Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What is BAM-FX?

BAM-FX® (Bio-Available Mineral Formula X) is an ionic concentrated liquid formula which mitigates stress, increases stamina, enhances biomass growth and the rooting system, thereby improving the overall quality of produce, plants, grasses and trees.

WHAT RESULTS AND BENEFITS CAN I EXPECT TO SEE WITH BAM-FX?

Using BAM-FX in your mineral nutrition program can enhance yields, lower costs per acre, mitigate stress and increase efficacy. BAM-FX appears to counteract the effects that are created inside environmentally stressed plants (flooding, excessive heat, drought conditions, over fertilization, wind and excessive chemical use, frost damage, excess salt and boron).

In addition to an overall increase in environmental stress tolerance, you may expect to see many beneficial results including: higher yields, less culls, increased biomass, greater Brix (sugar) content, higher levels of chlorophyll, higher quality and more nutritious fruits and vegetables, more robust root development and accelerated plant development including better seed germination and earlier flowering.

HOW DOES BAM-FX WORK AND WHY IS IT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PLANT MICRONUTRIENT PRODUCTS?

Unlike most micronutrient products, BAM-FX appears to positively affect aspects of plant physiology. BAM-FX has demonstrated increased absorption and the uptake of other minerals that together with the higher levels of nutrient utilization, can reduce run-off and increase performance with an overall reduction in fertilizers.

WHAT RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE ON BAM-FX TO PROVE ITS EFFECTIVENESS?

Research and development has included missions to the International Space Station, university trials, toxicity testing, laboratory studies and fifteen years in discovery with over 5 million dollars in R&D. Extensive third party validations and field trials on a large variety of crops across a broad range of climates and conditions have been conducted. Results have consistently demonstrated that applications of the BAM-FX micronutrient formula have shown superior rooting, thicker stemming, increased biomass growth, increased sugar/brix content, a higher nutritional value, an increase in yield, a more uniform yield, better taste, better color, fortification against environmental stresses, better and more efficient utilization of other micronutrients and macronutrients with better growth responses (faster to market).

HOW CAN BAM-FX INCREASE MY ROI?

BAM-FX can produce a substantial increase in “ROI” (Return on Investment) due to an increase in biomass, yields, quality of produce and reduction of culls. Additional savings may be realized through the reduction of fertilizer, fungicide and pesticide inputs. BAM-FX can improve your bottom line, increase crop production, mitigate crop stress and reduce runoff.  On which crops and plants may BAM-FX be applied and effective? 

BAM-FX has been tested and has shown to be effective on many common field crops (fruits, vegetables, grains and fiber), shrubs, trees and on certain specialty crops.  

ON WHICH CROPS AND PLANTS MAY BAM-FX BE APPLIED AND EFFECTIVE?

BAM-FX has been tested and has shown to be effective on many common field crops (fruits, vegetables, grains and fiber), shrubs, trees and on certain specialty crops.

HOW IS BAM-FX APPLIED?

BAM-FX is designed for direct soil drench and foliar spray treatment of leaves to prevent or correct pre-existing stress deficiencies as indicated by leaf, soil and water testing. BAM-FX may be applied through sprinkler systems, by tank trucks, backpack sprayers and aircraft. For smaller applications, BAM-FX may simply be mixed with tap water or other chemicals and applied with a hand sprayer. It is important that instructions and protocols be followed carefully with all BAM-FX applications.

DOES BAM-FX REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT OR HANDLING?

Proper mixing and handling is essential. BAM-FX is a low pH concentrate product. Low grade stainless steel equipment users should read the instructions carefully as pitting and/or etching may occur. All equipment should be thoroughly rinsed after use. High density polyethylene tanks and equipment are not affected. BAM-FX should be mixed and applied using only plastic containers. Spray nozzles should be plastic, stainless steel or other hard metals. It is important that product instructions followed carefully with all BAM-FX applications.  See BAM-FX® Product Label and BAM-FX® Safety Data Sheet for detailed information.

IS BAM-FX COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER STANDARD FARMING PRACTICE PRODUCTS?

BAM-FX is a versatile product and can be combined with other products to reduce labor, equipment use and energy costs. It is compatible with many standard fertilizer regimens. It can also be applied after dry fertilizer applications. Consult your BAM-FX product support representative before applying BAM-FX in conjunction with other products.

IS THERE ANY ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WITH THE USE OF BAM-FX?

When the prescribed BAM-FX protocol is followed, there should be no appreciable runoff of BAM-FX itself. At the concentrations at application, none of the ingredients in BAM-FX are toxic and no environmental impact is anticipated. BAM-FX may have an overall positive impact on the environment by allowing growers to use less NPK, which reduces runoff and water pollution.

DO YOU OFFER TECHNICAL GUIDANCE ON USING BAM-FX?

Yes, we have agronomists and crop advisors who are happy to assist you with incorporating BAM-FX into your crop program.
