Plantmax helps maintain grass colour and sward density and allows us to reduce our total yearly nitrogen input.

Plantmax (AMINO)                                                                     Find out what this symbol means »

Plantmax’s concentrated form contains 21% amino acids and enzymes in a 20% fulvic acid solution.

  • Heightens grass vigour, colour and early sward density
  • Regulates growth in times of increased stress (close mowing, wet or dry/hot conditions)
  • Lifts uptake of potassium and calcium, whilst supressing leaf ‘water’ build up.

Plantmax contains digested seaweed and food residue extracts full of oligosacchorides, amino acids, enzymes and fulvic acids + additional humic acid and casein protein for enhanced rhizosphere microbiology.

1. Spring to early Summer programme

Use Plantmax Spring to early Autumn ahead of stress periods to:

  • Regulate nutrient balance and water uptake within the plant
  • Stimulate photosynthesis and new leaf development
  • Promote root extension rather than leaf elongation

Application: 2, 3 or 4 treatments 21 days apart
20 to 30 litres/hectare (more is better with Plantmax)
In hot conditions 4 to 6 applications, 15 days apart at 10lts/ha.

2. Late season stress treatment

Use Plantmax late season (Autumn) to extend grass performance:

  • Provide complexed natural acids for grass density
  • Stimulate photosynthesis and extend colour

Application: 1 treatment at 20 to 30lts/ha

3. Liquid feed additive

Add Plantmax to liquid and soluble feeds to:

  • Decrease required liquid feed application rates by 20%
  • Increase foliar absorption and chelation of liquid foliar nutrients
  • Build in added plant growth regulators

Application: 10 litres/hectare

*Plantmax may be tank mixed with other nutrient materials

Application rate: 10-30 lts/ha
Dilution: 1:10+ litres water

Recommended Period of Use:
Spring to Autumn


 

Digested organic matter in PLANTMAX 

The digestion process bio-converts vegetable and animal matter (food residue) into their plant value parts:

Minerals and vitamins – the bulk plant growth needs 

Carbohydrates – (alginates) which are broken down into short chain oligosacchorides, a key to plant energy, development and disease immunity

Protein – which breaks down into amino acid plant building blocks and enzymes to assist plant utilisation of minerals and vitamins

Polyphenols – which break down into humic and fulvic acid links for plant nutrients

Phytohormones – Vegetable and animal matter contains a very small amount of Phytohormones. A digestate liquid extract would typically contain:

20–30ppm    Auxins
2–10ppm    Gibberrellins
20–30ppm    Cytokinins
30–40ppm    Ethylene
30–40ppm    Bscicis Acid (ABA)

Whilst the Phytohormone content is beneficial, the majority of the benefit comes from the oligosacchorides, amino acids and humic acids content of the mix. The quality and quantity of these valuable materials will depend on the source and extraction process used.
