Plant Growth Regulator
BRANDT GlucoPro is a revolutionary new Plant Growth Regulator and the first molecule of its kind in agriculture.
"An elegant scientific advancement in agriculture" - Russian Academy of Science
BRANDT GLUCOPRO is based on the research and discoveries of Dr. Arthur Nonomura and the late Dr. Andrew Benson. Dr. Benson is one of the most renowned plant scientists of the 20th century and one of the world’s top experts on photosynthesis. Dr. Benson’s work includes the discovery of the Calvin-Benson cycle and his colleague was awarded a Nobel prize in chemistry for their work. Dr. Benson’s research continued under the leadership of Dr. Nonomura and in 2014 a joint venture was formed with BRANDT to develop this revolutionary new technology: BRANDT GLUCOPRO.
The Importance of Glucose in Plants
All living cells require a continued source of energy to carry out their biological functions. One of the primary sources of plant energy is glucose, which is created by the plant during photosynthesis. Glucose also plays a role in the formation of starches and cellulose.
Factors that Limit Glucose Availability
While glucose directly impacts plant development, there are factors that can limit glucose availability inside the plant. One of those factors is the binding of Lectin proteins and glucose molecules. Lectin is a protein that is present in all plants and found in high concentrations in plant seeds and roots. The protein has a natural tendency to bind to glucose. When this occurs, the glucose is fixed to the Lectin and not available to the plant to use. Being able to turn off Lectin’s affinity to bind to glucose is the key concept behind BRANDT GLUCOPRO technology.
BRANDT GlucoPro is not registered for sales in all countries and/or U.S. states. Please contact BRANDT concerning the registration status of the products in your area.
BRANDT GlucoPro is currently registered for sales in the following states:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- New Mexico
- South Carolina
Applying BRANDT GLUCOPRO at planting and in early plant growth stages releases glucose that is fixed inside plant seeds and roots, which stimulates germination, root growth and tissue growth. Subsequent applications of BRANDT GLUCOPRO during high growth periods provide an additional supply of energy to the plant during fruit and vegetable development. The net result is:
- Increased yield and premium marketable yield
- Increased harvestable weight
- Larger fruit size and fruit count
- Increased quality
- Improves firmness and flavor
- Increased brix at harvest
Mechanisms of Action
BRANDT GLUCOPRO is a ground-breaking new technology that disables Lectin proteins to prevent them from binding to glucose. The patented mechanism of action, “unlocks and releases” the glucose that is bound to the Lectins. This frees and releases the glucose into the plant, providing the plant with a flush of energy to carry out its biological functions.
