REACH is a 100 % natural plant and root Biostimulant and efficient soil conditioner fortified with humic acids, amino acids, sugars, kelp extracts and carbohydrates to promote plant growth when used in conjunction with a regular fertilizer program.
REACH improves seed germination and seedling vigour by the combined action of key ingredients such as kelp extracts, amino acids, vitamins and carbohydrates. The natural auxins, cytokinins and their precursors in Reach activates enzyme systems required for metabolizing food stored in seeds. Reach metabolizes stored foods such as fatty acids, complex oils, starch and proteins to provide the energy for seeds to germinate, and support seedling growth during the initial establishment of the crop, pasture and grass. It also softens up the hard seed coat to help plumule and radical emergence. Reach can be very beneficial as a root-dip for transplants in order to overcome transplant shock and promote quick plant establishment. It can also be used to promote plant growth on all types of horticultural, vegetables, greenhouse and nursery crops by speeding up the availability of important sugars, amino acids and carbohydrates.

ROLE OF SUGARS AND CARBOHYDRATES IN PLANTS
Sugars in most plants exist in the mono, di, and polysaccharide forms (simple sugars). Mono and disaccharides are used in the respiration process to generate energy which run various metabolic processes including essential oil production, production of growth hormones, synthesis of structural proteins, and absorption of nutrients. The polysaccharide form of sugars which includes starch, a form of carbohydrate plants produce as food source through the process of photosynthesis. Carbohydrates are the building blocks of plant structure, form and functions. The inclusion of carbohydrates in Reach
ROLE OF DIFFERENT AMINO ACIDS INCORPORATED IN REACH
Reach is fortified with natural amino acids and proteins derived from sea weed extract and fish emulsion. It contains all the essential amino acids required for protein synthesis and synthesis of enzymes necessary for key processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, and synthesis of plant hormones. It also contains traces of non-essential amino acids such as taurene, carnosine and citrullin which ameliorate growth and development of plants through the production of vitamins.
Alanine : increases synthesis of chlorophyll, the green pigment; regulates opening of stomata and improves drought tolerance.
Arginine : enhances root development, synthesis of polyamines and improves resistance to salinity stress.
Aspartic acid : enhances seed germination, synthesis of proteins and provides nitrogen during stress periods for growth.
Cysteine : sulphur containing amino acid that maintains cell function and acts as antioxidant.
Glutamic acid : improves seed germination, chlorophyll production and activates defence mechanisms against insect and pests.
Glycine : a natural metal chelator, favours new growth and helps in synthesis of gibberellins.
Histidine : regulates opening of stomata and provides carbon skeleton for hormone precursors.
Isoleucine and Leucine : improves resistance to salinity stress, increases pollen viability and germination to facilitate seed set.
Lysine : enhances chlorophyll synthesis and increases tolerance to drought stress.
Methionine : enhances root growth and regulates stomatal movement.
Phenylalanine : improves the production of defence compounds and lignin.
Proline : helps in drought and high temperature stress tolerance, provides nitrogen and improves chlorophyll retention during stress periods.
Serine : enhances pollination, stress tolerance and formation of humic compounds.
Threonine : Improves tolerance to insect-pest damage and enhances humification process.
Tryptophan : Auxin precursor and improves the synthesis of aromatic compounds.
Tyrosine : Increases tolerance to drought stress and increases pollen germination.
Valine : Enhances seed germination and stress tolerance.
ROLE OF VITAMINS IN PLANTS
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) and Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) are two major natural vitamins present in Reach. These vitamins act as antioxidants and promote the synthesis of enzymes and growth hormones. In addition they are essential for:
HUMIC ACID, CELLULOSE FIBRE AND ASH CONTENT
Incorporation of humic acid in Reach helps restore soil structure; its chemical, physical and biological properties promote nutrient and water retention in the root zone, and improve the population of natural beneficial bacteria found in soil. Humic acids deliver organic carbon into the soil and being present in pre-dissolved liquid form, are far more efficient in restoring critical carbon/nitrogen balance than dry granules.
Cellulose, a complex carbohydrate, is the essential component of plant cell wall. It helps in wound healing of cuttings taken for root development. As a result the cuttings retain their moisture status and ambolisms are minimized, this helps in quick rooting of the cutting. Ambolisms are the formation of air bubbles in the vascular tissues of the cuttings and as such is the number one cause of wilting due to breakage in the water column of the cuttings from the rooting medium. Cellulose fibres also act as a food source for bacteria in soil, retains calcium in soil, and is broken down through biological processes to provide carbon into the root zone.
The ash content reflects the presence of the minute quantities of trace minerals that are vital for plant growth and development.
