FERTICELL® TECHNOLOGY

A Unique, Proprietary Product Line

What are Ferticell® Products?

Ferticell® products are a line of liquid plant stimulants/nutrients based on fresh water algae extracts. This proprietary technology combines the unique characteristics of fresh water algae with a combination of bacteria, enzymes and minerals that interact synergistically to stimulate plant growth, flowering and fruiting.

Ferticell® products provide the auxins and cytokinins that users of seaweed products have found helpful to plant health, without the salt levels inherent in seaweed. As such, Ferticell® is safe and effective to use when applied at labeled rates under a broad range of growing conditions.
The proprietary ingredients and processes used to formulate Ferticell® products can only be obtained from Agroplasma, Inc.® , the exclusive importer of this outstanding technology which has been proven in Europe for over 20 years.

Materials Used in Ferticell® Products

Only the latest technology and raw materials are used in the manufacture of Ferticell® products. This means consistent quality, safety and performance from all Ferticell® products.

The Agroplasma® Technology

Inter-Cellular Exchange (I.C.E.)

Ferticell® products contain protein, natural amino acids, Cytokinin, Auxin, algae/soil cells extract, and a complete natural nutrient formula.

The ICE technology will transfer all nutrients from Ferticell® cells included in Ferticell® products to plant cells immediately. This new technology, developed by Agroplasma®, is designed to improve yield in both quality and quantity, and to grow stronger, healthier crops.

This revolutionary new approach to growing stronger healthier crops is based on the knowledge that most plants have their own complex growth and defense systems that are only activated when certain events occur in nature or activated by Ferticell®. The unique characteristic of the different CELLS used in Ferticell® have the ability to consume luxury amounts of nutrients. The cells store nutrients in biological form and recreate in their own body nutrients like protein, amino acids, microelements, and vitamins.

The complex formula of Ferticell® products also include soil/water cell extracts, a complete nutrient formula, and naturally developed materials to be used during different crop growing stages. Studies have shown that plants treated with Ferticell® stimulate the plant systems, resulting in more root mass, increased leaf area, increased number of flowers, fruit and early maturation.

The Terminology

Cytokinin/Auxin
Cytokinin is composed of a number of plant growth substances that are usually derived from adenine. Synthesized in roots, cytokinins move upward in the xylem (woody tissue) and pass into the leaves and fruit, where they are required for normal growth. Auxin and cytokinin control plant development through a multitude of complex interactions. The balance between auxins and cytokinins controls the formation of roots, shoots, callus tissue, the outgrowth of shoot axillary buds, and the formation of lateral roots.
Sticker
Product without adherent: The product washes out easily when it rains or used in conjunction with other external agents. Ferticell® forces the product to stick to the leaves and ensures its total absorption.
Surfactant/Penetrating Agent
Product without Surfactant: The product is absorbed by the plant only upon suitable conditions. Ferticell® with Surfactant : Ferticell® improves the product penetration under any condition.
Stabilizer
Product without stabilizer: The product settles in the mixing tank, forcing failures in application. Ferticell® with stabilizer : Ferticell® remains in suspension in the mixing tank and allows a perfect and homogeneous application.
Spreader
Product without spreader: The product has little contact with the absorption surface of the leaves during and after the application. Ferticell® with spreader : Ferticell® facilitates dispersion on the leaf surface, increasing the product absorption.
Foliar
Only the best approved raw materials are used in the manufacturing process. This means consistent quality, safety and performance from the foliar products. Foliar applications are an important tool in modern crop production, having the ability for timely application of nutrients targeted at the crop and avoiding soil interactions. Ferticell® research greenhouses and global field trial programs ensures that the product application rates and timing are correct. Foliar application gives the farmer the best return on investment.
Seeds and Soil Powder Amino-Acids and Micro-Nutrients
The critical period for successful crop establishment is post germination when the seedling has to rely on its seed nutrient reserves. The young plant is unable to draw on soil nutrients until sufficient root growth has developed. Likewise, foliar application of nutrients is inappropriate until sufficient leaf growth has developed to intercept and absorb the nutritional sprays. Agroplasma has developed a series of high concentration, liquid and solid micronutrient products, specifically for seed treatment. The Ferticell® -Seed product technology ensures easy handling and application, while delivering maximum benefit from a trace element seed coating.
Fertigation
Fertigation is the name given to the practice of combining fertilizer application with irrigation. Fertigation allows precise and uniform nutrient application into the wetted root zone where the active roots are concentrated. Fertilizer efficiency is increased, which allows for a reduction in the amount of fertilizer required and a reduction in production costs. It also lessening the potential for groundwater pollution caused by fertilizer leaching. The amount and concentration of the applied nutrients can be regulated and monitored to meet the actual nutritional requirements of the crop throughout the growing season. Fertigation also saves energy and labour. And, it increases application flexibility because nutrients can be applied to the soil when crop or soil conditions would not otherwise allow entry into the field with conventional equipment. Agroplasma has a range of products for use in fertigation systems. Manufactured from the highest quality raw materials, each one is carefully formulated to prevent precipitation or systems clogging.
