Nitrozyme is a plant
extract which is quality controlled for particular growth hormones. To name a
few - Cytokinins - Auxins - Enzymes - Giberellins - Ethylenes - plus many
HOW IS THE CYTOKININ
HORMONE LEVEL CONTROLLED?
Nitrozyme is produced
using the strictest quality control methods possible. The test used to
determine hormonal activity is state-of-the-art and approved by Government
WHAT IS THE PLANT THAT
NITROZYME IS MADE OF?
The plant from which it is
extracted is Ascophyllum Nodosum and is found in the Northern Atlantic Ocean
and the Norwegian Sea. This plant grows on rocks in sea water, which is as cold
as -20oC in the winter and as warm as 32oC in the summer months
HOW DOES NITROZYME WORK?
Plants progress through a
cycle of growth stages. Using the example of wheat, the plant starts out as a
seed, germinates, goes through the seedling stage, through the three, five and
seven leaf stages, and finally forming a head and producing new seed.
When a plant is under
stress at any given stage of growth, reduced levels of cytokinin growth
hormones are produced. If this reduction occurs at certain key stages of growth
such as the tillering stage, yields can be affected.
By making available extra
hormone to the plant at these stages, you can influence the crops final
Timing of the application
is essential. If you apply a hormone to
a plant, the result will be stimulated growth of the type which the plant is
currently undergoing. If the plant is
forming roots, more root growth can occur. If tillering is underway, more
tillers will be formed. If stem growth is in progress, that is what will
occur. If flowering is in progress more
flowering will occur.
WHAT ABOUT NITROZYME AS A
Nitrozyme is very
effective as a seed treatment. Many gardeners and researchers have been
experimenting with Growth Plus as a seed
treatment because it contains certain hormones which can help promote early
seedling vigor, and up to 40% increase in root mass. More root mass leads to a
healthier and a more vigorous plant.
WHY USE NITROZYME?
Crops under normal growing
conditions achieve only 30-40% of their genetic potential. Growing conditions
such as low or high moisture levels, hot or cold temperature variations, soil
imbalance and nutritional deficiencies contribute to plant stress and result in
underperformance of the crop.
Plants under stress are
unable to produce sufficient cytokinins, the natural plant growth hormones
which are necessary for plant growth, nutrient mobilization and distribution,
germination, cell division, root development, flowering and seed formation.
These naturally occurring hormones have a very pronounced effect on the growth
of plant cells and regulate delicate physiological plant processes.
After many years of
research and field testing, the natural cytokinins in Nitrozyme can be put to
productive use on your plants. Natural cytokinins such as those found in
Nitrozyme will help control and regulate: germination - root development -
nutrition uptake - plant tissue composition - tillering - flowering -seed and
Nitrozyme has been proven
to effectively relieve stress, provide a more vigorous and healthy plant, which
increases yields and profits.
