Thus, the application of Natural Growth contributes to the regeneration of the soil. This leads to improved moisture management and an increase in the water buffering capacity of the soil. This significantly increases the drought tolerance of the crops.
Frequent repeated crop sprays with Natural Growth contribute to more active and stronger photosynthesis, it engages plant receptors and greatly reduces fungal disease pressure.
In addition, Natural Growth contributes to an active redistribution of sugars in the plant, so that at the end of the day the sugar level in the head of the plant is quickly and effectively reduced, making the plant much less attractive to pests such as aphids, whiteflies and thrips.
Biological control agents, on the other hand, seem to develop much more strongly as a result of this product and multiply easily in the crop.
Seed treatment with undiluted Natural Growth leads to a startling increase in germination rate, germination percentage and provides a more homogeneous emergence of the seedlings and a visibly higher dry matter content in the seedlings
Each situation is different so it is actually not possible to give a tailored advice. Factors that play a role include soil structure, the organic matter content of your soil, active carbon values and the status of the soil life present.
Still, to give a general guideline:
No matter in which crop you apply compost, after application it is an ideal moment to spray Natural Growth on the applied compost at a dosage of 4 ltr. / Ha which ensures that fungi and bacteria are immediately activated and ready for their symbiosis with the roots of emerging seeds or freshly planted starting material.
Glass vegetable cultivation;
In intensive outdoor crops such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers, it is important that there is an active transformation of organic matter so that sufficient nutrients are released to provide the plant with its needs. Natural Growth is the link between microbial life and the exudates secreted by the plant.
In order to optimize this process, experience has shown that 2.5 ltr. Natural Growth via a drip system or a rain pipe.
Crop spraying to optimize the effectiveness of your assimilation and to redistribute sugars responsibly into the plant is done at a concentration of 2ltr. / 100 ltr. spray solution. In this application it is important to hit especially the upper 50-70 cm of your crop well.
Full-field cultivation & arable farming;
Natural Growth is sprayed on the fields immediately after sowing at a concentration of 4 - 8 ltr/ha depending on the soil activity observed. In several crops such as corn, maize, beets but also potatoes, remarkable yield increases of 3 - 12% have been observed. In addition, there is a strong increase in dry matter content and the crops are visibly less sensitive to drought stress.
Growing herbs in pots or in the field;
Natural Growth has already shown to be of great value in both field and pot crops. Crops are clearly more resilient, have a higher dry matter content with lower input and are much less attractive to aphids. Other pests also find the crop less attractive.
Administration in a pot culture by crop spraying 1x week 2 ltr. / 100 ltr.
Land-based Ornamental Horticulture;
Although the number of trials is still limited, we see where it is applied a clearly increased uptake of nutrients which manifests itself in a higher dry matter content and in several cases also a higher branch weight. Pest pressure also decreases due to the active redistribution of assimilates at the end of the day. The latter especially when Natural Growth is applied via spraying.
In terms of applications, we currently maintain the concentrations and frequencies of greenhouse vegetable crops.
Besides all these observations, the structure of your soil has improved remarkably and the pressure of plant-pathogenic nematodes and soil-borne fungal diseases has decreased significantly. Natural Growth contributes actively to the restoration of balance in your soil, also for the long term.
