Foliar: Nitro-30 can be used on all field crops, vegetables and permanent crops such as fruit and nut trees, as a foliar spray application or via irrigation system to correct nitrogen deficiencies. Nitro-30 can be applied as a ground spray. Always apply with enough water to obtain adequate plant coverage. It can be applied by aerial application as a concentrate with sufficient water to achieve adequate plant coverage. Fertigation: Nitro-30 can also be applied to soil as a band, sidedress or injected through the irrigation system; sprinkler, drip or center pivot.

Nitro-30 liquid slow release nitrogen is a unique technology that provides crops with high quality, steady, uniform and safe feed of nitrogen. As a foliar feed, it is absorbed into the leaf cuticle and reserved there. The nitrogen is steadily released and is absorbed through the stomatal openings as the plant requires it, avoiding unwanted rapid growth spurts. Studies show that Nitro-30 has reduced nitrogen leaching and volatilization by up to 75%, so that the amount of soil applied nitrogen can be reduced, while improving crop yield. Nitro-30 will provide up to a twelve week nitrogen release, saving you the time and labor of repeated fertilizer applications. Field studies in Europe and the US have confirmed that foliar application of Nitro-30 quickly corrects nitrogen deficiencies and that nitrogen rates can be reduced to less than ½ of soil applied rates. Nitro-30 has the lowest salt index of all nitrogen fertilizers (salt index of 2 - 4), significantly reducing burn potential that results from urea, ammonia, and nitrates. It can also be used as a sticker to enhance pesticide uptake. It can be applied to soil as banded, sidedress or injected through the irrigation system; sprinkler, drip or center pivot or by low volume aerial application, as a concentrate, with sufficient water to achieve adequate plant coverage.

GREENHOUSE & NURSERY:

Nitro-30 is a high quality, concentrated, slow release nitrogen solution. It has the lowest salt index of any nitrogen source at 2 - 4. It is ideal for both supplement feeding and constant feed of nursery stock, for both foliar and root uptake. This clear liquid can be injected through fertigation, drip irrigation or overhead sprinkler systems. For Supplemental Feeding: Use between applications of granular coated fertilizer to level off nutrients that are often not available or depleted because of adverse weather conditions. This will extend nutrient availability at the end of feeding cycle to avoid costly hand topdressing. Apply at the end of growing cycle prior to shipment, and as a final feed to avoid labor, waste and spillage. For Constant Feed: Use on all nursery stock, potted and containerized plants as both foliar or root feeding.

TREES & ORNAMENTALS :

The nitrogen release period for deep root injection extends 3 to 6 months depending on soil and climate conditions. There is no danger of phytotoxicity. No special agitation is required. For trees, apply 1 lb. nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. (under canopy). Inject 4" - 8" below soil surface, into root zone, with correctly calibrated tree fertilizer injection equipment. For ornamentals, apply ¾ lb. nitrogen twice a year as a soil drench.

MIXING PROCEDURES :

• Fill water spray tank with approximately ½ water. • Begin mixing or circulation. • Add desired amount of Nitro-30. • Add compatible micronutrients.

NITRO+ K 22-0-16 PPM Rates

Nitro+K (22-0-16) is a highly effective, crystal clear liquid nitrogen / potassium solution that can be applied by ground or by air. Because of the sticker benefit of the slow release nitrogen, there is improved K uptake. Nitro+K does not contain any chlorides or nitrates. The low salt formulation was developed to supplement standard soil fertility practices as a foliar feed on crops. Used as a foliar applied nitrogen / potassium source the amount of soil applied nitrogen can be reduced, thus decreasing losses from leaching and volatilization. Each gallon of Nitro+K contains 2.66 lbs. nitrogen and 1.9 lbs. potassium. Nitro+K can also be used as a sticker to enhance pesticide uptake.

Plugs

NITRO-22 combines the benefits of SMART (slow release) nitrogen with the cost-effective economics of Ammonium Sulfate. Quick absorption by the plant results in faster start up, even at low soil temperatures, with the added benefit of SMART Nitrogen. Use when a liquid type of ammoniacal nitrogen source and sulfur is required. Nitro-22 has a neutral to slightly basic (7.5 - 8) pH and is a clear liquid solution, containing 22% nitrogen and 4% sulfur. It is compatible with most liquid fertilizer materials. Nitrogen and sulfur are important components of proteins. Sulfur deficiency can affect the plant’s ability to utilize nitrogen for protein synthesis. When applied, ammonium sulfate decomposes quickly in the soil to form sulfate sulfur. This sulfur is immediately available for plant uptake, whereas elemental sulfur (S) must undergo oxidation for longer term release. The advantage of Nitro-22 is that the sulfur needed for plant growth becomes available over several weeks. The sulfur in Nitro-22 will help reduce the pH of soils that are too alkaline. Application

CAUTION:

The following conditions must be observed in order to apply product successfully. Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to the plant. • Use sufficient water to provide thorough coverage. • A jar test is recommended before mixing chemicals in your tank. • The following mixing procedures should be used after TKO Phosphite has been diluted with water. Add products to mix in this order: 1. wettable powders, 2. flowables, 3. water solubles, 4. emulsifiable concentrates. • Agitate during each addition of products. Be sure each product is mixed well before adding the next technical material. • Consult your local representative for rate and application questions.

“TKO” Phosphite 0-29-26 is a clear, highly concentrated P/K solution containing mono and di-potassium salts of phosphorous acid. The Phosphite in TKO is more soluble than phosphate. It is rapidly absorbed into plant tissue through leaves and roots with excellent movement in both xylem and phloem. Translocation in phloem allows TKO to move from leaf tissues to the branches, crowns and roots. Because of this unique property, phosphonates are viewed as excellent initiator to improve the plant’s resistance, by stimulation of natural host defenses against environmental and other stress. Phosphonates are absorbed by plants and incorporated into cells as phosphite ions (H2 PO3). Over time, phosphonate fertilizer can be converted by bacteria to phosphate in soil, where it can be taken up and metabolized by plants. Phosphites have greater solubility and are more readily available to microorganisms and plant roots than phosphates. At appropriate rates, TKO can provide stimulation to plants to make a broad spectrum of biologically active metabolites, which does not occur with phosphates. TKO foliar sprays can induce system protection against stress conditions. TKO Phosphite has proven to be more readily absorbed into citrus and avocado leaves than conventional phosphates. A prebloom foliar application will produce growth-stimulating properties increasing flower number, yield, fruit size and total solids. TKO can be use on all crops, including but not limited to; leafy vegetables, legumes, tubers, and fruit and nut trees. See Crop application recommendations.

