The core of the Carbotecnia range of products is Low Molecular Weight Carboxylic Acids (L.M.W.)
Yield increasing, marketable organ quality and environmental friendliness, are the immediate effects after using these organic molecules.
Why Carboxylic Acids?
Carboxylic Acids are synthetized in a natural way, by plants. The effects produced by Carbotecnia’s L.M.W. Carboxylic Acids, are similar to those that in a naturall way, are carrying out by the plant physiology.
They are powerful complexing agents, providing a better use of the elements which are joined with, that when these elements are applied as an inorganic salt, or are joined with other complexing agents.
The main advantages of fertilizers based on low molecular weight carboxylic acids (organic) are higher fruit quality, higher yield and enhanced mobility of nutrients into de plant.
Why Low Molecular Weigh (L.M.W.)?
Organic acids have large differences in both, their size and their ability to form assimilable complexes by plants. Depending on their chemical characteristics and their molecular size we can represent them as follows:
Low molecular weight carboxylic acids:
Greater effectiveness by percentage of nutrient compared to other complexants
Lignosulphonic (fulvic) acids:
L.M.W. Carboxylic Acids significantly increase the ability to complex nutrients (Ca + 2, Mg + 2, Fe +2, etc.), favoring its transport in and out of the plant, and its assimilation.
They increase the plant osmotic pressure, increasing the water flow and transporting nutrients and photo-assimilates (sugars) to the vegetable organs that require it.
L.M.W. Carboxylic Acids promote the acid pH of the nutrient solution naturally. They don't increase its aggressiveness and don't add elements that may disrupt the desired balance of the fertilizer solution.
This kind of organic acids are very little or not ionized, they don't have ionic charge and can penetrate or be absorbed by the plant without any constraint.
How do B.P.M. carboxylic acids operate?
These organic acids have a double function; they act as COMPLEXING AGENTS of the element or elements that carry with them, and they set up together a TECH-NUTRIENT with a specific effect inside the plant.
The high-tech CARBOTECNIA fertilizers are designed to enhance the activity of the plant by optimizing parameters such as:
LMW benefit in the soil
Immediate and lasting availability of the nutrient, avoiding blockages in the soil.
They are natural complexes that plants recognize in nutritional assimilation.
The adaptation of the rhizosphere to achieve favourable conditions for an effective absorption.
Soil pH regulators near the roots.
Zero phytotoxicity. Zero waste.
They favor the adaptation of the vegetable to unfavorable environments (saline soils, saline-alkali, etc.).
LMW Benefits in the plant
Primitive plants such as algae had no roots to absorb water; the organs responsible for the nutrient absorption were the leaves, a feature that has not been lost over time.
Foliar feeding is a fertilizer application method widely used throughout the world, and an important tool for crop management.
Used correctly it is more respectful with the environment and more efficient than traditional fertilization via soil or edaphic because the nutrients are applied directly on the tissues (localized use) and in specific periods (timely use) of maximum demand of the crop.
