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