Amino Elite®

Product Description and Characteristics

A microbial digested blend of amino acids and kelp with macro and micro nutrients

AminoElite® is a foliar fertiliser produced by a unique microbial digestion process. It involves the breakdown of deep-sea fish emulsion and crustaceans into a form where plants can rapidly absorb the available nutrients through their foliage or through their root system.


This unique process, used to manufacture AminoElite and developed through 25 years of R&D, allows us to preserve beneficial microbes and creates nutrients in the form of absorbable amino acids. Plants will rapidly absorb these nutrients in a noticeably shorter time than with conventional fertilisers.


Unlike most other liquid protein sources, AminoElite is produced via a unique ambient (room) temperature process. This process involves bacterial digestion which preserves the protein molecules. In doing so, beneficial microbes are unharmed and continue to increase over time. Increased microbes will improve your soil biology as well as improve your plants nutrition.



Amino acids are the essential building blocks for plant growth. AminoElite has a series of L shaped amino acids. These amino acids are good chelating agents, which facilitates nutrient absorption through the foliar surface and through the root system, transporting nutrients more efficiently throughout the plant. Most soils have deficiencies of trace elements. AminoElite is a concentrated source of both macro and micronutrients. It will provide organic nitrogen to your plant and soil and beneficial microbes to your soil.



Deep-sea crustaceans are a good source of chitin. The presence of chitin and the enzyme chitinase, enhance the immune system of the plant.



  • Healthy plants are better able to resist environmental stresses such as pests, disease and extreme weather conditions.
  • The correct balance of Micro and Macro nutrients will aid the plants ability to produce uniformity in fruit size, colour, and shape.
  • Microbes and bacteria help supply organic nitrogen to the plant and soil.
  • AminoElite can enhance the uptake and assimilation of trace minerals to rapidly correct minor micronutrient deficiencies.
  • Improving soil microbial activity can aid the reduction of bulk fertilisers use and assist with unlocking built-up nutrients.
  • AminoElite has a Nil withholding period.

AminoElite can be mixed and applied with most commonly used pesticides, however, AminoElite should not be used with selected herbicides.

We strongly recommend checking labels for compatibility as well as testing in a small area prior to widespread application.

AminoElite is rainfast in 15 minutes. We suggest not applying if rain is expected shortly after application.

For optimal results, it is recommended to use with the Xtend™ plant oil adjuvant, registered by GrowGreen Australia. Its application ensures better wetting of the treated surface and prolongs the retention time of the solution on the leaves.

Amino Elite® should be stored at + 5°C to + 35°C. For prolonged exposure to lower temperatures, IBC containers are preheated for 24 hours prior to application to activate microbial activity. Exposure to direct sunlight is not recommended, but it is desirable to keep the product in a well-lit place so that the microbiological process is not interrupted. It is recommended to use within 14 months of the date of manufacture.

How GrowGreen Fertilizers help Plants against Drought

Drought is a devastating natural hazard, due to the negative effects of the climatic change, the percentage of the planet affected by drought has more than doubled in the last 40 years (FAO). Water deficit in plants is considered as one of the major abiotic stresses (Jaleel et al., 2009). Plants exposed to severe drought