80 Lafayette Ave., White Plains, NY 10603

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

TKO is a clear liquid solution with a near neutral pH. It can be tank mixed with conventional fertilizers, most micronutrients, organic supplements and most biological fungicides. Be sure to add sufficient water to ensure adequate spray coverage. Always use a jar test with appropriate concentrations before mixing chemicals in your tank. All recommendations are based on broadcast spray application. When band or directed sprays are used, calculate the rate for the "sprayed acre" only. For most field and horticultural crops the early season applications are directed sprays. For treatment of individual trees and vines, divide rate per acre by number of trees or vines per acre.

TKO foliar sprays can induce system protection against stress conditions. TKO Phosphite has proven to be more readily absorbed into citrus and avocado leaves than conventional phosphates. A prebloom foliar application will produce growth-stimulating properties increasing flower number, yield, fruit size and total solids. TKO can be use on all crops, including but not limited to; leafy vegetables, legumes, tubers, and fruit and nut trees. See Crop application recommendations.

TKO is a clear liquid solution with a near neutral pH. It can be tank mixed with conventional fertilizers, most micronutrients, organic supplements and most biological fungicides. Be sure to add sufficient water to ensure adequate spray coverage. Always use a jar test with appropriate concentrations before mixing chemicals in your tank. All recommendations are based on broadcast spray application. When band or directed sprays are used, calculate the rate for the "sprayed acre" only. For most field and horticultural crops the early season applications are directed sprays. For treatment of individual trees and vines, divide rate per acre by number of trees or vines per acre.

CAUTION:

The following conditions must be observed in order to apply product successfully. Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to the plant. • Use sufficient water to provide thorough coverage.

Recover RX 3-18-18 is a highly soluble, foliar solution for quick & efficient nutrient uptake without foliar damage. Recover RX is designed to be used in concert with soil and tissue tests and professional recommendations, to manage the nutrient levels and balance. All Field Crops or Direct Seeded Crops: Recover RX, placed immediately under the seed, can speed early growth and strengthen young plants. Apply 1 to 3 gallons per acre, banded in the seed bed, not in direct contact with seed. On light textured or sandy soils (CEC 20 or below) use 1 to 2 gallons per acre. Do not apply directly under seed on cotton. Do not apply to soils with inadequate moisture for germination unless seeds will be irrigated. Warning: Application to soils with inadequate moisture may result in germination problems. Early Applications for Seeded Crops: Applications of Recover RX early in the plant’s life can encourage earlier development, increased growth, vigor and resistance. Recover RX may effectively be applied at the first to second true leaf stage as a directed spray to the small plant. When spraying young plants, use ground application equipment and “sprayed acres” to determine amounts of spray to be applied. Crop Treatment Recommendations: All recommendations are based on broadcast spray application. When band or directed sprays are used, calculate the rate for the sprayed acre only. For Application

Our PolyKPhos 3-18-18 is a highly soluble, foliar, low salt index formulation developed to supplement standard soil fertility practice. It provides an additional source of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium nutrients during the growing seasons. 3-18-18 is designed to be used in concert with soil and tissue tests and professional recommendations, to manage the nutrient levels and nutrient balance within the crop. In a form readily absorbed by plant tissue, 3-18-18 corrects deficiencies quickly. All Field Crops or Direct Seeded Crops: PolyKPhos placed immediately under the seed can speed early growth and strengthen young plants. Apply 1 to 3 gallons per acre, banded in the seed bed, not in direct contact with seed. On light textured or sandy soils (CEC 20 or below) use 1 to 2 gallons per acre. Do not apply directly under seed on cotton. Do not apply to soils with inadequate moisture for germination unless seeds will be irrigated. Warning: Application to soils with inadequate moisture may result in germination problems. Early Applications for Seeded Crops: Applications of PolyKPhos early in the plant’s life can encourage earlier development, increased growth and vigor. 3-18-18 may effectively be applied at the first to second true leaf stage, as a directed spray to the small plant. When spraying young plants, use ground application equipment and “sprayed acres” to determine amounts of spray to be applied. Application

Triple 12 + is a concentrated, water-clear solution containing an equal ratio of N, P, and K, as well as slow release nitrogen. This equal ratio is a staple for agricultural, greenhouse and nursery crops. The solution contains 5% Slow Release Nitrogen from our exclusive Nitro-30 Methylene Urea. Methylene Urea is known to be a very consistent and reliable nitrogen source that remains present and available to your plants for a longer period of time. Methylene Urea is not easily broken down, and its nitrogen will only be released by a combination of factors (heat, humidity, and microbial activity). The slow release nitrogen is ‘tackified’ and is less likely to leach or volatilize.

8-32-5 needs no mixing and will not settle out of solution. Like all Growth Products, it is ideal for any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use 8-32-5 on all types of bedding plants, perennials, cut flowers, plugs, ornamentals, nursery crops, trees, foliage and container plants. Direct Siphon: 8-32-5 can be siphoned directly from the original container. This can be done with a variable proportioner that can be set to high ratios. This eliminates the need to mix stock concentrates or stir the mixing barrels. For 100 PPM phosphorus, set injector to 1:4400; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:2200. Parts Per Million: Use the Parts Per Million chart to choose desired phosphorus ratio. Foliar Feeding: When using overhead irrigation, 8-32-5 gives you dual efficiency since the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Hand Watering: Mix ½ to ¾ teaspoon 8-32-5 per gallon of Application

Nursery Applications Rate

Notes

Foliar Spray: 1 - 2 quarts per 100 gal of water (250 - 500 ml Thoroughly spray to per 100 L water) point of run-off. Apply Rate per Gallon: 1¼ Containerized and every 2 - 4 weeks. 2½ oz per gallon or Field Grown Crops, 2½ - 5 tbsp per gallon (including but not of water limited to): Deciduous and Evergreen Trees, Foliage, Ornamental Grasses, Perennials, Tropicals, Woody Injector Ratio: 3 - 6 oz Ornamentals per gallon of stock tank Apply monthly or as water. Set injector at needed to supplement nutritional 1:100 requirements. (23 - 47 ml per liter stock tank water)

8-32-5 is perfect as a high phosphorus plant starter. 8-32-5 is excellent for seedlings, young plants and overseeding. The solution contains 4% Time-Released Nitrogen from our exclusive methylene urea. The Time-Released Nitrogen helps to feed young plants consistently, avoiding flush growth, which can be detrimental and contribute to disease susceptibility. Methylene Urea is known to be a very consistent and reliable nitrogen source that remains present and available to your plants for a longer period of time. Methylene Urea is not easily broken down, and its nitrogen will only be released by a combination of factors (heat, humidity, and microbial activity). The phosphorus and potassium are completely soluble and therefore immediately available for plant uptake. You can use less 8-32-5 than granular high phosphorus products since there is no need to wait for particle breakdown. 832-5 contains no chlorides, therefore making it safer to tender

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

Each gallon of Bluetrition 10-5-5 contains 1.08 lbs of Nitrogen.

