This is something evryone may find interesting. I made a post a while back on the same subject, figured I would bring it up again. I will give the source and link.
Stress such as High temperature, Low humidity, Frost, Pest
attack, Hailstorm, Floods have a negative effect on plant
metabolism with a corresponding reduction in crop quality
The APPLICATION of Amino Acids before, during and after the stress conditions supplies the plants with Amino Acids which are directlyrelated to stress physiology and thus has a preventing and
Amino Acids have a chelating effect on micronutrients. When
applied together with micronutrients, the absorption and
transportation of micronutrients inside the plant is easier.
This effect is due to the chelating action and to the effect of cell membrane permiability.
L - Glycine & L - Glutamic Acid are known to be very effective chelating agents.
I myself used a product that was full of Amino Acids, where it was appart of a organic program, it is clear Amino Acid apllications can be very important in synthetic fertilizer programs. I am not saying everyone go out and get some amino acid fertilizer but there is a reason why large ag companies use it where crop failure is a huge impact on income.
Please tell me your thoughts or experience.
