Natures Way to Higher Yields
Protects Crops Against:
- Heat and Water Stress
- Soil Compaction
- Poor Water Penetration
- Salinity and Alkali
The use of ThermX has been proven to result in:
- Increased water penetration
- Increased fertilizer uptake
- Increased permeability of heavy clay soil with salt and alkali problems
- Improved drainage, reducing salinity
- Increased water intake
- Increased root growth
Why use ThermX?
Growing conditions are never perfect. Crops are subject to many kinds of stress conditions that limit production and quality. ThermX helps plants overcome these stresses.
What is ThermX?
ThermX is a concentrated plant extract meal containing steroid saponin. This natural compound is found in certain desert plants like Yucca. Steroid saponin helps these plants overcome the adverse growing conditions of the desert. When placed in the root zone, ThermX helps crop plants, trees and turf in much the same manner.How does ThermX work?
Action in Soils:
Steroid saponin is a natural wetting agent that reduces surface tension. This action enhances better:
- Water penetration into the soil
- Subbing of beds
- Drainage of excess water from the root zone
Action on Plants and Trees:
Under stress conditions, steroid saponin increases the plant’s ability to utilize water more efficiently, resulting in:
- Improved seed germination and stand establishment
- Increased water uptake
- Improved fertilizer uptake
Irrigation Water and Nutrient Losses:
Water and nutrients are wasted if they aren’t used by the plants. The root systems are often denied the water and nutrients needed because of soil compaction, poor water penetration and subbing, and by the action of excess salinity and alkali. ThermX relieves these stresses, increasing crop yields.American Extracts supplies different agriculture products to suit everyone’s application needs. All are made from 100% natural yucca.
