Balsamo

A solution to improve the efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer applied on crops

Identification

Balsamo is an additive that improves nitrogen (N) fertilizer efficiency on crops, providing a high nitrogen absorption even without rainfalls.

The Balsamo additive is designed to improve the nitrogen fertilizer efficiency , and consequently improve crop performance (yield and protein. With more nitrogen in crops there is less nitrogen in the atmosphere (nitrogen oxide). Its active ingredient, Glutacetine, is a unique patented formula which allows plants to incorporate nitrogen in spray solution in their metabolism. The product is applied on crops leaves blended with liquid nitrogen, and works on three steps: (1) protect leaves from eventual N scorches, (2) increase the nitrogen crossing through the cuticle, and (3) stimulate the crop's metabolism through mainly 2 enzymes: nitrate reductase and glutamine synthetase. This unique mode of actions increases Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) and decreases volatilization and water pollution from fertilizers.
