Extensive research is ongoing in order to add to the better understanding of nutrient requirements of the different cycad species.

GREENHOUSE TRIAL PERFORMED TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF CYCAD BOOST, ROOTSTIM AND GROWSTIM ON THE GROWTH OF MAIZE AND CRYSANTHEMUMS.
Maize: From the biomass yield results it was clear that Cycad Boost alone had a substantial positive effect on the growth of maize and in combination with the Rootstim treatment resulted in the highest (statistically significantly higher) yield. The root yield results showed that Cycad Boost alone resulted in the highest root yield.
Grow Stim for the stimulation of growth in slow growing plants (Bio Stimulants).
Chrysanthemums: From biomass yield results it was clear that Cycad Boost alone had a substantial positive effect on the growth of chrysanthemums. Cycad Boost in combination with both Rootstim and Growstim resulted in the highest above ground yields.
The Rootstim treatment alone resulted in the highest wet root mass and in combination with Cycad Boost resulted in the highest dry root mass. Cycad Boost and Growstim in combination were also effective in stimulating root growth.
Dr. J.A. Janse van Vuuren (PhD.) | Prof. A.S. Claassens (DSc.). Research report, October 2015. GREENHOUSE TRIAL PERFORMED TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF CYCAD BOOST, ROOTSTIM AND GROWSTIM ON THE GROWTH OF CYCADS.
Currently 2016, extensive trials with 3 species cycads are underway to evaluate the new granule sustained release Boost GSR 1 & 2 as well as the water soluble Boost 1&2, Growstim & Rootstim. A variety of traditional fertilizer products and practices are included in the protocol.
Organic Acids– Source of energy ATP
Fructose – Energy source
Macro-Nutrients – Enzymes & co-enzymes
Growth Regulators – Auxins & Cytokinins
Fulvic Acid – Carrier of nutrients
ROOTSTIM, GROWSTIM & BOOST 1 & 2
(water soluble or granules sustained release)
With transplanting of plants (cycads; trees etc. ) or removal of suckers from cycads, the normal energy pathways in the cells of such plants are altered or caused to shut down.
By supplying plant with energy (fructose), and organic acids that can sustain the normal metabolic pathways intercellular, the stress on the plant is diminished.
By stimulating a plant with a more normal metabolism to grow (Cytokinins & Auxins) and also supplying it with Macro- and Micro nutrients, the mortality of transplanting big plant plants, cycads or suckers decrease considerably.
