No fertilizers is the future

IONITE SUBSTRATES—from an idea to an innovative consumer product

The ionite substrate ZION is a result of nearly a 40 years of research of large group of scientists. Ion exchange soil is an innovative nutrient medium for growing plants containing the whole list of substances needed for efficient plant growth. These substances are associated with either natural ion-exchangers or synthetic carriers called ionites.

Ionite substrates are not fertilizers. They work on completely different principles. Substrates look like a highly concentrated composition of nutrients immobilized on an insoluble matrix where the ratio of nutrients is preliminary optimized to fit the needs of particular plants. Unlike fertilizers, ZION is a 100% ion exchange substrate, that allows for plants to perfectly grow without the risk of "root burn."

ZION vs. regular mineral fertilizers

Mineral fertilizers

Plants can be damaged by unbalanced fertilization

Ionite substrate ZION

Self-regulated balanced nutrition for proper and efficient plants growth

Overdosing, root burns could appear

Overdosing and root burns are impossible

Washing out of the nutrients from the soil

Capturing of the nutrients and release them by plant “request”

Environmental impact

Environmentally friendly, 100% natural substance

Highly sensitive to external factors (temperature, humidity

Insensitive to external factors (temperature, humidity)

Different fertilizers for different phases of plant growth are needed

Nutritious by plant “request”: releases particular nutrients to the soil depending on the phase of the plant growth

Multiple additions of fertilizers during vegetation period

One-time application of the substrate to the soil, prolonged activity

Nitrates presence, can be expired by time

Nitrateless nutritious media, no expiration date

Special qualification required to efficiently implement fertilizers

No special agricultural skills needed

Nutrient content

ZION ionite substrate consists of 60 times more nitrogen, 28 times more potassium and 8 times more phosphorus than most fertile black soil
