When climate still fights against us and best farm management practices have not been enough: L-α Amino Acids

Improving soil structure and promoting the plants ability to resist drought stress increases the ability of agriculture to push back against drought and desertification helping ensure critical food supplies. Unfortunately, despite best farm management practices, sometimes the climate will still fight against us. This is where Tradecorp Delfan Plus can be a further technology in the farmers’ arsenal.

 

Tradecorp Solution: Delfan Plus, with Proline to help plants resist drought

Delfan Plus is a Free L-α Amino Acid based product that helps protect yield. L-α Amino Acids are critical to plant growth as among other things L-α Amino Acids are responsible for all proteins in plants. Delfan Plus is rich in 17 Amino Acids including Proline which is an Amino Acid known to help plants resist drought.

Desertification - Amino Acids & Proline

For example, under drought stress conditions up to 20% of the Amino Acid pool can be converted into Proline, compared to 5% under normal conditions. The Proline is used by the plants to help the plant naturally resist stress. Resisting drought stress and bringing the crop to completion are important in the fight to resist desertification for a number of reasons:

  • Crop failure increases the effect of wind and drought on soil erosion promoting desertification
  • Lack of crop growth reduces the return of organic matter to the soil, promoting the breakdown of soil structure enhancing drought effects and increasing risk of desertification
  • Consistent crop failure especially, in less developed countries, can force farmers off the land – causing it to become abandoned. Abandoned land in a dry climate rapidly accelerates erosion and desertification
