What Is Micro Carbon Technology®?

Micro Carbon Technology® (MCT) is a proprietary blend of extremely small organic carbon- and oxygen-rich molecules that act as a source of carbon and provide an ultra-efficient vehicle to move nutrients and other molecules into the plant through the soil and/or the leaves.

MCT is developed from a unique organic material from a mine in Idaho that is composed of many organic acids similar to leonardite. The product is a soft, humic material that is highly mineralized and rich in carbon, that was never compressed or heated to become coal. We break down the humic acids into small carbon molecules (MCT), concentrate them into a liquid, and use this as a base for all our products.

MCT is an ultra-efficient delivery system that allows growers and crop managers to achieve far more with much less product. With MCT, growers can decrease input volume while increasing yield. Many inputs harm the soil: Fertilgold® Organics products have a positive environmental impact while promoting overall soil and plant health. Also, MCT provides an instantly available carbon source for the plant and soil that plants and microbes can immediately use.

The size of the carbon molecule  makes the difference. While humic acids can have thousands of carbon rings and fulvic acids can have hundreds of carbon rings, our MCT carbon molecule has fewer than 10 carbon rings.

The size of the carbon molecules makes the difference.

Products powered by Micro Carbon Technology® can be up to 10x more efficient than conventional fertilizers. Building upon an MCT base results in:

  • Enhanced activity and diversity of beneficial microorganisms.
  • Improved soil structure.
  • Enhanced nutrient availability and uptake.
  • Dramatically increased product efficiency.

Fertilgold® products with Micro Carbon Technology® rapidly deliver essential nutrition to crops for optimal growth, fruiting, and vigor. The results are higher quality harvests, increased crop yields, and maximum profit.

Micro Carbon Technology®  offers 5 primary benefits to growers:

Enhanced activity and diversity of beneficial microorganisms.

Good farmers farm crops, great farmers farm the soil. Important to having great soil is building an active and diverse microbiome that structures the soil and moves and processes nutrients in ways most beneficial to plants. The more microbes in a soil, the more fertile that soil becomes. Micro Carbon Technology® is a nutrient carrier that feeds both beneficial microorganisms and plants the carbon and nutrients they need to function at their best. The available carbon-based food source attracts a diverse population of microorganisms that outperform harmful microorganisms to create a soil biosystem where crops thrive.

Improved soil structure and plant vigor through microbial activity.

With Micro Carbon Technology® providing a carbon- and nutrient-rich food source to attract and grow a diverse microbiome of beneficial soil microorganisms, the soil and plants benefit in numerous ways. Microorganisms (1) break down plant and animal matter into humus and release minerals in soluble forms that are easier for plants to absorb; (2) bring nutrients into the soil from the atmosphere (nitrogen fixation) and from locked up mineral reserves that are already in the soil; (3) protect plant roots from pathogens and parasites; (4) hold soil aggregates together while increasing porosity, creating channels through which roots can grow and water can flow—increasing infiltration and reducing runoff; (5) enhance nutrient transport, drought tolerance, and resistance to disease and other stressors; (6) create conditions that improve seed germination, transplant survival, and root growth; and (7) degrade soil pollutants.

Enhanced nutrient availability and uptake.

Plants are built to process carbon. They take it in through the air and from the soil and use it to produce root exudates (about 30% of carbon fixed by plants is excreted as exudates) that feed the microorganisms in their rhizospheres. When nutrients are complexed with the very small carbon molecules in Micro Carbon Technology®, plants pull in the carbon+nutrients faster and more efficiently than they pull in nutrients alone. Along with the enhanced microbial activity converting nutrients to more plant-available forms, this means that Fertilgold® Organics nutrients with Micro Carbon Technology®are more available to plants and are quickly and effectively taken up into the plants.

Dramatically increased product efficiency.

A large percentage of most fertilizers applied never actually reach the plant, a huge waste. Liquid Fertilgold® Organics with Micro Carbon Technology®, applied directly to the plant foliarly or to the roots through irrigation, puts the nutrition right where it’s needed and keeps it there. This is why our customers tell us about how they are consistently able to apply less product but still get better crop yield and quality.

Additional source of carbon for soil, microbes, and crops.

Every time a Fertilgold® Organics liquid product is used, whether added directly to the soil or applied foliarly to the plant, an extra helping of micro carbon is also being delivered. Carbon is essential to all life, including plants and beneficial soil microbes, and the extra carbon supplied as very small molecules just make everything work a little bit better—resulting in higher yields with better quality.
