Phosphorus and Potassium Supplement
State of Emergency is a powerful Phosphorus (P) – and Potassium (K) – based nutrient supplement formulated for use in reproductive production systems during the early generative stages of reproductive growth (early flowering) and during the final stages of ripening in flowers, buds and fruits.
The increased use of phosphorus and potassium during the early flowering and late maturation of reproductive crops is well founded based on their respective biochemical, metabolic and physiological contributions during these stages of crop development.
A good nutrient system for vegetative growth is proportionally higher in nitrogen, but the most successful systems during the flowering stages are proportionally higher in phosphorus and potassium. And for good reason.
Phosphorus – “The Energy Element”
It is well established that phosphorus is key to energy exchange in plants. It is a principle constituent in the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) molecule that is responsible for the storage of energy needed to activate chemical reactions and conduct plant functions. The demand for energy is elevated during the reproductive stage of plant development. As plants transition from the vegetative stage, a great deal of energy is diverted to the production of flowers. As a result this high demand for phosphorus-based energy, phosphorus can quickly become depleted if not replenished.
During later stages of flowering, higher levels of phosphorus are also needed to provide the energy needed for developing fruit.
Growers interested in increasing yield via increased flower establishment and bud swell, will need a nutrient system proportionally higher in phosphorus. Growers will find that STATE OF EMERGENCY will satisfy this requirement.
