Grigg Liquid Products
Grigg Brothers products have been specifically designed for foliar application and foliar absorption. All product contains "facilitators" which aid penetration into plant cells, effectively translocate to sites of action, and provide all or most of the nutrients needed by plants to chelate minerals. The facilitators are mineral specific, i.e. no two formulas are alike and are optimal for that mineral. In addition to special facilitators, Grigg Brothers products contain an organic base, consisting of natural organic compounds which function metabolically and are found naturally in the plant.
GRIGG BROTHERS only uses natural organic components that are selected to give the strongest chelate with a specific nutrient. Chelates differ in stability constants (strength, holding power of the nutrients). All GRIGG BROTHERS chelates are treated against phosphorus using a blend of natural organic and amino acids which will hold against phosphorus.
A single chelating agent is not the best for all nutrients. One nutrient may be held strongly, the others weakly by the same chelating agent. The form of nutrient (ionic state) is important.
Some products on the market are not 100% chelated. Some only put enough of the chelating agent in to claim its presence. Some chelating agents although classified as such by states may be ineffective. They also may not be present in high enough concentrations to keep the nutrient available for the plant. GRIGG BROTHERS uses enough of the chelating agents, regardless of cost, to fully chelate the nutrient.
The strongest chelate requires the proper form of the nutrient. For example, the ferrous form of iron is not chelated as strongly as the ferric form of iron with organic and amino acids including citric; thus iron sulfate used as a source with organic acids may be ineffective and poorly chelated. GRIGG BROTHERS uses ferric and ferrous in a combination at times so effectiveness is imperative for their customers. GRIGG BROTHERS uses the form of the nutrient and type of chelating agents to give the strongest chelate.
Ligno-sulphonates, Humic and citric acids are classified as chelates by most States. They definitely have a place but are not very strong chelates (complexes). Many companies use these and other chelates (and synthetic chelates) in their formulations. Effectiveness and translocation are main factors to GRIGG BROTHERS. GRIGG BROTHERS uses a blend of organic acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, and other natural organic components to give the strongest chelated and effective products.
All chelates may be combined directly with Nitrogen, Phosphate, and Potassium; and remain in solution. The organic chelates have a high stability constant and are biodegradable.
