Liquid Fertilizer | Aminogro is produced through a proprietary industrial digestion process of crustacean shells and other marine wastes from the Australian seafood industry. The final liquefied "broth" is fortified with trace minerals and Vitamin C to produce a naturally complex plant and soil food containing free amino acids, polypeptides and proteins.
Nutrients are rapidly absorbed into plants in the presence of Liquid Fertilizer | Aminogro. This significantly improves fertiliser efficiency and plant response times, particularly when the plant is under physiological or environmental stresses.

Amino Acid Based Plant Biostimulation
The basic management objective for maximizing net photosynthesis (plant food production) and minimizing physiological disorders is to provide the best possible growing conditions for uniform growth throughout the growing season. Uneven growth results from environmental (temperature flucuations, frosts, moisture levels, salt levels, chemical damage) stresses.
Any mechanism or means of assisting plants to maintain more uniform and lasting growth, particularly during periods of intermittent stress, will minimize the chance of yield and quality loss during periods of adverse conditions. Aminogro was designed for this purpose through using L form amino acid based plant biostimulation.
Liquid Fertilizer | Aminogro® contains the L form amino acids normally produced by plants. It is manufactured using a process called enzymatic hydrolysis. The process extracts amino acids from carefully selected marine waste material, utilising specific enzymes to break the peptide bond of protein. Unlike other types of hydrolysis, (acid and alkaline) enzymatic hydrolysis extracts free L form amino acids which are biologically active (100% plant available).
Plant Stress Management and Nutrition
Adding Liquid Fertilizer | Aminogro® to your normal plant nutrition program is an economical and ecologically sound approach to plant stress management and well balance plant nutrition for better cropping rates and quality.
The action of the L form amino acids in Aminogro combat these reactions by:
- Increasing water potential
- Regulating osmotic pressure
- Slowing down the photorespiration process
- Increasing net photosynthesis
- Preventing stomatal closure
Chelating Properties of Liquid Fertilizer | Aminogro®
The chelate formed by L form amino acids and a metallic ion retains the properties of the two compounds of the chelate and maintains its biological activity at the cellular level.
The chelate has the following features:
- It is not phytotoxic (will not burn a plant)
- It facilitates the absorption of nutrients by increasing the permeability of the cellular membrane
- It maintains iron and calcium solubility, thus strengthening the action and absorption of iron and calcium chelates
The effectiveness of the L form amino acid chelates in Aminogro is particularly high at the foliar level and can remedy minor deficiencies in a plant that often have no visible symptoms.
Pollination and fruit-setting
Crop yields are a direct function of a successful pollination and fruit set. It is very important that the pollination and fertilization processes must occur under optimum conditions.
The application of Aminogro contributes to a successful pollination and fruit set:
=> The amino acid is a nutritive attraction for pollinating insects. It is mostly important for the insect pollination species.
=> The nutritive substances located in the pollen grain are sometimes not enough to nourish it during all its cycle. The application of extra nutritive sources are necessary in order to complete its development. Amino acids are one of the vital nutritive sources of the pollinic tube development.
The addition of proline (amino acid) and glutamic acid (amino acid) increases the germination quality of the pollen grain and makes a longer pollinic tube. This significantly increases the fertilization of ovules in the ovary and hence successful and complete fruit set.
