Lithovit

LITHOVIT is a Bio foliar Fertilizer. It is natural limestone consisting mainly of (Ca, Mg) CO3, which supplies plants with CO2 in much higher concentration than that in the atmosphere and so increases their photosynthesis. It contains furthermore, a big number of micronutrients important for plant physiology.

What are Lithovit Related products?

These Foliar Fertilizers are:
A) Bio (organic fertilizers):

  • Lithovit/ 5% Boron
  • Lithovit/ 25% Amino Acids
  • Lithovit/ 25% Guano
  • Lithovit Soil
  • Lithovit Foliar
  • Lithovit Forte

B) Synthetic fertilizers (due to synthetic Urea and NPK):

  • Lithovit/50% Urea
  • Lithovit/NPK

How are Lithovit and its related products produced

Limestone alone, as well as together with Boron (Boron Oxide), Amino acids (powder), Guano (granule), Urea (granule), NPK (granule) are milled in Hitec-Nano-Mill rotating with velocity of 20,000 revolution / min down to extremely small particles of size between 200 nm and almost < 10 μ.

The particles collide with each other every 1/10,000 second with speed higher than super sonic and get so highly activated due to breaking down the chemical bond, deformation of the lattice and most important due to polarization of the electric charge within the particles, so that their surface becomes negatively charged. This process is called Tribodynamic Activation.

Benefits of LIHOVIT

  • Increases yield and improves quality and storage properties of the crop especially when plants are suffering under stress situations.
  • Reduces water requirement.
  • Intensifies growth and green coloration.
  • Enhances plant resistance against drought, frost, insects pests and fungal infection.
  • Enhances plant Supply with essential micronutrients.
  • On mixing with amino acids as nitrogen source, the Ca and Mg are bound as chelate complexes leading to their better transport and metabolization.
  • Especially the metabolization of Mg informing Chlorophyll is increased and so also the degree of photosynthesis.
  • Recommended by European Community for organic farming according to EWG 2092/91.

 

Lithovit Increases Plants Resistance to Drought

Once it gets hot plants increase transpiration. The concentration of solved products and so the osmotic pressure in the intercellular compartment increases, water transports from the closing cells around the stomata pore into the intercellular compartment to dilute its solution. The closing cells shrink. As they have elastic membrane in the middle, but less elastic one at the ends, these get tightly around the pore and close it.

Due to shortage of water and stop of CO2 supply the photosynthesis breaks down, plant become wilt and stunted. This is counteracted by Lithovit as follows:

  • Lithovit increases the concentration of solved products and so the osmotic pressure in the intercellular compartment especially after its transforming into Ca ions and CO2, so that the stomata closes faster
  • The closing of the stomata is accelerated by the action of Ca2+ ions that enhances the formation of the hormone ABA (Abscisic Acid) which transports the signal to the closing cell of the stomata.
  • On closing the stomata the plant hold back the water necessary for the photosynthesis.
  • Despite closed stomata, CO2 is still supplied to the plant by Lithovitinside, so that Photosynthesis still going on.

 

Effect of Lithovit on Plants Resistance to Frost

  • Water in plant cells contains the different metabolism products such as carbohydrates, organic acids and different nitrogen compounds. These lead to lowering its freezing temperature below oC so that plants survive even at frost.
  • Due to increasing the photosynthesis by Lithovit, the concentration of the metabolic products is enhanced.
  • The metabolic process (accompanied by reaction heat) is extended taking place even after beginning the frost.
  • Both factors act as “anti freezing agent” (see for instance Lithovit action in Tomato plants).

 

Lithovit Effect in Plants Resistance to Fungi

  • This effect is not yet explained completely. However, it is known that fungi activity is sensitively related to the pH of the milieu, where a variation of some tenths of a pH unit could be a deciding factor.
  • Very probably the decreasing pH on forming the Hydrogen Carbonate at night defends plants against fungi attack. This action is already reported in some papers.
