Pentakeep. The only product containing 5-Aminolevulinic acid
Your aim is to achieve a maximum yield and optimum quality, preferably using as few chemicals as possible. By applying the nutritional supplement Pentakeep, you support the crop so that the plants are stronger and more vital during the entire cultivation.
Pentakeep-S is a liquid nitrogen fertilizer and the only product in the world which contains 5-Aminolevulinic acid. 5-ALA is present in every living organism to a limited extent. By means of an extra application to the plant, photosynthesis, the production of sugars and dry matter will increase.
This can be compared to the formula: sunlight + CO2 > sugar and oxygen. It is known that extra CO2 under light conditions increases the production. With Pentakeep, this process can continue for longer, because the lack of CO2, as a result of which the process would stop again, is not an issue.
The application of Pentakeep results in more production and a better quality. However, it is not just the production which benefits from the extra dry matter and energy. The crop also becomes stronger and more vital. Since the plant becomes more robust, it will also be less vulnerable to diseases and pests.
The composition of Pentakeep is as follows:
NPK (Mg) 8-5-3(3)
Boron, Copper, Dtpa-iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Zinc, 5-Aminolevulinic acid.
It has been proven that these nutritional elements, in combination with 5-Aminolevulinic acid, have a strengthening effect on the growth of plants. The added fertilizers also ensure that the 5-Aminolevulinic acid remains stable and increases absorption.
Since Pentakeep-S is dosed in small concentrations, the added fertilizers will have little effect on the normal nutrition. It is therefore important to supply the normal nutrients. Monitor the absorption initially, because Pentakeep will improve the absorption so the quantity could be adapted.
For foliar feeding, the fertilizers also work as foliar fertilizers.
Pentakeep was developed by the Japanese research institute Cosmo Oil. This product can be applied as foliar fertilization or via the nutrient solution.
5-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA)
5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) is a molecule which occurs naturally in plants. 5-ALA is the basis of life for mankind, animals as well as plants. The substance is produced by the plant itself, but the production is limited by the speed of the metabolism. When Pentakeep is added to the plant, the metabolism speeds up. As a result of this, the conversion of the simple sugars into multiple sugars, which takes place in the chloroplasts and mitochondria, takes place continuously as a result of which the plant produces more energy which it can use for various processes.
For plants, 5-Aminolevulinic acid is essential for the formation of foliage. Furthermore, the plant produces more sugars and 5-ALA increases the absorption rate of fertilizers. At night, the plant burns off less sugars and salts from the soil penetrate less quickly. In short: the stress tolerance increases. The plant is more resistant to extreme conditions such as temperature fluctuations and a lower level of light.
The plant will also become more robust. It can tolerate more than an untreated plant and it is easier to steer it to the desired results. In addition, the plant is less vulnerable to diseases.
In addition to its application in Pentakeep for the agricultural sector, 5-Aminolevulinic acid is also used in the medical sector for, among other things, the treatment of skin cancer, to increase hair growth and to treat anaemia. Currently, various tests are being carried out to be able to increase the medical applications of 5-ALA.
