to feed plants and animals.
