APEX-10™ is a powerful bio-stimulant and soil amendment in one. This is a one-of-a-kind peat extract made from 10,000 year old active and complex naturally occurring materials. The result is a formula with greater power than simply the sum of its parts. This creates the ultimate product for crop, plant & soil health which has been proven to:
• Enhance fertilizer & water efficiency
• Increase crop/plant turgidity
• Enhance soil nutrient retention & make nutrients more available to the crop/plant
• Dramatically reduce potential of root loss under stressful conditions
• Improve overall crop/plant performance
Some of the Effects of APEX-10 include
– APEX-10™ promotes higher levels of chlorophyll in plant tissue at reduced rates of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
– APEX-10™ treated plots had higher levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in the leaf tissue.
– APEX-10™ promotes significantly better drought tolerance and post-drought recovery when compared to turf not treated with APEX-10™.
– Turf quality of both bluegrass and bent grass improve to a far greater degree during times of water deficit due to increase in root & shoot production of APEX-10™ treated plots.
– Following 3.5 weeks of drought conditions, bent grass treated with APEX-10™ retained much higher visual quality, less wilting, sustained growth and sustained function when compared to the control.
– Results confirmed great photochemical efficiency, a greater ability to grow and maintain root mass and greater antioxidant activity during drought stress.
– Tiller density, root mass, and root strength increased.
– APEX-10™ will provide the resources to overcome the two limiting factors of newly sodded fields: a playable surface & stable footing.
– APEX-10™ is a quick colonizing resource for fungi, bacteria, and protozoa growth.
– In the presence of APEX-10™, microorganisms in the soil are retaining higher levels of nutrients and nitrogen.
APEX-10™ works in 3 ways:
1. APEX-10™ enhances the cationic exchange capacity, allowing soil to hold onto nutrients and water for longer periods of time, improving fertilizer efficiency.
2. APEX-10™ is a food source for microbes in the soil, allowing them to transform more nutrients into crop available forms, which are necessary for crop uptake.
3. Lastly, it increases the crop’s metabolism to allow it to take in nutrients faster and store carbohydrates for improved stress tolerance.
>> WHAT DOES APEX-10™ DO FOR SOIL?
APEX-10™ enhances soil health through flocculation, allowing for better water and root penetration. Also, it improves the biological activity within the soil by providing nutrients and food necessary for beneficial microbes to grow in population and activity. Lastly, it allows the soil to hold onto nutrients and water, which enhances a crop’s durability. Additionally, this reduces the amount of fertilizer used.
>> WHAT DOES APEX-10™ DO FOR CROPS?
APEX-10™ enhances the crop’s ability to perform to its maximum genetic potential. It improves chlorophyll production and photosynthetic activity in crops for increased respiration. And third, it allows the crop to increase its carbohydrate reserves and hormone levels for improved stress tolerance.
>> WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF APEX-10™?
There are numerous benefits of using APEX-10™. It is environmentally friendly and OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed in the US as organic and safe for use on anything that grows. University testing and real world applications prove that APEX-10™ provides a valuable return on investment by:
• Enhancing Fertilizer & Water Efficiency
• Increasing Crop Turgidity
• Enhancing Soil Nutrient Retention & Making Nutrients more available to the crop
• Dramatically Reduces Potential of Root Loss under stressful conditions
