ZM-Grow™ user instructions
Usage of ZM-Grow™
ZM-Grow™ is suitable for most crops, particularly; wheat, oats, corn, barley, and grass.
The product is a sulphate-based liquid concentrate that is mixed with water and sprayed on to crops.
ZM-Grow™ is chemically stable. Tank mixing experiments with various types of herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides have not caused solidification and mixtures flow clean through spraying nozzles. Farmers have been satisfied with the results.
Users have had positive experiences with the product due to its ease of use and increased yield, some as high as 1500 kg/ha (27%).
The product has been trialed in the United States, with field experiments for tomatoes, cotton, avocadoes, etc. with good results, even bettering market-leading products in some experiments. Further experiments are to be conducted in 2020 for wine grapes and rice.
How to use ZM-Grow™ fertiliser?
Shake the container well: after long storage times, there might be some sedimentation which dissolves with mixing in warm conditions.
First, do a bucket-sized mixing experiment combining ZM-Grow™, water, and your plant protection chemicals to ensure they suitably mix. This is the best approach when using ZM-Grow™ with unknown products for the first time. Generally, there should be no issue, but all agrichemicals have not been mix tested by Tracegrow.
Use 2/3 litres of ZM-Grow per hectare mixed with 200-400 Litres of Water
Fill the spraying equipment with water.
Pour in the plant protection chemicals (if used).
Pour in ZM-Grow™.
Spray the mixture evenly on the crop. Early morning/night is recommended for spraying (conditions shouldn’t be too hot, so the product doesn’t dry on the leaves).
Re-apply about 7–14 days later, if deemed necessary by visual confirmation or lab results.
The Product has been tested in Finland, England, Italy, the USA, and other countries with good yield increases, and positive feedback from farmers.
Has thus far been tested for wheat, oats, barley, grass, corn,
citrus, avocado, cotton, tomato, and potato.
Soil Conditions And Micronutrients
Macronutrient fertilisers (NPK-fertilisers) are commonly given to plants as soil-added granules. The granules slowly break down in the soil, and the nutrients are absorbed through the plant’s roots.
With micronutrients, such as zinc and manganese, application through the soil can be affected by various soil conditions.
