UNLOC 500 is a new type of soil stimulant which conditions soil, creating the perfect environment for the soil microbiology to thrive in. Increased microbiological activity results in the nutrients and minerals becoming more plant available much quicker and the plants are able to absorb them much more efficiently. Growers know that healthy soil translates into better crops and increased yields.
The increase in profits and environmental benefits gained far out way the low cost of this product.
Field trials and university research have shown what our customers already know... incorporating our product into your soil management plan can... “UNLOC YOUR SOILS GROWING POTENTIAL!”
HOW IT WORKS
Creating oxidative conditions in soil is an important factor in overall soil health and crop potential. Soil organic matter content is considered one of the most important indicators of soil health. Increasing organic matter can lead to improved water infiltration, aggregate stability and hydraulic conductivity.
UNLOC soil stimulant is a proprietary blend of nutrients that are the key to unlocking your soil’s potential. The specially formulated and patented combination is designed to deliver sources of biologically available oxidants to soil microbes in a form that can be readily metabolized. As a result, the soil microbial population can increase
exponentially. Within a short period of time, the resulting increase in soil microbial life can lead to improved soil texture, mineralization and organic matter content.
UNLOC is intended as a supplement to a regular fertilization and irrigation program in order to enhance soil microbial life and plant nutrient uptake.
Note: UNLOC does not contain any foreign bacteria or enzymes but works with what is already in the soil.
EFFECTS ON SOIL
Soils are made of negatively charged colloides (very fine particles).
In compacted soils,these fine particles have bonded with the positively charged hydrogen element of water. The compacted zone obstructs applied water from moving into the soil.
The components in UNLOC are soil amending agents which effect changes in the surface tension of hydroscopic water in soil. The chemigation or spray application of UNLOC to soil frees the hydrogen bond and releases the colloidal particles to move and create microspores. This dynamic process is synergized by gravity and moves water into the soil profile. The unique ingredients of UNLOC catalyzes soil and plant metabolism at the root zone, which enhances aeration, fertilizer and water use efficiency.
EFFECTS ON PLANTS
Behind the hard tip of a root is the soft white part of the root that is clothed in minute hair roots composed of a single cell and almost invisible to the naked eye. Although water can be absorbed by older parts of the roots it is these minute hair roots that absorb most of the water and more importantly the nutrients that the plants need due to their large combined surface area. Root hair production is stimulated by moisture and oxygen. The absorption of water takes place by osmosis.
Oxygen is vitally important in the growth of hair roots which is why we are getting such good root growth with the application of UNLOC and hence plant growth.
EFFECTS ON MICROBIOLOGY
UNLOC greatly increases the number of beneficial bacteria and fungi, such as V.A.M (A fungi which a forms a symbiotic relationship with many plants increasing their ability to obtain nutrients) in the soil as it provides massive amounts of oxygen and nutrients for them to use.
The fungi diameter is greater in UNLOC treated soil and everything is more active. This helps to explain the improved drainage (bigger hyphie diameter means more porous soil).
UNLOC’s proprietary blend of ingredients conditions soil, creating the perfect environment for the soil microbiology to thrive in.
The product contains a specially formulated blend of calcium nitrate, potassium nitrate and ammonium nitrate. Each of these compounds forms a nitrate ion, which provides an oxidant source for aerobic bacteria. When oxygen levels are very low, such as in compacted soil, normally aerobic bacteria and facultative bacteria can get their oxidant from nitrate. This is not necessarily the addition of oxygen. Instead, the oxidation process
requires that for the sulfide ion to be “oxidized”, an ion must be present to “accept” the electron lost by the sulfide ion. Therefore the nitrate ions serve as an electron acceptor in the oxidation pathway of aerobic and facultative bacteria in an anaerobic environment.
The calcium ion, when added to typically high sulfide wastewater, will precipitate out calcium sulfate which lowers the concentration of the sulfate ion and deprives anaerobic bacteria of their oxidant source. Combined with the addition of the nutrient source for oxidation of facultative and aerobic bacteria, this compound plays an important role in ensuring that the aerobic bacteria out-compete the anaerobic bacteria. Calcium is also a
source of nutrition for cell development in bacteria.
The ammonium ion is an important building block for cell nutrition and growth. It contributes to the rapid growth of the microbial population and can also function as an electron donor in the respiratory path of aerobic bacteria.
Potassium is a key building block for cell nutrition and growth. The potassium ion is an integral part of the unique formulation that provides for the overall health of the aerobic bacteria.
Microorganisms such as bacteria require a carbon source for protein synthesis. UNLOC’s proprietary formula provides a source of dissolved nutrients for the facultative and aerobic bacteria that use nitrate as their respiratory oxidant. This effectively stimulates the rapid growth of the desired aerobic bacteria.
