ACT: Organic Molecules that Mimic Nature’s Nutrient Delivery System

Biofeed® products come to life through our Amino-Carbon Technology® (ACT). Creation of ACT starts with our proprietary multi-enzymatic process of biological transformation which converts select plant extracts and intracellular components into a concentrate of organic acids and bio-stimulants that promote the growth of both plant cells and aerobic soil organisms to enhance natural soil fertility. Biofeed products with ACT are University tested and time-proven to enhance both cellular growth and nutrient availability leading to improved plant growth and crop production.

Why Amino-Carbon Technology?

Amino acids share the same fundamental structure, which consists of a central carbon atom, also known as the alpha (α) carbon, bonded to an amino group (NH2), a carboxyl group (COOH), and to a hydrogen atom. The L-form amino acids found in ACT link together in chains, which as a group surround and chelate nutrients to allow easier absorption by roots and leaves and are required for plant metabolic processes as the building blocks of proteins.

 

The active components found in ACT dissolve insoluble soil nutrients allowing for improved uptake by plant roots. ACT remains active in the soil long after application where it improves the soil’s Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC).

ACT releases oxygen through the action of specialized enzymes which cleave water (H2O) molecules, thus releasing elemental oxygen into water and within the soil below ground to maintain a healthier aerobic root-zone. Increased oxygen also improves oxidation and reduction reactions that mobilize nutrients and stimulate the activity of beneficial aerobic microbes to readily digest or destroy harmful chemical compounds which may accumulate within the soil.

ACT helps to reduce sodium toxicity, balance water biology, improve root and soil interactions, and has been proven effective over a period of more than three decades through agricultural, aquaculture, environmental, and turf-grass university studies world-wide.

ACT is produced at our manufacturing facility located in Glendale, Arizona-USA and serves as the foundation formula for all of Biofeed’s environmental and aquatic products, fertilizers and soil management product lines.

Amino-Carbon Technology® ACT: Innovation That Grows!

Probiotic Nutrition

Maintaining an active microbial system in soil is the key to the bio-elimination of toxic chemicals and maximizing soil fertility. Like plants, microbes require nutrients to support their metabolic activities. Nutrients are described as elements that are essential for the growth or maintenance of bacteria and higher life forms. The molecular composition of microbial cells is fairly constant and indicates the nutritional requirements for growth. Water and carbon constitute 90% or more of cellular weight and are always major nutrients. Organic wastes in soils, waterways and sewage treatment facilities can provide these elements. However, a portion of the essential nutrients required for complete destruction of organic pollutants requires specialized nutrient complexes that support digestion of these matters into basic elements such as carbon dioxide, water and minerals. These specialized nutrients are components of Biofeed’s product base formula (ACT) which is generated from highly concentrated and proprietary plant derived ingredients and production methods. These natural compounds function as dynamic microbial accelerators and when applied to both plants and soils these stimulate cellular growth of plants and proliferation of indigenous beneficial aerobic microbial systems that are conducive to complete bio-oxidation of organic pollutants and chemical matters.

This vital enzymatic process is used to produce our Amino-Carbon Technology (ACT). A variation of nutritional combinations of ACT and nutrients are used to formulate over 55 different Biofeed products. Biofeed products deliver a compelling growth promoting effect at the cellular level to facilitate minute changes that bring dynamic results.

Enzymes

Enzymes are organic catalysts consisting of complex functional proteins. They play a vital role in all living cells. The biochemical reactions that support life are directly carried out by the catalyzing affect of enzymes. Reactions that would otherwise take many years to complete instead occur in mere moments due to enzyme function. All plant cells are nourished only by soluble nutrients. This solublizing of nutrients is accomplished to a great degree by the activity of a variety of enzymes. Enzymes, however,  are specific in reaction, for example; Protease is specific for protein, Urease is specific for urea, and our newly discovered H20-dehydrogenase (HDH) Enzyme System is specific for hydrogen=oxygen bonds, resulting in the release of elemental oxygen and hydrogen into the soil and water environment as it affects the water molecule. Biofeed products supply specialized enzyme-based products to stimulate the metabolic rate of soil and water borne aerobic microorganisms and to improve the mobility of tied-up nutrients, which in turn boost crop production and enhance the bio-oxidation and digestion of a wide variety of environmental pollutants.

Growth Stimulants/Hormones

A variety of growth stimulants are produced in the metabolic processes of certain bacteria, yeasts, molds and cyanobacteria. These include auxins, gibberellins, cytokynnins, florigen, vitamins, hormones and salycilic acids. These promote a variety of essential cellular activities such as root growth, healing processed, cell elongation, bud production and fruiting. In soils it has been determined that several of these natural compounds accelerate microbial activity resulting in improved soil fertility and subsequent root and plant growth. Extensive scientific research has further show that these biostimulants have a definitive and positive effect on the physiology of plant growth and crop production. The negative environmental impact caused by pesticides, herbicides, defoliant residue, and the over use or misuse of chemically derived fertilizers has resulted in destroying much of the growth of beneficial microbial systems in soils which would otherwise naturally produce and supply plants with these much needed biostimulants. Biofeed products supply these biostimulants at rates that have been determined by extensive field studies to provide maximum benefit to soil, plant and water systems.

Organic Acids

Organic acids are active components in Biofeed products. These include light weight molecular compounds including, carboxylic, P~beta hydroxy acid and over 20 other identified organic functional groups. These organic acids are generated through a series of proprietary submerged culture techniques to produce our Amino-Carbon Technology (ACT). Therefore, ACT assists a variety of beneficial biochemical reactions that improve the solubility of tied-up mineral nutrients to improve natural nutrition for plant-life and biological systems found in soils and water. The organic acids found in our ACT function as chelating agents. Chelates are unique organic molecules comprising of a mulitivalent compounds which capture individual nutrient elements thus holding them in a soluble state for easier plant up-take. ACT also acts as a natural buffer that reduces pressure from sodium and mineral salt accumulation, thus aiding in the detoxifying of harmful chemical residues and which may be present in both soils and waters.
