The importance of composting has grown in public consciousness in recent years. Many states and municipalities mandate organic recycling because landfills are filling up. Composting provides a way of reducing waste, producing a rich form of soil full of organic matter that is beneficial and useful for gardening, landscaping, lawn care and agriculture.

See our Composting Program on Page 110

The most difficult plant nutrient to regulate is NITROGEN. For three decades, Growth Products has developed a series of Slow Release Nitrogen products based on polymer technology with a long carbon chain molecule. With the lowest salt index of ANY nitrogen source, you can be assured of safe applications for all plant materials at affordable prices.

Salt Reduction

Buildup of salinity in soils not only retards turf and plant growth, but has a devastating effects on urban trees. Irrigation water from effluent sources constantly adds bicarbonates and salt – one acre of irrigated land can receive as much as 25-tons of salt in one season from poor water quality. Vulnerable coastal areas are subject to salt spray and storm flooding, adding exponentially to the saline soil environment.

Making An Excellent Product Even Better

Essential now contains more ingredients then ever! With newly added brown sea kelp called Ecklonia Maxima, Essential will stimulate both cell division and elongation.

Persistence is a must in controlling salt buildup. Sodium KnockOut, is an effective tool in combating salt problems.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Nitro-30 Slow Release Nitrogen (30-0-0) Liquid Fertilizer is a safe, reliable, slow release nitrogen solution ideal for turf and horticultural applications. Nitro-30 SRN (30-0-0) provides a stable, highly concentrated liquid nitrogen source for spray applications. Nitro-30 is a reacted UF polymer (ureaform); a nitrogen/carbon chain material that is utilized by soil microorganisms. Nitro-30 is a true solution, containing water soluble methylene urea along with small percentages of free urea. Nitro30 provides residual nitrogen release, low volatilization and reduced leaching. It does not contain nitrates. The release of nitrogen from Nitro-30 depends on soil microorganisms, hydrolysis and UV radiation. Since this molecule contains carbon, it provides an energy source for beneficial microorganisms. The nitrogen release works in conjunction with the increase in soil temperature, microbial activity and the plant’s increased need for nitrogen. This form of nitrogen molecule resists leaching and volatilization, making it a cost effective nitrogen source. Nitro-30 is not phytotoxic to plant materials. Nitro-30 contains no suspended particles, NEEDS NO SPECIAL AGITATION, and can be used along with other technical products. It is ideal for fertigation systems and is non-clogging and non-abrasive. Nitro-30 can be safely tank mixed with many acidic and alkaline materials. It is an exclusive proprietary product of Growth Products, Ltd.

Nitro-30 is an environmentally sound product. You can apply lower nitrogen rates than with granular products while achieving better results.

Do NOT store below 32o F for long periods of time. Freezing temperatures will cause Nitro-30 to become viscous and coagulate. If frozen, place in warmer temperatures and mix with warm water Nitro-30 will regain its normal fluid state. Freezing does not affect the agronomic quality of this product. Bulk Storage: Nitro-30 can be stored in polypropylene, fiberglass, stainless or mild steel tanks. Heat does not affect this product. Recommended storage temperature for Nitro-30 is 40o F and above. When stored outside for long periods of time in temperatures <32o F it is recommended to dilute the concentrate with water by 10-15% to assure fluidity. If outside temperature is less than 20o F, store inside warehouse. Nitro-30 SRN does not require any special agitation. It is not corrosive to most metals with a slightly alkaline pH and can be used through any irrigation or spray equipment. Dilution: Nitro-30 can be diluted by either adding the concentrate to water or the water to concentrate without any detrimental effects on the final mixed product. Appropriate quantities of water should be added prior to adding potassium and phosphates or pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. Mixing: Nitro-30 SRN must first be diluted with water prior to mixing with other nutrients or pesticides. Do not mix concentrated technical materials together without first diluting with water. Care should be taken when blending Nitro-30 SRN with highly acidic materials such as phosphoric acid or ammonium sulfate. Neutralize these materials to a pH of 7 or above. Potassium

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 3/4 lb. Nitrogen twice a year as a soil drench.

GREENHOUSE & NURSERY:

Nitro-30 is a high quality, concentrated slow release nitrogen solution. It has the lowest salt index of any nitrogen source at 04. It is ideal for both supplement feeding and constant feed of nursery stock for both foliar and root uptake. This clear liquid can

3.5 oz. per gallon of water (100 ml in 4 L water) 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, 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. 1:100

Tees & Greens: Apply to tees at a rate of 1/10 to 1/8 lb. N per 1,000 sq. ft. every 7 to 14 days, with a spray unit, applying no less than 1-2 gallons of tank mix per 1,000 sq.ft. This is the recommended rate for all turfgrass species, including the new varieties of bentgrass, such as A-4 and G-2. Applying slow release nitrogen will limit excess growth, and reduce the buildup of unwanted thatch. Fairways: Apply on fairways at a rate of 1/4 to 1/3 lb. N per 1,000 sq. ft. every month, with a spray unit, applying no less than 2 gallons of tank mix per 1,000 sq. ft. Nitro+K is non-corrosive and can be applied through a fertigation system. The use of a

Nitro+K combines two important elements, nitrogen, & potassium, for quality turf maintenance. This concentrate solution provides the most efficient & reliable sources of nitrogen & potassium. Nitro+K contains a reacted UF polymer (methylene urea), which is a carbon/nitrogen chain. It resists leaching & volatilization, & provides a food source for soil microbes. Nitro+K is a safe & immediately available potassium source. With the adherence properties of this foliar solution, a turf manager can reduce yearly application rates of N & K by up to 40%, making Nitro+K a cost effective fertilizer for tees, greens, & fairways. Since potassium can be quickly absorbed by leaf tissue, turf will respond within a few days of application. The slow release nitrogen provides consistent nitrogen release without producing flush growth. This reduces unwanted thatch & possible disease problems. Flush growth has been shown to contribute to an unhealthy root system. The production of excess shoot growth takes away energy needed by the plant to produce a healthy root system. Nitro+K does not contain any chlorides, nitrates, or sulfates. This is of special importance, since these will build up unwanted salts in the soil, interfering with seed germination & causing severe plant injury.

