Effects on terrestrial flora and fauna

In the case of terrestrial flora and given the proper characteristics of the product, substantial increase of the plant's vital processes have been observed. The product favours germination of the plants, influences the growth of roots and leafs, activates blooming etc.

None of the tests performed with fowl and farm animals showed signs of poisoning or alterations of any type, even if the dose and time of exposure and observation were increased.

Effects of aquatic fauna and flora

Information about toxicity to beneficent insects

Diverse organisms have been exposed to different doses of the product, with the dose being increased proportional to the body mass of the organism. Absolutely no signs of intoxication or any type of effects or reactions nor genetic alterations have been observed.

Information about product mobility and disposal of empty packing

The product's consistence is of microfine powder, therefore it has to be protected from humidity at storing to prevent its decay.

Given the proper packing conditions, for storage the same basic precautions apply as for any other powder of similar characteristics.
