That Little Bugger
 Nitrosomonas verse Yeast.
 Can NH4 remain NH4 and the weeds can starve.

Can NH4 remain NH4 to feed the crop plants and starve the smallest of weeds.


Meet the problem head on. Nitrosomonas.  

“Nitrosomonas is a very small plant that is out of place. It is a very small weed that robs society and crop production farms.” GJS   

Crop producers have been feeding the nitrifying bacteria and not the crop.  This is called nitrification….and not denitrification which is another story all on it is own.  

Now we can slow down and starve the Nitrosomonas and feed the favorable bacteria like Yeast and better yet feed the growing crop Ammonium which the crop prefers.  

Keeping this “Little Bugger” on the bench and not in the game while growing a good crop is key.  

Nitrosomonas is like a little weed in the crop robbing the plant of nutrients.  

Even though a more mature crop can use nitrate , valuable energy is lost to convert nitrate NO3 back to NH4 or Ammonium.  This is a 18% energy loss to convert back to Ammonium. 

This is one reason why only Ammonium is used in starter fertilizer. The young plant can not convert or assimilate Nitrate. Starter Fertilizer always starts with the word Ammonium because it is most efficient for the plant.  

Clean water and clean air comes with the use of a bacteriostat and not a bactericide for control of the Nitrosomonas.  

Remember the term -stat means to stay put or stall while the term -cide means to kill.  

The -cide function of controlling bacteria costs a lot of money, may impart control to other favorable bacteria and does require a full EPA review like N-serve at $15.00 per acre.  

Zinc30 provides a means to stall and starve bacteria like Streptococcus and Staphylococcus (Dr. Christopher DeWitt, Australia, 2103) by binding tightly with the Co-factor Copper29  or Manganesse25  in certain types of bacteria which includes Nitrosomonas and its Co-factor Copper29.  

This is the Achilles Heel of bacteria… The Co-factor is put into a metallurgical bind with Zinc slowing and stopping the movement of proteins past the cell’s importing nutrient valves. The transporter mechanism fails to supply nutrition to the bacteria.   

Targeted Zinc+2, Zinc Oxide, Zinc Acetate, and Zinc Sulfate stalls the growth of Nitrosomonas and allows other bacteria like Yeast to flourish.  

A small amount of Zinc is required and should not be over-applied and rates can be as low as 1 ounce per acre for Zinc Acetate….maybe $1.00  per acre to feed the Yeast and starve the Nitrosomonas with Exactrix® technology.  

One of the reasons there is such a run away problem with nitrate and nitrous oxide is the high population of  Nitrosomonas from depletion of acceptable Zinc levels in our eroded soils that need help, such as cover crops.  

Zinc is a valuable micro nutrient and critical to human health.  A lack of Zinc in the human diet results in many maladies of the human body.   

Low Zinc availability in the soil allows Nitrosomonas to be directly correlated to the rapid breakdown or oxidation of NH3 as soil placed NH4. NH4 erodes chemically to NO2, NO3 in presence of the “Little Bugger”. 

Depletion of  normal soil Zinc levels allows healthy Nitrosomonas colonies to rapidly convert  Nitrite NO2 in anaerobic conditions  to Nitrous Oxide  N2O….this is a Exactrix Target Theory. It is an educational fact never before explained to crop producers.  

Nitrous Oxide is a nasty Green House Gas and 300 times more damaging than CO2 to the Ozone layer.   Agriculture delivers Nitrous Oxide in profuse amounts of 62.5% of the total amount emitted into the air and ozone layer.    

Other Nitrobacteria are also in the depletion cycle to mobile Nitrate, NO3. Only Nitrosomonas has the ability to double step or convert back to  N2O, nitrous oxide  from NO2, nitrite.   

The double step capability of the bacteria Nitrosomonas is responsible for billions of dollars of Nitrogen lost into the environment as N2O and NO3..…. both upward into the ozone and downward into the water.  

For crop producers had the original or normal levels of Zinc in soil s of the Great Plains and PNW there would be much higher levels of commercial fertilizer performance and lower requirements for placed Nitrogen. 

What if  the deep North American soils had normal levels of crop available Zinc.  The crop producers would have much better crop root systems with higher yields.  Proper rates of applied Zinc will produce much higher levels of NPKS performance under the rules of mobility. 

Our  food supply needs Zinc at our original soil stored levels and this would produce a healthier society.


 Nitrous Oxide is 300 times more damaging to the environment than CO2.

Exactrix ZHXE-3200 with Nano Particle Reactor, Zinc and Zinc Oxide, Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Acetate is utilized in the reactor  Biological Weed Control for about $1.00 per acre with the plant nutrient Zinc and NP Zinc is also a bacteriostat.

Keeping the costs in line at miniscule rates of Zinc can produce amazing economic results in the overall per acre cost of fertilizer and good yields in the crop.

  • Zinc improves the plant health and maintains a vibrant soil life feeding Yeast as an example.
  • GHG as Nitrous Oxide can be greatly reduced by employing control over Nitrosomonas .
  • Zinc is unique since it favors human nutrition and improves the performance of soil bacteria like Yeast.
  • Rates as low as 1 ounce per acre can produce good results with Zinc Acetate as an example.