SUGGESTED USES :

Nitro+K liquid fertilizer solution is a safe, low phytotoxic nitrogen/potassium source for all turfgrass applications (including cool, warm & transitional grasses). Nitro+K can be used with other technical materials for foliar applications. It will enhance the adhesion of some fungicides, insecticides, & herbicides (making them rainfast). When used in combination with PGRs, Nitro+K has been shown to reduce the discoloration that commonly occurs with the use of PGRs. Nitro+K is non-corrosive & non-abrasive, & can be used through any fertigation equipment.

STORAGE & HANDLING :

If stored below 32o F Nitro+K will become very viscous. No special agitation is needed. It can be tank mixed with other technical materials. Nitro+K is alkaline (with a pH of 10.5) and compatible with copper-based fungicides. Mixing: Nitro+K must first be diluted with water prior to mixing with other nutrients or pesticides. Do not mix concentrated technical materials together without first diluting with water. Care should be taken when blending Nitro+K with highly acidic materials such as phosphoric acid or ammonium sulfate. Neutralize these materials to a pH of 7 or above. Potassium phosphate, potassium chloride, potassium nitrate, urea and urea ammonium nitrate or phosphorus solutions may be readily blended with Nitro+K after dilution with water. The following mixing procedures should be used after Nitro+K has been diluted with 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 next and apply all of the mixture that day. Nitro+K can be mixed with copper based fungicides.

Growth Products 18-0-6 with 50% Slow Release Nitrogen plus micronutrients is a professional liquid fertilizer solution made from only the highest quality N-K raw materials and micronutrients to assure a safe, reliable and efficient product. 18-0-6 provides a balance of quick release nitrogen for initial green up and 50% slow release nitrogen for a continuous steady feeding. 180-6 contains methylene urea from Nitro-30 (MDU), which resists leaching and provides a release over 8-12 weeks. The potassium is readily available for both foliar and root uptake and is a non chloride source. 18-0-6 provides fast green up without producing flush growth. Since all Growth Products are TRUE CLEAR SOLUTIONS, they are ideal for spray applications for turf, foliar feed and root injection of trees and ornamentals. Growth Products solutions are non-clogging and non-abrasive to equipment. No special agitation is needed. 18-0-6 is compatible with fungicides, herbicides and insecticides and can be mixed and sprayed in one application.

TREE CARE RECOMMENDATIONS :

4 gal per 1,000 FT2 15 L per 100 m2 3 gal per 1,000 FT2 10 L per 100 m2 2 gal per 1,000 FT2 7.5 L per 100 m2 1 gal per 1,000 FT2 4 L per 100 m2

Root Application Rates: For determining tree fertilization rates, measure the trunk diameter of the tree (DBH) 4 1/2 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 2 1/2 ft. A minimum of 5 gallons of tank mix should be applied per inch of tree diameter. Inject approximately 1/2 gal. of fertilizer solution at each point. Trees & Ornamentals: Growth Products liquid fertilizers contain methylene urea, which has an extremely low salt index and resists leaching. 18-0-6 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.

MIXING :

18-0-6 can be diluted by either adding the concentrate to water or the water to concentrate without any detrimental effects on the final product. Appropriate quantities of water should be added to the tank prior to adding pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. Never mix concentrated materials together without first diluting with water. High quality buffers allow 18-0-6 to be blended with acidic or alkaline materials. The following mixing procedures should be used after 18-0-6 has been diluted with 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 before adding next. When mixing technical materials, check each product's mixing instructions. Apply all of mixture the same day.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

15-2-15 Pro-Balance with 50% SRN is produced from high quality technical and food grade raw materials. 15-2-15 is safe for both turf and horticultural applications, and is a reliable source of both N and K. 15-2-15 contains soluble, readily available potassium for immediate plant uptake to maintain sufficient potassium levels. Nutrients are absorbed both through the leaves and roots. Potassium improves the stand of stalk and increases disease resistance. 15-2-15 provides an optimal 1 to 1 ratio of N and K which is important when turf cannot use high levels of Phosphorus. No special agitation is required. 15-2-15 does not contain chlorides which can cause salt buildup. Potassium is known to improve winter hardiness of turf grass. University research indicates the importance of maintaining good potassium levels as it relates to drought tolerance. Application is suggested where soil levels of potassium are marginal, and annual applications of 2 lbs of potassium per 1,000 sq. ft. may be required.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Outside Nursery & Tree Farm, Field Grown Applications

“TKO” Phosphite™ (0-29-26) is a highly concentrated P/K nutrient solution containing mono and di-potassium salts of phosphorous acid. This clear solution is highly soluble and is rapidly absorbed into the plant tissue. It can be absorbed either through leaf tissue or roots, quickly correcting deficiencies and improving plant growth and vigor. Phosphite nutrients are known to improve turf quality and over all plant growth. “TKO” Phosphite can be used as soil and / or foliar application. Phosphorus is second only, in importance, to nitrogen and is known to play a key role in photosynthesis and root development. It has a near neutral pH and low salt index, so it is safe for all horticulture and turf applications, with very little leaching or possibility of injury to plant tissue and roots, safely supplying nutrients without detrimental environmental effects.

Apply 1 – 2 gallons per acre (3 – 6 oz. per Fairways, 1,000 sq. ft.) every 14 to 28 days during active Roughs, Sports growth period. Apply in a minimum of 65 - 86 Turf gallons of water per acre (minimum of 1 1/2 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft). Fertigation / Can be applied 5 gal per acre monthly during Athletic Fields growth period.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Nitro-22+S combines the benefits of slow release nitrogen & reduced leaching with cost-effective economics of ammonium sulfate. It provides quick absorption by the plant resulting in greener turf. Apply from early spring, when soil temperatures are low, through fall. Nitro-22+S has a neutral to slightly basic (7.58) pH & is a clear liquid solution, containing 2.2 lbs. nitrogen in every gallon, with sulfur for enhanced greening. Nitrogen & sulfur are important components of proteins. Sulfur deficiency can affect the plant’s ability to utilize nitrogen for protein synthesis. When applied to soils, Nitro-22+S immediately decomposes to quickly give available sulfur (SO4-2). This sulfur is immediately available for plant uptake, whereas elemental sulfur (S) must undergo oxidation for longer term release. The advantage of Nitro-22+S is that the sulfur needed for plant growth becomes available over several weeks & will also help reduce the pH of soils that are too alkaline. Trials have indicated that with adequate amounts of nitrogen and sulfur, certain diseases are reduced on turf.

