One of the Best Additives for Aquaponics & Aquaculture

The fulvic acid complex AGT-50 is one of the best additives for aquaponics and aquaculture like water lentils. The complex fulvic, amino and organic acids in AGT-50 optimize fish and plant health. Scientific research shows fulvic acid, organic acids, phytochemicals, and trace minerals result in better gut health, weight gain, muscle to fat density, and feed conversion, all while simultaneously boosting growth and vigor.

From some recent research, Brunno da Zilva Cerozi wrote that “Fulvic acid increases iron bioavailability in aquaponic systems: Theoretical designs and practical considerations to prevent iron deficiency in plants.”

The study states “Plants grown in aquaponics frequently develop iron deficiency, which is generally corrected via supplementation with iron chelates. However, the solid waste excreted by fish contains considerable amounts iron, which are lost in the system by precipitation of insoluble iron oxides. Thus, the present study proposed the use of fulvic acid (FA), a humic substance with metal complexing capacity, to prevent iron precipitation and enhance its bioavailability in the aquaculture wastewater.

Fulvic acid appears to have a practical effect on transporting low-soluble iron from fish tanks, allowing it to be intercepted by plant roots, potentially preventing the development of iron deficiency on plants grown in aquaponic systems.”

Also see our article Maximize Growth in Aquaculture or Aquaponic Systems which states “Fulvic acid is exactly what aquaculture and aquaponic systems need to achieve optimal results. A fulvic mineral complex can greatly assist production efforts affecting everything from increased growth to greater harvest size, from better feed conversion to increased immune defense.”

To assist with achieving optimal performance, we recommend considering the outstanding results of the above scientific findings. Science has proven again and again that a well-rounded health and growth program can no doubt help reach your desired outputs.
