1 - Seed Treatment

Conventional Products

The right seed is the foundation of your crop, so get it off to a great start by using SoilBiotics 1 - Seed Treatment. This is a non-polymer liquid product that is applied to seeds up to 5 month’s pre-plant.  1 - Seed Treatment can be applied to all seeds, and is compatible with most other seed treatments*. Available in both Conventional and Organic formulations, these Humic treatments unlock the yield potential of your crop.

 

How do Humic Acids work when used as a seed treatment?

 

Humic Acid based seed treatments cover and penetrate the seed coat to desiccate germination inhibiting spores (fungal pathogens). The treatment will also trigger hormones and growth systems in the embryo during the critical early stages of germination, leading to healthier root development and stronger seedling stands. Apply these treatments directly to the seed to strengthen the whole plant, above and below the ground, before pests in the soil can attack them.

 

Benefits of using SoilBiotics 1 - Seed Treatment:

 

  • Easy to use stand-alone seed treatment
  • Increase the strike rate for faster germination and uniform emergence
  • Increase seedling stand count by 5 to 20 percent
  • Increase early vigor of seedlings to outgrow insect and disease pressure. Reduces the need for fungicides/insecticides
  • Improve quality and health throughout crop growth and development
  • Increase crop yield potential due to greater populations per acre
  • Flows well through planter
  • Wide range of pH compatibility
  • No sticky polymers or binding agents

*A physical compatibility test is recommended.

 

This product should be used within the growing season it was purchased.

Organic 2r - Soil Boost

Conventional and Organic Use

2r - Soil Boost, the SoilBiotics Conventional Growth System designation for our Organic 2r - Soil Boost , is a dry granular Humic Acid product that is the basis of the SoilBiotics Organic Growth System. It is marketed and packaged under the organic designation. It has one of the highest concentrations of Humic Acid of any of our products, and is the primary component in our multi-year program to prepare and maintain your soil in top condition for the best yields and crop performance. Humic Acid content is derived from Leonardite. Organic 2r - Soil Boost is non-toxic, safe to handle, and contains no microbes or bacteria.

 

When is Organic 2r - Soil Boost applied?

 

Applied once per year, the preferred timing for application of Organic 2r - Soil Boost is post-harvest to begin the process of soil conditioning over the winter*. However, Organic 2r - Soil Boost can be applied in the spring as well. The application rate begins at 200 pounds per acre the first year, dropping to 150 pounds per acre in year two, and 100 pounds per acre in year three and subsequent years.

 

Benefits of using SoilBiotics Organic 2r - Soil Boost:

  • Helps the soil loosen and crumble, and thus increases aeration of soil as well as soil workability.
  • Prevents soil cracking, and reduces surface water runoff and soil erosion.
  • Increases water holding capacity of soil and thus helps resist drought.
  • Darkens the color of the soil and thus helps absorption of the sun's energy.
  • Soil becomes rich in both organic and mineral substances essential to plant growth.
  • Soil retains water soluble inorganic fertilizers in the root zones and reduces leaching.
 

Improves the biological structure of soil:

  • Neutralizes both acid and alkaline soils; regulates the pH-value of soils.
  • Improves and optimizes the uptake of nutrients and water by plants.
  • Increases buffering properties of soil.
  • Enhances the uptake of nitrogen by plants.
  • Promotes the conversion of nutrient elements (N, P, K, and trace elements) into forms available to plants.

 

*NOTE: Organic 2r - Soil Boost may be blended with Sulfate of Potash (0-0-50) or Calcium Phosphate (0-17.5-0), and most other organic products. Do not mix when Organic 2r - Soil Boost or dry fertilizer is wet.

 

This product should be used within the growing season it was purchased.

6 - Growth Supplement

Conventional Products
6 - Growth Supplement is a liquid product that increases amino acids, peptides, and sugar in the plant. This results in increased cellular stimulation which then increases Brix levels in the plant.  It is compatible with most Glyphosate formulations, and may be applied with herbicides of any pH factor, fungicides, or 5-MicroNutrient Boost*. 6 - Growth Supplement may be substituted for 3 - Growth Boost in liquid nitrogen applications**.  
 
When is 6 – Growth Supplement Applied?
  • CONVENTIONAL AGRICULTURE: 6 – Growth Supplement is applied post-emergence approximately 30 days after planting and is normally applied again 1-to-2 times afterwards in 28-day intervals.
  • GARDEN: 6 – Growth Supplement is applied 5-to-10 days prior to bloom. In addition to mixing with 5 – MicroNutrient Boost, SoilBiotics SB4400 is added to this mix. See instructions for rates.
  • TURF/GRASSES: 6 – Growth Supplement is applied post-growth season for new fields, and is applied both pre-season and post-season in established fields.  In addition to mixing with 5 – MicroNutrient Boost, SoilBiotics SB4400 is added to this mix. See instructions for rates.
 
Benefits of using SoilBiotics 6 – Growth Supplement:
  • Increases in amino acids and peptides help increase cellular stimulation for stronger plants.
  • Increases in sugar levels result in a much higher Brix level, increasing the plants self-defense against insects and disease.
  • Increases the potential for higher yields.  
 
*A physical compatibility test is recommended.  See instructions for rates and application warnings.
 
** Apply 1/2 gallon per acre 6 - Growth Supplement when applying 0 to 40 units of Nitrogen.  Apply 1 gallon per acre 6 - Growth Supplement when applying 41 to 100 units of Nitrogen.