Recover RX 3-18-18 is a highly soluble foliar, low salt index formulation. It is a unique blend of both potassium phosphite and phosphate sources to improve plant development and reduce susceptibility to various stress, while avoiding development of phosphorus-deficiency symptoms. It is rapidly absorbed into all plant tissues: leaves, stems, roots and branches. It also contains salicylic acid which is ubiquitous naturally in all plants; abiotic and biotic stress reducer. It is involved in directing plant growth, in association with metabolism. It improves the plant’s ability to survive under environmental stress such as heat, drought, salinity, cold / frost. When applied to newly seeded areas it improves seed tolerance to cold temperatures. With dramatic increases in summer temperatures for long periods, SA activates the plant’s THERMOTOLERANCE (heat shock). It is also known to reduce the

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Palm Pro 12-4-12 can be used on all palm varieties. Many palm species that are not native have special fertility needs and are more susceptible to developing nutrient deficiencies and diseases. Palm Pro can be used for a low water volume palm program as recommended for urban plantings where paved areas make it difficult to apply large volumes of water. Palm Pro/ All Pro has been formulated and tested for low salts so that it will not injure palms. This program utilizes five times less water than a standard program. Be sure to follow all mixing instruction carefully. Established Palms: The vast majority of palms are planted in sandy soils, which have a very low cation capacity and tend to quickly leach nutrients. Established palms require fertilization a

minimum of twice per year, ideally four times per year. Palm Pro has an ideal ratio of nitrogen to potassium, which is essential for healthy palms. Palm Pro contains 60% slow release nitrogen, which is important to maintain a continuous feed of nitrogen. Soil Injection: Begin root injection approximately 2-4 ft. away from trunk. Fertilizer under entire canopy in grid pattern. Inject to a depth of 6” – 8” for trees. Inject at a rate of 1 qt. of tank mix per injection site. Transplant Fertilization: Drench the root ball and soil where planting the palm with Palm Pro. Palms do not like heavy muck or clay soils and soon become water logged. Palm Pro contains humic acid and yucca which will help loosen the clay structure and allow more drainage. Foliar Fertilization: Palm Pro can be used as a foliar supplemental program for normal soil fertilization. Foliar applications will correct deficiencies, however, soil fertilization will provide more long lasting results.

Tees & Greens: Apply to tees at a rate of 1/10 to 1/8 lb. N per 1,000 sq. ft. every 7 to 14 days with a spray unit, applying no less than 1-2 gallons of tank mix, per 1,000 sq.ft. This is the recommended rate for all turfgrass species, including the varieties of bentgrass, such as A-1, A-4 and Seaside II. Applying slow release nitrogen will limit excess growth and reduce the buildup of unwanted thatch. Fairways: Apply on fairways at a rate of 1/4 to 1/3 lb. N per 1,000 sq. ft., every month with a spray unit, applying no less than 2 gallons of tank mix, per 1,000 sq. ft. Gro-Pro can be applied through a fertigation system. The use of a product that contains a high amount of slow release nitrogen has been shown to eliminate surge growth that produces unwanted thatch. It can be tank mixed with most pesticides. Soil Injection for Trees and Shrubs: Begin root injection approximately 2-4 ft. away from trunk. Fertilize under entire canopy in grid pattern. Inject to a depth of 6” – 8” for trees. Inject at a rate of 1 qt. of tank mix per injection site. Soil Drench: 4 oz in 2 - 5 gal water for smaller trees. Transplant Fertilization: Use as a drench of root ball and soil when planting trees and shrubs. Gro-Pro contains humic acid and yucca (a natural wetting agent) which will help loosen compacted clay soils and allow more drainage.

SUGGESTED USES :

Growth Products Triple 12 Liquid Fertilizer provides you with a safe, reliable and uniform release of nutrients for all special turf applications, including those for bentgrass or rye overseeding. Triple 12 is made specifically for use in fertigation systems. Triple 12 is ideally suited for root injection of trees and shrubs, or for foliar spray applications.

LANDSCAPED BEDS :

Annuals, Perennials and Ornamentals: Triple 12 provides an ideal 1:1:1 ratio for a broad variety of bedding plants. Apply Triple 12 in early spring, or at the time of planting, and repeat application every month. For small areas, mix 3 fluid oz. (6 tablespoons) in a gallon of water and drench soil around plants until runoff. For larger areas, use a reel sprayer at a rate of 1 qt (32 oz.) plus 11 gallons of water. Triple 12 can be applied using a hose-end sprayer, backpack sprayer, or watering can. Triple 12 does not contain chlorides or salts, which often cause leaf and root burn to delicate annuals.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

General Turf Applications: Growth Products Triple 12 can be applied throughout the growing season on warm, transitional and cool season grasses. Application can be started in early spring and continued through late fall at rates of 1/4 lb. N to 1 lb. N per 1,000 sq. ft. (114 g to 454 g / 100 m2). Dilute with water according to desired nitrogen rate per 1,000 sq. ft. (See chart)

Use Liquid Potassium throughout the growing season beginning in early spring, and as an additional source of potassium to supplement other fertilization programs. Apply on tees and greens using no less than 1.5 gallons of tank mix per 1,000 ft2 Liquid Potassium is compatible with most other technical turf products. Always use a jar test before mixing pesticides and fertilizers in your tank.

