6% Iron, .05% Manganese 12-0-0, 3.3% Sulfur
6 Iron is an Iron, Manganese and Nitrogen complex for prevention and correction of nutrient deficiencies. Iron and Manganese are involved in photosynthetic and respiration systems. It assists chlorophyll synthesis and is used as a reaction catalyst. In turf, iron and manganese produce a deeper green leaf blade. The urea nitrogen enhances the uptake of these secondary and micro nutrients within the plant.
ALPHA MAT Solutions– These are exclusive Plant Food Company products which utilize our proprietary Mineral Acid Technology as the foundation to each formulation. This long-lasting acid based material performs for 21-28 days by releasing tied up nutrients, plus contains a soil penetrant for uniform water movement and salicylic acid that helps the plant manage the available moisture.
Will ALPHA MAT Solutions benefit you? When you get a heavy rainfall, does your turf “green up” dramatically a day after? If you are nodding your head YES, then ALPHA MAT Solutions will work wonders for you. This overnight green up is likely due to high bicarbonate soils. Why does this happen? Rain water pH is low and this acidic rain water solubilizes tied-up calcium bicarbonate. The available calcium can displace the sodium, and overnight, you will witness a greener, healthier turf.
When you have tied up soil nutrients, they cause no harm, but they are also not usable. So, what breaks the bonds and makes these nutrients available? The answer: ACIDS. When you can acidify the moisture around the bonded nutrients, the acidity of the water (high amounts of hydrogen) will weaken the bonds allowing the bonded nutrients to be released. In other words, ACID based products, such as ALPHA MAT Solutions, will solubilize nutrients and make them more available for plant up-take.
