Water management and nutrient uptake
These water management tools aid in air and water exchange critical to stimulating microorganisms in preparation for planting. They also contain formulated enzyme complexes that stimulate rapid microbiological activity, which is critical to soil aggregation and air and water management. Increased microbial life will enhance nutrient release to the plant. OVERHAUL™ will reduce chemical carryover problems.
Apply 16 oz. BOLT™ per acre, sprayed on leaves and vines. One gallon KTS per acre.
Tank mix with mid-season chemicals and nutrient sprays.
Increase grape sugar content and quality
At this stage grape plants are very active in development. Nutrient intake is critical to prepare for grape harvest.
BOLT™ is a versatile product used in many ways. By applying it throughout the season, it increases plant vigor and health and increase sugar quality and content. Its compatibility and versatile timing makes it an easy addition to other tank mixes already being applied.
Apply 32 oz. BOLT™ per acre.
One gallon KTS per acre.
To set and hold grapes
N-KEEPER™ helps make the herbicides act in a systemic way for longer retention and kill effects. SSS™ works well with fungicides. Most farmers extend spray program 2-4 days beyond normal rotation, eliminating two or three sprayings per season. WILDFIRE™ works to make contact herbicides work as intended.
NOTE: We suggest using lowest recommended label rate of the fungicide, insecticides and herbicides.
Enhance fungicides for mold and mildew
2-4 lbs. FOLIARFEED per acre sprayed on leaves with one gallon KTS
Plants need renewal of elements used in reproduction to recover and store for the next season's harvest.
Apply 16 fl. oz. WILDFIRE™ per 100 gallon tank mix with contact herbicides.
Apply 16 - 32 fl. oz. SSS™ per 100 gallon tank mix with fungicide.
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.