ADJUSTMENT:

0-0-25 Liquid Potassium

As a pH booster, 0-0-25 will adjust both water pH and soil. 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 their performance.

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, as a final feed to avoid labor, waste & spillage. For Constant Feed: Use on all nursery stock, potted & containerized plants as both foliar or root feeding.

Root Application Rates: For determining tree fertilization rates, measure the trunk diameter of the tree (DBH) 4 1/2 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 & extend the same distance from the drip line. A grid pattern should be laid out, & spacing should be every 2 1/2 ft. A minimum of 5 gallons of tank mix should be applied per inch of tree diameter. Inject approximately 1/2 gal. of fertilizer solution at each point. Trees & Ornamentals: Growth Products liquid fertilizers contain methylene urea, which has an extremely low salt index & resists leaching. 18-6-12 is a true solution & is ideal for root injection & for use through IPM units. Inject no lower than 8" below ground with correctly calibrated fertilizer injector equipment. See Injection Application Rate Chart.

HANDLING :

Dilution: 18-6-12 can be diluted by either adding the concentrate to water or the water to concentrate without any detrimental effects on the final product. Appropriate quantities of water should be added to the tank prior to adding pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. Never mix concentrated materials together without first diluting with water. Mixing: High quality buffers allow 18-6-12 to be blended with acidic or alkaline materials. The following mixing procedures should be used after 18-6-12 has been diluted with 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 before adding next. When mixing technical materials, check each product's mixing instructions. Apply all of mixture the same day.

Do not apply this product in a way that will contact workers or other persons, either directly or through drift. Only protected handlers may be in the area during application. Product Description: ® Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide is a broad-spectrum biological fungicide used for the prevention, control, and suppression of a® broad range of important soil borne and foliar diseases. Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide contains the active ingredient Bacillus subtilis GB03 for the control of Anthracnose (Colletotrichum graminicola), Brown Patch (Rhizoctonia spp.), Dollar Spot (Sclerotinia), Summer Patch (Magnaporthe poae), Fusarium Patch (Fusarium nivale), Pythium (Pythium spp.) and Root ® Rot (Phytophthora). Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide’s unique liquid formulation contains Bacillus subtilis GB03 spores that remain stable for ® more than two years. Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide's rich organic solution acts as a food source to help the Bacillus subtilis multiply and establish colonies. Bacillus subtilis GB03 is a gram-positive (spore-forming) soil bacterium. ® Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide is most effective when applied ® prior to the onset of disease. Use Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide in combination and rotation with chemical fungicides to enhance disease control. To insure optimal results in the field, it is important to store, handle, and apply the product in an appropriate manner. Modes of Action: ® Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide has multiple modes of action in preventing and controlling 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 preventing the growth and antagonistic effects of soil borne ® pathogens. Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide is known to stimulate phytohormones, which trigger the plant’s systemic resistance to disease ISR (Induced Systemic Resistance), 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’s Bacillus subtilis GB03 is classified as a Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). PGPR are free-living bacteria that have beneficial effects on plants as they enhance rooting and stimulate growth.

INTEGRATED PEST (DISEASE) MANAGEMENT (IPM)

Companion Liquid Biological Fungicide is an important tool in sound dis-® ease 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 occurs with chemical fungi® cide 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. ®

• CONTAINS 21 NATURAL L-AMINO ACIDS • CONTAINS MORE NUTRIENTS THAN ANY OTHER COMPETITIVE PRODUCT

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Essential is a 100% natural organic product derived from plant and vegetative products that provides a rich carbon source of organic matter. Essential is pasteurized and homogenized to be a homogeneous solution. Each ingredient has been selected to provide all the various stages of organic decomposition (from fast decomposers to more complex forms of carbon requiring complex decomposition). Essential contains 21 L-amino acids that promote nutrient absorption, and stimulate the plants essential metabolic activities. It also becomes an available food source for soil microorganisms. High concentrates of active, soluble humic acid, humus and cellulose fiber will help to replenish soils depleted of organic matter. Essential will improve poor or subsoil conditions and compaction. Essential will improve plant physiology with sugars, 21 amino acids and nutrients that are not available in N-P-K fertilizers.

FOOD SOURCE FOR MICROBIAL ACTIVITY:

Beneficial microorganisms need organic matter as a food source to survive and increase their population. Essential has a high carbon content that slowly decomposes, restoring organic matter back into the soil. This is especially important in overworked urban settings such as golf courses, estates, corporate sites, and other manicured landscape settings.

ENHANCES PLANT PHYSIOLOGY:

Turf, trees, ornamentals, nursery and greenhouse stock need more than just N-P-K fertilizers to remain in superior health. Essential contains vitamins, enzymes, carbohydrates, sugars, amino acids and two kelp sources: Ascophyllum nodosum and Ecklonia maxima for maximum root branching and length development. These nutrients are absorbed and utilized by the plant to enhance growth, vitality and stress resistance. Essential contains natural plant growth biostimulants that encourage cell division, root development and seed germination.

REJUVENATES SOIL STRUCTURE :

Essential contains high percentages of active, soluble humates, plant extracts, cellulose fiber and a natural wetting agent which are critical to maintain healthy soil. By adding organic matter back into soils that have been depleted, even the most difficult soil conditions can be improved. These ingredients also reduce compaction and improve cation exchange capacities.

should be applied to all renovated areas and construction sites, where soil has been removed or adequate top soil is lacking. Tree Care: Established trees and ornamentals in urban settings are often deprived of renewable organic matter during the course of grooming. Essential can be used for year-round tree care, to enhance liquid and soluble fertilizer programs. Essential should be used in the summer to reduce stress problems. All newly transplanted trees and ornamentals should have Essential applied. Transplants need additional care to promote root development and enhance the uptake of usable nutrients and storage of carbohydrates. Essential will decrease transplant shock and stimulate root growth. In excavation areas and construction sites Essential should be applied at double the normal maintenance rate. Use to avoid renovation problems such as compaction and lack of microbial activity that result in plant stress and death.

32-64 oz per 100 gallons water. For smaller applications mix 3 - 5 ounces per gal of water.

