Ionfx is a mix of genetically identified and patented bacteria, along with archaea and fungi. While many microbes live naturally in a plant, this mix of microorganisms has been selected to support, enhance, or supplement plant functions. Ionfx unlocks a plants ability to produce growth regulators and metabolites. Some benefits include: phosphate solubilization through microbial activity, reduced ethylene production (associated with aging and senescence), pH regulation, reduced reactive oxygen species, and general stress mitigation. The less a crop is stressed the more resources it has for maximizing yield.
