WHAT IS AGT 50?
OMRI & FIBL LISTED
AGT-50™ is a liquid-concentrate, prehistoric, trace mineral, and organic acid complex harvested and manufactured in the USA.
It is used as a soil amendment, soilless nutrient activator, and animal feed supplement.
AGT-50 is harvested from AgTonik's source deposit in the US. The deposit is of organic origin from millions of years of plant and animal matter composting. It is then cured and the constituents are extracted by a pure water proprietary process yielding a high fulvic acid molecular concentrate.
These nutrients are being depleted in our soils by poor farming practices and synthetic fertilizers that do not consider the importance of biodiverse soil, plentiful microbes, and trace elements.
Our products have fulvic mineral potencies from 80H to 10H on a hydrometer scale. We can customize formulations anywhere from 1.5 to 12.3 pH.
All of our liquid fulvic products will remain suspended in solution. Plus the naturally acidic pH maintains the product’s antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HUMATES, HUMIC ACID, AND FULVIC ACID
Fulvic acid is a classification for the smallest molecules on the humic acid spectrum. Both humic acid and fulvic acid are considered humate -- which is the result of organic matter decomposition and its resulting microbial activity with organic acid development.
AGT-50 differs from humic acid and other fulvic acids like the popular derivitive of the coal industry, leonardite, in that AgTonik's deposit is fulvic dominant and has very little humic acid. It also contains both free-form fulvic and fulvic molecules chelated or bound to amino acids, minerals, and other elements, known as fulvates. AGT-50 has naturally occurring micronutrients like 33 different organic acids, flavonoids, which are antioxidants that improve commercial feeds.
Humic acid is an important component for plants and animals -- AGT-50 can cleanly augment a humate product for even better results.
4 REASONS THAT SET AGT-50 APART
MORE PRODUCT (CONCENTRATED)
LESS PLASTIC BOTTLES
LESS SHIPPING COSTS
COMPATIBLE WITH COMMERCIAL FEEDS
Natural Source +
Natural Extraction =
At our deposit, the humate is excavated using low-impact equipment such as
a small backhoe. Once excavated, the raw material goes through a lengthy curing process. After curing, the material is extracted with purified water only. By eliminating harsh chemical use in the manufacturing process, the final product – while not USDA certified organic since it is a mineral and isn’t cultivated like crops or raised like livestock - complies with organic standards.
Most fulvic acid products are extracted from leonardite or lignite coal, making them the by-product of fossil fuels. These products rely on fossil fuel reserves and require the use of chemical hydroxides to lift the fulvic fractions and minerals from the source material.
High Fulvic Acid Content
AGT-50™ contains the highest fulvic acid content in a liquid product of 4.5%, as validated by the standardized Lamar AOAC Vol.97 test method*.
Most light yellow or black fulvic acid mineral varieties contain less than 1% fulvic acid. Extractions from black coals are predominately humic acid and rarely contain more than 1% fulvic acid extracted by a chemical hydroxide.
By contrast, AGT-50™ is low in humic acid which makes it easy for farmers to use it separately across different plant and animal applications and varying nutrient schedules.
The short-chain molecule of fulvic acid will not clog equipment.
AGT-50™ contains a complex array of total dissolved solids that far surpass the number of components in other fulvic acid products.
AGT-50™ is not diluted with water, which allows the farmer to adjust accordingly for crop specifications or animal weight. (See p.2)
A Discovery in 2019
In 2019, twenty-two organic origin flavones including Huperzine-A, Genistein, Naringin, and Resveratrol were identified in AGT-50™ by a third-party lab using Mass-Spec instrumentation.
This unprecedented identification of flavones further confirms the organic origin of our material and AgTonik’s clean, propriety process that transfers the constituents from our into our final product.
Phytochemicals contribute to both plant and animal defense mechanisms including an enhanced immune response and metabolic stimulation.
4X More VALUE
AGT-50™’s cost per elemental serving is significantly less expensive than any other fulvic acid product on the market.
Competing products contain approximately 1% elemental FA* compared to a fulvic acid content of 4.5% in AGT-50™ and they are lower in overall nutrient density.
Buying a concentrated product has a lower carbon footprint, which is good for the planet.
