One of the unique functions of Crecer is that it helps plants to continue growing on hot days. Under these conditions, the amino acids in Crecer cause the stomata to remain open even at temperatures exceeding 40 ˚C so that plants can continue to grow.
Soil is a dynamic ecosystem containing many microscopic organisms that require an energy source to survive as all living organisms do. Crecer provides a suitable substrate for these microorganisms to grow and be active by satisfying their nutritional needs.
The net contents of all elements in fertilizers are printed on their packages. However, are all these elements absorbed by plants? Of course they are not. Considerable percentages of the applied fertilizers either combine with the other elements in the soil and the roots will not be able to absorb the combined forms, or they are leached beyond the root zone and become unavailable to plants. Crecer contains special compounds such as fulvic acid, an organic compound that can break down the combined forms of the nutrients in the soil so that the rhizosphere can rapidly absorb the macro- and micro-nutrients.
Considering the properties of liquid fertilizers, they can be used in all stages of plant growth and even before planting. However, it is not recommended to apply fertilizers after the completion of longitudinal growth in crops such as wheat and rice and during fruit ripening in fruit trees. In the case of fruit trees, foliar application of liquid fertilizers is recommended after harvest to help provide the trees with energy in the following year (at fruit set stage).
As mentioned earlier, Crecer can influence the plants and the soil simultaneously. After several applications, Crecer improves soil structure, increases soil porosity and water holding capacity and restores the soil by adjusting its pH and providing organic matter for soil microorganisms.
Plants need amino acids as a growth stimulant for optimal growth. However, they can only absorb a limited number of amino acids called “L-amino acids.” Other amino acids are not found in plant structure. That is why no special changes happen in plant growth when fertilizers containing even 70-80% amino acids are applied. Crecer contains a suitable percentage of L-amino acids that are completely absorbable by plants and help improving crop yield.
Optimal application rates vary depending on soil analysis and types of plants. However, under standard conditions and using a drip irrigation system, they are as follows:
Greenhouse crops: 1 g/plant from the 4-leaf stage to harvest time
Fruit trees: 1-5 g/tree depending on age and kind of tree
* In flood irrigation, a 1% solution of the fertilizer should be prepared and applied after half of the plot is irrigated. The application rate in this irrigation practice is about 20-30 liters of the fertilizer per ha.
In addition to fertigation and soil application techniques, Crecer can be absorbed through leaves and stomata. If you intend to induce flowering and increase leaf surface area, prepare a 1:300 (v/v) Crecer solution and spray it early in the morning or before sunset. Even one application of Crecer (by spraying or through the fertigation technique) will yield remarkable results, but you should apply it once every 3-4 weeks to increase crop yield. If you use other fertilizers in addition to Crecer, apply it one week after the last time the other fertilizers are applied. Refer to the table below to better understand the differences in the performance of Crecer and chemical fertilizers.
Performs much better in unsuitable soils than chemical fertilizers. Under normal conditions (depending on the various crops), Crecer and chemical fertilizers exhibit similar performance.
Yield increase depends on preparing a soil sample and sending it for analysis and on soil conditions.
Field application schedule
Is applied after the 4-leaf stage in vegetables and summer crops and at any growth stage in fruit trees.
A specific fertilizer must be used for each growth stage.
Possibility of plant toxicity
May cause plant toxicity only at very high doses.
If the exact rate is not applied, plants may burn or the fertilizer can be ineffective.
Simultaneous absorption through stomata and roots
Demonstrates this ability fully and effectively.
Some chemical fertilizers have this ability.
Absorption rate of the fertilizer elements
Is completely absorbed because it contains only natural ingredients.
Large parts of the elements in most chemical fertilizers are leached beyond the root zone.
The effect duration of the fertilizer in the soil
Increases soil organic matter and a considerable part of it can remain in the soil for several years.
Chemical fertilizers must be applied repeatedly and are rapidly removed from the root zone.
Capability of being mixed with other fertilizers
Has this capability. However, it should be used after the other fertilizers to also increase their absorption rates.
Most chemical fertilizers will not be absorbed if they are mixed together and applied.
Capability of restoring and amending soil structure
Is strongly able to change the soil system into a dynamic and living ecosystem.
Application of chemical fertilizers degrades soils.
Mixture of micro- and macro-nutrients
Contains suitable percentages of micro- and macro-elements without causing any antagonistic interactions.
Chemical fertilizers contain a maximum of 3-4 micro- or macro-elements.
Ability to mitigate impact of soil salinity
Contains compounds that replace soil sodium and reduce the effects of salinity
Some chemical fertilizers such as urea even increase the effects of soil salinity.
Ability to mitigate the effects of heat stress
Contains a special kind of compound that keeps the stomata open for the growth to continue even at temperatures exceeding 40 ˚C.
Some chemical fertilizers exhibit this ability to some extent.
Ability to reduce the impact of drought
Enjoys this as one of its unique abilities.
Some chemical fertilizers have this ability.
Ability to adjust soil pH
Intelligently adjusts soil acidity.
Some acidifying fertilizers decrease soil acidity but also damage the living soil ecosystem.
Ability to increase absorption of minerals from the soil
Is not only a rich source of nutrients needed by plants but also improves absorption of other elements in the soil.
In many instances, interactions between two or more chemical fertilizers in the soil lead to the formation of compounds that the roots cannot absorb.
Decreases entry of chemical elements into the groundwater by helping in the absorption of elements that cannot be absorbed in the soil.
Considering the nature of chemical fertilizers, leaching and infiltration of a large part of chemical fertilizers into the groundwater is unavoidable.
Possibility of its use in organic farming
Can serve as one of the main pillars of organic farming.
Chemical fertilizers cannot be used in organic farming.
