Concept of AS

The concept of AS is based on the biological photosynthesis, by using sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide. While the utilisation rate of photosynthesis of most of crops is lower than 40%, AS can utilize it for over 80%. This photosynthesis is the biggest biological energy production on the earth. The nature of AS is very similar to that of algae.

  • Improves the photosynthesis of plants. The chlorophyll of most of plants leaf needs the amount of light for more than 400 lux for photosynthetic reaction. But, with 500 lux of light, the chloroplasts of AS can perform photosynthesis that is equivalent to the plants photosynthesis with over 1 lakh lux of light.
  • Improves colour of flowers and fruits. AS secretes certain types of amino acids (Leucine, Valine, Threonine, Asp,D). These amino acids are used by plants as a coloring agent. Similarly, AS contains Carotenoid naturally generated by the bacteria, which also improves the colour of flowers and fruits.
  • Improves the quality of agro products. The secretions of AS such as amino acids, vitamins, and hormones, increases taste, colour, and shining of the products.
  • Improves the fruit setting. The secretions of AS such as Proline and Uracil are very effective substances for increasing the success ratio of fruits setting and fruit maturation.
  • Produces very nutritious crop. The secretions of AS such as vitamins, amino acids, and uracil increase the nutrient value of the crop.
  • Suppression of Fusarium. The direct soil application of AS increases the population of Actinomycete, which in turn suppresses the harmful soil fungus like Fusarium. It helps in reduction of risk of continuous cropping.
  • Increases storage period. The one type of amino acids called Methionine, which is produced by AS, is converted into Ethylene Oxide (C2H4O) within the body of plant. Ethylene Oxide is very strong fungicide and bactericide, and therefore, protects the spoilage of agro products during storage.
  • The Ethylene is very effective for fruits as a maturation hormone.
  • Suppression of Hydrogen Sulfate. AS digests harmful gases like Hydrogen Sulfate and Ammonia. These gases are quite troublesome in both intensive poly-house cultivation and rice paddy cultivation. It develops in the paddy soil and damages the root of rice.
  • Increases sweetness (brix level). AS produces two substances called Phenylalanine and Aspalagin. The both substances are actually the ingredients of Aspartame. The Asparatame is an artificial sweetener and has 300 times higher sweetness than white sugar.

Phosphate mineral fixation in soils

Phosphate is often fixed in soils by the minerals such as iron and aluminum, which are present in the soil of many regions. Such phosphate fixation creates immobilization of phosphate in soils and becomes non available to the crop and consequently the growth and production of crop become undesirable.

To prevent such phosphate fixation in soils, there are several potential mechanisms for phosphate solublisation being used and among them, the fundamental technique is to apply as much organic compost as one can do. Applied organic compost then starts wrapping phosphate and protect from direct contact between phosphate and minerals.

Moreover, organic compost also develops large number of soil micro flora, which, to a great extent, also helps in solublising phosphate.

However, in the real situation of today's agriculture practice, obtaining enough organic compost is extremely difficult, due to the many factors such as climatic reason, increasing size of cultivable land, making compost with high laborer cost and high ingredients cost, scarcity of available animal fodder and high price of feed ingredients, etc.

Using Amino Solution (AS) for solublising phosphate

Alternate to the organic compost, which is difficult to obtain in a large quantity, AS can be used in the place for the soil enrichment. Having high amount of organic carbon, nutrients, and ion exchangeable capability, in fact, AS could be a candidate for a future's biofertilize for sustaining the agriculture production.
By applying AS to the soil, exchangeable bases on the fixation of phosphate decrease.

Freeing phosphate

1. Wrapping phosphate
When applied in the soil, AS develops large number of indigenous soil microbes. AS along with such increased soil microbes creates wrapping effect around phosphate and protect from fixation with iron and aluminum, Therefore, phosphate is freely available to the root of the plant.

Picture shows P is wrapped by AS and indiginous soil microbes, and being protected from fixsation with Fe and Al.

2. Binding iron and aluminum
Inside the soil, due to the ion exchange effect, AS along with increased soil microbes also starts binding iron and aluminum in the soil. Such binding effect of AS reduces the chances of fixation of phosphate. Thus, phosphate can freely be available to the root of the plant.

AS binds Fe and Al and provides free movement to P

Production of large volume of AS

As an Algae-Micro group, the source energy for production of AS is sunlight, CO2 and Hydrogen. All of which is abundantly available in the natural environment. Therefore, we can produce AS in unlimited volume. It could be a future´s biofertilizer and distributed to the farmers.

CO2 gas, which is said to be a cause of global warming, can be utilised for production of AS. During photosynthetic reaction, AS can fix CO2 that is about 10 times higher amount than the normal plant.
