Currently, two types of Nutriplant products are available: a product to apply to the foliage of any and all crops (Nutriplant AG) and a product for treating seeds of all varieties, available as a powder (Nutriplant SD) and as a liquid (Nutriplant SL).
"Biological" is a general classification for products derived from living cells. Nutriplant products contain microbial metabolites (e.g. compounds produced and used by living cells, such as protein, enzymes and amino acids).
Growers report that Nutriplant Seed Treatment results in quicker germination, more vigorous seedlings with larger root mass, improved stress resistance, less re-planting, earlier crops, and higher yields.
With Nutriplant AG, growers report improved crop quality, increased stress resistance, more extractable sugar, and higher yields.
Nutriplant SD seed treatment can be applied right in the planter box. Nutriplant SL liquid seed treatment can be applied commercially or as you would any other liquid seed treatment. Nutriplant AG can be applied using conventional ground spraying equipment, or by aerial application. It can be applied along with liquid fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or other foliar applications if the timing is right. No special equipment is needed and you don't have to make an extra trip across the field.
Yes, as long as you follow dilution and mixing instructions. Always follow the labels of each product. Caution: When in doubt, do a 'jar test' to check the physical compatibility of the products before making the tank mix.
Fill the spray tank half full of water and start the agitator. Put in the adjuvant, then add each product one at a time. Avoid putting two concentrated, undiluted products together. When in doubt, do a 'jar test'. Finish filling the tank and spray the crop to the point of run-off.
No. You can use the same water source as you use for your other spray applications.
Yes. Testing under a variety of conditions has shown that Nutriplant products have beneficial effects over a wide range of soil types and pH.
Store them in a clean, dry place at temperatures between 110 and 32 degrees F, out of direct sunlight. When storing partially used containers, make sure the lid is securely replaced. Do not store diluted product.
Each Nutriplant product has a guaranteed shelf life of 3 years when stored as directed on the label.
Nutriplant products have been evaluated at the Irrigation Research Foundation, (IRF), located in Yuma county Colorado since 1999. Nutriplant products have been tested on alfalfa, beans, corn, potatoes, soybeans, sugarbeets, sunflowers and wheat. The IRF is owned and operated by farmers. Products are evaluated under irrigated and/or dry land conditions. The IRF conducts field trials for most major agricultural companies in the US. They have an annual Farm Show in August, open to the public, to view the research, and they publish an annual report of field results. Their email address is: email@example.com.

No. Nutriplant products are intended as supplements to a regular fertilizer program and do not, by themselves, supply all the nutrients needed by crops.
Nutriplant SD is a powder, not susceptible to freezing. Nutriplant AG and Nutriplant SL are liquids. Freezing can cause crystalization, but will not reduce the effectiveness of the product. Product which has been frozen (or stored for over a year) should be thoroughly mixed before use. This can be done by inverting the jug a few times or rolling the drum across the floor.
