PROTOCOL FOR COTTON
I. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
A. APPLICATION IN THE FIELD FOR NEW PLANTINGS OR TRANSPLANTING:
The recommended application rate for seed drilling or banding is 16 lbs. (2 gal.,) per acre. For individual transplants use 1 teaspoon per plant on or under the roots in the planting hole. We recommend the use of well-composted materials spread over field and turned under. Do not exceed a ratio of 10% compost to soil. Materials that are high in fulvic and humic acids are the most advantageous to the symbiosis.
Applications of approved nitrate-based fertilizers, Biosol Forte 7-2-1 or equivalent organic fertilizer should be adequate for crop production cycle. Organic fertilizers should be applied at a rate of 300 lbs. per acre. Mycorrhizal inoculation is usually most responsive at low fertility levels. To assure inoculation the University of California recommends that the nutrient levels should be below at least one of the following with the phosphorous level being the most critical:
||approx 95 lbs/ac = 105 kg/ha
||approx 64 lbs/ac = 71 kg/ha
||approx 50 lbs/ac = 55 kg/ha
||approx 23 lbs/ac = 25 kg/ha
* Nitrate forms of nitrogen are preferable to ammonium forms especially in peat mixes.
Caution: Do not use pre-plant fertilizer or fertilizers in the hole at time of planting. Added chemical or organic fertilizers will impair the BioVam's ability to establish itself in the root of the plant and delay or destroy the beneficial effects of BioVam on the plant. See our Nutrient Levels and Precautions document for a list of chemicals compatible with BioVam.
All recommendations about dosage represent a minimum amount. Increased dosages will add to speed and effectiveness of BioVam's work on the roots of your plants. Insect control should be achieved by using effective integrated pest control measures (IPM) whenever possible.
