AgriPOWER® as a Foliar Spray Fosters Added Benefits

AgriPOWER® is designed to be applied 70% as a foliar spray and 30% soil application. Why, you may ask? Because the benefits of using a foliar fertilizer are many. Let’s explain. 

A foliar fertilizer is any fertilizing substance applied in a liquid form. Modern foliar sprays are concentrated solutions using very high-grade technical elements, in which the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, are combined to the desired ratio in a controlled environment. 

The fertilizing elements in this method are true solutions, soluble, and thus very “plant available.” 

This is in contrast to soil applied (solid) fertilizer, which is applied as a powder, or granules to the soil in dry form. This then has to be dissolved by moisture, (rain or irrigation) to be “plant available” via the roots. Simply put, it must dissolve into the soil in order to be available. 

To these foliar solutions, trace elements in the form of chelates are added, along with other additives, to create a balanced fertilizer supplying not only NPK, but all of the trace elements, growth hormones, vitamins, etc. 

Many different NPK formulation combinations can be made, depending on the application required. The same elements that make up foliar fertilizer are required for plant growth and development, and are formulated to meet quite specific plant requirements. 

Fertilizing with a foliar spray is the most efficient way to improve plant health and increase yield. Foliar feeding can increase yields from 12% – 25% when compared to conventional fertilization. 

When an excellent fertilizer developed for foliar application is applied correctly, a majority of the fertilizer is utilized by the plant. When a similar amount is applied to the soil, only an approximate 10% of it is utilized. In the sandy loam, foliar spray fertilizers are more effective when compared to soil applied fertilizers. Foliar feeding is also an effective method for correcting soil deficiencies and overcoming the soil’s inability to transfer nutrients to the plant under low moisture conditions. 

The effectiveness of foliar-applied nutrients is determined mainly by Diffusion. Diffusion is the movement of elements from a high concentration to a low concentration. For diffusion to occur, the nutrient must dissolve. It is also determined by the type of blend, or formulation. Water-soluble formulations generally work better for foliar applications, as they are more easily absorbed when compared to insoluble solutions. AgriPOWER® fertilizer is 100% water soluble, making it ideal to use as a foliar spray.

How AgriPOWER® Improves Soil Fertility

If you don’t have healthy soil, you end up spending a lot of money on soil amendments, fertilizers, and more. That’s why it’s important to know that AgriPOWER® foliar fertilizers improve soil fertility, naturally. AgriPOWER® assists the beneficial bacteria in the soil in breaking down organic-based matter in the soil into humus while also providing an additional long-term benefit in providing atmospheric nitrogen for plants and nutrients in the soil. It aids in the prevention of soil erosion, increases water retention in soil, and helps maintain a healthy growth (CFU) of beneficial soil bacteria, which in turn increases soil fertility and pH.

The nutrient sources in AgriPOWER®  fertilizer increases a diversity of beneficial microorganisms. These microorganisms reduce the pH around the fertilizer molecules while they break down and feed on the organic sources. The pH reduction around the fertilizer molecules makes the nutrients more available to plant roots. Because 70% of AgriPOWER® is applied to foliage,  you most likely will not increase acidity in the soil like you would with other organic-based fertilizers. Increase in soil acidity holds true for most organic inputs directly into the soil rather than via foliar application.

Therefore, with AgriPOWER®, soil acidity may be minimized and restricted to the area by the root formation and not to the entire field. In addition, the microorganisms will create a balance in the pH of the soil around the plant after the fixation occurs in the soil.

In addition, since AgriPOWER® application method is also 30% to the soil and the 70% foliar-applied, only a minute amount is on the soil basically for enhancing microorganism colony increase, and it’s only near the root area rather than the typical common application of organic inputs to a large area of the soil like manure application via rotavation to the entire planting area. However, the amount applied to the soil is more than sufficient to help in re-establishing the soil microorganisms that further aid in Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF) 

In the long term, AgriPOWER® fosters soil rejuvenation, by potentially improving soil water-holding capacity – thus potentially providing the impetus for soil micro-organism to re-establish colonies, and fosters fauna and flora growth, a vital property for soil rejuvenation. 

How AgriPOWER® Creates a Healthy Plant

AgriPOWER® HGDF is a naturally organic-based Complete Plant Nutrition & Soil Rejuvenation System that may deliver richer quality, healthier produce, greater yields, and higher profits. The ingredients are from nature’s plants & organic-based minerals. The active ingredients act as a natural enzyme with plants to produce more chlorophyll that fosters nutrient uptake & thereby enhancing plant health, growth, and crop yields. 

Plant Health Benefits from AgriPOWER® A

AgriPOWER® HGDF A is a higher nitrogen mix derived from 100% organic sources (16-13-16). The increased nitrogen may foster foliar growth in crops. AgriPOWER® HGDF A is not a blend of separate particles of each nutrient source. Instead, the HGDF Technology fosters uniform composition in each molecule for precise nutrient availability to plants.

AgriPOWER® HGDF A blend is ideal for diverse applications, thanks to its nutrient formulation technology. Nutrients are potentially absorbed via foliar application and via soil. Nutrients released by soil microbes aid in the production of humus for better rooting and less leaching. AgriPOWER® HGDF A fosters quicker nutrient availability. It is well suited for potting mixes, leafy vegetables, broad-acre crops, top foliar-spray-dressing for fruiting vegetables, and all ornamentals. 

Plant Health Benefits and Uses for AgriPOWER® B

AgriPOWER® HGDF B is a potentially safer alternative to chemical high phosphorus and high potassium fertilizers. AgriPOWER® HGDF B is derived from 100% organic sources (13-7-30) and provides extra potassium to assist in fostering stockier, more robust plants with shorter internodes, and may stimulate plant root growth, stem vigor, flower, and fruit production. 

The high potassium content (30% K2O) in AgriPOWER® HGDF B may provide immediate nutrition to ornamental, vegetable, and fruiting crops. Nutrients are released by microbial activity which produces humus for better rooting and less leaching. AgriPOWER® HGDF B may be useful to harden ornamental or nursery plants, when little nitrogen is needed. AgriPOWER® HGDF B is to be used with AgriPOWER®HGDF A to provide a base level of potassium for vegetables and other crops that benefit from an increased source of available K. Adequate potassium nutrition leads to increased stem strength and stress tolerance.