Bluetrition needs no mixing and will not settle out of solution. Like all Growth Products formulations, it is ideal for any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use on all types of berry plants Including bush Blueberries and soft berries such as strawberries. Foliar Feeding / Drip Irrigation: When using overhead irrigation, Bluetrition gives you dual efficiency since the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Hand Watering: Mix ½ to ¾ teaspoon of per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix.

STORAGE & HANDLING :

All Growth Products horticultural fertilizers can be stored in normal warehouse areas. Bluetrition has a slight alkaline pH and is not corrosive. Always store in original container and keep sealed. Mixing: Bluetrition is compatible with other technical chemicals including fungicides and insecticides and can be mixed and sprayed in one application. The following precautionary statements and pictograms are based on The Globally harmonized System of Classifications and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and are mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Bluetrition 10-5-5 is a concentrated liq-

uid NPK solution that also contains essential micronutrients for berry production, along with organic enhancers from humic acid, fulvic acid and kelp that speed up absorption into leaves and roots. The solution contains our exclusive Slow Released Nitrogen from Methylene Urea. Methylene Nitrogen is a safe, low salt nitrogen that has sticker/ spreader properties. It has been University tested and found to be a very reliable nitrogen source that provides a consistent release of N for a longer period of time. It does not leach or volatilize, even in sandy soils. Its nitrogen will only be released by a combination of factors (heat, humidity, and microbial activity) producing a more consistent nitrogen feeding curve. Timing between fertilization can be extended. Both the phosphorous and potassium are immediately available for foliar and root uptake, correcting deficiencies quickly. Bluetrition is ideal to use when plants are maturing and blooming.

0-0-25 LIQUID POTASSIUM THE PUREST FORM OF POTASSIUM • Excellent for Raising pH • Low Phytotoxicity • Raises pH to Correct Iron Toxicity on Geranium

• Quickly Corrects K Deficiency • Easily Absorbed Through Leaf Tissue • No Chlorides, No Salts

GUARANTEED ANALYSIS : Soluble Potash (K2O) ............................................... 25% Derived From: Potassium Carbonate Weight per gallon ............................................ 11.2 lbs. Weight per liter ................................................. 1.34 kg. pH .......................................................................... 12 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

centrates or stir the mixing barrels. For 100 PPM potassium, set injector to 1:3300; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:1650. Parts Per Million: Use the Parts Per Million chart to choose desired potassium ratio. Foliar Feeding: When using overhead irrigation, 0-0-25 gives you dual efficiency since the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Foliar feeding should not be used when plants are in bloom. Hand Watering: Mix ½ to ¾ teaspoon 0-0-25 per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix.

0-0-25 is a crystal clear, concentrate solution containing a very safe and reliable source of potassium from potassium carbonate. Each gallon of 0-0-25 contains 2.9 lbs. of potassium. It does not contain any chlorides and has the lowest salt index of any potassium source. Potassium deficiencies can be quickly corrected for both greenhouse and nursery crops. It is extremely efficient as a foliar feed to correct potassium deficiencies. Because of 0-0-25's low salt index, the volume of irrigation water can be reduced during the application to avoid over saturation of soil. For newly planted plants, 0-0-25 can be applied as soon as the seeds have emerged. 0-0-25 will raise both water and soil pH. It is important to check the pH of any mix prior to use. Each soil mix will have a different buffering capacity (resistance to a change in pH levels). For example, bark is more resistant than other soilless mixes. Be sure to check the pH of your mix after each application. 0-0-25 can be mixed with other lime or flowable lime products to make their slurry more flowable and increase the performance of those products. It can be applied through overhead irrigation as a foliar spray, or drenched into the roots. 0-0-25 crystal clear solution does not settle out as a concentrate or when diluted for use, and therefore provides the precise analysis of nutrients throughout its entire use. A major advantage of 0-0-25 is that it can be directly siphoned from the original container with a high ratio proportioner. 0-0-25 is alkaline, with a pH of 12. As a result, it will raise the pH of your stock tank and your soils.

MIXING :

0-0-25 can NOT be mixed with calcium or magnesium materials. Be sure to check all other technical materials prior to mixing with pH Booster. 0-0-25 is alkaline and has a pH of 11. Do a jar test before use with other technical materials. 0-0-25 will raise the pH of your stock tank and your soils.

tend nutrient availability at the end of feeding cycle to avoid costly hand topdressing. Apply at the end of growing cycle, prior to shipment, as a final feed to avoid labor, waste and spillage. For Constant Feed: Use on all nursery stock, potted and containerized plants as both foliar or root feeding.

TREE CARE RECOMMENDATIONS :

Root Application Rates: For determining tree fertilization rates, measure the trunk diameter of the tree (DBH) 4½ feet above ground. Growth Products liquid fertilizers should be injected into the top 4 to 8 inches of soil where feeder roots extend. Start application of fertilizer approximately 2 - 3 feet from tree trunk and extend the same distance from the drip line. A grid pattern should be laid out, and spacing should be every 2½ ft. A minimum of 5 gallons of tank mix should be applied per inch of tree diameter. Inject approximately ½ gal. of fertilizer solution at each point. Foliar Feeding: Apply this product through overhead, microjet or center pivot sprinkler irrigation. Nursery Star gives you dual efficiency since the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. See PPM chart for rates. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications, use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. For Hand spray use 1¼ oz to 2½ oz per gallon of water. Spray to full coverage. Trees & Ornamentals: Growth Products liquid fertilizers contain Methylene Polymer Nitrogen, which has an extremely low salt index and resists leaching. 18-6-12 is a true solution and is ideal for root injection and for use through IPM units. Inject no lower than 8" below ground with correctly calibrated fertilizer injector equipment. See Injection Application Rate Chart.

