Aminograms -Which Amino Acid for Which part of your plants
Glutamic acid: This is the precursor to new amino acids, through its transamination process. It
stimulates growth of meristems or tissues and increases resistance to stress.
Glutamate dehydrogenase is the key enzyme that transforms mineral nitrogen in fertilizer (which
cannot be assimilated by the plant) into protein nitrogen, which is directly assimilable.
Aspartic acid: This is a source of nitrogen for plants as it is involved in numerous metabolic processes.
Alanine: This facilitates the synthesis of chlorophyll, leading to greater photosynthetic working
potential. It is involved in plant hormone metabolism.
Arginine: This stimulates photosynthesis and delays ageing by activating the cell multiplication that is
the basis for growth.
Phenylalanine: This favours humic compound formation. It is a precursor to lignin, a component of
Hydroxyproline: This regulates flowering.
Glycine: This is characterised by its chelating action and as an essential part of chlorophyll synthesis.
It is involved in leaf formation.
Leucine and Isoleucine: This improves the quality of the fruit and increases production.
Lysine: This is important in the formation or synthesis of chlorophyll. It is involved in the plant
Methionine: This is an ethylene precursor, which increases the quality and quantity of production.
Proline: Its main function is to maintain the plant’s hydrous balance in the cell walls, resisting adverse
conditions (drought, salinity, etc.). It increases the percentage of pollen grain germination, especially
at low temperatures.
Serine: This makes plants resistant to stressful situations, adjusting the hydrous balance in the plant.
Valine: It is involved in the plant resistance mechanisms to stressful situations.
Tirosine: It influences the process of humus formation.
