In a foliage application, Liquid Humate maybe increase up to one gallon per acre. At two quarts per acre increased forage production has been as high as 150%, the yield potential will depend upon how much NPK is tied up in the soil and amount of available moisture. The more NPK is tied up in the soil, the greater the yield potential. Green back after harvesting the grass has been up to 5 days quicker on the treated forages. At the one-gallon rate, Liquid Humate can be applied on every other cutting rather then applying two quarts per cutting. Producers have reported higher yields with more moisture left over for the next cutting. We suggest for best results is to have the soil analyzed and add the needed NPK based upon the soil analysis and the need for your crop.
How does Liquid Humate increase forage production? Normally up to 30% of the NPK that is applied to the soil gets tied up before the plant can use it. Liquid Humate can aid in releasing it to the plant. When Liquid Humate enters the plant photosynthesis is increased. As a result more carbon dioxide is converted into plant sugars in the sap, thereby increasing the energy level of the sap. The plant uses the high-energy sap for plant functions, growth and most important to feed the microbes at the root level. The friendly soil microbes receiving the high-energy sap multiply faster and breaks down the compounded or tied up NPK making them available to the plant. Another indirect function is that the organic matter of the soil will increase from the waste material the friendly microbes produce. The greatest increase over controls is in soils with an organic level below 5%.
The recommendations per acre are very affordable with excellent benefits.
Always do a jar test when mixing different ingredients together to insure that they are compatible together and follow label directions on all ingredients.
