PROTOCOL FORA. APPLICATION IN NURSERY:
|Nitrogen*||50 ppm||approx 95 lbs/ac = 105 kg/ha|
|Phosphorous (Olsen)||34 ppm||approx 64 lbs/ac = 71kg/ha|
|Manganese||27 ppm||approx 50 lbs/ac = 55 kg/ha|
|Zinc||12 ppm||approx 23 lbs/ac = 25 kg/ha|
|Organic Matter||10% Compost in soil|
* 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.
D. FREQUENCY OF USE OF FERTILIZER:
Two applications of Biosol Forte 7-2-1 or another organic fertilizer equivalent to NPK 7-2-1 should be adequate for the crop production cycle. This fertilizer should be applied at a rate 1/3 less than that recommended by the manufacturer per acre.
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. Soil should be treated with organic compost, not to exceed 10% to promote Streptomyces soil bacteria, trichoderma fungi and other bio-control agents. Insect control should be achieved by using effective integrated pest control measures (IPM) whenever possible. This means the use of beneficial insects or botanical insecticides. Refer to the approved product list in the Nutrient Levels and Precautions document for chemicals compatible with BioVam.
