How much per acre should be used when applying the product?
It will vary from crops to different soils but normally 1 gallon per acre blended with water.
Can the product be used to inoculate the seed for germination prior to planting?
Yes, however, keep the seeds immersed in the Enhancers only for 10 to 30 minutes.
Is it okay if the product is applied directly on top of the seed when planting?
Can the product be applied with herbicides and pesticides?
In most cases, yes. Herbicides such as Round-up are okay, however you should avoid blending
with fungicides as they are detrimental to microbes.
Can it be applied with liquid fertilizer?
Will the product be less effective if left in the spray tank for several days before applying?
(This often happens in the event the farmer is caught in the rain or experiences equipment failure.) It is preferable
to use the product the same day that it is mixed. However, the product should be fine for several days
provided it is not subjected to freezing temperatures.
Does the product need to be agitated for a good microbial distribution
before or during application?
Yes. The product should be mixed well prior to use.
Can it be used as a foliar spray?
Absolutely. The humic acid content is actually a combination of humic and fulvic acid. The fulvic acid molecule
is very small compared to that of the humic acid. It's small, molecular structure enables it to transport the
trace minerals and microbes directly into the plant system.
What temperature does the product need to be stored when not used?
The cooler the temperature the better so long as it is not freezing.
Do I need to wear protective gear when mixing or applying the product?
The product is very user friendly, but it is always advisable to wear protective gear
as many people have unpredictable allergies.
Will the product plug my spray nozzles?
No. However, a good agitation in the tank will keep any small particles suspended.
As my GPS maps my soil, what are minimum and maximum rates to be applied?
This is not a concern, as you cannot over apply the product. World Harvest Group, SumaGrow
will improve the soil conditions regardless of the soil fertility.
How much should I reduce my fertilizer program the first year?
In general, about 50% of fertilizer should be reduced, but this naturally varies for different crops.
Does it need to be applied every year when applying on the same crops?
Yes. Salts from over-fertilization, erosion, crop harvest, excessively low or high pH values, and
low organic matter, affect the value of the soil.
Can I reduce or discontinue the use of urea when using this product?
We believe that urea nitrogen should be reduced by 50% or more depending on the crop.
Can I reduce or discontinue using syrup and/or sugar when using this product?
Yes. You should discontinue the use of sugar and/or syrup as the humic acid acts
as a complete carbon source for the microbes.
Which is the better source to use with the product: NH4 (Ammonia) or N03 (Nitrate)?
Nitrogen is available to plants in either NH4 or N03. Amonia, NH4, has a positive charge and will adhere to the soil
particles until the H ion peels off. The Hydrogen ion will negatively affect the pH in the soil rendering NH4 very unstable.
N03 is readily available for plant uptake, however, it is negatively charged and will move or leach with irrigation, rain, or
heavy soil moisture. World Harvest Group, SumaGrow will help stabilize (hold in place) either N03 or NH4. However,
NH4 is more unstable as it often converts to Nitric Oxide (N20) which is 310 times more lethal than C02.
