Primacy ALPHA®

Foliar and Soil Nutrient

Optimize flowering and fruit set

Containing patented Verdesian technologies discovered by Los Alamos National Laboratories and the University of California at Riverside, Primacy ALPHA® works inside the plant to stimulate the efficient assimilation and utilization of nutrients. Primacy ALPHA also functions as a reproductive growth catalyst that collectively stimulates, intensifies and optimizes plant metabolism; encourages rapid plant nutrient uptake; promotes plant growth and enhances consistent crop quality and yield potential.
