The amino acids are the fundamental basis of any biological molecule.
No biological process in the plant can be accomplished without some stage intervening amino acids, their compounds or derivatives.
Amino acids are organic compounds with chemical structure like this:
NH = amino group,
COOH = carboxyl group,
R = radical ranging from amino acid to amino acid.
There are hundreds of amino acids, but the most important are about twenty, that form proteins, the components of the basis of living cells.
The chemical and biological properties of a protein depend on the number and type of amino acids that compose it, as well as the order in which these are present.
AMINO ACIDS FUNCTIONS
Not all amino acids have the same importance in the plants and they are present in different ratio. For example, Lysine, Tryptophan and Methionine are needed in low concentrations, while the Glutamic acid and Aspartic acid, that by transamination give rise to all other amino acids, are present in plants in large quantities.
Proline acts on the water balance of crops, strengthening the cell walls and making the plants more resistant to adverse climatic conditions.
Glycine is fundamental in the formation of plant tissue and is one of the first compounds used in the synthesis of chlorophyll, therefore it also represents a way to prevent chlorosis.
Lysine and Arginine are involved in the stimulation of photosynthesis and slow the aging process.
All amino acids are still important and interdependent, so that the absence of one can block the synthesis of others.
WHY TRAINER AMINO ACIDS ARE THE BEST
The effectiveness of a fertilizer with amino acids is not due only to their total concentration and their state of aggregation, but also to the relationships in which each amino acid is present.
TRAINER for its origin and thanks to the innovative production process provide amino acids in a form and relations more suitable for plants, giving maximum effectiveness and quality of action.
The plant's amino acids are all optically active and left-handed.
All the amino acids of Trainer are optically active and left-handed, unlike those produced by chemical synthesis or acid/alkaline hydrolysis, and so they have the higest biological functioning.
Only left-handed amino acids can be assimilated and used in the biological cycles of plants; right-handed ones are not recognized by the enzyme functions, so they are not used in the protein synthesis and can also create problems of phyto-toxicity.
Italpollina uses only certificate vegetable raw materials, not genetically modified. We never use waste of animal origin deriving from residues from industrial processes.
Thanks to an innovative productive process based on enzymatic hydrolysis, there is no formation or adding of amide nitrogen, which complicated protein biosynthesis.
The content of free amino acids varies according to physiological states of the plant.
Their concentration is the highest during periods of dormancy, when protein synthesis decreases and the plant accumulates amino acids. In periods of growth these reserves are used for the synthesis of proteins and their concentration decreases.
For this reason the best application period is when the crop has need of specific amino acids: growth, after transplantation, fruit formation, or when frost, drought or else have altered plant's capacity of synthesis.
