We work extra hard to provide you with precise specifications and broad usage data. New PPM tables are generated for each batch of each chem. This is important because the weight per (scoop) volume and and exact purity differs between every batch. All chemicals have the scoop weight & purity printed on the labels. The printed scoop weight is based on the white scoop size (1/32 tsp.). As an exclusive service, buyers may request custom range PPM tables. Due to the lengths and ongoing growth of the chem guide's, printed instructions aren't generally included.

Unlock Full Throttle Growth Boosting!
All plants regulate their growth, development, and behavior by Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) Hormones, which in most cases move through the plant from one part to another. Fertilizer provides fuel for plants to grow, but doesn't force them to do so. Hormonal signaling dictates the the plant to do so, and the fertilizer is like the 'gasoline' fuel (energy) to carry out such signaling.Think of it as fertilizer is the fuel, where hormones are the gas pedal (or brake pedal) of various plant growth characteristics.
By treating plants with PGR's you can not only alter the ways they grow, you can boost their growth at the same time. The reason is because it requires plant energy to synthecize these signaling phytohormone chemicals. This requires energies that during treatment spares the plants from needing to 'waste', meaning more of the energies the plants have access to are spent on the actual growth that the PGR's are signalling the plants to do.
ATONIK USAGE GUIDE:
Guide Last Updated: 3-15-14 (under construction)
Nitrophenolates are a unique class of natural biostimulant plant growth regulators that instead of signaling direct tissue growth effects as with more common ‘proper’ PGR’s, nitro’s stimulate the production of important plant chemical antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POX) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px). This boosts plants overall health much like antioxidants protect humans from a wide range of diseases including cancer.
Nitro’s are fertilizer synergists, that can increase the absorption of the nutrients while balancing any antagonism between fertilizers. It can be feed through the root system, which stimulates root growth, or can be sprayed directly onto plants. When mixed with other agrochemicals such as herbicides and pesticides, the boosted antioxidant activity helps speed the plants recovery from unintended effects. Atonik (aka Chaperone, Asahi SL) is used in cotton, sugar beet, rice and soy crops. Studies have demonstrated larger tomatoes and peppers. When applied to plants, this nitrophenolate cocktail is rapidly converted to the antioxidants plants produce naturally for coping with oxidative stressors. As the trials of growth burden those antioxidant levels it eventually begins to wear down on the plants defenses, which in turn may hamper harvest quality and size. Atonik Safety: In a field investigation into tomato & cotton post-harvest residues, Atonik was found to be below detectable limits. The main nitro’s in Atonik are Sodium 5-nitroguaiacolate, Sodium ortho-nitrophenolate and Sodium para-nitrophenolate. These active ingredients are found naturally in plants, and produce effects related to natural plant chemistry making their use very safe, as the Environmental Protection Agency agrees: “These nitrophenolates occur naturally in plants, where they act as growth regulators. When used as growth enhancers, these substances do not present any known risks to humans or the environment. …No adverse effects to humans are expected from use of pesticide products containing these nitrophenolates. First, plants rapidly convert these nitrophenolates to other harmless natural substances. Second, the tiny amounts applied to crops do not affect the exposure of people who eat the treated crops. Used only in tiny amounts, the active ingredients are rapidly converted to harmless other natural substances.”–EPA Moving on to mammalian biology, in one rat study, Atonik supplied in drinking water for 60 days showed virtually no toxicity effects. In a similar study, Atonik supplied to piglets in their feed showed no toxic effects yet boosted their growth rates. Packaging: 1-50 Gram amounts are currently packed in poly (clear) ziplock bags. 100 Grams come in foil mylar ziplock bags. .5-1 KG bulk amounts come in sealed foil mylar bags.
