Holganix uses active living ingredients to stimulate lawn growth naturally. This propietary, patent pending process begins with a compost tea base that sets it apart from the competition. Holganix then incorporates many other bio-nutrional products(like mycorrhizae and humates) that help to imporove plant life and allow for a massive reduction in the amount of chemical fertilizer and pesticide inputs. Healthy Grow
is coated with Holganix. Listed below is are the Holganix Components and how they are beneficial to your lawn.
Compost Tea Extract: Contains beneficial, indigeous mirco-orgainisms -bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes, improves soil quality and suppress plant disease.
Humic and Fulvic Acids: Supports respiration of micro-organisms in the soil, enhances seed germination and promotes root development and absorption of micronutrients.
Kelp: Stimulates uptake of pant nutrients, promotes seed gemination and plant cell devision.
Gluten: A nitrogen source that also has pre-emergent herbicide properties.
Endomycorrhizae: Penetrates plant roots and assist with water and nutrient uptake.
Ectomycorrhizae: Grow in association with plant roots and assist with water and nutrient uptake.
Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria: Aides in the nitrification process making nitrogen available from the air and soil.
Normal Flora: Bacteria normally found in the soil that help suppress disease pathogens.
Protozoa: Eats bacteria and release nutrients to the soil.
Beneficial Nematodes: Multi-cell organisms which eat bacteria, fungi, other nematodes and insects protectng plants from injury and disease and releasing nutrients to the soil.
Tea Tree Oil: Essential oil with anti-fungal and insect suppression properties; extracted from tea tree leaves.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae: A source of simple carbohydrates that aid in rooting and serve as a food source for micro-organisms in the soil.
Polysaccharide: A food source for micro-organisms in the soil.
Yucca Extract: A natural spreader sticker, wetting agent and soil conditioner.
Milky Spore Developer: Bacterium spores for suppression of Japanese beetle grubs.
Amino Acid: Building block of proteins and a nitrogen source for plants, essential for cell division and growth.
Chitinase: An enzyme that stimulates the destruction of fungi and insect exoskeleton.
Auxin: A plant growth hormone positively affecting cellular growth and differentiation.
Streptomyces: Bacteria that suppess against soil born plant diseases: Phytopthora, Pythium, Fusarium and Dollar Spot.
Trichoderma: Fungi that suppress root diseases: Phytopthora, Pythium, Fusarium and Dollar Spot.
Lignin Polymers: Lignin polymers present in Holganix were part of cell walls of plants. Resistant to further break down, these polymers help to create air channels in soil and assist in the aggregation of organic matter in the soil.
Secondary and Micronutrients: calcium, copper, zinc, iron, molybdenum, boron and magnesium.
Finally, the Holganix product line are 100% all natural and organic. These natural ingredients make Holganix one of the safest lawn products available today.
