An equally important interaction, besides pH, is one explained by Mulder’s Chart. The Mulder’s Chart represents the interaction between the essential plant elements. Some interactions are positive (synergistic), and others are negative (antagonistic). A synergistic relationship is one where the elements involved assisting each other by increasing uptake or utilization. Grow Elements has four different forms of available nitrogen; Organic WSN, Ureic, Ammonium, & Nitrate. The balance of these in Grow Elements is specifically tailored for cannabis plants developed from hundreds of tissue analyses over 20 years of growing cannabis.
In contrast, an antagonistic relationship means the elements block uptake or utilization. For instance, adequate potassium improves the use of iron and manganese, but if it is too high, it will block (antagonizes) the utilization of magnesium, boron, nitrogen, phosphorous and calcium. An antagonized element may be present in high enough levels, but if there is too much potassium in the root zone, the plant won’t have access.
Elements that act as antagonists do so in a couple of ways. For example, suppose calcium levels are too high. In that case, it can simply out-compete other elements such as potassium and magnesium for uptake by the roots, or it can change pH to the point iron and boron become unavailable.
Canna Growth Sciences Grow Elements Formula ensures the nutrients you provide are in perfect balance with each other for maximum uptake and utilization.
Talon Bioassimilator, one hundred percent plant-derived, chelating (KEY-late) technology provides industry-leading chelation strength and bioavailability. The quadruple point chemical bond properties of Talon are fully metabolized by plants, requiring less energy to use over convention chelates and complexes. With Talon Technology, plants spend less energy converting applied raw nutrients into usable forms. In turn, Talon allows plants to spend more energy developing fruits and tissues rather than converting applied nutrients into usable forms before they can be used for plant growth and development.
Talon Compared to Traditional Chelates
- 100% plant-derived
- Multiple points of chelation (4 vs 2 with Glycine) = stronger bonds, less reaction with other chemicals in soil solution.
- Dual Action – Biochelation and Biostimulation
- Wide pH plant availability – pH 3 to pH 10
- High solubility
- Low environmental impact
- Mainly glycine
- Weak Complex by comparison
- Mostly Iron products are available
Synthetic Chelates (EDTA, DTPA, EDDHA)
- Single-mode of action
- Low degree of biodegradability
- Risk of mobilization of heavy metals- Flushing
- much larger molecules
