Not all nutrient sources are created equal and that's why it's important to choose a high quality liquid starter. Mobility and availability of phosphate depends on microbial communities in the soil to make phosphate available through their normal life cycles. When soils are cold in the spring during planting season, soil life is dormant and not releasing adequate quantities of phosphorus for the hungry seedlings. So, until your soil warms up and starts making phosphorous and other nutrients available, your plants will still need you to supply their food in the form of starter fertilizer.
Applying Blend 39 can give your plants that head-start they need until the soil life "wakes up". By using microbe-friendly orthophosphate, damage to soil life is minimized and no harmful heavy metals are introduced into this delicate ecosystem on which your plants depend for a season full of nutrients.
Blend 39 Liquid Fertilizer contains high quality sources of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The phosphorus in Blend 39 is 100% pure, clean and clear orthophosphate which is one of the highest quality, most available forms of phosphorus on the market today. Aqua ammonia and urea are used as nitrogen sources and potassium hydroxide is the source of potassium. Finally, pure mineral-rich Ontario water, along with these high quality ingredients combine to offer a liquid solution with perfect pH to build an excellent growing environment.
Blend 39 is your perfect starter for winter crops that will promote fast and strong root growth for extra winter-hardiness. With its 18% potassium, it is an ideal foliar to be used mid-season when potassium requirements are highest in your crop to enable the strongest pollination, fruit set and nutrient uptake. Blend 39 is applied at a rate of between 15 and 25 L/ac depending on crop, timing of application, method of application and results of soil and/or tissue analysis.
We recommend adding Ignite S2 or FoliarBlend™ to your tank along with Blend 39 for even better results. Ignite S2 and FoliarBlend are high quality bio-stimulant products that provide a super-charged boost of energy and nutrition to microbes in your soil and microbes on plant leaf tissue. When used in combination with Blend 36 or Blend 39, Ignite S2 and FoliarBlend increase the nutrient efficiency of your fertilizer. Ignite S2 should be added to your starter solutions, while FoliarBlend should be added to your foliar sprays.
The products we offer are designed to be used together as part of a full-year nutritional program. For more information on use, application rates and timing for specific crops contact Agriculture Solutions today.
