Purple Cow CX-1 addresses the biological side of the soil health equation. Growers count on microbes to fix, cycle and/or solubilize minerals and other fertility inputs they apply. Adding biology along with minerals means uptake occurs more readily, and growers can reduce the amount of other fertility inputs they apply. Balanced minerals and diverse biology helps the plant produce the phytonutrients' (sugars, proteins, amino acids and more), that contribute to plant health, beauty and nutrient density (taste). It also supports the plant's ability to withstand disease pressures with modes of action that include: competitive exclusion, production of natural antibiotics and bio-sanitation. CX-1 is sold in a dormant state and requires a food source for activation. Use with BioActive Vegetable Supercharger (works as an activator!) and Purple Cow IndiCanja!
