Nitrogen

Provides a rich source of nitrogen for nitrogen loving plants. Use to help plants grow quickly and to increase seed and fruit production, plant quality, and appearance.

GSN is nontoxic to plants when applied as directed. For best results, apply GSN according to recommenda- tions based on plant tissue or soil analysis for a given crop. MIXING INSTRUCTIONS: Mix well in the desired amount of water. We believe that GSN is compatible with most other fertilizers and plant nutrients with the exception of products containing high levels of Calcium such as CAN 17. Application of GSN with pesticides such as herbicides may reduce expected results. When mixing with other products it is recommended that a physical compatibility test be conducted before use. We recommend a test using small quantities in proportion to field application rates. DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Lawn and garden: To prepare a ready-to-use spray solution for foliar application, mix 1/3 to 1 tsp of GSN in 1 gallon of water. Reapply as needed 1-4 times per month. Hydroponics and Soil Systems: Use 1/3 teaspoon (0.79 g) per gallon of nutrient supply water. Reapply when the system is refreshed but not within 7 days of last application of a Grower’s Secret product. Agricultural crops: This product is a commercial fertilizer used as a plant food in the production of agricultural crops. For application instructions regarding use rates specific to crops, consult your certified crop advisor, university crop extension agent or publication or apply according to your approved nutrient management program based on plant and soil analysis. Apply as needed when plants are actively growing.
