I am basically a bacteriologist. I work extensively also with Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae on rice (bacterial blight) and also with sheath blight (Rhozoctonia solani) in rice.
Testimonal, I am beginning to understand how your product works!
I have read carefully all the testimonies from growers and scientists. The best kind of microbial inoculants we have produced so far through research in biocontrol are those which have more than a mode of action. This is where current research is and it is exciting to know that that induced resistance is the hot subject today.
Proteins/Enzymes which could target chitin on plant or insect cell wall was a very attractive hypothesis, but in the field it did not work well when trangenic plants made to express chitinase genes failed to protect plants against fungal pathogens.
In your case, I see that you create "TERNARY " which can penetrate hard or waxy surfaces and act on hydrocarbon molecules. These attributes, (1) smaller size and (2) their ability to penetrate and become systemic in the insect pest/pathogen might explain its successful controlling effects. These two attributes are hard to create and obviously you have had success in doing this.
Now I have a clearer picture. That is why you call your product, a nutrient. That is what happens in the right sense. I think then that it might not act on any particular organelle/site but just cleans and controls the body of insects, thallus of fungi and other prokaryotic cells (bacteria etc). It is just great! Only synthetic products used to be this kind but you have a non-biological like product (derived from biological material(s)).
You have provided me with an incredible amount of information of your super bio-cleanser. I am really not familiar with EPA or its regulations as how they would classify this. It would qualify for the Darmstadt conference as a bio-inoculant.
In addition to the above, the growth aspects of your products increasing brix levels by over 100%, and increasing production in less time just adds to the mystery!
