Carbotonic 1-0-4

Made in USA

Carbotonic 1-0-4 is a premium soil amendment that can be used anytime through the growing season and is ideal as a starter to stimulate early plant growth and plant vitality. Slow-release organic NPK (Vegetal source) eliminates the risk of phytotoxicity. It is a low odor product that delivers instant plant energy from vegetal oligosaccharides (carbohydrates). This product is designed to provide an immediate food source for microbes and includes bacillus and pseudomycetes colonies to improve the rhizosphere, and its low conductivity ensures against burning injuries to the root system. With a 35% organic matter content it is the perfect remedy for salt mitigation, herbicide injured plants and high clay content soils. The high concentrations of active, soluble humic acid and cellulose fiber help replenish soils devoid of organic matter. Regular use of Carbotonic 1-0-4 also reduces the effects of soil compaction, improves water penetration via high microbial contents and neutralizes excess salt accumulations as well as hard water source contamination. We highly recommend including our Aqueus pH reducer with this product for maximum effectiveness on difficult soils.

Emerald Ash Borer

Many of you have seen the video, “Emerald Ash Borer, The Michigan Experience” www.treeresearch.org. The video showcases many, many ash trees that were attacked by EAB and saved using the (non-drilling) Wedgle and Pointer Insecticide. Since all of these trees were damaged and under stress from EAB, the Banner Boys also recommended a special fertilizer combination (18-3-6 and Essential Plus) to help these ash trees recover. The results of this holistic approach were fantastic. Not only did the ash trees survive, they thrived! To this day, the ash trees under this treatment protocol are some of the most beautiful and healthy trees in the area. Building on this success, the Banner Boys have teamed with Banner Products to develop other “FERTILIZER FORMULATIONS” to combat/treat other tree and ornamental problems arborists and landscapers face every day. The formulation components are completely compatible and designed to be easily applied.

Powerblend 1-0-0

Enhanced Micronutrients for Chlorosis
Powerblend contains a horticulturally correct ratio of magnesium, sulfur, boron, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc (Mg, S, B, Fe, Mn, Mo, and Zn) that quickly and safely corrects chlorosis and other micronutrient problems. Its eight essential micronutrients can be immediately absorbed and utilized by trees and other plants for preventing and correcting problems, and it can be applied year-round.
What’s the key to Powerblend’s success? The complex chelation of its micronutrients. Chelated micros generally are created using citric acids which can be detrimental to microbial colonies. Peptides have been added to this chelation allowing for rapid uptake compared to traditional eddha and edta chelations. This formulation is less prone to leaching and will not become locked-up by inhospitable pH levels in the soil. When applied as a foliar spray, chelated micros – unlike unchelated micros – are able to rapidly penetrate a leaf’s waxy coating and enter into the plant, working to quickly correct deficiencies.

  • Helps correct chlorosis
  • 7 complex chelated Micros
  • Foliar & Root Absorbed Active
