Empowering home gardeners with high-grade harvests opens the door for real food independence which would bring positive change, health-wise, community-wise and environmentally-wise.
MISSION, Texas (PRWEB) July 07, 2020
Minimalist gardening brand Fitleaf® announces new state-of-the-art plant nutrition concept, offering home gardeners and urban farmers new ways to grow plants, providing options for achieving real food independence to lead a healthier and self-sustainable lifestyle. Fitleaf’s concept is brought by one of its partners who has employed it for over 30+ years in the commercial field.
Incorporating four carefully-crafted water-soluble nutrient formulas:
1. Plant ENERGY® Root
2. Plant ENERGY® Boost
3. Plant ENERGY® Bloom
4. Plant LONGEVITY® Supplement
Plant ENERGY formulas include macro, micro, and secondary nutrients, while the Plant LONGEVITY provides calcium. All 4 formulas are used with the proprietary FitNute Calculator, a freely-available app (in iOS and Playstore), the software calculates detailed growing variables to generate complete plant nutrition formulas tailored to the grower’s operation.
Working in soil-based and hydroponic systems, people can grow food year-round in any location. Variables the FitNute Calculator considers include:
2. Tank/container size
3. Irrigation or stock solution
4. System and area specifications.
The calculation provides gardeners with different quantities of the four nutrient formulas, creating a crop-specific, stage-specific formulae, ensuring plants receive exactly what they need for full growth. By allowing the grower to experience a plant’s true potential without technical expertise, the path to real food sustainability is laid.
A high-grade harvest that ends at high-end supermarkets shares superior characteristics in terms of: yields, aroma, flavor, nutrient content, shelf-life and size. “Fitleaf’s plant nutrition concept gives home gardeners the tools that many commercial growers use to feed the world,” said Gerardo Gutierrez, Fitleaf’s co-founder. “Empowering home gardeners with high-grade harvests opens the door for real food independence which would bring positive change, health-wise, community-wise and environmentally-wise.”
Fitleaf® believes its technology couldn't happen at a better time, with a strong push to adopt healthy plant-based diets. Anyone can grow their own food for an optimal diet, providing ownership of their food supply and its treatment during production. With one in three households growing food, the US has the highest participation in the last decade, with food gardens growing from 36 million to 42 million, especially by younger generations. Additionally, the unforeseen pandemic has increased participation further. Fitleaf® is optimistic that its system encourages gardeners to seek substantial positive change collectively achieved, including self-sufficiency, healthier diets, environmental stewardship and ending community hunger.