18-6-12 Nursery Star with 60% Time-Released Nitrogen is a professional liquid fertilizer solution made from only the highest quality N-P-K raw materials to ensure a safe, reliable and efficient product. 18-6-12 provides a balance of Quick Release Nitrogen for initial green up and 60% Time-Released Nitrogen for continuous steady feeding. 18-6-12 contains Methylene Polymer Nitrogen from Nitro-30 (MDU), which resists leaching and provides a release over 8 - 12 weeks. The phosphorus and potassium are readily available for both foliar and root uptake. The K is a nonchloride source. 18-6-12 provides fast green up without producing flush growth. Since all Growth Products are TRUE CLEAR SOLUTIONS, they are ideal for spray and nursery applications, foliar feeding of trees, container crops and woody ornamentals. Growth Products solutions are non-clogging and non-abrasive to equipment. No special agitation is needed. 18-6-12 does not contain any nitrates, and avoids nitrate leaching. It is compatible with fungicides, herbicides and insecticides and can be mixed and sprayed in one application.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

14-7-14 needs no mixing and will not settle out of solution. Like all Growth Products formulations, it is ideal for any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use 14-7-14 on all types of bedding plants, perennials, cut flowers, plugs, ornamentals, nursery crops, trees, foliage and container plants. Direct Siphon: 14-7-14 can be siphoned directly from the original container. This can be done with a variable proportioner that can be set to high ratios. This eliminates the need to mix stock concentrates or stir mixing barrels. For 100 PPM nitrogen, set injector to 1:1900; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:950. Parts Per Million: Use the Parts Per Million chart to choose desired nitrogen ratio. Foliar Feeding: When using overhead irrigation, 14-7-14 gives you dual efficiency since the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Hand Watering: Mix ½ to ¾ teaspoon of 14-7-14 per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix. Capillary Mat Systems: Because 14-7-14 has an extremely low salt content it can be used in capillary mat systems and will eliminate the build up of salts in the mat system.

STORAGE & HANDLING :

Storage: All Growth Products horticultural fertilizers can be stored in normal warehouse areas. 14-7-14 has an alkaline pH and is not corrosive. Always store in original container and keep sealed. Mixing: 14-7-14 is compatible with other technical chemicals including fungicides and insecticides and can be mixed and sprayed in one application. Do not mix products with high calcium content together with 14-7-14.

14-7-14 is a concentrated, crystal-clear, liquid solution in the 2-1-2 ratio that the horticultural industry favors, plus important micronutrients. The solution contains 7% Slow Released Nitrogen from our exclusive Methylene Urea. Methylene Nitrogen is the smart approach to nitrogen application. It has been University tested and found to be a very consistent and reliable nitrogen source that remains present and available to your plants for a longer period of time. It does not leach or volatilize and is not easily broken down. Its nitrogen will only be released by a combination of factors (heat, humidity, and microbial activity). This product’s control release nitrogen produces a more consistent nitrogen feeding curve. Timing between fertilization can be extended. The slow release nitrogen is a tackifier and will not leach or volatilize. The potassium is completely soluble and therefore immediately available for plant uptake. It is ideal to use when plants are maturing and blooming.

Enhances Cation Exchange Capacity in Soil A Food Source for Beneficial Soil Microbes Helps Root Development & Seed Germination Contains a Natural Wetting Agent

Essential Plus provides a safe alternative to chemical hormones. It is ideal for use at plug production to ensure seed germination and good rooting. When used at the time of plug transplant to the field, Essential Plus will help eliminate transplant shock and provide better establishment. The ingredients will add organic matter to depleted soils reducing the effects of compaction, improving water penetration and nutrient holding capacity. Essential Plus provides an important food source for beneficial soil microbes. The high carbon content creates an environment suitable for beneficial microorganism growth. Essential Plus corrects soil alkalinity and is ideal to reduce and neutralize salts in high salt soils. The active humic acid in Essential Plus retains nutrient ions from leaching through soils and holds them in a form readily available for plant uptake. Essential Plus is rich in organic materials that have a high absorption and exchange capacity for nutrient cations. Humic acid will help mobilize phosphates that have been tied up in soils. Essential Plus is 100% Organic and is classified safe for the applicator and the environment.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

Essential Plus needs no mixing and will not settle out of solution. It can be applied through any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use Essential Plus on all types of softwood cuttings, hardwood cuttings, vegetable plugs, bedding plants, perennials, small and large transplants and for seed germination. Essential Plus is an easy, labor saving alternative to IBA dip. Simply use as a drench when planting cuttings. (Rates below) Foliar Feeding: Apply this product through overhead, microjet, center pivot sprinkler irrigation.

Frost Protection

OsmoTech is a new technology to protect and improve the plant’s ability to survive under environmental stress. Derived from the naturally derived plant extract, this unique osmoprotectant stabilizes proteins and cell membranes reducing damage form drought, salinity, cold / frost and heat. OsmoTech accomplishes this by adjusting the osmotic balance inside the plant cells and tissue and reducing the negative effect of these stress factors. Can be added to the tank mix of any fertilizer or micronutrient product to improve the plant’s osmotic properties and promote the quick penetration if nutrients into the leaf surface, absorption and utilization by the plant. By adding OsmoTech to each mix, even difficult elements such as calcium become more effective and available. OsmoTech translocates macro and micronutrients throughout the plant system, even into important but often harder to reach areas such as developing fruits and vegetables. Proven in independent testing to increase the uptake of nitrogen, calcium and other micros it can be applied by either drenches (through the root system) or foliar sprays (leaf system). This unique osmoprotectant stabilizes proteins and cell membranes reducing damage form drought, salinity, cold / frost and heat. OsmoTech accomplishes this by adjusting the osmotic balance inside the plant cells and tissue and reducing the negative effect of these stress factors.

Nutrient Activator

this by adjusting the osmotic balance inside the plant cells and tissue and thus reducing the negative effect of these stress factors. Under drought induced stress conditions, OsmoTech was tested (in a University study) and shown to increase photosynthetic capacity, protein, and chlorophyll content. Stress caused by saline conditions reduces a plants chlorophyll production. Bolstering the production of chlorophyll is very important to drought tolerance and overall plant health. Use OsmoTech to improve the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tolerance against freezing temperatures, frost and other environmental stresses. It will help regrowth rates after cold temperatures and boost yield in environmental stress conditions. Tested under heat, drought, salinity, and freezing temperatures.