USGA Spec Tees & Greens: Essential should be part of the regular maintenance program to increase the organic matter content in soils and feed beneficial soil microorganisms. Essential should be used on newly built tees and greens to increase the cation exchange capacity. Regular use of Essential will improve the ability of sandy soils to hold nutrients. Essential will improve seed germination and stimulate root growth. Clay Soils: Calcareous soils often lead to compaction and nutrient availability problems because of the lack of organic matter. Essentialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high concentration of organic matter and natural wetting agent can penetrate encrusted soil and begin restoration. Apply Essential throughout the entire growing season. Immediately apply after aeration or top dressing has been applied. Lawn Care and Landscaping: Essential should be used in conjunction with a regular fertilization program or as a stand-alone product when a natural organic program is required. Essential

STORAGE & HANDLING :

Essential should be stored in normal warehouse conditions. Stored out off direct sunlight or temperatures above 95° for long periods of time. Replace cap after using. Never store exposed to the air. Since Essential contains a high percentage of solids it is important to mix or shake well before use. Essential is made from natural organic products and is therefore safe to handle and use. Essential is compatible with all fertilizers and technical products.

F106

The breakdown of complex organic materials is often very difficult because of the high ratio of lignin and cellulose fibers. It requires a balance of nitrogen, naturally occurring soil microbes, select enzymes. Adjustment in the ratio of C/N is essential for this breakdown to occur. This decomposition requires microbial activity to break down. If any one of these elements is missing, thatch formation in turf will increase, severely interfering with the turf's ability to absorb nutrients and water. The specific microbes contained in De-Thatcher when applied to the compost materials produce significant quantities of protease and cellulase that will digest protein contained in thatch and other organic compounds. Bacillus also produces cellulase, amylases, lipases, xylanases, and pectinases, which break down organic matter into valuable nutrients. Excellent for accelerating composting of any organic waste materials.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

pH Reducer is designed for soil and water applications, where the pH needs to be lowered into a more acidic range. Citric Acid solution is an organic based material that is a natural and environmentally sound management tool for lowering alkaline soil conditions.

Application

Turf Applications: Many calcareous soils have very high pH ranges (above 7) that make turf grass maintenance difficult. This also tends to tie up many micronutrients, leaving turf grasses chlorotic. USGA spec sands and top dressings usually have a high pH and need to be lowered to an ideal range of 6 to 6.5 pH. Apply at a rate of 2 to 6 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. on a monthly basis. Some soils contain high levels of minors that are often in an unavailable, oxidized form not available for plant uptake. By applying citric acid solutions, minors can be chelated and made more available for turf grasses. pH Reducer can be used in place of sulfuric acid and ammonium sulfate. Trees and Ornamentals: Many plant materials prefer acid soil in the pH range of 5 to 6.5. Soil pH is often above 7 from high calcium levels. By applying pH Reducer as a root injection or soil drench, soil pH can be lowered slowly and gently without any detrimental effects to the plant materials. Apply at a rate of 2 to 4 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. or 1 qt. of pH Reducer in 100 gal of water. Greenhouse Soil Mixes and Composting: pH Reducer is an ideal product to help reduce the pH of many soils and soil-less mixes.

If pH is not sufficiently 100 - 150 ppm rate lowered, continue to Initial Application: Mix 4 Greenhouse adjust pH over several - 6 fl oz per 1 gallon Growing waterings, at a rate of water Media 2-4 fl oz per gal water. (118 - 177 ml per (60 - 118 ml per 4 L water) 4L water) Hand Watering

Many water supplies have very high pH levels, and continuous application of this water will tend to raise the pH of many soils. By adding citric acid solution, hard water levels can be lowered. This will also reduce the possibility of soil pH drifting upwards. The buffer capacity of every water supply differs. Be sure to slowly add citric acid to a tank mix and check with a pH meter or litmus paper until the desired pH is reached. If tank mix is not used the same day it is mixed, be sure to check pH again and adjust if necessary. herbicides

EQUIPMENT & TANK CLEANING :

Mixing: pH Reducer is acidic. It must first be diluted with water prior to mixing with other nutrients or technical materials. pH Reducer should not be added in concentrate to highly alkaline materials. Hard and alkaline water sources will leave residues and mineral build up on tanks, lines and irrigation heads. Flush tanks and lines with a solution of 1 gallon citric acid to 100 gallons of water. Follow by flushing with water to rinse out lines to clean out drip irrigation systems.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Application

Green-Speed Si is a proprietary formula with silica, potassium phosphite, and humic acid as the active ingredients. Silica hardens the leaf and helps strengthen the xylem vessels during times of high transpiration, reducing water loss. Green-Speed Si contains Potassium Phosphite which promotes turf health and increases the turf’s resistance to disease and pests. Potassium also builds carbohydrate reserves. The humic acid increases nutrient uptake through the leaf and root tissue. It is designed for foliar application on all varieties of turf grasses on greens, tees and roughs, sports turf, lawns and ornamental grasses. Green Speed can be used in a regular maintenance program. It is best to apply Green Speed prior to heavy traffic or prior to times of heat stress.

Sodium 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. Effluent water is more often being used as a source of irrigation water where quality is questionable. 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 that need to weather. 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.

Soil Drench

Planted areas: 2 - 3 ounces per gallon of water. Thoroughly drench soil around planted area (59 - 88 ml per 4 L water) Repeat as needed.

Soil Drench or Root Injection

Established Trees - 1 qt per 100 gal tank mix. Apply a minimum of 2 times per year.

