Surprise….? But it is true. Assume you are in a hydroponics store and looking for some hydroponics nutrients for your plants and you see two different companies products ‘bloom enhancer labels’ and you try to decide which product will be good for you.
When you observer closely both the labels and both have the same ingredients listed on the labels then its obvious the next look will go to the price tag. And its very natural you will chose the cheap one to save little money of yours. But the only issues is you are not aware about product which contained a whole lot more ingredients cost a little more money cause what ingredients used are not listed on the label and the fact is the one you dint chose have the lots of things which surely give you bigger flowers and yields.
Moreover, the bloom enhancer you didn’t chose would easily do this for you because it contained an additional twenty amino acids, citric and ascorbic acid. Plus a whole bunch of other goodies that were not allowed to be put on the label under any circumstances in any way.
There’s a little-known and unofficial organization in Missouri called the American Association of Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO). Its members are representatives from the big agriculture companies and many government offices that regulate fertilizers.
This all started way back in 1930, by AAPFCO and state regulators when they formulated a stringent list of what they consider to be acceptable “plant food ingredients”. Unfortunately this list is dated and is not applicable to any of the progressive growing technologies and hydroponics. Due to this, today’s hydroponics nutrients and their labels are way more tightly regulated than vitamins and supplements ingested by humans. As hydroponic growers, even though we realize that there are a whole bunch of newly discovered compounds which are useful for growth, the nutrient manufacturers are not able to mention the same on their labels.
In fact the rule dictates that if a hydroponics nutrients manufacturer wants to put “non-listed” ingredients in their products and list those substances on the labels, and tell how those substances help your crops, it is almost nearly impossible to convince AAPFCO and state regulators.
