Our mission is to manufacture the highest-quality and best-performing foliar sprays in the industry and to be the first product a consumer reaches for when purchasing a foliar spray. To achieve this goal, we strive to develop cutting-edge, innovative foliar technologies that push the level of performance of our products by working together as a highly efficient, growth-promoting system for your plants.

Foliar spraying has long been regarded as a method of fertilizing plants for increased growth and yields; however, the limitations and side effects have resulted in many growers avoiding the task and as a result the many benefits of such applications. Many products for plants are on the market that provide exceptional quality ingredients; however, as science and technology evolved the question of how best to foliar spray has not. The majority of the science, the concepts and the theory of foliar spraying date back to early studies done in the 1950’s. Since then, little to no research has been done to develop more effective products that target and solve not only the limitations of foliar spray technologies, but also the importance of the relationship between lighting, nutrition, foliar sprays and the palisade mesophyll layer.

WHY FOLIAR?

Most plant growers know that the plant leaves are the ‘factories’ where plants produce their own food from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of sunlight or supplemental lighting and chlorophyll. It is the chlorophyll in the leaves (usually green) that absorbs light energy to produce sugars (food) for the plant and oxygen to be released into the atmosphere. The epicenter of the manufacturing facility in the plant leaf is called the palisade mesophyll layer.

The water and nutrients that plants take up from the growing media through their roots, are transported through the stem to the leaves – to the manufacturing facility of the plant. The main objective of foliar sprays is therefore to apply water and nutrients directly to the leaves where it can be absorbed and used in the manufacturing process virtually immediately. Foliar sprays do not replace the function of the roots and stem, but it supplements this function periodically to enhance plant growth and plant health.
