METHODS AND RATES
DOGGETT’S NATURAL RESOURCE is an organic based soil conditioner and fertilizer enhancer. It is designed for the professional applicator, for use with professional equipment. The main ingredient of this formulation is humic acid, which has proven to assist nutrients in transferring from the soil to the plant. It also helps break up compacted soil, enhances water retention, and stimulates development of micro-flora populations in the soil. Humic acid is not a fertilizer, but instead a compliment to a good fertilizer program. The other ingredients in order of percentage in the formulation are: cold water seaweed, which is a natural plant hormone (cytokinins) and has many naturally occurring trace nutrients within the extract. Chelated iron, manganese and zinc function primarily as parts of enzyme systems for various energy transfers, assimilation and growth processes within the plant.
DOGGETT’S NATURAL RESOURCE was intended to be applied by the injection into the root/soil area under hydraulic pressure. 90% of the trees absorbing roots are in the top 12" of soil, with the majority within 6". In mature trees and shrubs, these fine roots start a good distance out from the trunk and in unencumbered soil extend well beyond the drip line. This is the area for application of soil enhancements and fertilizer. Soil injection should be 4 to 6 inches deep using a soil/ root fertilization probe from a power sprayer. Pressure of 150 to 200 lbs. should be more than adequate in good soils.
Higher pressures may be used with care in more compacted soils. The standard rate of 1 lb. per 100 gallons is recommended for soils that are basically pretty good; meaning that there is some organic matter and they are not overly compacted and fairly well-drained. The plus rate of 2 lbs. per 100 gallons is for a substandard soil with low organic matter, high compaction and little or no nutrient analysis. It is important to remember that soils in the landscape have no nutrient recycling and therefore must be supplemented.
Injection of the soil should begin at a point out from the trunk where good site judgment deems finer roots to be. Injections should be spaced 2 ½ to 3 ft. apart and extend well beyond the drip line. The quantity of solution should be ¼ to ½ gallons per injection site. Water is a critical ingredient for good plant health and should not be spared. This application should progress on a grid, within multiple plantings or when in shrub beds. For individual plantings injections can follow a concentric circle type pattern. DOGGETT’S NATURAL RESOURCE dilutes into a complete solution. When used in conjunction with a fertilizer, as is recommended, remember to reduce rates by ¼.