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 KnockOut with pesticides and fertilizers in your tank. 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)

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

WARNING

Correcting harmful saline-sodic and sodic soils must be carried out in steps beginning with restoration, followed by continued maintenance. Make repeated applications 2 - 4 weeks apart. Following treatment, apply adequate irrigation to wash product into the soil.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Pure Kelp SA provides a unique source of kelp from Ecklonia maxima, a brown kelp, harvested off southwestern coast of South Africa. This dynamic species of kelp serves an important purpose and function when applied to plants. It stimulates the plant to produce its own biostimulants, and trigger its own metabolites that are transported down to the root tips, causing them to elongate and generate its own cytokinins. This ultimately brings about new shoot growth and encourages cell enlargement and division in other tissues. With active cell enlargement and division, continued development within the plant promotes leaf extension and prolongs the life of plant tissues. Early abscission, due to factors such as abiotic and biotic stress is slowed down. It is a perfect addition to tank mix with our Essential 1-0-1 product and will work in synergy with the humic substances that also have an auxin-like effect.

It will provide biologically active soil conditioners, natural wetting agent and rich organic supplements with Rhizosphere beneficial bacteria and Endo and Ecto Mycorrhizae, which are a research-selected mixture of mesophiles and thermophiles that grow and metabolize in the soil in temperature ranges of 45o - 140oF. Mycorrhizae will improve uptake of nutrients, minerals and absorption of water. The Bacillus strains produce a variety of enzymes, PGRs and metabolites that aid in the breakdown of organic fertilizers and organic matter. The Landscaper’s BioNutrition can be applied to any tree or plant species to produce healthier root system, and overcome urban and transplant shock. Bacilli rapidly colonize the root’s surface of the developing root system (niche occupation), and stimulate root growth, maintain healthy root system and crowd out invading pathogens. Landscaper’s BioNutrition contains Gelscape® a unique watercontrol polymer gel that absorbs water for gradual release. The Landscaper’s BioNutrition contains 17 natural L-amino acids. They act as a natural chelating / complexing agent for cation nutrients. They also act as plant growth regulators and provide a food source for soil microbes. All amino acids have the potential to decompose into amines that go into solution in the form of plant-available nitrogen.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

Mix one to two 8 oz. packet of Total-Pak in 50 to 100 gallons of water. For ground area method, measure below drip line of tree. Use standard soil injection equipment. Pump requirements of between 100 - 200 psi is needed for good coverage. Be sure to calibrate your equipment by using a pre-measured container and time how long it takes to fill the container using the feeding needle.

ROOT INJECTION RATES :

Total-Pak should be injected into the top 4" to 8" inches of soil where feeder roots extend. Start application approximately 2-3 feet from tree trunk. Extend the same distance beyond drip line. Lay out a grid pattern. Spacing should be every 2 1/2 ft. A minimum of 1 quart of tank mix should be applied per hole. Be sure to measure the tree DBH in order to calculate the total amount of

CALCIUM / MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCIES :

Calcium and Magnesium are very important secondary nutrients and part of the chlorophyll molecule which is necessary for sugar formation. Inadequate amounts of Magnesium will first appear as a general loss of green color at bottoms of older leaves (interveinal chlorosis). Continued deficiency will also affect younger leaves, followed by formation of lesions. Calcium and Magnesium deficiencies occur mostly in soils with a high pH over 8 and acidic soils with a pH less than 6.5. High levels of calcium and potassium will also reduce Magnesium uptake. Turf Applications: Soil testing is necessary to determine levels. Where Calcium and Magnesium levels are deficient or marginal, apply Cal Mag Max throughout the growing season. This can be added to any fertilizer spray solution.

Dilution: Cal Mag Max can be diluted by either adding the concentrate to water or the water to concentrate without any detrimental effects on the final mixed product. Appropriate quantities of water should be added prior to adding potassium, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. Mixing: Cal Mag Max is NOT compatible with phosphate fertilizers, and must be mixed and applied separately. First be diluted with water prior to mixing with other nutrients or pesticides. The following mixing procedures should be used after Cal Mag Max has been diluted with water.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Organic Iron 5% is a new ORGANIC CHELATE made from a sugar based Glucoheptonate chelating agent. Organic Iron 5% is formulated for year round application on all varieties of turf grasses. It can be used in early spring for soil injection of trees and ornamentals. Organic Iron 5% is excellent as a foliar spray on all plant materials that are showing iron deficiencies. These are naturally fermented sugar acids that form soluble molecules with mineral elements. Organic Iron 5% is a very stable chelate and is a perfect choice for higher pH soils where minor elements often become unavailable to the plant. In this soil condition, Organic Iron 5% will remain available longer than other types of chelates. Plants can become deficient in iron elements because of pH imbalances. Organic Iron 5% can prevent compound deficiencies in turf and many plant materials. University studies indicate that glucoheptonates are ideal for foliar applications and are more efficient than EDTA chelates in high pH soils.

Soil Remediation

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Cal-Tec Calcium Glucoheptonate 9% is a unique sugar acid chelate that forms a 100% soluble calcium / nitrogen. This provides immediate plant uptake to correct deficiencies through both the leaves and root tissue. Calcium is known to be essential for plant membrane integrity, proper cell division and overall plant vigor and stiffness. It is important in cell wall bonding and promotes enzyme activation for starch conversion. Cal-Tec 9% can be used during hot weather to reduce stress during times of high transpiration. Calcium is also important to improve soil structure, reduce salt build up and soil compaction from road salts and urban stress. Calcium is often used to improve the cation exchange capacity of the soil, raise pH of soil and help reduce the build up of toxic salts.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS :

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, correct any deficiencies early in the spring and continue to apply throughout the growing season. Cal-Tec 9% provides immediately available calcium along with nitrogen for correction

of calcium deficiencies. Hot weather will also aggravate calcium deficiencies. Calcium deficiencies become evident at terminal bud growth, with hooked malformation and finally dying back. Soil Conditioning: Calcium is often used to improve the cation exchange capacity of the soil, raise pH of the soil, and help reduce the build up of toxic salts. Check soil analysis for calcium requirements. For sand tees and greens monthly applications are required to improve cation exchange capacity. Storage: DO NOT FREEZE. Store in heated area to prevent crystalization.

Foliar Spray

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. Mn is available for microbial activity in the soil. The pH of Manganese Chelate 5% is 7.5, making it ideal for mixing with pH acid sensitive products. It is not affected by soil conditions, other nutrients or technical grade materials. Manganese Chelate 5% will remain in a soluble form for plant uptake since it remains as a negative charge 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.

