Improved Plant Nutrient Use Efficiency
Research conducted by the University of Guelph (Rothstein, S. et al) demonstrated improved nutrient use efficiency in corn plants. Plants were grown hydroponically with Full Nutrients (FN), Low Nutrients (LN) and Low Nutrients with LCFX (LN+LCFX).
The LCFX treated plants improved nutrient uptake resulting in statistically significant increase in biomass, nitrate concentration, chlorophyll, starch, sucrose, and amino acid contents. The results indicated higher photosynthesis rates and availability of more nitrogen for protein synthesis in the treated plants.
