pHusion Manganese 7% is an acid-based manganese liquid that is ideal for correcting manganese deficiencies in the soil. The acid-based liquid formulation contains Urea-Sulfuric Acid that aids in acidifying soil. Manganese availability increases when soil pH is maintained below 7.0. Manganese influences photosynthesis and is involved in several plant enzymes that promote chlorophyll production in the plant.The result is a darker, natural green tissue.
Turf that is grown in soils that have higher soil pH than 7.0 and low manganese levels may be prone to certain undesirable disease pathogens that maycause detrimental results due to low available manganese levels. pHusion Manganese 7% can correct soil manganese deficiencies, improve plant gorwth and provide healthier plants through better nutrition when applied properly.
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.
