Terra Alba™ provides a natural, eco-friendly solution for a more direct and efficient delivery method of agricultural agents. Utilizing its covalent bonds and Tetrahedral Spheres as a natural reservoir, Terra Alba can load, store, and control-release a range of agricultural agents uniformly and in appropriate dosages. On the molecular level the twin sheet structure of the chemical bonds have just enough space between the sheets to serve as a carrier and release mechanism for added purposeful compounds, otherwise known as cation exchange. Terra Alba release rates can be tuned to match the duration of a growth or reproductive cycle, eliminating the need for frequent spraying or application by the end-user.
POTENTIAL USES INCLUDE:
Agricultural agents: pesticides, fertilizers, essential oils, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, nutrients, growth stimulants, vitamins, and hormones
Applications: crops, tree crops, plants, shrubs, trees, and control of fleas and ticks on animals
Terra Alba™ safely stores the agricultural agent throughout the usage process and protects it from degradation by means of external influences. Additionally, handling is made safer for the end user as exposure to the agent is blocked. This more efficient method of application means customers can safely apply agents in lower amounts, prevent harmful environmental run-off, and reduce labor hours. All of these benefits translate into significant cost savings.
