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 (Nutriplant™ SD/SG/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 and Nutriplant™ SG seed treatments 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 to apply Nutriplant™ products.
However, several companies (including Enviropac and Gustafson) do manufacture equipment, large and small, for applying either liquids or powders to seed. These and others can be found on the internet. Costs start at under $200 if you did want to purchase something to aid with seed coating.
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. Pour in the APSA-80™, 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 and Nutriplant™ SG are 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.