MIXING :

Always use a jar test with appropriate concentrations before mixing chemicals in your tank. The following mixing procedure should be followed after OsmoTech has been diluted with appropriate amounts of water. Add products to mix in this order: 1. wettable powders, 2. flowables, 3. water solubles, 4. surfactants, 5. emulsifiable concentrates. Be sure to agitate during each addition. Be sure each product is mixed well before adding the next. Apply all of mixture in same day. Always use a jar test before mixing OsmoTech with pesticides and fertilizers in your tank.

PH

REDUCER

CITRIC ACID SOLUTION - APPROVED BY WSDA • Lower pH the Natural Way • Safe Alternative to Corrosive Acids • Chelates Insoluble Soil Micronutrients

• Wetting Agent Penetrates Soil • Acidify Water with Alkaline pH • Adjust Soilless Media pH

CONTAINS NON-PLANT FOOD INGREDIENTS 50% ........................................................Citric Acid 0.0025% ......Natural Wetting Agent (Yucca schidigera) Derived From: Citric Acid, Yucca schidigera

Weight per gallon (liter) ........................... 9.5 lbs. (1.14 kg.) pH ............................................................................. 1.5

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Hand Watering: Mix ½ - ¾ teaspoon pH Reducer per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix.

This organic pH Reducer is a safe alternative to phosphoric and sulfuric acids. Use pH Reducer to lower the pH of soilless media and water, or as a buffer in the mixing tank. It has the extra benefit of chelating micronutrients that may be unavailable in the soil. pH Reducer contains a natural wetting agent to help the citric acid penetrate the soil quickly.

MIXING :

pH Reducer is compatible with other technical chemicals, including fungicides and insecticides, however, read all chemical labels to be sure an acid pH will not effect the performance of the chemical.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

Fluid Ounces of Acid per 1,000 Gallons of Water to Neutralize CaCO3

pH Reducer needs no mixing or agitation and will not settle out of solution. When using a variable proportioner, it can be siphoned directly out of its original container. Growth Products solutions are ideal for any type of fertigation systems. Use pH Reducer with all types of: Bedding Plants, Perennials, Cut Flowers, Plugs, Woody Ornamentals, Nursery Crops, Trees, Foliage Plants and Container Plants.

BUFFERING CAPACITY:

The buffering capacity is different for every water supply and soil. The buffering capacity is the ability to resist change in pH. Bringing about a pH change in a weakly buffered media/water will require less pH Reducer than in a highly buffered media/water. Remember that it is better to begin by adding too less pH Reducer than to add too much.

ACIDIFYING ALKALINE IRRIGATION WATER:

As a starting point, add 2 fl oz of pH Reducer to 100 gallons of tank mix before any other chemicals have been added. Measure the pH of the water to determine its shift. Add another 2 fl oz of pH reducer until an acceptable pH is reached. Some water sources may require several additions of pH Reducer.

ADJUSTING MEDIA PH:

Begin by mixing 4 fl oz pH Reducer with one gallon water (100 PPM rate) and moisten a sample of growing media. Let stand 24 hours and take pH reading. Adjust rate of pH Reducer accordingly. Do not exceed 6 fl oz pH Reducer (150 PPM) per gallon per irrigation. Instead adust media pH, with 2-4 oz pH reducer over several waterings.

Sil-Guard is a liquid supplement that contains soluble potassium and soluble silicate, two important elements to help strengthen plant cell walls. Silica hardens the leaf and helps strengthen the xylem vessels (stem) of plants. This is especially important during times of high transpiration which will reduce water loss and environmental stress in both plants and cuttings. Potassium silicate will significantly reduce the effects of salt stress on roots, stems and leaves of plants. Sil-Guard also contains Potassium Phosphite which promotes plant health and increases the plant’s resistance. Potassium builds carbohydrate reserves. Nutrient uptake is increased through the leaf and root tissue with the addition of humic acid. It can be applied as a foliar application on all plant varieties. A continuous source of soluble silicate is very important to enhance the plants’ resistance to sucking insects and promotes the natural defense to fungal diseases.

sponses, increasing root cell division and elongation. Fulvic will also increase enzyme activity. As with Humic Acid, Fulvic acts as a chelating agent and thereby increases the efficiency of the plant to uptake nutrients that are most often unavailable. What is unique about Fulv-Ex is the ratio of two parts pure Humic acid to one part pure Fulvic Acid. The highly soluble Fulvic provides the quick and immediate action of stimulating new root growth and triggers the plant’s immune system to function more efficiently. Organic matter in soils plays an essential role in soil quality and ultimately crop yield. Humates are known to physically alter the soil to allow better water and air movement. They also chemically change the soil’s environment. Soil aggregate stability is a strong indicator of the recovery of degraded soil quality. They encourage soil microbial activity and improve the cation exchange capacity of soils. It is a known fact that herbicide laden soils containing glyphosates, copper, or high bi-carbonates, can be detoxified by the application of organic rich materials such as Fulv-Ex. It contains our exclusive methylene urea from Nitro-30 which enhances uptake and acts as a sticker / spreader.

Growth Products new soil remediation, Fulv-Ex (13-0-5), contains both Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid. Fulvic Acid is obtained by a highly refined extraction process from Humic Acid, resulting in a lighter (smaller) molecule which is a chemically distinct compound. Fulvic Acid has greater mobility (gets to where it is needed faster) and is a powerful organic electrolyte. It has a higher solubility which translates into faster absorption into plant tissue (foliar and root). For Damaged Roots! Organic substances in the soil can have dramatic physiological effects on enhancing plant growth. Compounds with growth-promoting properties, such as humic substances, are often referred to as having auxin-like growth reCrop Growth Stage Rate Per Acre

KnockOut is a new and unique combination product that contains readily available calcium and a natural surfactant / wetting agent from yucca. It is an effective tool to reduce sodium levels in soils or bicarbonate accumulation from irrigation water. KnockOut quickly penetrates even the most difficult soils. It will also increase the permeability of soils, while reducing soluble salts that build up in soils from high water salinity. It can be used on soilless media where excessive salt build up often occurs from continued use of pesticides and high salt fertilizers. Soil salinity is one of the most serious turf problems especially, in high pH soils. KnockOut’s calcium is in a 100% soluble form that is immediately available to react with the sodium, unlike gypsum based products. Calcium cation ranges between 65 - 70% (Cation Exchange Capacity - CEC). CEC measures the soil’s ability to hold nutrients such as potassium (K), magnesium (Mg), and calcium (Ca) as well as other positively charged ions such as sodium (Na) and hydrogen(H). It is a much safer alternative to chlorides and sulfates. KnockOut will improve soil structure, enhance better rooting, water infiltration and improve overall turf quality.

