Growing with AGGRAND

 

Blueberries

Blueberries thrive on well-drained acid peat or moist sandy loam, but will prosper in most fertile, moist, well-drained soils with organic mulch, if the pH is 6.5 or lower. Mulch increases soil porosity and moisture retention, while encouraging the proliferation of blueberries’ shallow, fibrous roots. They do not tolerate heavy, clay, calcareous or poorly-drained soil. Fertilizers with N-P-K ratios of 1-1-1 or 1-2-1 are best suited for blueberry culture.

 

Root Applications growing natural blueberries, organic blueberries, chemical free blueberries

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

At planting: 2 gallons of AGGRAND Natural Liquid Bonemeal and 2 gallons of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 60 gallons of water. Apply to the soil after new growth appears.

 

Established plants:

2 gallons AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and one gallon of AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash and 60 gallons of water. At bud-swell, broadcast over plants.

 

Foliar Applications

 

Per-acre mix ratio:

One gallon of AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash and 50 gallons of water. Apply from bud-swell to fruit fill, apply to the leaves every three weeks. If leaves are yellow add one gallon AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and an additional 25 gallons of water to the foliar solution.

 

Post-harvest:

1 gallon of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and ½ gallon of AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash and 50 gallons of water. One application in late summer.

 

Rates vary according to soil fertility and other inputs. Lower concentrations applied more often can increase effectiveness. If other constraints allow only one trip over the field, do not exceed a 3 percent dilution rate (3 gallons AGGRAND fertilizers to 97 gallons water).

 

To reduce susceptibility to attack by insects and disease-causing organisms, apply a per-acre solution of 1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer and 50 gallons water at the first signs of infestation. Substitute 1 quart AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash for the natural fertilizer later in the season when additional nitrogen and phosphorus are not required.

 

Soil Applications

Optimize results by adding 1 gallon AGGRAND Natural Liquid Bonemeal and 1 quart AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash and an extra 10 gallons of water to the mix.
