A great high phosphorus feed to encourage vigorous root growth and good plant establishment. Use early in the season when plants are young.
To encourage vigorous root growth and good plant establishment. Suitable for most crops in most situations and typically used early in the season when plants are young.
- Good for helping new lawns take root and a great yield booster for potatoes.
- Stimulated root development
- Increased stalk and stem strength
- Improved flower formation and seed production
- More uniform and earlier crop maturity
- Increased nitrogen N-fixing capacity of legumes
- Improvements in crop quality
- Increased resistance to plant diseases
- Supports development throughout entire life cycle
Rate of Use –
The standard rate is 1g / litre of water. However this can vary anywhere between 0.5g / litre – 2g / litre. Use the lower rates for sensitive plants, such as pot plants under glass. The higher rates should be used on rapidly growing plants in outdoor soils.
The blue plastic spoon supplied with each pack holds ~5 grams of solufeed. Enough for a typical 5 litre / 1 gallon watering can.
DO NOT exceed 2g / litre.
Liquid Feed Application:
Used in the same way as other water-soluble fertilisers. Feed is usually applied via a normal watering can. Simply add the appropriate amount of Feed to the can, add water and apply liberally to the plant root area. A very approximate guide is 5litres / square metre.
Feed is best applied as a liquid feed whilst the plant is actively growing. Ideally alongside watering.
Plants are designed to take up nutrients through their roots, but most nutrients can be absorbed through the leaves. Foliar feeding can give crops a valuable boost. Particularly if the root system is not functioning well due to drought, disease or pest attack and other stress factors.
Feed can be applied to plants foliage via a hand or knapsack sprayer or similar equipment.
Whilst using a sprayer the following points should be observed:
• The sprayer should be fitted with a nozzle(s) that produce a fine mist.
• Only sufficient spray solution should be applied to coat the leaves and stems with a film of moisture with little or no “run-off”.
• Spraying should be carried out on a calm day, but not during strong sunshine or high temperatures. The best time is late afternoon or evening.
• If rain is imminent, spraying should be postponed. If rain falls within 4 hours of spraying, the crop should be re-sprayed 3 or 4 days later.
For application via hose-end diluters, please refer to the device manufacturer’s directions for use.
If you are in an area with acute hard water, Soluble NPK fertilisers can dry on the leaves and leave unsightly residues.
Rate of Use:
Prepare a 0.05 – 0.1% (0.5 – 1.0 g / litre) solution and apply to coat the leaves and stems with a thin film of moisture, with little or no “run-off”. DO NOT exceed a 1g per litre concentration.
