Enzymes are proteins which help accelerate the process of chemical reaction. Enzymes’ function varies inside living organisms. It breaks down large molecules into smaller ones so that they can be absorbed by creatures. For example, enzymes break down the starch chains into smaller molecules such as glucose and make them absorbable by living organisms. Without enzymes, metabolism of creatures would either progress in different steps or not be fast enough to serve the needs of the cell.
Nitrogen is an essential part of amino acids and nucleic acids, both of which are essential to all life. Plants absorb nitrogen in the form of nitrates, which are present in soil from natural mineral deposits, artificial fertilizers, animal waste, etc. After absorption, nitrates are converted to nitrites by enzymes and then converted to ammonia by another enzyme.
Minerals usually come from the soil, are dissolved in water and absorbed by roots of plants. There are not always enough minerals in the soil for plant growth or to maintain their health. For that reason, gardeners and farmers use fertilizers for their lawns and plants. Nitrogen is one of the major minerals that is usually lacking from the soil because plants need large amounts for growth and survival. Other minerals contained in the soil are phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, boron, copper, iron, chloride, manganese, molybdenum and many others.
What time of year is best to do the initial application?
Initial application can be made at any time during the spring, summer or fall.
Is there a temperature range beyond which it is not a good time to apply GlobalCare Plant Power?
The temperature range for application of GlobalCare Plant Power is 40 degrees F - 100 degrees F.
Is there a time of year that is the worst for application?
The worst time is when temperatures are below 40° or above 100°F.
Are there advantages to using an organic fertilizer (fish, chicken, manure, etc.) versus a chemical fertilizer? Can it be done right after the first application?
Organic fertilizers are superior to chemical fertilizers, but less is required if using GlobalCare Plant Power.
Do the enzymes accelerate natural breaking down of soil to such an extent that when you quit using it the soil rapidly collapses?
No. Once the enzymes are applied, they continue to work. Re-application is recommended only in 2-3 months to replace those enzymes that may be degraded during the growing season.
We have low growing shrubs near a parking strip where there is no grass, but the ground is very hard. Can I spray the GlobalCare Plant Power over the area to break up the ground for better growth of the shrubs? Or should I use GlobalCare Lawn Power?
GlobalCare Plant Power and Lawn Power will prove beneficial anywhere there is hard ground.
