Sea Agri Usage Instructions
SEA-90 is water soluble and therefore applicable to all drip irrigation systems. Our customers successfully apply SEA-90 utilizing drip irrigation on tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries and almonds. Rutgers University is currently in the second year of research trials applying SEA-90 to tomatoes through drip irrigation. The amount of SEA-90 applied is variable due to the following factors:
In a row crop raised bed system where rotation is practiced annually, 115 kg SEA-90 can be applied during the growing season. With grapes, berries, fruit and nut trees, 45 kgs per acre can be applied annually. SeaAgri recommends annual soil testing and when Na exceeds 30 ppm, the recommended application rates should be reduced by 50 percent.
SeaAgri also recommends foliar applications of SEA-90 in addition to drip irrigation.
For Drip Irrigation applications, we recommend using the following methods combined.
SEA-90 minerals and trace elements can be used alone and/or mixed with most water-soluble fertilizers. It can be added to any foliar spraying program as a mineral and trace element source. SEA-90 is a natural surfactant. By adding it to your foliar spray, it will assist in spreading and absorption of the minerals and trace elements. To increase effectiveness, add fish emulsion as a nitrogen source, humate (per manufacturer recommendations), and one half pound cane sugar per acre. SEA-90 might contain small amounts of sediment. Therefore, prior to adding dissolved SEA-90 to the spray tank, we suggest mixing the desired amount with water to allow sediment to settle and filter if necessary.
For Foliar Spray applications, we recommend using the following methods combined.
SEA-90 minerals and trace elements can replace any salt or mineral salt you are currently offering your livestock and poultry. It supplies the basic mineral package included in custom-blended products plus additional minerals and trace elements present in seawater (85 have been currently identified). If you are purchasing a blended feed or mineral product that contains salt, ask your producer to either eliminate the salt from the mix or add SEA-90 Essential Elements in its place. Many of our customers eliminated supplemental mineral and mineral mixes from their mineral programs after offering SEA-90 Essential Elements. Once incorporated into their mineral program, most customers observed positive changes within three to four weeks.
SEA-90 Essential Elements is OMRI™ listed for the production of organic food, fiber (Certificate) and all livestock (Certificate) and is pollution-free (heavy metal analysis / SEA-90 Herbicide & Pesticide Test).
SEA-90 Essential Elements can also be dissolved in livestock drinking water. Dissolve 0.7kg per 1100 liters water once every week.
For livestock application, we recommend using the following methods combined.
