GROWTH B&B is a liquid fertilizer made from blood and bone.

It is designed as a total
replacement, one step fertilizer containing:

1. A balanced supply of the major nutrients N, P, K (10 – 4 – 7) all readily plant available. This formulation
is derived from the process of converting blood and bone into a liquid suspension. Blood and bone has
agriculture always been known for its effectiveness as a ground applied solid fertiliser. In its liquid form blood &
Bone makes these major nutrients available through both the leaves and roots. Not only is it more
convenient as a liquid but by foliar application or fertigation the amount applied can he fine tuned to the
various needs of different crops.

2. Organic matter from blood and bone including amino acids, albumin, globulin, cholesterol and calcium.

3. A carefully balanced formulation of all the essential trace elements and minerals.

4. Two natural growth promotants, Tricontanol and Gibberellic Acid.

TRIACONTANOL - TRIA
TRIA is a carbon straight-chain fatty alcohol and occurs in certain waxes and in the foliage of some plants. It is
shown as CH3(CH2)28CH20. Its effect on stimulating plant growth and crop yields by increasing the growth in
the number of cells, has been studied extensively in the United States, China, Japan and India. TRIA has
been shown to have beneficial effects toward improving the quality of fruit and crops as well as enhancing
plant health, vigour and root development. TRIA is also particularly helpful to plants that are under stress from
transplanting or adverse climatic conditions.

ORGANIC BASED
Of particular interest to growers will be the positive effect on crop quality, yields and the Brix/Acid ratio. Several
physiological effects have been observed, including rapidly increased levels of reducing sugars, free amino
acids and soluble protein. There is a consistent increase in the Nitrogen content of plant samples and in the
redistribution of Nitrogen within plants. Also evident are increases in carbohydrate synthesis resulting from
stimulation of photosynthesis, and changes in the activity of several enzymes have been recorded. These

FERTILISER
factors will make a significant contribution to flavour, appearance and keeping qualities for all crops treated
with GROWTH B&B.

GIBBERELLIC ACID - GA
GA is widely distributed in all plants and is shown as C19H2206. It is often used by horticulturists, on its own, to
assist with the development and improvement of certain aspects of growing. For example stimulation of
flowering, berry set and quality improvements. As a contribution to the efficacy of GROWTH B&B, its broad
action is to aid in the growth of cell size and stimulate the plant to take up and use the nutrients provided.
