Prudent 40PLUS combines two effective and complementary technologies to maintain plant health, Prudent phosphite fertilizer, and Pennamin amino acids, in one easy-to-use product, according to a news release from the company.

“Prudent 40Plus combines the benefits of Prudent urea phosphite fertilizer with the stress-fighting characteristics of Pennamin amino acids pre-blended in the right ratio for maximum performance in one convenient jug,” said Don Pucillo, President of LidoChem. “It makes the farmers’ and growers’ jobs a little easier.”

Prudent 40PLUS highly concentrated phosphite fertilizer (40 percent PO3, expressed as P2O5), is formulated with patented urea phosphite and Pennamin amino acids. The amino acids are the building blocks for proteins, help move nutrients into the plant, and play important roles in almost every plant function. Since they are “free” amino acids, they are immediately plant-available.
