PRO-BOOSTER 10-0-0 is a combination of vegetable protein meals (such as alfalfa meal, cocoa meal, cotton seed meal, kelp meal, peanut meal, and soybean meal), animal protein meals (such as blood meal, crab meal, dried whey, feather meal, and fish meal), and natural nitrate of soda that contains 10 percent total nitrogen. The organic nitrogen in protein meals is almost 94% water insoluble, ensuring slow release.
How it works:
Supplies a slow release of nitrogen, a major component of plant life. Plants require more nitrogen than any other soil-born nutrient. Protoplasm, the living substance of plant cells, is comprised of 40-50% nitrogen.
Use as a spring or summer topdress for soils that predominantly need nitrogen. Use also for periods when plants require large amounts of nitrogen (for example, lawns comprising mostly Kentucky Blue Grass).
Directions for use:
PRO-BOOSTER 10-0-0 is an excellent spring or summer topdress for soils that predominately need nitrogen. With 3.5 percent soluble and 6.5 percent slow release nitrogen, PRO-BOOSTER 10-0-0 can green-up quickly and provide a longer lasting source of N than conventional fertilizers. Use 10 lbs per 1,000 sq.ft. on lawns. Split apply (2 applications of 5 lbs per 1,000 sq.ft. each, 30 days apart) on sandy or well drained soils. Applications during hot, dry periods are not recommended unless irrigation can be provided after applying. PRO-BOOSTER 10-0-0 is dust free and spreads easily through any type of rotary or drop spreader. It is especially suited for bluegrass lawns that have a greater need for nitrogen than other turf varieties.
For Field Crops:
PRO-BOOSTER 10-0-0 is perfect for periods of the crop's life where nitrogen is a must. Many times during the growing season heavy rains or cold soil conditions can deplete or slow down the release of organic nitrogen from the soil. Plants that lack the necessary amount of nitrogen can become stunted and lose some of their natural resistance to environmental stress conditions, resulting in significant crop losses. Pro-Booster 10-0-0 can provide valuable crops with necessary N at critical times, to avoid stress from less than adequate nutrition.
Caution: determine nitrogen requirements carefully and avoid adding too much nitrogen to your soil.
