Straight Arrow’s innovatively formulated “Carbon Boosted” fertilizers supply a power punch of carbon, along with other readily available plant nutrients. Straight Arrow™ Organic Acids make this all possible. These organic acids are anion based and loaded with carbon chains to provide optimum uptake. Our “Carbon Boosted” fertilizers work as a natural plant metabolite, enhancing fruit quality, plant production, and crop yields.
Years of research and experience led to the development of our most exceptional “Carbon Boosted” liquid fertilizer line. “Why Carbon?” you might ask. Without carbon, life as we know it could not exist. It is among the most essential plant nutrients and often the most overlooked. On average, the dry weight of a cell is 50% carbon. Carbon is required to form carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, and many other compounds.
Most soil particles have a negative charge, attracting and tying up positively charged nutrients, making them immobile in the soil. Straight Arrow™ Organic Acids are anion based, meaning they have a negative charge. Negatively charged organic acids will attract positively charged nutrients, replacing soil particles. Applying Straight Arrow™ “Carbon Boosted” fertilizers will free previously tied up nutrients in the soil, while supplying readily available nutrients to all crops. This process will significantly reduce the total amount of fertilizer growers will need to apply.
Our “Carbon Boosted” fertilizers also have an extremely low salt index and help push unwanted salts from the root zone. The process for leaching salts is similar to that of freeing tied up nutrients. Salts are positively charged, thus immobile in negatively charged soil. After applying Straight Arrow™ “Carbon Boosted” products, salts will be released from soil particles and leached out of the soil profile.
