  • Autumn Care can be mixed and sprayed with fungicides, herbicides and insecticides, all in one application. This saves time and money.

  • With its extremely low salt index, Autumn Care has virtually no phytotoxicity and will not burn.

BioNutrients Total-Pak 3-0-3 Injectable

30 x 8 oz pak per case

BioNutrients Total–Pak Injectable provides a complete micronutrient package along with a power–packed mix of beneficial microbes, mycorrhizal fungi and other plant boosters. Professional arborists can rely on BioNutrients Total–Pak as an easy–to–use solution to promote better establishment of transplants and to improve the health and growth of deciduous and evergreen trees.

 

BioNutrients Total–Pak includes seven strains of endo– and ecto–mycorrhizal fungi. Colonized in the soil, these fungi form a symbiotic relationship with a plant's root system, literally extending the plant's roots with white, filament–type threads. The result is better nutrient uptake (particularly of phosphorus, potassium and magnesium), better mineral uptake, and increased water absorption by the plant.

 

Total–Pak includes four types of endo–mycorrhizae and seven types of ecto–mycorrhizae. This superior blend of eleven endo– and ecto– fungal strains ensures that the correct type of fungi is present for all types of trees and climates, and that the mycorrhizae will be viable in the broadest possible range of soil temperatures and soil pHs.

 

BioNutrients Total–Pak also contains yeast and multiple strains of beneficial bacteria – including Bacillus subtilis, B. licheniformis, B. amyloliquefaciens, and B. pumilus – to improve soil health and promote plant vigor. In addition, this dry soluble includes biologically active soil conditioners, a natural wetting agent, humic acid, kelp extracts, and seven micronutrients (Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Magnesium, Molybdenum, and Zinc).

An 8–oz. package of BioNutrients Total–Pack should be tank–mixed with 50 gallons of water and injected into a tree's root zone at a depth of 4" to 8" for best results. BioNutrients is beneficial to all evergreen and deciduous trees, palms, and ornamental shrubs.

BioNutrients Soluble 8-0-9

30 x 8 oz foil pak per case

BioNutrients is a unique, dry, 100% soluble blend of humic acid, natural wetting agent, kelp, natural L-amino acids and our exclusive combination of beneficial soil bacteria along with fortified natural carriers that add rich organic material to soils. It has the added advantage of containing a natural biostiumulant to promote strong rooting. BioNutrients can be used on all fairway grasses, sports turf, lawn care and hydroseeding applications.

 

The BioNutrients formulation is designed to improve soil quality by adding rich organic nutrients that are often depleted in old and over worked soils. A powerful natural wetting agent insures deep penetration into even the most difficult and compacted soils. Once in the rhizosphere, a combination of L-amino acids, kelp and natural soil bacteria colonize and revitalize the soil with active communities of living soil microbes. The humic acid and plant extracts are rich in carbon which becomes a food and energy source for the soil bacteria colonies.

The Landscaper's BioNutrition 3-0-3

30 x 8 oz pack per bucket

The Most Comprehensive Approach To Soil Health

 

It is critical at any new construction site to properly prepare soils to ensure that the expensive landscape materials will survive the stress of transplanting. The Landscaper's BioNutrients will:

  • Condition soil structure

  • Stimulate root growth

  • Introduce valuable soil microbes

  • Colonize soils with mycorrhizal fungi

  • Improve a soil's water retention

  • Add essential carbon to soil

  • Provide slow release nitrogen

 

1. Condition soil structure

Newly planted areas often have been stripped of valuable top soil, leaving compacted subsoils with drainage problems. Landscaper's BioNutrition has a unique combination of soil conditioners – including yucca, humic acid, kelp and a high quality polymer gel for water retention – that drastically improve soil conditions for better plant growth.

 

2. Root Biostimulant

Containing natural auxin stimulating properties, the kelp, L-amino acids and rhizosphere bacteria in The Landscaper's BioNutrients promote new rooting on transplants.'

 

3. Microbial Inoculants

Among the most important elements for a balanced soil are the activities of soil bacteria. Without beneficial bacteria, large organic materials such as leaves and other debris would accumulate in an uncomposted state and litter the soil surface instead of being broken down into an available food source for plants. The Landscaper's BioNutrition contains yeast plus four strong and prolific bacillus strains, each of which decomposes leaf litter and solubilizes minerals for plant uptake.

 

4. Mycorrhizae Inoculants

The Landscaper's BioNutrition includes seven strains of endo- and ecto-mycorrhizal fungi. Colonized in the soil, these fungi form a symbiotic relationship with a plant's root system, literally extending the plant's roots with white, filament-type threads. The result is better nutrient uptake (particularly of phosphorus, potassium and magnesium), better mineral uptake, and increased water absorption by the plant.

 

5. Improve Water Retention

Moisture is critical to any newly planted tree or landscape material. The Landscaper's BioNutrition contains a unique organic polymer gel that has the ability to absorb 500 times its weight in water, allowing the gel to gradually release moisture to a plant's roots as the soil dries.

