We feel it is necessary first off to state clearly what Rhyzogreen is not:
- It is not a biological where you’re adding microbes to the soil
- It is not a synthetic fertilizer
- It is not a micronutrient package for the plant
What we use to feed, stimulate, awaken and fuel the microbes is simply put a “direct food source specific to soil microbes”
It is a blend, a cocktail, of many, many, many natural trace elements that directly feed microbes, they act as a “superfood”.
The mode of action is what matters essentially – that is as we stimulate the microbes they then serve to unlock the nutrients that are in a locked-up state, and make them available for plant uptake. Our claims are solid as we spend a huge amount of time and resource in backing them up with data, replicated over and over and over.
As far as individual constituents and ingredients that make up the super food, that is not publicly available information, being proprietary as is standard with any industry.
Alfalfa - Apply early spring after greenup and between cuttings after plants have started showing a minimum of 2"-3" of regrowth.
Grazing Pastures - Apply early spring after greenup and repeat application every 90 days during active growing season for best performance.
Small Grain - Apply once, no earlier than 3 leaf stage.
Corn & Sunflowers - Apply once, no earlier than 3 leaf stage.
Potatoes - Apply twice a year.
Soybeans - Apply once, no earlier than second trifoliate stage.
Sugar Beets - Apply once a year, either in-furrow or foliar after 4-leaf stage.
Yard Grass Receiving Continuous Mowing - Apply early spring after greenup. For best performance repeat application every 30 days during active growing season.
Vegetables - Apply at 20 to 30-day intervals throughout growing season.
Fruit Trees - Apply 3 times per crop cycle: before flowering, early fruit stage and mid fruit stage.
It is not recommended to apply Rhyzogreen® in temperatures colder than 40°F or hotter than 90°F. A light frost of 1 or 2 degrees below freezing will not normally harm most plants and spraying can be resumed later in the day as long as daytime high is forecasted to reach at least 45°F. Ideal temperatures to apply Rhyzogreen® are between 50°F and 80°F.
Rhyzogreen can be mixed with other products, and has proven in some trials to even optimize the performance of other products. Always jar test for compatibility before first use.
A few things to keep in mind:
Perform a DILUTED jar test, not a full strength chemical jar test (full-strength Rhyzogreen® and full-strength chem). This is not realistic and often gels or foams.
It is always recommended that a tank mixed with chemicals, fertilizer, or Rhyzogreen® be applied on the same day it was mixed. This is the standard recommendation. Allowing the mixture to sit overnight may cause it to separate and could make it difficult to get it back into suspension, especially if no agitation is available. Most starter fertilizer tanks do not have agitation.
The application method is not critical. The key is to make sure the product gets either on the plant, in the ground or on the ground or so that it can go to work feeding the biology. Some common application methods are putting it in-furrow or applying as a foliar spray.
Yes, Rhyzogreen® should be stored in temperatures above freezing.
Rhyzogreen® has been proven across 30 field trials to increase alfalfa Brix (sugars) by an average of 11%. That means the plants have increased proteins, sugars, organic acids, amino acids, minerals, lipids, and pectins.
Yes, it is safe to be sprayed on pastures/forages even when they are being grazed.
Rhyzogreen® is pre-approved by the AGA (American Grassfed Association), IMI Global Where food Comes From, and National Audubon Society. More to come...
Rhyzogreen is not Non-GMO certified but yes, it is made with Non-GMO ingredients.
Rhyzogreen® is a direct food source for the soil microbial population, designed to impact root structure, plant health, and ultimately yield.
Soil health directly correlates to plant health. There is an enormous amount of nutrients in the soil, but only a small percentage is actually in a form that the plant can take up.
Soil microbes convert soil nutrients into a form the plant can absorb and use. But, if a soil's microbial community is stressed by poor growing conditions like soil compaction, excess moisture, or not enough moisture, up to 80% of microbes can remain dormant or inactive!
That's why Rhyzogreen® is designed to hyper-activate the microbes in the soil, so they can do a better job of unlocking those nutrients that are already existing in your soil.
It’s important to note that Rhyzogreen® has shown better performance in marginal and sandy soils. Simply put, there’s more room for improvement in these areas, so Rhyzogreen® makes a larger impact.
