LITHOVIT® is an innovative product series of tribodynamic activated and micronized natural CO2 foliar and soil fertilizer from Germany. They have selected natural limestone deposits with micronutrients and various essential trace elements. Due to the process the product is readily absorbed by the plant.
Harmless to humans and animals.
Liithovit is 100% natural and is suitable for use in organic farming according to Council Regulation (EG) Nr. 834/2007 – European Community.
Stones (minerals) like Dolomite can be subjected to special treatment so that they are able to affect the functions of plants and improve them.
LITHOVIT® is a stone that helps the plants to grow and to thrive… Effect of LITHOVIT® on photosynthesis: the most important function in plant growth…
LITHOVIT® means Stone giving Life. Litho – (from Greek λίθος – lithos, ‘stone’)vit – (from Latin vita – meaning ‘life’)
LITHOVIT® Chemical Makeup
At night LITHOVIT® takes CO2 from the atmosphere as well as from dew and plant respiration and is converted to hydrogen carbonate. During the day the temperature increases, the water evaporates. This change sets CO2 at high concentration on the leaf surface, which diffuses instantaneously through the stomata. LITHOVIT® therefore acts as a long term reservoir supplying plants with CO2. The kinetic barrier of the reaction above is overcome by the tribodynamic activation of the LITHOVIT® particles.
Remember Lithovit product MUST be used with a non-ionic surfactant.

We looked for a substance containing high quantities of CO2 in bond form. We wanted high quality nutrients, harmless to humans, animals & the environment. The material was converted in a technical process into a foliar fertilizer that releases CO2 at “high concentration”.
The release of nutrients takes place inside the leaves, as well as directly on the leaf surface in order to diffuse instantaneously into the leaf.
Dolomite is milled in a hightech mill, rotating up to 20.000 revolutions per minute. It is ground into to an extremely fine powder with particle size much smaller than the stomata pores of the plant leaves. During the milling process the particles are highly activated by means of the so tribodynamic activation. Once LITHOVIT® is suspended in water and sprayed onto leaves, the particles penetrate through the stomata into the intercellular compartment and release CO2 with high concentration according to a physicochemical reaction at the cell membrane. CO2 diffuses into the cell and enhances the photosynthesis.
Energy can never be destroyed nor newly created. Energy can only be transformed from one form to another. Only a small part of the very high mechanical energy is converted to heat due to friction. Most of the energy is converted (tribodynamically) to activation energy of the particles due to the very high speed of their collision. The activation energy is manifested in breaking the chemical bond between crystal lattices, deformation of the lattice and polarization of the electric charge within the particles in such way that their negative charge is shifted to the surface, whereas the positive charge remains more or less at the center. The polarization of particles charge is the most important form of their activation.
There are two Mechanisms responsible for CO2 release from LITHOVIT®
LITHOVIT® particles penetrate the intercellular compartment and dock with their negatively charged surface on the outside of the cell membrane. This induces a negative potential which attracts the positive hydrogen ions formed in the first step of the photosynthesis through the membrane to outside. These dock on the carbonate groups of the LITHOVIT® particles forms carbonic acid which decomposes to carbon dioxide and water. Not all LITHOVIT® particles penetrate at once through the stomata. Most particles remain on the leaves surface and penetrate frequently when they get wet at night by dew.
