Catalyst Technology Drives Amp Agronomy Success
At the heart of the Amp Agronomy product line is Catalyst TechnologyTM, which is capturing the attention of the agriculture industry by delivering dramatic results. The testimonies from agriculture in 2017 are noteworthy. Validated reports include:
- A South Carolina sod farm that reduced the typical production cycle by four months for EMPIRE® Zoysia and Palmetto® St. Augustine.
- A bean farmer in Florida that increased his yield from 190 bushels per acre to more than 400 bushels per acre.
- An Alabama blueberry farmer increasing the size and yield of his fruit by 40 percent.
The results from the use of Amp Agronomy products are making believers out of those who were previously skeptical.
Protected by 10 different U.S. patents, Catalyst Technology is a process that employs ultra-sonic cavitation to produce a foliar product line with two unique characteristics. First, the nutrients are nano-sized (as small as four nanometers), which makes them right-sized to pass easily into the stomata of root hairs and leaf surfaces, which are only five to eight nano-meters wide. Second, in a process called carbon complexing, carbon is employed to render neutral the positive/negative charges of a nutrient so that it does not get tied up with other elements present in the soil or water. For example, the phosphorus in Root Driver, because it is neutralized, does not react to the charge of calcium and becomes calcium phosphate. It remains phosphorus and is thus readily available to the plant.

The net result of Catalyst Technology is a family of products that, due to their nano-sized, plant-available composition, have a typical application rate of only one to two quarts per acre. With the average cost of a quart ranging from $10–12, users can reduce inputs and increase yield, often with reduced labor and costs.
