Broad-acre crops & pasture: 2-7L/ha 1-3 times during the season
Fertigation: 2-7L/ha

Liquid Fish Hydrolysate can be used as a foliar spray or soil conditioner to feed soil microbes. It stimulates microbial and fungal activity to provide plant & soil health benefits.

Foliar applications encourage the beneficial microbial colonies to coat the surface of the leaf.  By coating the leaf, the colonies outcompete pathogenic microbes for space and food, helping to enhance natural plant immunity.

Storage:  Best used within 3 – 6 months from time of purchase.  Loosen lid in storage.  Use within 24 hours once diluted.  Do not store in diluted form.

Biological Products are less effective if applied during the heat of the day.  Apply early morning, late evening, under cloud cover or during rain to allow beneficial microbes to establish themselves.

 

  • MIXING FOR SPRAY
    Pour Bio-Fertiliser into spray tank, or mixing container, already filled with non-chlorinated water, to reduce foam buildup in tank.
  • FILTERS
    SONIC Bio-Fertilisers are filtered, however spray filters may be by-passed.

WATER:  For best results, using non-chlorinated water is suggested.  In cases of chlorinated water, allow water to sit for 24-48 hours prior to using.

Warning: Avoid spraying in full sun when temperatures are over 27 degrees celsius.
