It does not leach or volatilize and is not eas-ily broken down. Its nitrogen will only be released by a combina-tion of factors (heat, humidity, and microbial activity). Thisproduct’s control release nitrogen produces a more consistent ni-trogen feeding curve. Timing between fertilization can be ex-tended. The slow release nitrogen is a tackifier and is less likely toleach or volitalize. The potassium is completely soluble and there-fore immediately available for plant uptake.

  • CITRUS PROGRAMLOW VOLUME FOLIAR PROGRAM FORMULATED FOR GREENING Growth Product’s Low Volume Foliar Program has gained widespread acceptance within the citrus industry as the Greening (HLB) Disease has spread throughout the United States. In Greening, the bacteria produced by the HLB disease prevent food and nutrients from being transported up and down the phloem, and infected trees starve and eventually die. With Growth Products foliar program, trees receive essential macro- and micro-nutrients through the leaves, and the trees can be sustained this way. Foliar application has always been the best practice for citrus nutrition, but with Greening Disease it’s absolutely critical. Growth Product’s are pH neutral and have extremely low salt indices. This allows the nutrients to be tank-mixed with insecticides that target the HLB disease-causing vector – the Asian citrus psyllid. A low volume sprayer goes through a grove every to 6 to 8 weeks with the insecticides, December through September.
