There is no good or bad amino acid fertilizer
It’s very simple to explain, the main difference between plant source and animal source amino acid fertilizer is their source. The protein is divided into plant protein and animal protein, and the protein is decomposed to form the amino acid, which is the plant source amino acid and the animal source amino acid.
It is often asked which source of amino acid is better. There are also a lot of debate on this question. Each of them is rational. No matter what kind of amino acid, there is no good or bad.This question is like asking people , to eat meat is better? Or to eat fish is better? Or to eat soy is better? Why do people eat miscellaneous grains , fish, and meat ? And why the balanced diet should be healthy?
That is because the proportion of amino acids in different foods are different. 20 basic amino acids can not be covered and balanced by a certain kind of food. The different amino acids have their respective effects on the human body. For plants, the amino acid composition ratio of different sources is different. The effect on the physiological function of the plant is different.
How to identify if it’s necessary to use amino acid fertilizer?
People can crush protein food through teeth. Then enter the intestines and stomach. Decompose protein into polypeptide, oligopeptide, small peptide, free amino acid and so on. However, plants do not have these decomposition functions. It can only supplement the leaves or roots after artificial decomposition.
Although plants can synthesize all kinds of amino acids, but affected by adverse climate, diseases and insect pests, drug damage and other stresses.The synthesis of some amino acids is limited or the synthetic function is weakened. So it is necessary to regulate the plant to achieve various physiological balance through the amino acid addition of exogenous roots or leaves. To promote plant growth to the best state, which is also the purpose of our use of amino acid biostimulant.
The common sources plant amino acids are soybean, wheat, oats, corn and so on. Animal amino acid sources are wide, animal hair (feathers, bristles, etc.), silkworm pupae, animal blood, viscera, bones, low-value fish and so on can be hydrolyzed into available amino acids.
How to choose amino acid fertilizer?
The proportion of amino acids in the same plant source is also very different. For example, hydrolyzed animal hair contains higher cystine, serine, hydrolyzed. Animal skin bone contains higher glycine, proline. Animal blood contains higher Leucine, phenylalanine, corn, wheat contains higher glutamic acid.
Therefore, the effect of amino acids from different sources on crops is different. If it is necessary to improve the stress resistance of crops, the amino acids of animal skin and bone with high proline and glycine are the best choice. If increasing the lignification of plants, controlling shoots and increasing anthocyanins. The amino acids of animal blood sources with higher phenylalanine is better choice.If they are used for green leaves and promote growth, the effects of plant amino acids such as wheat and corn with high glutamic acid content are outstanding.
Therefore, there is no good or bad difference difference between plant source and animal source amino acid, only according to their characteristics, can we play a better role.
