The sister golf courses to the Houstonian, Redstone & Blackhorse are big Huma Gro users as well.

The photo was of Palm trees for palm oil.  This was in a nursery where they applied on the right 4 rows of Vitol, 4 rows nothing, then 4 rows of Breakout followed by 4 more rows of nothing.  The wind was blowing and the whole right side seemed very uniformly improved with vigor, size and color.  We could not tell a difference in the Breakout and Vitol, but all looked good, even the untreated 8 rows.  Then standing back, we could see that the whole right side was improved while the left side definitely did not have any carry over from the product applications and was lacking in vigor and color and size by comparison.  Interesting experiment and the grower was pleased with what had happened.Palm Trial

Here is another question and answer we received from one of our distributors. This is concerning application of our products in windy conditions on Asparagus.

QUESTION:

For the application on the asparagus we have thought about the wind and we have taken two things into consideration; in the area that the test is being done in is called “Paracas” (wind storms) so we have decided to do the application that they called “drench”. This means that they will take the Huma Gro mix and put it in back packs. Instead of spraying the mix, they will apply a stream of the mix directly into the soil in points that the drip system shows traces of irrigation.

The other thing is that we will take samples of asparagus that are two rows away from the test row so that we are not taking samples from a row directly on the side of a treated area.

Have you ever done this treatment on asparagus or any other crop before? If so what results did you get? How many days do you think will go by until we see some results? Should I do this application more than once during the harvest?

ANSWER

The soil drench is also very wise. This mix will be awesome in really charging the Asparagus so that they come out of the ground with good vigor. Although a first on Asparagus for me, we have done a similar type of soil drench on transplants and germinating of seeds. We normally see an earlier emergence, stronger vigor, larger size and better color. The evidence should be very clear within 5 to 7 days, but we have seen results as soon as 3 days. This can be repeated every 7 to 10 days as economics and desired results are achieved. They may be able to see even longer periods of harvest cuttings with continuous treatments.

We have created a new and simple pamphlet that gives a great overview of our products and the technology that gives Huma Gro the edge over our competition.

Here is another Question and Answer from one of our customers on how to correct NPK need found in a soil/crop analysis:

If my soil/crop analysis shows a need for N,P,K of 50 lbs/acre apiece at planting time, and I was using SuperNitro, SuperPhos and SuperK, with a drip system into the ground, what would you recommend as the application rate per treatment, and for how many treatments?

We have many times replaced regular fertilizer with Huma Gro products . I will deal with each separately.

Nitrogen.  If the source of nitrogen is UN 32 then the conversion is really straight forward.  We can reduce the amount of actual N applied by 25% to 30% soil applied nitrogen with the use of Super Nitro. With Super Nitro containing 30% N with a weight of 11 lbs per gallon, we get 3.3 lbs of nitrogen per gallon applied.  Therefore each gallon of Super Nitro will replace 1.5 gallons of UN 32 or 3.8 lbs of actual N soil applied.  Depending on the crop, I normally would apply 20% of the N in the first irrigation, 40% at the start of Stage 2 growth and  20% at the start of stage 3 and the remaining 20% at the start of stage 4.  With drip systems it is easy to distribute this amount of fertilizer uniformly through the the growth cycle but I would have it all applied by the start of Stage 4.

Phosphate:  Real easy  1 gallon of Super Phos will replace 50 units of regular phosphate.  50% of Super Phos at first irrigation, 25 % of Super Phos during Stage 2 and 25% of Super Phos during stage 3.

Potassium: Similar situation to Super Nitro.  Each gallon of Super K contains 4.4 lbs of K and will replace about 6 lbs of normally applied Potassium.  I would apply 25% at the first part of each growing stage.

I would suggest tissue tests at the beginning of each growth stage and adjust the amount needed with foliar applications of the needed elements.

As a guide to using our crop recommendation forms for nutrient recommendations, the chart asks you to enter the stage of growth that the plant is in.  I suggest that if the growth stage at the time of sampling is stage 2, that you enter stage 3 as the growth stage for recommendations so that we will have adequate nutrients for the future stage rather than the stage of growth we just passed.