 

6. Add Important Carbon to Soil

The ingredients in Landscaper's BioNutrition provide the soil with important carbon sources. The combination of kelp, L-amino acids, humic acid and our exclusive slow release nitrogen provide food for beneficial bacterial and endo- and ecto- mycorrhizal fungi , thus ensuring the establishment and of beneficial microbes in the soil.

 

7. Provide Slow Release Nitrogen

It is important to avoid high salt fertilizers when transplanting. The Landscaper's BioNutrition contains a safe and reliable source of slow release nitrogen with a low to negligible salt index. This slow release nitrogen gradually breaks down with the increase in microbial activity to supply a steady source of available N.

Organic Iron 5%

2 x 2.5 gal case

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 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 become deficient in iron elements because of pH imbalances.  Organic 5% can prevent compound deficiencies in turf and many plant materials.  University stuies indicate that glucoheptonates are ideal for foliar applications and are more efficient than EDTA chelates in high pH soils.

pH Reducer

2 x 2.5 gal case

Growth Products' pH Reducer is a safe, organic citric acid solution. This is welcome news for golf course superintendents, farmers, and nursery owners in environmentally sensitive areas and/or those who would like to stay away from corrosive acids when it comes time to adjust a soil or water pH problem.

 

Growth Products pH Reducer is gentle on turf. With its non-burning formula, you won't run into problems like root pruning, which is quite common when using harsher acids such as phosphoric and sulfuric acid.

pH Reducer is also very safe for YOU. Corrosive acids bring with them inherent risks such as chemical burns on skin and destroyed clothes. Where safety is concerned, working with our citric acid is almost like handling common vinegar. And our citric acid will NOT eat through your clothes. Mineral acids (like phosphoric, nitric, sulfuric, and hydrochloric acids) are classified HazMats. They are not only harmful to you, but will also wreak havoc on your soil's beneficial microbe populations.

 

An added bonus is that pH Reducer can also be used to reduce the incidence of summer patch. The pathogen that causes this disease is most active at a higher pH during the spring (although the damage is not evident until summer). As a result, some turf managers apply acidifying fertilizers in the early spring to lower the pH of their thatch/soil interface. Citric acid can be easily integrated into this application for even greater lowering of soil pH levels.

Unlike mineral acids, pH Reducer will not change your N-P-K ratio, as other commonly used pH adjusters will. Nitric acid contains nitrogen, phosphoric acid contains phosphorus, and sulfuric acid contains sulfur, so they affect a soil's nutrient profile. But with the citric acid in pH Reducer, you'll get acidifying benefits without adding additional nutrient sources, so there's no need to re-think your N-P-Ks after application.

 

Note that pH Reducer can also be used as a tank mix buffer solution.

Pro-Balance 15-0-15

2 x 2.5 gal case

15-0-15 with 50% SRN is produced from high quality technical and food grade raw materials.  15-0-15 is safe for both turf and horticulture applications, and is a reliable source of both N and K.  15-0-15 contains soluble, readily available potassium for immediate plant uptake to maintain sufficient potassium levels. 

 

Nutrients are absorbed both through leaves and roots.  Potassium improves the stand of stalk and increases disease resistance.  15-0-15 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 and 15-0-15 does not contain chlorides which can cause salt buildup. 

 

Potassium is known to improve winter hardiness of turf grass and University research indicates the importance of maintaining good potassium levels as it relates to drought tolerance. 

Recover Rx 3-18-18

2 x 2.5 gal case

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 and an 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 plants thermotolerance (heat shock).  It is also known to reduce the toxic effects of heavy metals.

 

X-Xtra Iron 6-0-0

2 x 2.5 gal case

X-Xtra Iron Goes the Extra Mile for Fast Green-Up

 

X-Xtra Iron 6-0-0 contains more iron than the closest competitive product on the market. X-Xtra Iron provides 100% soluble, chelated iron in an immediately available form for both foliar and root applications. With its low nitrogen to iron ratio, X-Xtra Iron provides rapid green-up without any harmful surge growth. It's a difference you can see in just 24 hours!

But the good news doesn't stop with the long-lasting green up. X-Xtra Iron contains the three most essential nutrients for photosynthesis: iron, nitrogen and sulfur. These elements combine to give less visible but equally important improvements to your golf fairways, tees and greens by promoting strong root systems. 

X-Xtra Iron is formulated with citric acid as the chelating source. Because the citric acid chelate is quickly absorbed through plant tissue, X-Xtra Iron is good not only for rapid green up but also for correcting iron deficiencies and chlorosis. 

With its high iron content, X-Xtra Iron is a heavy liquid that weighs in at over 11 lbs. per gallon. Yet is it is extremely pure, crystal clear liquid solution with no sediment. 

X-Xtra Iron is amine compatible and be mixed with herbicides, fungicides pesticides, and other N-P-K fertilizers. X-Xtra Iron is very effective when applied with PGRs such as Primo MAXX® or Cutlass®, since its low nitrogen content will not counteract growth reduction but will prevent yellowing.
