More about amino acids in AminoElite

Grow Green is a specialist fertiliser company that has grown its technical knowledge over 25 years. Our unique expertise is in specialised amino acids.

Grow Green’s premier product, Amino Elite is a complex suite of amino acids that target enhanced nutrient efficiency.

For example, the ability for a plant to translocate calcium to all necessary areas of the plant is very difficult. To this end we include, along with other amino acids, glycine and aspartic acid.

For issues relating to salinity and water deficiency we include proline, threonine and phenylalanine. And for chlorophyll production we include, glutamic, lysine and serine acid. 

From these few examples, you can begin to see that AminoElite is an extremely complex and versatile product. It is produced without heating, utilising bacterial digestion thus allowing us to preserve beneficial microbes and creating nutrients in the form of absorbable amino acids.

Below are some references that support Grow Green's trial and research findings when crops were treated with AminoElite.
