New crop nutrition product maximises nutrient uptake while reducing nitrate run-off

Yields and quality can be improved, profits increased, and environmental concerns addressed with a new crop nutrition product being launched at Cereals 2019, from British biotechnology company AminoA Biostimulants (stand 1019).

Recommended for use on all crops, AminoA BLAAZT is an exciting new introduction to the AminoA range of biostimulant products. AminoA BLAAZT contains Nitrogen in the Amine form (NH2), which is the most efficient form, normally only produced and found in the plant itself.

By harnessing this form of Nitrogen, BLAAZT helps improve yield and quality in all crops, provides effective Nitrogen nutrition and reduces the risk of environmental pollution from the run-off of easily leached chemical fertilisers.

A hybrid product, combining the amine Nitrogen with complexed calcium, micronutrients, fulvic and humic acid, and a broad spectrum of L-isomer amino-acids, AminoA BLAAZT is seen as a revolution in crop nutrition.

A neutral pH enables efficient nutrient uptake, in turn reducing overall fertiliser applications and costs. The complexed calcium, together with the amino-acids, maximises new root growth development and the plants ability to maximise the uptake of available nutrients.

“We have been trialling the product, initially in Northern France and now throughout the UK, since last year,” explains AminoA managing director Richard Phillips. “We are already seeing very high wheat protein, combined with growth responses we have never seen before.”

The original amine (NH2) based product was developed some 20-years ago, with the main intention to boost wheat protein levels. By combining with the amino-acids, it creates an extremely efficient means of introducing a concentrated form of Nitrogen into the plant.

Formulated to mix with most agrochemicals, improving their efficiency, applying BLAAZT can result in reduced field operations, while significant amounts of the crop’s nutritional requirements can be delivered simultaneously.

“Significantly less Nitrogen needs to be applied, and in very fertile soils we believe it may be possible to eliminate classical Nitrogen application entirely,” adds Mr Phillips.

AminoA BLAAZT is the latest range to be launched by AminoA, following the launch of the liquid biostimulant AminoA FLO in July 2017.

Mr Phillips says, “Our products are deliberately designed to have broad spectrum activity as they contain every essential amino-acid that plants synthesise throughout their growth cycle. Therefore, if applied to the plant at any stage, from sowing to maturity, they can contribute positively to yield and quality if the plant is not already producing an optimal level of amino-acids itself.

“Most of our customers are conventional arable farmers who have realised that the judicious use of biostimulants can boost yields and profits whilst at the same time sustaining the fragile ecosystem in our soils,” he adds.

Richard and his team at AminoA Biostimulants will be available during Cereals 2019 at Boothby Graffoe, Lincolnshire on Weds 12 and Thursday 13th June, stand 1019.