Atonik Usage Examples:
Using Atonik as a Seed Germination Enhancer: In one study on the effects of sowing seeds while treating with Atonik, Barley & Wheat showed improved disease resistances in addition to long term yield increases up to 5% 1. Using Atonik to Root Cuttings: Grape is an well documented plant type where Atonik helps the rooting of cuttings 1. Using Atonik to Promote Plant Growth & Yield: In a trial with Arabidopsis thaliana, plants had positive effect on majority of measured parameters and processes. They were more advanced in growth and development as demonstrated by increased plant height (23%), leaf area (16.5%), inflorescences (56%), siliques (246%), fresh weight (31%) and dry matter (27%) 1. Another remarkable study, with raspberries, showed a fruit yield across 3 different cultivars of 41% 1. Atontik has also demonstrated positive yield effects with Oilseed Rape 1, Soybean 1, Cotton 1, Up to 50% increase yields from Feverfew have been reported 12. The only plant noted as not having any real positive effects, during this research thrust, was Corn. Using Atonik to Increase Disease & Stress Resistance: In a study of Rose plants infected with powdery mildew, black spot & rust, Atonik exhibited marked positive improvements in plant disease resistance 1. In a simulated Acid Rain trial, with Sorghum plants, Atonik showed the best enhanced resistance of all other biostimulants tested 1. In a soybean study, Atonik proved to be top-tier effective at helping plants resist drought conditions minimizing yield loss 12. Atonik has shown effective results in protecting Sugarbeet plants from herbicide damage 12. Atonik has also been demonstrated to increase plant vigor under water stress with Grape 1, Sugarbeet 1, Using Atonik to Resist Growth Stunting & Dormancy: In one study, tomatoes stunted via cold vernalization showed significant positive responses in every metric measured 1. Atonik has also shown, several times over, spring frost resistance in Oilseed Rape plants 1. The same can be said for Cucumber plants, but not Atonik-hardened seeds 1.

How to Dissolve Sodium Nitrophenolate (Atonik):
How to Dissolve Atonik Using Water: Simply apply virtually any amount of Atonik directly into virtually any volume of water. For instance, 1 teaspoon of Atonik will readily and rapidly dissolve into only one gallon of water, or less.
How to Dilute & Mix Sodium Nitrophenolate (Atonik):
NOTICE: After much deliberation with this substance, and a year of trying to make sense of the math involved, the current thinking here is that the normal highly precise PPM table method just doesn’t work. Compared to the math in all of the many studies that were read in the making of the Usage Example Guide above, and what it takes to dissolve this industry standard highly-cut product into exacting measures is completely implausible. Following large scale measure methods the so-called “dilution-times” methodology might work, but when attempting this in small scale precision work it just doesn’t work. For instance, in making 1 Liter of “100 PPM” solution, the material is so dark and strong smelling there’s simply no way it can be right. What has been decided is that the one method this lab never considers using is the only method: dissolving the material and checking it as it goes with a PPM meter. Normally with our more pure products (that lack by-default cutting agents), following the PPM tables is the surest way to pinpoint the the precise product PPM outcome. Especially in the case of Gibberellic Acid which isn’t ever ‘pure’ so any PPM shifts shouldn’t inherently be counted towards the resulting PPM changes.This might not even be strange, technically speaking, as Atonik is a compound of 3 chemicals, where the other PGR’s are always mostly-pure singular chemicals.
The math we’ve settled on (with the current batch) is:
1 white scoop per Liter makes 40 PPM solution.
After reading every paper that mentions Atonik out there, almost quite literally, to make the Usage Example Guide, there’s just no other way it makes sense. Meaning not even for the researchers using it, the PPM table method we normally deploy here at Mass Spectrum was ever used. We’re convinced they used the PPM Meter Methodology in their work. This is the first instance in 2 years of ongoing research into all of these PGR related substances that things just didn’t add up and another method must have been culprit. This isn’t a bad thing, instead it might be a testament that as we’re the original consumer level vendor to bring this amazing product to light, we’re the only PGR vendor around that truly study these sciences in attempts to live by and believe our own products.
