Amino acids are some of the basic building blocks of life.
Amino Power is a plant protein hydrolysate that can be absorbed directly into the plant leaf and root system for an immediate effect. It stimulates the plant to help with:
We recommend Amino Power as a natural plant stimulant and source of available N for all agricultural crops.
Amino Power is used in a wide variety of agricultural enterprises. It is suitable for use as a foliar spray and via irrigation. When mixing, fill spray tank half full with water and add the required amount of Amino Power while continuing to fill tank with water. Also add Fish Emulsion as spray oil or surfactant just before tank is full of water. Continue agitation through the spray operation. Jar tests are always recommended for tank mix compatibility.
Re-seal bag after use.
Horticultural Crops (Trees, Vines, Vegetables)
Dilute at 1 : 200 with water.
Foliar Spray: 1-2.5kg/ha
Trees & Vines
Apply at key growth stages:
Early growth, flowering, fruit set, fruit fill, post harvest.
Apply every 2-3 weeks.
Each farmer’s situation, processes and practices may differ and therefore necessitate corrections to ensure optimum results. Adjust
rates according to production levels. Repeat as required.
Always test for compatibility and crop suitability prior to use. Seek advice for rates suited to your crop.

Research shows improvements in growth are a result of multiple bioactive components that work together.
Active components in Amino Power:
• Modify the morphology of plant roots inducing a “nutrient acquisition response” that favours the uptake of nutrients via an increase in the absorptive surface area.
• Improve N uptake by roots. The amino acids in plant hydrolysates play a signalling role in regulating N uptake by roots.
• Improve the enzymes involved in nitrogen and carbon metabolism which increases nitrogen assimilation.
• Improve N uptake in plants as a result of increased nitrate reductase and glutamine synthetase activities.
Have peptides that have been shown to act as
signalling molecules for plant defence, growth and
• Contain soluble carbohydrates and phenols which
play an important role in energy metabolism and
oxidative stress defences.
• Improve salinity tolerance due to better nitrogen metabolism and a higher K/Na ratio and proline accumulation in leaves.
• Contain amino acids which are intermediate chelators, keeping trace metals soluble and available to the plant. Glutamic and glycine stimulate root cells to open up calcium ion channels, allowing calcium to be taken up many times faster than osmosis. Calcium uptake during
temperature stress is essential.
• Stimulate desirable, naturally occurring microorganisms such as N-fixing, P-solubilising and indoleacetic acid producing bacteria.
