4 CARBOTECH IS A LIQUID CARBON PRODUCT DERIVED FROM PLANT EXTRACTS. CARBOTECH IS USEFUL IN IMPROVING THE EFFICIENCY OF PLANT NUTRIENT UPTAKE.

5 TYPES OF CARBON Cellulose Hemi-cellulose Starch Fats and oils Lignin Proteins Pectins BREAKDOWN PRODUCTS Oligo- and polysaccharides Saccharides Dextrin Fatty acids Humic and fulvic acids Amino acids Amylose and amylopectin Photosynthetic organisms A unique blend of complex carbohydrates derived from photosynthetic organisms, consisting of five distinct functional groups. Process “Liquid compost” Hydroponic trial setup for product development and evaluation

6 1.Carbotech will bind with nutrients and protect it from lock-out in the soil or from leaching and volatilization. a)Cat-Ions such as Ammonia, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium binds with Carbotech to form larger molecules, aiding in reducing leaching through the soil. b)Anions such as Phosphates binds with Carbotech in 'n proses called organic Phosphate clustering protecting it from Calcium / Phosphate lockout. 2.Carbotech will improve root growth by stimulating cell division and growth as well as having a positive effect on phosphate availability and mobility 3.The beneficial carbonaceous bacterial food source available in Carbotech promotes the bio-life in the soil to thrive and assist in the promotion of nutrient uptake, root development and root health to give natural defence against attacks on plant health 1.Carbotech will bind with nutrients and protect it from lock-out in the soil or from leaching and volatilization. a)Cat-Ions such as Ammonia, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium binds with Carbotech to form larger molecules, aiding in reducing leaching through the soil. b)Anions such as Phosphates binds with Carbotech in 'n proses called organic Phosphate clustering protecting it from Calcium / Phosphate lockout. 2.Carbotech will improve root growth by stimulating cell division and growth as well as having a positive effect on phosphate availability and mobility 3.The beneficial carbonaceous bacterial food source available in Carbotech promotes the bio-life in the soil to thrive and assist in the promotion of nutrient uptake, root development and root health to give natural defence against attacks on plant health

7 Results of Leaching Test Dec-11 Method A Nitrogen mixture (AN and Distilled water) with and without Carbotech was made and poured through a sand column. The sand column was 50mm in diameter and 150mm high. Coarse, washed silica sand was used. Below are the measurements that were taken before and after the sand “filter” It clearly demonstartes Carbotech’s ability to bind with Nitrogen and to reduce leaching to a large extent.

8 The producer’s aim with tree crops is to get nutrient levels in the leaves up to norm. Because Carbotech can improve nutrient uptake, we are able to reduce nutrient application to various degrees This translates to a net saving on the fertilizer program in most cases (Note – the approach with young trees is similar to field crops) The producer’s aim with field crops is to feed the plant optimally for maximum yield. Because Carbotech can improve nutrient uptake, we are able to feed the plant more optimally This translates to an increase in profit per hectare in most cases The producer’s aim with field crops is to feed the plant optimally for maximum yield.

9 Carbotech is a liquid product that can be used with liquid or granular fertilizer. Carbotech is usually applied through the irrigation water, with or without fertilizer, but as close as possible to the fertilizer application. Alternatively, Carbotech can be applied, by spraying a dilute (1:10), mechanically or manually on the soil close to the plant where the fertilizer is usually applied.

10 It is important for success that a CFT Carbotech Application program is prepared for every application. The following information is needed to convert a chemical program into a Carbotech program: 1.Standard chemical fertilizer program (latest) a)Fertilizer detail including strength (e.g (33) ) b)Application Intervals (e.g. Monthly, Weekly, etc..) c)Hectares. d)Application methods 2.Opsional Information: a)Expected yield b)Leaf and Soil Analyses It is important for success that a CFT Carbotech Application program is prepared for every application.

26 Not a true trial as the yield increase is between seasons. Various other factors could have contributed. Similar trends in other crops does however help to build confidence in the abilities of the product

29 This graph shows that in addition to the yield increase of 13t per ha, there were also changes in classification in favour of higher value classes. This resulted in a revenue difference of R27361 per ha, after the cost of Carbotech (R4700 per ha) has been taken into account.

30 Carbotech Aartappelmoere proef - Julian Nieuwoudt - Christiana This graph shows that in addition to the yield increase of 1506Kg on 10Ha, there were also changes in classification in favour of higher value classes. This resulted in a revenue difference of R59607 on 10 ha, after the cost of Carbotech (R x10 = R14295) has been taken into account. (Note: yield differences on seed potatoes are lower as their growth is terminated on 110 days)

39 Early results on Lucerne with Carbotech looks very promising. No formal measurements have yet been made, but obvious growth differences were observed that have farmers excited. One farmer in Warmbaths stated that the yield difference might be as much as 30% higher in his specific case Application Strategy: Carbotech is used in conjuction with a general purpose micro nutrient product like Multifeed Application is made directly after each cutting. The rates are as follows: Carbotech: 4 liters per Ha Multifeed: 2kg per Ha The cost is
