Essential Organic 1-0-1

A grower's essential soil amendment and biostimulant for better yields, fruit set and crop quality

Essential® Organic 1-0-1 is a 100% organic liquid that works both as an amendment for all types of soils and as a safe, effective root stimulant for plants in every stage of growth. Created by Growth Products, Ltd., an industry leader in technological innovations.

Essential Organic is a combination of organic materials made up of particles just slightly larger than atoms. The particles are finely divided and dispersed into a rich solution which has incredible stability and shelf-life. Each ingredient in Essential Organic provides a rich source of organic building blocks not found in typical N-P-K fertilizers.

A Natural Biostimulant For Every Stage of Growth

Derived from potassium humate, 20 natural L-amino acids, enzymes, simple & complex sugars, vitamins, kelp extracts, carbohydrates, hydrolyzed organic proteins, a natural wetting agent and natural biostimulants, Essential Organic is engineered to deliver an array of soil and plant solutions. Its proprietary blend of ingredients enhance soil structure, improve overall plant health and give growers better crops every step of the way.

Seeding & Germination:
Essential Organic increases both the percent of seed germination and the speed with which seeds germinate-even with difficult to germinate seeds. The secret lies in Essential's controlled mix of humic acids and natural wetting agents which increase seed coat permeability, and its other root stimulants. University trials at Iowa State showed a 50% to 70% increase in seed germination and rooting with Essential over IBA products.

Essential Organic is a safe and effective alternative to chemical hormones such as IBA and NAA when it comes to the propagation of cuttings. Essential's key ingredients stimulate callus formation and rooting on softwood and hardwood cuttings. Proven in side-by-side trials to be more effective then chemical hormones, Essential Organic used as a liquid drench lets growers avoid the labor-intensive and costly process of dipping cuttings.

Sizing-Up, Transplanting, Repotting:
Essential Organic is one of the few tools available for the grower to overcome the damages caused by transplant shock and sizing-up. Applied at these critical stages, the special ingredients in Essential Organic provide soluble organic nutrients such as sugars, L-amino acids and enzymes which are absorbed through the root system and boost the plant's metabolic activities such as photosynthesis, respiration, nucleic acid synthesis, and ion uptake. The result is healthier plants which don't skip a beat in their growth cycle.

Crop Development & Yield:
Used as a liquid drench or as a foliar spray, Essential Organic consistently improves blossom set and fruit set on a tremendous variety of crops. Essential's natural plant growth promoters produce auxin-like effects at each stage of plant growth. The auxin effects promote cell division and elongation, root growth and branching, blossom formation, blossom set, and fruit set to significantly increase crop yield. In addition Essential provides the sugars and minor elements necessary for tasty fruit.

Essential Organic is ideal for use on tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and other leafy crops. It initiates good seed germination and increased rooting, and can be used in the irrigation system to improve crop vitality and to extend storage shelf life.

An Essential Soil Amendment For Sustainable Agriculture

With Essential Organic, growers can renew rather than deplete their soils. By adding vital organic matter to depleted soils, Essential Organic dramatically reduces the effects of compaction, improves water penetration, increases nutrient holding capacity, and neutralizes excess salts in soils. The humic acid in Essential Organic prevents nutrient ions from leaching through the soil and holds them in a form readily available for plant uptake. Its high carbon content provides a food source for beneficial soil microbes and creates an environment suitable for advantageous microorganism growth.

Essential Organic BENEFITS:

  • Ensures faster and better seed germination
  • Offers improved rooting, increased blossom set & fruit set
  • Excellent on all crops, from seeding to harvest
  • Increases crop yield and quality
  • Can be used as a soil drench or foliar spray
  • Can be use used at all stages of growth
  • Adds vital organic matter to depleted soils
  • Neutralizes salts in soil from affluent water


Root Growth in Transplants
A series of rooting stimulation studies were conducted and root growth was recorded as the number of cm of new growth since the last measurement period. Measurements were taken weekly over 10 weeks. The treatments were applied 2 weeks after transplanting and again 6 weeks later. Essential demonstrated improved rooting on the transplants, as well as ODRM (Oven Dried Root Mass).

Plant Growth in Vegetable Plugs
A series of greenhouse trials were conducted over two years during which crops of several plants species (tomato, pepper, cauliflower, and melon) were seeded into plugs and evaluated for rate of germination, total germination, and plant dry weight. Essential Organic significantly and consistently produce plants with a high dry weight (at times greater than 2X the control). The opportunity exists to significantly improve plant growth via the incorporation of Essential Organic into a transplant plug program.
