When it comes to feeding your plants nitrogen, a soluble soy based amino acid product is the most efficient. This product is approved for use in organic farming as it is made by submitting non GMO soy beans to an enzymatic process to extract the amino acids. It is a cream coloured fine powder that will dissolve easily and quickly in water. Can be used as a drench or in a drip irrigation system, but is best when applied as a foliar spray.
When foliar feeding, you want to capture the time of day when the plant is most able to absorb and process the nutrients, which is late in the afternoon after 4:00 pm through the evening. This gives the plant time to properly process the aminos into a form that it can use over the course of nighttime. If it rains during this period, then the aminos may be washed off the leaves, and you may need to reapply.
Instructions for use:
- When applying as a drench, mix 1 ml of powder to 1 gallon of water.
- For drip irrigation, mix at a ratio of 1500-2000 times dilution rate.
- For foliar applications, mix at 3000-4000 time dilution rate.
