Armament: Designed to Increase Nutrient Uptake

Foliar-Pak Armament is our leading soil carbon technology. The soil-based amino acid polymer was explicitly designed to increase the amount of nutrients delivered to the plant within the soil.

Why do we need Armament?

Armament bridges nutrition gaps in many difficult soils we are growing in. It’s been effective in soils with high pH, low pH, high phosphorus, high bicarbonates, high clay content, low CEC, and low organic matter. These are all situations where nutrients are tied up or unavailable and where Armament has been very successful at freeing up these nutrients for better plant uptake.

The above photo demonstrates Armament’s ability to help facilitate nutrients into the plant. Here is the process we used to get our results.

We took two hydroponics buckets, added Armament to one, and the same nutrients in both. After a set time, we took tissue samples. We then measured the number of nutrients in the tissue of each bucket. The bucket that had Armament in it, as you can see, had a far significant increase of nutrients taken up than the bucket that did not contain Armament. Nitrogen was increased by 30%, while phosphorus increased by 14%. Potassium and Calcium increased by 34%.
