Use AminoA+ to protect sensitive crops from frost risk.

                      Use AminoA+ to protect sensitive crops from frost damage.

In the UK, the weather is predicted to cool down, with frosts forecast, just as many sensitive crops and orchards are flowering, so there is serious potential for damage and economic loss. Certain amino-acids such as Proline and Threonine act as natural anti-freeze and reduce the freezing point in the plant cell. This prevents or limits the damage that can be caused by late frosts.

AminoA+ is a highly concentrated biological crop biostimulant that contains every essential amino-acid in the L form. Applications made to flowering crops before moderate frosts ( -3-4oC) can prevent the freezing of the cell cytoplasm and subsequent damage.  

        Treated Strawberries 3.5 kg ha AminoA+ 4 days after -3.5oC frost     Untreated Strawberries 4 days after -3.5oC frost.


We recommend applying 3.5 kg ha AminoA+ in 500 litres water as a foliar spray to flowering crops before a frost event. AminoA+ is totally water soluble and suitable for applications as a foliar or through fertigation systems.

In the event of crops being frosted AminoA+ can be used to remediate damage, apply 2.5 kg ha as soon after a frost event as possible, and repeat every 7 days until the crop recovers.