SiTKO is a unique formulation containing three important nutrients that are essential to enabling the plant to develop and maintain a strong immune system. By doing so, the plant is able to overcome environmental stress such as physical damage, heat and drought and better resilience to pests and diseases. SiTKO contains potassium silicate, a beneficial substance that has been found to alleviate many abiotic and biotic stresses. Not all silicon in soil is soluble and available to crops. The American Plant Food Control Officials designated silicon as a “plant beneficial substance.” Si plays an important role in plant health. Si reinforces cell walls by deposition of solid silica. It is translocated from the roots as silicic acid [Si(OH)4 ] through the xylem until it deposits under the cuticle and in intercellular spaces. Many crops respond positively to additions of supplemental Si. Grasses can take up large amounts of Si where it contributes to their mechanical strength. Si helps to protect plants from environmental stress. For some crops, Si fertilization of soils increases crop yield. A second mechanism for the beneficial effects of Si is its role in triggering a range of natural defenses.

SiTKO can be used as a foliar application or through drip and broadcast systems. Recommendations are based on broadcast spray application. When band or directed sprays are used, calculate the rate for the "sprayed acre" only. For most field and horticultural crops the early season applications are directed sprays. For treatment of individual trees and vines, divide rate per acre by number of trees or vines per acre.

GENERAL INFORMATION AGRICULTURAL CROPS

• Use on Food and Forage Crops • For Prevention, Control and suppression of Root and Foliar Diseases • Activates the Plant’s Defense /Immune System (Induced Systemic Resistance [ISR]) • A Rhizosphere Bacterium • Quickly Establishes Beneficial Colonies on Roots and Leaves • Improves Nutrient Uptake • Stimulates Healthier Roots and Accelerates Plant Growth Product Description: Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide is a broad-spectrum biological fungicide for the prevention, control and suppression of soil borne and foliar diseases on all agricultural crops. Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide contains the active ingredient Bacillus subtilis GB03 which is a rhizosphere bacterium that quickly establishes beneficial colonies on the plant’s roots and leaves. It stimulates healthier roots, accelerates plant growth and activates the defense system of the plant. Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide is non-selective. Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide is most effective when applied prior to the onset of disease. Use Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide in combination and/or rotation with chemical fungicides to enhance disease control. For use on all outdoor field grown food crops including vegetables, herbs, small fruits, berries and fruit and nut trees. Use in greenhouse plug production and hydroponics operations. Modes of Action: Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide has multiple modes of action in preventing, controlling and suppressing plant diseases. It produces a broadspectrum antibiotic (Iturin) that disrupts pathogen cell-wall formation. It is a competitive and fast colonizing rhizosphere bacterium, which occupies the plant’s root hairs and leaves preventing the growth and antagonistic effects of soil borne and foliar pathogens. GB03 is known to stimulate phytohormones, which trigger the plant’s systemic resistance to disease (Induced Systemic Resistance), the defense mechanisms of the plant for prolonged periods of time. It is non-selective to plant materials.

Modes of Action: Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide has multiple modes of action in preventing, controlling and suppressing plant diseases. It produces a broad-spectrum antibiotic (Iturin) that disrupts pathogen cell-wall formation. It is a competitive and fast colonizing rhizosphere bacterium, which occupies the plant’s root hairs or leaf surfaces preventing the growth and antagonistic effects of soil borne and foliar pathogens. The active ingredient is known to stimulate phytohormones, which trigger the plant’s systemic resistance to disease Induced Systemic Resistance (ISR), the defense mechanisms of the plant for prolonged periods of time. It is non-selective to plant materials. PGPR (Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria): Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide is classified as a Plant GrowthPromoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). PGPR are free-living bacteria that have beneficial effects on plants as they enhance seed emergence, rooting, and stimulate growth.

INTEGRATED PEST (DISEASE) MANAGEMENT (IPM)

Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide is an important tool in sound disease management whenever fungicide use is necessary. Apply Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide alone or in combination and / or rotation with chemical fungicides. This will result in reduced susceptibility to disease and overall reduction in the use of chemical fungicides. Consult local agricultural authorities for specific IPM strategies developed for your crop (s) and location.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT

Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide is an important tool to prevent the development of resistant pathogens that often occur with chemical fungicide products. Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide’s multiple and unique modes of action inhibit the pathogen’s ability to develop resistance. Use Companion® Liquid Biological Fungicide in combination with lower rates of chemical fungicide for improved efficacy and/or in rotation with chemical fungicides to reduce chemical applications. ®

CHEMIGATION

to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. 4) The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops. 5) The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. 6) Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock. 7) Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

General Requirements 1) Apply this product only through a drip system or sprinkler including center pivot, lateral move, end tow, side (wheel) roll, traveler, big gun, solid set, hand move, flood (basin), furrow, border or drip (trickle) irrigation systems. Do not apply this product through any other type of irrigation system. 2) Crop injury, lack of effectiveness, or illegal pesticide residues in the crop can result from non-uniform distribution of treated water. 3) If you have questions about calibration, you should contact State Extension Service specialists, equipment manufacturers or other experts. 4) Do not connect an irrigation system (including greenhouse systems) used for pesticide application to a public water system unless the pesticide label-prescribed safety devices for public water systems are in place. 5) A person knowledgeable of the chemigation system and responsible for its operation, or under the supervision of the responsible person, shall shut the system down and make necessary adjustments should the need arise.

Specific Requirements for Flood (Basin), Furrow and Border Chemigation -

1) Systems using a gravity flow pesticide dispensing system must meter the pesticide into the water at the head of the field and downstream of a hydraulic discontinuity such as a drop structure or weir box to decrease potential for water source contamination from backflow if water flow stops. 2) The systems utilizing a pressurized water and pesticide injection system must meet the following requirements: a. The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve and low-pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow. b. The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. c.The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. d. The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops. e. The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional pressure switch which will stop the water pump motor when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. f. Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock.

