  2. The AMALGEROL Effect

AMALGEROL Effects

AMALGEROL acts foliar and in the soil. Seasonally, a shift from soil to foliar action takes place.
In addition to protecting against stress and regenerating after stressful events,
AMALGEROL activates soil life, improves soil structure, promotes root growth and increases water retention

The advantages are numerous:
stronger youth development, earlier maturation, higher effectiveness, better quality, richer soil,
protection against biotic stress (pathogens) and abiotic stress (weather), as well as faster regeneration after stress or damage.
