Wetting agents are a proven crop management tool. Wetting agents, or surfactants, make water wetter thereby increasing the penetration of water into soil deeper and broader.
Water, as Agriculture’s most used carrier liquid, mixes with materials infinitely more efficiently when water tension is reduced using wetting agents. Additionally, as the water penetrates deeper and broader into the soil, the nutrients being carried with it also penetrate deeper and broader.
This gains an immediate benefit in reduced runoff and reduced burn off of nutrients, and in the case of soil with proper biology levels, the nutrients are taken deeper straight to the biology and quicker more efficient processing. Additionally, wetter water is also known to break down salt bonds, petrol bonds, and more quickly hydrate dry soils.
Most wetting agents on the shelf today are formulated from harsh, caustic detergents or ethoxylated surfactants. These introduce harsh pH solutions into your soil or combat your reservoir pH levels. Additionally, these types have questionable safety concerns.
Eden Blue Gold™ Base Blend undergoes our trade secret Eden Synergy process and is formulated from select herbs strong in saponin levels. Blue Gold™ Base Blend saponins are derived from: Aloe, Angelica, Bhringaraj Leaf, Black Cumin Seed, Kola Leaf, Butcher’s Broom, Calendula, Chamomile, Cardamom, Comfrey, Dandelion Root, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Ginger, Ginseng Root, Hibiscus, Maca Root, Moringa Leaf, and Yucca Root.
Of those who recognize the benefit of plant-derived saponins over caustic detergents, unfortunately, the market pretty much only offers saponins of the Yucca plant. At Eden, they do not settle for the norm or the ‘easiest.’ They came to discover that there is a structural variety to saponins derived from various plants. The number saccharide chains attached to the sapogenin cores can vary, as can the length of the chains. The cores can also be any one of a wide variety of polycyclic organic structures originating from carbon terpenes.
What does this mean to you? Certain varieties have been established in plant ecology to serve as antifeedants and to protect plants against microbes and fungi, while some have enhanced nutrient absorption and digestion aid in animals. Saponins have a range of industrial uses depending on the structured variety. Rather just utilizing a single plant source and singular structure, they have researched and utilized 19 plant sources for saponins to give you a comprehensive and wide variety of saponin structures for superior saponin benefits.
