Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone is made by converting meat and bone meal and dried blood into a highly concentrated liquid colloidal suspension and then adding trace elements to provide a carefully balanced formulation of N:P:K. The minerals and trace elements help to ensure healthy soil and healthy plants.
The blood and bone provides organic material, protein, amino acids and cholesterol, which feed plants and the soil’s micro-organisms, an integral part of the organic cycle. The soil organisms break down organic material into humus, release locked up nutrients, as well as improving the fixation and release of nitrogen and the soil structure.
Regular use of Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone helps to increase the number of earthworms, soil microbes and bacteria working in biologically active soil.
The formulation of Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone allows some of the nutrients to be immediately available to the plant through the foliage as well as the roots. The remaining nutrients, including the finely ground bone particles, attach to the foliage and permeate the soil dissolving gradually, slowly releasing nutrients to continue to feed plants through the foliage and the soil.
Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone is a totally balanced fertiliser, which can be used as a total replacement fertiliser or as a supplement to a conventional fertiliser program
Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone can be applied using conventional ground or air application equipment and can be applied through overhead irrigation or other fertigation systems.
Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone will supply the plant with all major nutrients and trace elements and also, by making the cells elongate and divide more rapidly, ensure the plants get away to an early, healthier start. This means, potentially, early and higher quality yields.
Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone also contains two naturally occurring growth promotants, Gibberellins and Triacontanol. These have been widely proven to significantly increase growth rates, crop yields and plant health and they especially contribute to recovery from stress as in transplant shock or adverse climatic conditions. These growth regulators stimulate the plant to take up and use all available nutrients.
TRIA is a naturally occurring plant hormone found in all plants, but has particularly high concentrations in Roses and Lucerne. Tria causes plant cells to divide, promotes early root growth and will increase the rate of photosynthesis. This means that plants can still grow to their full potential even in less than ideal growing conditions.
GA is also a naturally occurring growth hormone. In the plant, Gibberellic Acid causes the plant cells to elongate. It helps promote flowering and fruit set and is widely used in horticulture, grape production and pasture crops on its own.
Of particular interest to growers will be the positive effect on crop quality, yields and the Brix/Acid ratio. Several physiological effects have been observed, including rapidly increased levels of reducing sugars, free amino acids and soluble protein. There is a consistent increase in the Nitrogen content of plant samples and in the redistribution of Nitrogen within plants. Also evident are increases in carbohydrate synthesis from the stimulation of photosynthesis and changes in the activity of several enzymes have also been recorded. These factors will make a significant contribution to flavour, appearance and keeping qualities for all crops treated with Growth B&B Liquid Blood and Bone.
