HOW PEPZYME WORKS:
Improved soil conditions provide a better environment for plant growth and support healthier, hardier plants that are resistant to environmental stresses of climate (drought/flood/freeze/wind).
Pepzyme improves soil tilth and fertility by stimulating the growth and metabolism of beneficial microorganisms such as nitrogen fixing bacteria, phosphate solubilizing bacteria and organic matter degrading bacteria. Pepzyme also assists with the digestion of organic matter. Pepzyme contains macro and micronutrients, naturally occurring organic compounds, enzymes and amino acids.
Pepzyme increases the amount of nitrogen available to the plants. Nitrogen is abundant in our atmosphere as a usable gas, however most plants have difficulty using nitrogen in this form and rely on nitrogen fixing bacteria for the conversion of these gasses into usable forms that plants can absorb. By stimulating the growth and metabolism function of these bacteria, Pepzyme increases the amount of usable nitrogen to the soil, which is then used by the plant.
Pepzyme also increases the amount of phosphorus available to a plant. Much of the phosphate, from which plants obtain phosphorus, is tied up in chemical compounds that plants do not absorb. Pepzyme stimulates growth and metabolism of microorganisms that break down these compounds.
ENZYMES – WHAT ARE THEY?
Enzymes are not a fertilizer, nor are they live microbes. Enzymes are products generated by the reproduction of live microbes that stimulate the reproduction of that particular strain of microbe. This is the reason the enzyme products distributed by Soil Technology consist of 151 identifiable enzymes and over 40 other enzymes. This produces a very broad and balanced spectrum of microbe stimulation potential.
It is very important to stimulate these broad ranges of desirable microbe populations in order to get the optimum benefits from biological management. Our enzyme products, which we call PEPZYMES, are also stable, which means that they are affected very little by sunlight, ultraviolet or climate conditions. This ensures the quality benefits built into the PEPZYME products. No other known enzyme products have the consistent quality, spectrum and stability of our PEPZYME products. Enzymes become a major factor in the production of the 8,000 to 12,000 lbs. of live organisms found in each acre of live soil, without which we could not achieve optimum germination or reproduction.
PEPZYME is non-toxic, safe to use and handle, compatible with most herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers.