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.

MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCIES :

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 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. Turf Applications: Soil testing is necessary to determine magnesium levels. Where magnesium levels are deficient or marginal, apply Magnesium Chelate 3% throughout the growing season. This can be added to any fertilizer spray solution. Trees, Ornamentals & Palms: Magnesium Chelate 3% can be used as a soil or foliar spray to correct Magnesium deficiencies. Dilute 24-36 oz. in 100 gallons of water. Spray leaf surface until covered.

A GUIDE TO THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A TREE AND SHRUB FERTILIZATION PROGRAM Whether it is the agronomics or the dynamics of Growth Products liquids, you can provide your customer with results while increasing your bottom line.

Time Savers & Other Helpful Hints

• If part of the root zone is covered (i.e. driveway, house, pool, etc...), place injections closer together in the uncovered area. • Always monitor gallonage being used on each tree in order to avoid using too much or not enough.

• Find the ease of handling and mixing liquid products in any type of equipment • With Growth Products Arbor Care products, you have a choice of varying N-P-K ratios and any minor elements to meet your specific needs • Liquid products diffuse throughout the soil providing uniform coverage • The use of true liquid solutions eliminates costly down time and worn parts • Versatile, effective and safe applications by root injection, foliar and soil drench

• If the ground is excessively compacted, a soil drench containing Essential will help loosen the soil and allow for needle penetration.

• Soil drenches and foliar sprays are also recommended for smaller shrubs and ornamentals planted in mulch, chips or landscape stones.

• In order to avoid damaging shrubs and ornamentals from dragging hoses through and around planted and landscaped areas, liquids can be used as a foliar or soil drench.

A balanced fertilization program is one of the most important cultural practices for improving the health and appearance of landscape, trees and ornamentals. Most insect problems, diseases and physical stress are the symptoms of bigger problems beneath the soil. Many landscape areas have poor soil that is unable to maintain good, healthy growth. Such problems can be attributed pH imbalances, related macro or micronutrient deficiencies, low organic matter, or may be the result of toxins in the soil. The list of potential problems is growing as we learn more about the nutrient requirements of a healthy plant.

• For ornamentals and smaller plants, a rule of thumb is to place holes closer together and apply less fertilizer mixture per hole.

•Foliar applications of micronutrients will rapidly correct discoloration caused by chlorosis. This should be done in conjunction with a pH test and soil injection to permanently correct the problem. • Apply fertilizer to shrubs and flower beds at time of remulching.

• With Growth Products liquid solutions, there are no broken or solidified bags, no settling, no clogging, and no worn out parts from abrasion.

In the forest, and in other natural environments, the recycling of nutrients occurs naturally when leaves and other organic materials decompose. Problems occur, however, on landscapes where this natural cycle is disrupted. Most trees and shrubs on a landscaped property have to compete for nutrients with grasses and other ground covers. Without new organic matter being introduced, the soil is soon depleted. With a balanced fertilizer program, one cannot only improve the health and appearance of these plants, but also reduce the amount of damage caused by pests and physical stress. This will save time and money by reducing pesticide usage. It will also generate savings through a reduction of tree and shrub removal and replacement.

• All of our products are safe because of their low salt index and slow release nitrogen sources, the “smart” nitrogen from Nitro-30 SRN.

Design the Correct Fertilizer Program:

Calibration Method:

Fertilizer blends you use are extremely crucial when designing a program. Many of the products offered in the market contain high salts, insoluble materials and chlorine. Granular products can cause problems in pumps such as clogging or parts wearing out from abrasion, resulting in considerable downtime. With Growth Products liquid fertilizers, you will not have any of these concerns. Our program is designed by looking at the entire soil picture. It is designed to fine tune the application of N-P-K, micronutrients and natural organics.

Using a pre-measured container, time how long it takes to fill the container using the feeding needle. This will give you a more accurate determination of how long to hold the valve open per hole to reach the desired amount of ½ gal of mix per hole. This depends upon the flow rate valve output and psi. Gallons/ Minute output

A comprehensive tree and shrub fertilization program should include both early spring and early fall application program. It is recommended that a lower nitrogen, higher phosphorus and higher potassium analysis is used for a fall application. A 1:2:2 N-P-K ratio in the fall helps prepare the tree for winter stress and improve root and carbohydrate reserves for the winter. A spring application ratio of 1:1:1 for deciduous and 3:2:1 ratio for evergreens is ideal. Applications can begin in the spring when the soil is thawed to permit fertilization. During heat and drought stress conditions, the late spring – summer application of Essential Plus – a natural organic – can help strengthen the tree without any salt stress.

Fertilizer, the Procedure:

The proper method for sub surface fertilization of trees is by injection of diluted fertilizer approximately 4 - 8 inches below the surface. Fertilization should begin 2 - 3 times the DBH from the base of the tree and extend the same distance outside the drip line of the tree canopy. Each injection should be placed 2 - 3 feet apart in a grid pattern throughout the under story of the tree (see diagram)

OVERSEEDING PROGRAM Overseeding by no means is an inexpensive project. Poor germination and slow start up can lead to wasted dollars and more work. The most important goals are fast germination, fast rooting and quicker establishment of turf on tees, greens and fairways, or lawns and stadiums. Fine tuning your program will assure that costly bentgrass or perennial rye, fescue, poa trivialis (rough blue grass) get established quickly for play. In the north for re-seeding follow the “rule of thumb” for Sept 15 as your to-do date for re-seeding your cool season grasses. In the south get prepared before the cool months hit as warm season grasses go into dormancy such as T419. Your goal is to get fairways looking a brilliant green just in time for the snow birds’s heavy traffic. Each selected product in our Overseeding program serves an important purpose for quick, healthy establishment of turf for overseeding and re-seeding.