Specific Requirements for Chemigation Systems Connected to Public Water Systems -

1) Public water system means a system for the provision to the public of piped water for human consumption if such system has at least 15 service connections or regularly serves an average of at least 25 individuals daily at least 60 days out of the year. 2) Chemigation systems connected to public water systems must contain a functional, reduced-pressure zone, backflow preventer (RPZ) or the functional equivalent in the water supply line upstream from the point of pesticide introduction. As an option to the RPZ, the water from the public water system should be discharged into a reservoir tank prior to pesticide introduction. There shall be a complete physical break (air gap) between the outlet end of the fill pipe and the top or overflow rim of the reservoir tank of at least twice the inside diameter of the fill pipe. 3) The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. 4) The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. 5) The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops, or in cases where there is no water pump, when the water pressure decreases to the point where pesticide distribution is adversely affected. 6) Systems must use a metering pump, such as a positive displacement injection pump (e.g., diaphragm pump) effectively designed and constructed of materials that are compatible with pesticides and capable of being fitted with a system interlock. 7) Do not apply when wind speed favors drift beyond the area intended for treatment.

Specific Requirements for Drip (Trickle) Chemigation -

1) The system must contain a functional check valve, vacuum relief valve and low-pressure drain appropriately located on the irrigation pipeline to prevent water source contamination from backflow. 2) The pesticide injection pipeline must contain a functional, automatic, quick-closing check valve to prevent the flow of fluid back toward the injection pump. 3) The pesticide injection pipeline must also contain a functional, normally closed, solenoid-operated valve located on the intake side of the injection pump and connected to the system interlock to prevent fluid from being withdrawn from the supply tank when the irrigation system is either automatically or manually shut down. 4) The system must contain functional interlocking controls to automatically shut off the pesticide injection pump when the water pump motor stops. 5) The irrigation line or water pump must include a functional

MicroTech CT is a special formulation of essential micronutrients, nitrogen and organic enhancers that can be used on citrus crops, peaches, pecans, cotton, small fruit, and vegetable crops. It contains Seaweed extract (Kelp), Yucca and Humic Acid that are known to enhance plant hardiness, resistance to environmental conditions and increase nutrient uptake. Each of these three organics play important roles in plant physiology, which improves phytosynthesis and chlorophyll production. Kelp also contains cytokinins, natural plant hormones that increase bloom and fruit set. Citrus and tomatoes sprayed with Kelp (Seaweed extract) are known to have reduced damage from early frost, and are able to withstand extreme heat and lack of moisture. Humic acid accelerates the absorption and uptake of nutrients while providing biostimulant effects. Yucca is both a natural wetting agent and acts as a natural steroid that stimulates plant growth and increases cell wall permeability for better absorption. MicroTech CT contains 4% nitrogen so it does not need to be mixed with other nitrogen products.

Foliar Crop Application Recommendations

Crop

Growth Products Zinc Chelate 8% is a 100% chelated zinc that maintains the zinc in a soluble form for immediate uptake by plants, trees or crops either through foliar spray or root application. Zinc Chelate will correct deficiencies on many row crops, vegetables, and ornamental plants, growing in soils with very low organic matter, and in soils of varying pH ranges. Crops with high zinc requirements include corn, onions and spinach. Those with medium zinc requirements are barley, beans, beet, canola, cucumber, lettuce, lupine, potato, radish soybean, tobacco and tomato.

Legumes, Leafy Vegetables, Tomatoes, Peppers, Celery, Herbs and Spices

Severe stunting with chlorosis and striping in grasses. Rosette, white bud, or other terminal maladies. Small narrow chlorotic leaves with veins usually green with shortened internodes on all plants. Zinc deficiencies are widespread in citrus (causing rosette or frenching) and mangos. Mango trees grown in calcareous soils should receive annual nutritional sprays of zinc.

Melons, Cucumbers, Squash and other Cucurbit Crops

Citrus Crop Avocados Bananas

Pome & Stone Fruit, Papaya Nut Trees, Soft Fruit, Berries, Grapes

SOIL APPLICATIONS :

Zinc Chelate is recommended for use on all types of soils. Because this is a concentrated solution, it should be diluted with water before using to ensure uniform coverage. Soil applications can be made by drip, sprinkler or furrow irrigation systems or in band or broadcast. For trees or individual plants, the Zinc chelate may be diluted (as above) and sprinkled directly on the soil under the plant’s drip line and watered in.

Weight per liter.................................................. 1.35 kg Each gallon contains............................ 1.02 lbs Calcium Each liter contains ................................ 0.12 kg Calcium Freezing temperature ............................................. 32°F pH ......................................................................... 6.5 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Cal-Tec 9% is a fully chelated micronutrient for the correction of calcium deficiency in field crops, fruit trees and greenhouse crops. This convenient, clear liquid is recommended for foliar spray or soil applications and provides calcium in a soluble, readily available form for plant uptake. Calcium can correct minor deficiencies or can be used in a regular growing program where crops and soils are known to be deficient. It is important to treat calcium deficiency before the symptoms become visual to ensure proper crop yield. Rates of Calcium will vary depending upon the severity of the deficiency, climate, soil conditions and method of application. Soil analysis can determine pH and available calcium. It’s compatible and can be used with most fertilizers and technical materials. Calcium promotes early root formation and growth, improves plant vigor and fruit integrity, and helps control cork spot and bitter pit on apples and pears. Calcium influences the uptake of other nutrients and encourages grain and seed production. Use in hot weather to reduce heat stress. APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

nursery crops, trees, foliage, ornamental grasses, and container plants. Direct Siphon: Cal-Tec can be siphoned directly from the original container. This can be done with a variable proportioner that can be set to high ratios. This eliminates the need to mix stock concentrates or stir the mixing barrels. For 100 PPM calcium, set injector to 1:1000; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:500. Soil & Tissue Testing: Have horticulturists identify micronutrient deficiencies. Whenever possible, run these tests prior to micronutrient applications in order to prescribe the deficient micro. Foliar Feeding: When using overhead irrigation, Cal-Tec gives you dual efficiency as the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaf and roots of the plant. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Hand Watering: Mix ½ to ¾ teaspoon Cal-Tec per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix.

