Alfalfa Program

This alfalfa program is intended for informational use only. For the best possible results tailored to meet your needs and soil type, check with your Grower's Source™ representative for specific recommendations.

New Seeding

Pre-plantGoalReason
32 oz. per acre OVERHAUL pre-plant or with post-emergence herbicide or with run-through first water Increased stand establishment, nutrient release, and seedling vigor. Provide chemical carryover protection.

OVERHAUL is a premier product that greatly aids in alfalfa stand establishment. It conditions the soil for nutrient release. It enhances root systems by stimulating the plant by increasing the friability of the soil. As an added bonus, it combats chemical residual carryover that may have a negative effect on the seedling at this early delicate stage.

Established Stand

Normal Soil
32 oz. W.A.M. per acre
Increase water penetration; reduce compaction; enhance nutrient release. 

On most established alfalfa stands, compaction and/or water penetration are perpetual challenges. W.A.M. and OVERHAUL contain unique enzyme complexes that directly stimulate microbial life responsible for aggregating and softening the soil profile. This means better air and water management! Increased microbial life also means more nutrients will be made plant available, especially phosphorus and potassium. Yield, quality, and stand longevity are all positively affected.

 

NOTE: *For pH higher than 6.8 and/or high sodium content. Also good for chemically damaged fields.

 
*Alkali/Sodium Soil
64 oz. OVERHAUL per acre
Between CuttingsGoalReason
2-4 lbs.
FOLIARFEED or 16-32 oz. BOLT
To stimulate plant regrowth and quality

FOLIARFEED and BOLT are unique plant stimulant products that not only push growth, but aids in reducing plant stress from cutting or weather damage. When tank mixed with foliar ingredients, they greatly increase the plant's ability to absorb and utilize these nutrients. BOLT is an excellent tool to jump start regrowth!

 

Note: BOLT is very appropriate to tank mix with your foliar nutrient program targeting phosphorus, potassium, boron, and copper.

Herbicide Spray Program 

Apply 16 fl. oz. WILDFIRE™ per 100 gallon tank mix with contact herbicides. 

Fungicide Spray Program 

Apply 16 - 32 fl. oz. SSS™ per 100 gallon tank mix with fungicide. 

Insecticide Spray Program 

Apply 16 - 32 oz. Insect-X-Citer™ per 100 tank mix with insecticides. 

Note about Spraying:

We strongly recommend using an adjuvant with your spray program. Grower's Source™ specialty surfactants (SSS™, N-KEEPER™, WILDFIRE™, Insect-X-Citer™) have proven cost effective with spray applications of chemicals (fungicides, herbicides, pesticides) to allow lowest label rates with better results. The synergy can add potency and extend the chemical life and have allowed some growers to experiment and get exceptional results with well under label rates.

Please ask your Grower's Source™ representative for the appropriate product for your needs and grower's experiences in your area.

What Growers Say

"My 10 year old alfalfa stand was pretty ragged so I intended to plow it up and start over. A friend had me try the Grower's Source™ program. It looked as if it was a brand new alfalfa crop, only without the work and the extra water."
