RE: Amino Acid Supplements for Plants: How Amino Acids can Affect Plant Growth and Resistance to Environmental Stress

in #steemstem4 years ago

Very informative article and excellent graphics. At @ecoswell, a high-impact nonprofit operating in Lobitos, Peru, we are focusing on reforestation projects throughout this arid, semi-rural region. The possibility of root strengthening and elongation would be extremely beneficial as we are planning to plant about 200 seedlings in the coming weeks, and fortified roots could reduce soil erosion and degradation (which is a common issue in our dessert- like dry forest). If we were to pursue this idea further, how viable would it be to introduce amino acids into our planting process? How does the introduction of amino acids compare to other growth enhancing supplements, for example, bacillus bacteria or organic fertilizer? If there is a stark difference in effectiveness, we will definitely entertain this possibility for our large scale reforestation.

Sort:  

Bacillus bacteria or amino acid? U can have both. If you are open to the idea of silaging fish byproducts (maybe you can tap a marine processing company)....and ferment fish with carbohydrates source and lactobacillus starter..(its simple..you can have it in drums). The product is very high in amino acids and probiotics very good for the soil...also as foliar application..

Or you can purchase ready-to-use products.

Great, thank you for your insight. We will let you know if we continue onward with this and if so, we can send you the results of trees enhanced with amino acids opposed to trees held as constants, if you'd like. We love to support our growing community of sustainability and environmental researchers!

I would very much love that. Thank you very much. Followed you.