CROP TREATMENT RECOMMENDATION:

Foliar Application: Dilute with water according to label recommendations to apply as a foliar spray. Always spray on leaf until run-off. See chart for crop rates. For conventional sprayers, use a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre (200 L of water per Ha). For best results spray in early morning or late afternoon. Do not spray in the heat of day. For best results, spray when the crop is in an active growth state, after irrigation or natural rainfall. Deficiency Symptoms: Terminal bud growth will be hooked or distorted. Leaves have a wrinkled appearance. Application

When determining the application rates of Cal-Tec 9%, it is important to check both tissue and soil sample analysis for calcium levels. Since calcium is the second highest percentage in plant tissue, it is important to correct any deficiencies early in the spring and continue to apply throughout the growing season. Hot weather will also aggravate calcium deficiencies. Calcium deficiencies become evident at terminal bud growth, with hooked malformation and finally dying back. Like all Growth Products, it is ideal for any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use Cal-Tec on all types of bedding plants, perennials, cut flowers, plugs, ornamentals,

Palms

Manganese Chelate 5% is an organic chelate, which keeps the manganese in soluble form for plant uptake. This chelate is ideal for both soil and foliar uptake, since this chelate is absorbed through foliar spray. Manganese Chelate 5% is made from organic sugars that are easily absorbed, intact, along with the chelated metal. The pH of Manganese Chelate 5% is 6.5, making it ideal for mixing with pH acid sensitive products. It is not affected by soil conditions, other nutrients or technical grade materials. It will remain in a soluble form for plant uptake since it remains as a negatively charged ion and is not attracted to negatively charged soil particles. Manganese Chelate 5% is compatible with all Growth Products professional fertilizers and can be combined in all tank mix solutions for spoon feeding. Be sure to read mixing instructions and do a jar test before use. University studies indicate that Glucoheptonates are ideal for foliar applications and are more efficient than EDTA chelates in high pH soils.

Landscape Plantings

1- 2 quarts in 100 gallons of water (250-500 ml in 100 L Foliar Spray: water) For smaller applications mix 2 - 4 tsp in 1 gal of water Soil Drench:

2 - 3 ounces per gallon of water. Thoroughly drench soil around area (16-23 ml per liter water)

Soil & Tissue Testing: Have horticulturists accurately identify micronutrient deficiencies. Whenever possible, run these tests prior to micronutrients applications in order to prescribe the deficient micros. Parts Per Million: Use the Parts Per Million chart to choose desired manganese ratio. Foliar Feeding: When using overhead irrigation, Manganese Chelate 5% gives you dual efficiency because the nutrients will be absorbed by both the leaves and roots. For tender plants and greenhouse foliar spray applications, use one-half the rate (PPM) you would normally use for drip irrigation feeding. Hand Watering: Mix 1 to 1 ¼ teaspoons Manganese Chelate 5% per gallon of water. Saturate soil with mix. Mixing: Manganese Chelate 5% is not compatible with phosphate fertilizers, and must be mixed and applied separately.

MANGANESE DEFICIENCIES :

Manganese plays an important role in enzyme formation in plant cells, and carbon dioxide assimilation. Manganese deficiencies will often occur in water bogged soils and low temperatures. Inadequate amounts of manganese in soil will result in interveinal chlorosis, first in older leaves. Continued deficiency will also affect younger leaves, followed by formation of lesions. Like all Growth Products, it’s ideal for any type of fertigation system, drip irrigation or spray equipment. Use Manganese Chelate 5% on all types of bedding plants, perennials, cut flowers, plugs, ornamentals, nursery crops, trees, foliage and container plants. Direct Siphon: Manganese Chelate 5% can be siphoned directly from the original container. This can be done with a variable proportioner that can be set to high ratios and eliminates the need to mix stock concentrates or stir the mixing barrels. For 100 PPM manganese, set injector to 1:350; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:175.

Magnesium Chelate 3% is an organic chelate that provides magnesium in a soluble form, making it readily available for both soil and foliar applications. Magnesium Chelate 3% is environmentally sound, and is made from organic sugars that are easily absorbed, intact, along with the chelated metal and utilized in the plant cell. This type of chelate is especially efficient in high pH soils, or calcareous soils and is recommended over EDTA chelates. Magnesium Chelate 3% has a near neutral pH of 6.5 and is ideal for mixing with pH acid sensitive products. It is not affected by soil conditions, other nutrients or technical grade materials. Magnesium Chelate 3% will remain in a soluble form for plant uptake since it remains a doubly ++ charged ion and is not attracted to negatively charged soil particles. Magnesium Chelate 3% is compatible with all Growth Products professional fertilizers. Be sure to read all mix instructions prior to tank mix solutions.

Magnesium is a very important secondary nutrient. It is part of the chlorophyll molecule, and is necessary for sugar formation. Inadequate amounts of magnesium will first appear as a general loss of green color, at the bottoms of older leaves (interveinal chlorosis). Continued deficiency will also affect younger leaves, followed by formation of lesions. Magnesium deficiencies occur mostly in sandy soils and in extremely high pH soils. High levels of calcium and potassium will also reduce magnesium uptake. Direct Siphon: Magnesium Chelate 3% can be siphoned directly from the original container. This can be done with a variable proportioner that can be set to high ratios and eliminates the need to mix stock concentrates or stir the mixing barrels. For 100 PPM magnesium, set injector to 1:350; for 200 PPM, set injector to 1:175. Soil & Tissue Testing: Have horticulturists accurately identify micronutrient deficiencies. Whenever possible, run these tests prior to micronutrients applications in order to prescribe the deficient micros.

CITRUS PROGRAM

LOW VOLUME FOLIAR PROGRAM FORMULATED FOR GREENING G.P Solution’s Low Volume Foliar Program has gained widespread acceptance within the citrus industry as the Greening (HLB) Disease has spread throughout the United States. In Greening, the bacteria produced by the HLB disease prevents food and nutrients from being transported up and down the phloem, and infected trees starve and eventually die. With Growth Products foliar program, trees receive essential macro- and micro-nutrients through the leaves, and the trees can be sustained this way. Foliar application has always been the best practice for citrus nutrition, but with Greening Disease it’s absolutely critical. Growth Products are pH neutral and have extremely low salt indices. This allows the nutrients to be tank-mixed with insecticides that target the HLB disease-causing vector – the Asian citrus psyllid. Use with a low volume sprayer throughout entire grove every to 6 to 8 weeks with the insecticides, December through September. DORMANT BUD INDUCTION SPRAY Rate Per Acre

Comments

This program is designed to maximize root growth by stimulating rooting with gibberellic acid, proteins, amino acids and slow release nitrogen. It will also help prevent foot-rot and pythium infections with the addition of the biological fungicide and phosphite source. The organics in this program will promote and increase CEC in the soil for more efficient nutrient uptake.

1-2 gallons

During transplanting, tree roots are typically damaged when removed from their liners. Here, a Valencia orange on Swingle root stock was treated with Companion® /Essential® Plus drenching solution in order to prevent shock/stress and pythium root rot or foot rot.

121

Fifteen months later, the citrus tree has grown nicely. Follow-up applications of our young tree program have helped protect trees from HLB, Canker, Foot Rot and helped promote extensive and healthy root systems.
