Description




AMINOFOL® is a plant biostimulant which represents a new and more effective mean of increasing crop production.

Its principal components are:
N-Acetyl-Thiazolidin-4-Carboxilic acid (ATCA) which is obtained from the natural aminoacid Cysteine, and Folic acid




Composition of the AMINOFOL® formulation (% W/V)
N-Acetyl-Thiazolidin-4-Carboxilic acid (ATCA)
Folic acid

Packaging

Available the following packagings:

- AMINOFOL® 200 CC
- AMINOFOL® 1 L
- AMINOFOL® 5 L
- AMINOFOL® 25 L
- AMINOFOL® 200 L
- AMINOFOL® 1.000 L




Action mechanism
In fact ATCA, AMINOFOL®’ s active ingredient, can travel through the plant overcoming all the physiological and metabolic barriers without undergoing chemical degradation and thus reach the inside of the plant cell, which is the “zone of action” of our product.
Within the plant cell, by a slow enzymatic degradation of ATCA, at first stage Thioproline is formed which plays an important part in overcoming environmental stress by interacting with the Proline metabolism and leading to an increase of its level in the plant cell. Subsequently N-Formyl-Cysteine and Cysteine are formed, from which the thiol (- SH) groups are discharged, positively working as metabolic activators.
AMINOFOL® applications lead to an improvement in yield in terms of both quantity and quality.
When applied to seeds, AMINOFOL® not only increases the germination potential of the seed but also positively affects the whole subsequent growing cycle.
When applied according to instructions AMINOFOL® permits the full utilization of all the biochemical and physiological reserves of plants, stimulating the normal vital processes and helping to overcome the critical development periods of the whole subsequent growing cycle.















Results
  Years of field trials have demonstrated the following positive effects:

- Increased germination energy
- Increased root growth
- Increased vegetative growth
- Advance flowering
- Increased fruit setting
- Increased fruit quality (shape, weight, colour)
- Increased resistance to climatic stress
- Advance ripening
- Increased sugar content

AMINOFOL® is not a substitute to fertilizers, however it enables plants to utilize available nutritional elements better; for this reason AMINOFOL®’ s application is the ideal complement to good normal agronomic practices.

AMINOFOL®’ application mixed with a foliar fertilizer at the suggested dosage can improve results.

AMINOFOL® is compatible with products normally used in pest control treatments, provided they are not alkaline.



Use instructions

For all nursery crops we suggest a treatment a few days before transplanting at a dosage of 100-200 ml/hl.

A treatment is also recommended if weather conditions show danger of water and/or thermic stress (drought, low or sharp changes in temperature), at a dosage of 30 ml/hl.

When possible we suggest to apply AMINOFOL® by mixing it with the other pesticides usually used.

When the dosage rates are referred to hectares (ha) they are inclusive of all treatments; instead if they are referred to hectolitres (100 l.) they are relative to a single treatment considering a water spray volume of 1000 litres/ha.
