Q: How are the SoilBiotics Growth System Products applied?
A: Dry products are applied in-furrow or broadcast. Liquid products are applied in-furrow or beside the furrow, foliar applied, or mixed with dry or liquid nitrogen. Read and follow directions on each product label.
 
Q: How much of an increase in yield can I expect?
A: Yield is directly dependent upon the proper level of nutrients being available to any plant.
The nutrient that is in shortest supply of meeting its requirements will play the greatest role in controlling production. However, plants will be able to increase and compensate for such deficiencies with the addition of the Growth System Products. We have seen anywhere up to 30% increase in yields with SoilBiotics Growth System Products.


In Summary

The SoilBiotics Growth System has been proven to increase the uptake of available nutrients, using what is already available in the soil, which may reduce the use of traditional fertilizer.
