Yard Mastery is fortunate to be able to once again bring you a new and awesome offering from our friends at Ecologel. Just look at what's in this one and see if you can find anything like it out there, anywhere.
Boron, Copper, chelated Iron, Molybdenum, Manganese, Zinc - but here's what's special - these are all available foliarly. What that means is the nutrients can be taken in by the plant, in our case, grass plants, directly through leaf tissue instead of having to get into the soil and be taken in the back door via roots.
This means the product gets in with the quickness! It also means that even if you have a soil with a problem pH you can still get benefits from this product which is why they named it "NutriSolve" - Jim Spindler, the agronomist genius behind the product is also great at naming his products!
But wait, there's more! (yeah, I had to)
It's also got some sea kelp hormones riding along which are great for healthy growth and for stimulating microbial activity.
Use rates are not crazy either. Because we are dealing with "micros" or "minors," the grass plant doesn't need a ton of them to get the benefits required... so a low 6oz/1,000 sq ft monthly is all you need.
Use a pump/battery sprayer for this one - we want it to sit on the grass blades, no need to water it in. Mix 6oz in 1 gallon of water and spray it out over 1,000 sq ft and you are good-to-go!
This is a 1 gallon jug so you are looking at 128oz. If your app rate is 6oz/1000 that means this jug will cover 21,333 sq ft. Basically speaking, this will go a LONG way.
Here is what the manufacturer says:
NutriSolve with SeaXtra is a complete blend of micronutrients formulated in the same ratio as they occur naturally in the plant. It is chelated with a combination of citric and other organic acids, which stabilize nutrients and enhance their uptake. NutriSolve is designed as a foliar spray to correct or prevent a range of micronutrient deficiencies without the addition of nitrogen. It is an excellent product for sand-based systems with low CEC’s and nutrient holding capacity. NutriSolve has also been engineered to address the lack of nutrient availability associated with pH extremes.
Application Instructions: NutriSolve can be applied through fertigation, foliar spray, soil drench, or deep root injection. It can be applied alone or tank mixed with other products. Shake well before using.
Greens and Tees: Apply 6oz. of NutriSolve diluted in1 gallon water per 1,000sq.ft. (2 gallons in 40 gallons of water per acre) every two weeks. To maximize performance, rates maybe split into weekly applications.
Fairways, Lawns, Athletic Fields and Other Turf: Apply 6 to 12oz. of NutriSolve diluted in 1 gallon of water per 1,000sq.ft. (2 to 4 gallons in 40 gallons of water per acre) per month. To maximize performance, rates may be split into weekly or bi-weekly applications.
Ornamental Shrubs and Evergreens: Mix 2 gallons of NutriSolve in 100 gallons of water and spray foliage to the point of runoff. Best results will occur when applied to actively growing foliage during periods of high humidity and low plant stress (early mornings, late afternoons and cloudy days are preferable to hot, dry conditions).
Trees and Palms: Mix 1 pint to 1 quart of NutriSolve in 100 gallons of water. Apply 5 gallons of finished solution per inch DBH (Diameter at Breast Height). The solution may be applied through deep root injection or soil drench.
Note: 6oz. of NutriSolve per 1,000 sq. ft. per month will provide the monthly maintenance rate of SeaXtra Seaweed Extract. Higher application rates will provide additional SeaXtra benefits.
