Highly Potent Bio-Organic Foliar Fertilizer
SYRUPLAST BIO-ORGANIC FOLIAR FERTILIZER is the flagship bio-organic product of the Mindanao Institute of Sustainable Technologies (MIST). It is a substance in syrup form especially formulated to optimally boost plant flowering and fruiting ability and enhance plant health and resistance against pests and diseases. SYRUPLAST efficiently achieves this purpose through the combination of its two special components which are not often found in many similar products.
- Essential Nutrients. The first component of SYRUPLAST is a potent mix of macro nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium and sulfur; as well as concentrations of primary micro nutrients, particularly zinc, copper and manganese (see table). These essential nutrients were sourced from carefully selected organic mineral extracts, sugars and fruit juices, including amino acids from fish and selected types of seaweeds and botanical plants. Through these high grade substances, SYRUPLAST ensures that the treated crops have sufficient supply of essential nutrients to boost their health, yield and resistance to diseases and pests. In addition, SYRUPLAST contains organic matter and organic carbon, which contribute to nutrient retention and turnover, soil structure, moisture retention and availability, degradation of pollutants, carbon sequestration and soil resilience. In other words, these organic substances help maintain a neutral pH in the environment, improves the capacity of a soil to hold water and nutrients, and allows their slow release, thereby improving the conditions for plant growth. Particles of humus in organic matter help the soil to stick together and allow nematodes, or microscopic bacteria, to easily decompose the nutrients in the soil.
- Beneficial Microorganisms. Talking of microscopic bacteria, the other crucial and literally ground-breaking component of SYRUPLAST is comprised of legions of carefully cultured colonies of indigenous microorganisms (IMO)(such as beneficial bacteria, actinomycetes, fungi, algae and protozoa) and plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), including Mycorrhizae, Tricoderma and Bacillus. These beneficial microorganisms colonize the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and enhance the microbial interactions around the plant ecosystem thus stimulating plant hormone production which, in turn, increases the processing and availability of primary nutrients to the host plant. This most special and unique component of SYRUPLAST makes it many times more effective than other regular foliar fertilizers in the market and establishes its position as a truly ‘bio-organic’ fertilizer.
Thus, as a sum of these two components, SYRUPLAST is basically a ‘living’ substance that provides crops with the perfect combination of essential nutrients and the beneficial microorganisms — a combination that delivers significantly higher yields and longer productive life spans from treated crops. These results are further boosted when SYRUPLAST is used in tandem with the MIST ORGUANO BIO-ORGANIC BASAL FERTILIZER. The joint action of beneficial microorganisms from these two MIST products is illustrated in the schematic diagram below (Relevant data and testimonies from greenhouse tests and actual application of SYRUPLAST in farms by MIST clients are currently being organized to be added in later posts).
Application. The SYRUPLAST BIO-ORGANIC FOLIAR FERTILIZER provides best results with one-time application (2 to 4 weeks after plant germination) at a ratio of 1 tablespoon mixed with 1 liter of clean water (16 tablespoons of SYRUPLAST per 16-liter knapsack/sprayer or 2 liters of SYRUPLAST per 200-liter drum of water). Alternatively, SYRUPLAST can be applied twice at 1-2 weeks interval at half the above recommended rate. Or, if used in combination with the ORGUANO BIO-ORGANIC BASAL FERTILIZER or other commercial (inorganic) fertilizers, half the above recommended ratio will still result to favorable effects. Application rates may be slightly increased depending on soil conditions. MIST Bio-organic Fertilizers autonomously regulate the nutrient intake of plants thus pose no risk of overdose. These Bio-organic Fertilizers are generally compatible with other commercial fertilizers and agricultural chemicals.
SYRUPLAST does not contain chemicals or organisms that are harmful to human health or the environment. The MIST supports global efforts to recycle, reuse, reduce plastics to protect the environment. We buy back used SYRUPLAST bottles for recycling.
Pricing. In line with our corporate vision and mission, MIST set a pricing scheme that is affordable to ordinary farmers and gardening enthusiasts. The market price of SYRUPLAST is often significantly cheaper compared to products with similar claims, including those produced from countries outside the Philippines. MIST also provides large discounts for bulk orders and/or long-term supply contracts.
