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.

Priming Effect: Preparing plants to combat drought and other abiotic stress conditions

Plants growing in Drought prone conditions can be subject to immense environmental (abiotic) stress. By preparing the plant for abiotic stress, if and when it occurs, the plant is less affected by the stress and has the potential to recover quicker, which help to minimize yield loss.

Avoiding Soil erosion and increasing water infiltration and water holding capacity

Soil Structure directly affects the ability of soil to resist drought and desertification. Fundamental to soil structure is the presence of Soil Organic Matter (SOM) and, within the SOM component, Humic Acids play a fundamental role. Obviously, soils that have suffered a loss of SOM have also lost most of their Humic Acids.
