It was our intention to develop a natural fertilizer that enhances the growth of plant without using the usual chemicals such as urea, ammonium-phosphate, -nitrate, -sulphate, etc. which give up residues harmful to human, animal and environment. At the same time the fertilizer we were searching for must be suitable for use in Bio-Cultivation of the different crops.The best way to reach our aim was to develop a fertlizer which enables the plants to enhance their growth on the natural way. And this way is to enhance the natural photosynthesis of the plants by supplying carbon dioxide (CO2) of much higher concentrations than that in the atmosphere, where it exists at the concentration of 0.04% only, not enough for an optimum photosynthesis and opt8imum plant growth. On the other hand, in order to supply the plants with CO2 of much higher concentration than that in the atmosphere, this process must not lead to an increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to avoid increase of climate problems. Under these premises the development was definitely marked in such way that CO2 must be supplied to the plants from inside the leaves.
The following is really an Innovation in the field of fertilizer development and production:
The natural material containing enough CO2 in bound form is limestone (mainly Calcium Carbonate beside about 5% Magnesium Carbonate and some minor elements important for plant physiology). By milling limestone in specially constructed mills down to particle size <10 micrometer, we obtain Lithovit®, a very fine powder, whose particles are highly activated by means of the tribodynamic process. On spraying a 0.5% aqueous suspension of Lithovit® on the plant leaves, its so small particles penetrate through the stomata (breathing holes) of the leaves into the intercellular commpartments and set there CO2 free with high concentration according to physiocochemical reactions (please see the attached article: How Lithovit® acts as a fertilizer). In that way the photosynthesis takes place at optimum enabling the plants to grow with higher degree and obtaining higher yield.
And again everything happens on natural way: No chemicals! No residues harmful to human, animal or environment! No disturbance of the climate!
Excellent results have been already obtained using Lithovit® in Europe, Middle East, India, South and North America in growing a lot of crops such as the different vegetables, potatoes, the various fruits, sugarcane, hope, olive and traditional crops (wheat, barley, maize, rice (paddy), etc.). Wherever it was applied, it shows excellent results. The increase of the yield ranges between 12% to 50% depending on the crop and soil conditions. Furthermore the plants get more resistant against disease and are able to overcome stress in case of minor water supply. Lithovit® is recommended by the European Community for Bio-Cultivation.
