2 CharacteristicsGRX-SP is 0.85% IBA and 0.15% Kinetin. IBA functions to promote the growth of lateral roots. Kinetin which is known as a juvenile hormone, functions to keep the roots from becoming corky and aging to rapidly. When IBA is used alone it tends to cause roots to age prematurely.
3 The Benefits of GRX-SP to crops The most visible benefits of GRX-SP are seen in the increased stalk size and in the quantity of roots. The stem and stalk contain the conductive tissues for translocation of water, sap and nutrients through out the plant. GRX-SP increases the “Root Bio –Activity” of the crop, which is defined as the absorption capacity of the roots and it also describes its metabolic rate. The increased absorption capacity of the roots indicates there will be more absorption of water, nutrients and trace minerals especially Ca, Fe, Zn, & Mn. GRX-SP enhances the levels of natural plant hormones ,like, IAA, an auxin, Zrs, a cytokinin, and GA, a gibberellin. These increased hormonal levels cause the newly absorbed nutrients to locate in the areas of greatest needs, which causes improved growth efficiency.Herbicides that are applied over the top of crops may cause a short lived period of slowed growth and or yellowing. This process may consume valuable growing time and energy. When GRX-SP is applied this stress does not occur and the crop appears greener when compared to untreated. GRX-SP is then said to be a “safener” to herbicide applications.
4 Physiological actions and mechanisms of GRX-SP 1. Improved formation of secondary roots and a proliferation of root hairs.2. Enhances the uptake of water and nutrients3.Increases the absorption capacity of the roots4. Healthier early plant growth during developmental period with larger stalks and stems.5. Stimulates early crop growth factors including cellular growth and cell division with the proper ratio of kinetin to auxin6. Stimulates endogenous levels of natural hormones for better growth and health7.Can be applied during the seed development in fruit when auxins are in great demand8. Reduces stress that is potentially caused by the herbicide applications