PALM PROGRAM There are many needs to consider when fertilizing palm trees, since many of the species are not native palms and are therefore, more apt to develop nutrient deficiencies and diseases. In general, native palms are more tolerant to stress. A good fertility program should incorporate a reliable slow release nitrogen source, manganese, magnesium and iron which are common nutritional disorders in palms. In addition, soils are often lacking in organic matter and lack beneficial soil bacteria. In many urban situations, paved areas often make it difficult to apply large volumes of water. In these instances, a low water volume palm program is recommended. All of the products recommended by Growth Products for this type of application have been formulated and tested to ensure low salt indices (i.e. plant materials will not be injured by chemical salts). The following program utilizes five times less water than a standard program. It is imperative to carefully follow all mixing instructions.

Transplant Fertilization:

Drench both the root ball and soil where the palm will be planted with a blend of Growth Products Palm Pro 12-4-12 with 60% slow release nitrogen. Palms do not like heavy muck or clay soils and will very quickly become water logged. If it is not possible to supplement soil mixes of this consistency with a sand/peat mix, be sure to add Essential® Plus along with Companion® Microbial Inoculant at the time of transplant. This will help loosen the clay structure and allow more drainage. For a granular supplement program add 8 oz. Landscapers Companion® or Growers Companion® for two 15 gal. palms. Mix thoroughly into soil before planting.

Established Palms:

The vast majority of palms planted in the US are non-native species and are planted in sandy soils, which have an extremely low cation capacity and a tendency to leach nutrients quickly. Established palms must be fertilized a minimum of twice per year, and 4 fertilizations per year are ideal. Growth Products’ 12-4-12 contains an ideal ratio of nitrogen to potassium (crucial for healthy palms). And since Palm Pro contains 60% slow release nitrogen, the palms will receive an even, continuous feed of nitrogen.

Soil Injection:

Begin root injection approximately two to four feet away from the trunk and out to the drip line of the tree. Check the flow rate by timing gallons per minute into a bucket. At 2 gallons per minute, it will take 15 seconds to inject ½ gallon per injection hole. Inject to a depth of 6 to 8 inches for trees. Inject at a rate of ½ gal of tank mix per injection site. Check “Palm Program” and “Low Water Palm Program” for dilution rates.

Foliar Fertilization:

Foliar fertilization with high quality liquids can be used as a supplemental program for normal soil fertilization. While foliar applications will correct many nutrient deficiencies, soil fertilization will provide longer lasting results. Both Mg and Mn chelate foliar sprays are also effective against deficiencies.

Nutrient disorders:

N- Nitrogen deficiency is common in many areas of the county where non-native species are planted. Palm trees manifest this deficiency with a light green color and decreased vigor. - K - Potassium deficiency is more widespread and most common in Florida palms. Symptoms - which appear as a translucent yellow or orange color in the leaflets -occur first on the oldest leaves and then in newer leaves. If not corrected, new growth will be affected and if left untreated, the palm will die. Potassium deficiencies are common in most palm species found in Florida. - Mg - The signs of a magnesium deficiency first occur in the palm’s oldest leaves and then spreads up through the canopy with a light yellow band along the margin of the oldest leaves, while the center remains green. While Mg deficiencies affect most species of palms, Date Palms are the most susceptible. - Mn - Manganese deficiencies affect most palms. If the deficiency is severe, the palm will take on a “frizzled” look.

SALT REDUCTION PROGRAM

With Growth Products Salt Reduction Program

Growing Tips on Salt Problems:

Salt Damage

High salt levels in soils will limit growth of turfgrasses and cause stunting, wilt, decline and even death in urban trees and ornamentals. Poor quality water, ice melters, high salt fertilizers and pesticides all contribute to this problem. This program has been designed to correct high salts that are found in many soils referred to as salinization. Irrigation water, especially affluent (reclaimed) water can be a constant source of salts or intensified by salt laden water table. Excessive salts will cause degradation of soil and vegetation. Keep in mind that salts build up in the soil over time unless neutralized or leached out and often become visible on the surface of the soil. Products with high percentages of humic acid, active calcium and organic matter will manage salt accumulation, lower salts and improve soil structure and nutrient availability. Plants

COMPOSTING PROGRAM Accelerate Biological Composting:

This program is designed to facilitate and accelerate the natural decomposition of solid waste materials to reduce residence time. The two most important elements in the composting process is the carbon / nitrogen ratio. The third most important element in composting is sufficient microbial population. Microbes are termed activators, however, the major limiting factor in composting is sufficient nitrogen for the microbial population to grow resulting in slower decomposition. Typical C:N ratio 25:1 to 40:1 by weight and vary because of biological availability. It is essential to supplement nitrogen.

This program supplements the activators -beneficial digesting microbes. In addition to quickening the composting process, they will also reduce the pathogen populations and help maintain aerobic conditions, resulting in less odor. This program will provide a reliable nitrogen source that enhances microbial activity, high power catalytic enzymes that speed up the decay rate, breaking your compost piles more efficiently.This program assures that the process is complete and compost is ready to sell while reducing rejection rates. For organic composting see below pH Reducer and BioNutrients 8-1-9. Products

HYDROSEEDING PROGRAM

Accelerate Establishment of Turf for Lawns, Golf, Sport Fields and Vegetation Growth for Erosion Control:

Erosion control by means of hydroseeding mulch, seed, fertilizer and tackifiers must promote quick germination and inhibit soil erosion. This program is designed to facilitate and accelerate the establishment of sun or shade lawn seed, athletic field mixes, pasture mixes, native grasses, wildflowers, roadside mixes and erosion control mixes. By adding the below products, higher rates of germination can be achieved, with deeper rooting and ultimately better Turf and vegetative establishment with less recall for repairs. Easily mixed with any type of hydroseed mulches, this program adds the most important elements to the mix; Rhizosphere bacteria (PGPR), Mycorrhizae and soil organic matter (SOM) that drives plant growth. All of these including biostimulants, such as humic acid and kelp, are often ignored in any soil assessment. Microbes are termed activators, can be the major limiting factor, resulting in poor vegetative establishment. This program supplements key activators. In addition to quickening growth by adding beneficial bacteria, pathogen populations can be reduced.
