Foliar Feeder III Plus is a complete water soluable steroidal hormone growth product for all hays, grass crops and any other field crop you are growing. It works through the leaf by directly feeding the cells and the complete feeding subsystem of the plant being the bark, stem and plant's root system once it works itself into the soil's root feeding platform.
You should expect up to a 40% increase in grass production based on our recommended application rates outlined below. An minimum increased production of 16% to 28% have been reported for all other types of field crops, although some have reported even more!
Our USA manufacturing refinery offers you the newest in innovations in advanced technology formulation for quality fertility products. Following a few simple directions, the results are higher proteins, highest TDN (total digestible nutrients) and highest quality grasses with higher yields.
Leaves are green factories where the complex chemical processes of photosynthesis produce the compounds plants need for growth. Foliar Feeder fertilizers are absorbed right at the site where they will be used, so they are quite fast acting. Some user have actually seen plants improve within an hour of spraying. Foliar Feeder III Plus works 8-10 times more effectively to feed a plant the amount of nutrients required and the speed with which those nutrients were utilized compared to older granulated style fertilizers.
The aim of fertilization is the same either applied to the soil as a great pre-planting seed starter or foliar applied over existing grasses or field crops. It even works on nut and fruit bearing trees! Use Foliar Feeder III Plus for outstanding hay production or just for boosting up your pasture grasses for your herds.
You will always get a guaranteed protein increase by using this product over any of our competitor's like products. Build your plants up the right way by using all our foliar and soil tested products in this one complete mixture. No organics just a plan good fertility program without the extra cost.

Based on numerous university studies, we explain below why and how Foliar Feeder III Plus works so well.
Foliar feeding is a technique of feeding plants by applying liquid fertilizer directly to their leaves. It has been known for many years that plants are able to absorb essential elements through their leaves. The absorption takes place through the stomata of the leaves and also through the epidermis. Movement of elements is usually faster through the stomata, but the total absorption may be as great through the epidermis. Plants are also able to absorb nutrients through their bark or stems. A popular version of the feeding is to use Foliar Feeder III Plus nutrient mixes, especially good because they contain many of the fifty "trace nutrients"; the more "trace" is needed, the harder it is to balance the element within the soil. Trace elements are considered most fit for delivery by foliar feeding. Foliar Feeder III Plus also contains some hormones considered good for the cellular development of the plants' leaves, flowers, and fruit, again making foliar feeding useful to all who use artificial hormone applications
U. S. Atomic Energy Department provided a grant and radioisotopes of all nutrients to Michigan State University to test foliar feeder. In radioisotope tested facts after the use of foliar feeder, the isotopes showed in the plant that it was 8-10 times, or even 100% to 900% more effective to foliar feed a plant as far as the amount of nutrients required and the speed with which those nutrients were utilized. The beneficial effects of a foliar are due to an increase in cellular based chlorophyll synthesis. This means that chlorophyll production and synthesis is increased in the cells of leaves most exposed to sunlight. Chlorophyll is the green you see in leaves. We can actually see this increase in chlorophyll, cellular activity and respiration, as one of the first signs you will see in a crop, after the application of foliar fertilizer is the leaves turning a darker green. This can be measured by a Refractometer in as little as 4 hours. This increased cellular activity and respiration, increases uptake of water by the vascular system in response to increased needs of water by the leaf (this automatically brings more fertilizing elements into the plant via the vascular system).
This does not mean that the application of foliar fertilizer replaces the soil applied fertilizer, but increases their uptake. Rapidly growing plants require large quantities of water, far in excess of that found in the plant for normal synthesis of new materials. This increase in uptake automatically brings more fertilizing elements to the plant via the vascular system. This increased efficiency can reduce the need for soil applied fertilizer, which reduces leaching and run off of fertilizing nutrients. Some of the latest research shows increased quality and yield by increasing the uptake of N and P, and providing cellular phosphate at a time of high usage by the plant. A small amount of potash or phosphate can increase the yield so significantly, actually providing a better return per dollar outlayed than soil applied fertilizer. The need for more water and greater gaseous exchange stimulates additional root mass to provide it. Excess carbohydrate produced by the plant, due to greater synthesis of sugars by the increased chlorophyll, are excreted by the root hairs which stimulate microbial colonies on the root by providing additional energy sources. The bacterial colonies in turn provide auxins and other root stimulation compounds. More root tissue and root hairs increases the plants ability to uptake water and fertilizer ions. A chain reaction is set up if the right material is applied at the right time to set up this feedback loop. Greater efficiencies are to be obtained with foliar because we are stimulating the entire 'pumping' system that comprises the leaf cells. The important thing to remember is that a small amount of fertilizer used, actually increases the uptake in terms of total uptake by several fold over the amount of fertilizer applied. Some researchers suggest a 6:1 return.
By applying a foliar fertilizer directly to the leaf, it increases the activity in the leaf, at the same time increasing chlorophyll and thus photosynthesis. Because of this increased activity, it increases the need for water by the leaf. In turn this increases water uptake by the plants vascular system, which in turn increases the uptake of nutrients from the soil. By increasing photosynthesis, we increase production and efficiency.
- 1st Application in Spring during green up at a rate of 1 to 5 gallons per acre
- Additional Applications: Apply 2 to 5 gallons every 30 days after first application for best yields
- You should also apply after the first hay cutting for maximum growth potential at rates of 3 to 5 gallons per acre
- Note: Mix with a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre for even distribution
Soil Application for Newly Plated Seed Crops
- 1st Application during pre-plant of crop seeds at a rate of 3 to 5 gallons per acre (This rate is for the best root and plant growth)
- 2nd Application: Apply 2 to 3 gallons per acre 30 to 45 days following crop seed planting date
- Additional Application: Follow up every 30 days with the same application for maximum growth
- Note: Mix with a minimum of 10 gallons of water per acre for even distribution
Tree Crops after Fruit Set
- Apply 2 to 5 quarts per 100 gallons of water every 15-20 days
Tree and Shrub Root Ball
- Use 1 quart per 5 gallon of water per each ball
Example of application rate: If using 3 gallons per acre, you would mix 3 gallons of Foliar Feeder III Plus with 7 gallons of water to give you an application rate of 10 gallons per acre.
You should stop applying Foliar Feeder III Plus 30 days before the first killing frost.
To increase plant fertilization and penetrate the waxy cuticle of the leaf, add Alligare OSS/NIS or Alligare 90. This will help keep the fertilizer in place longer to improve feeding of your plants stomata.
Generally speaking, it is recommended that foliar feeding be done in the morning or evening, since hot days cause the pores on some plants' leaves to close. One way to tell if a fertilizer has been effective is to squeeze juice from the leaves of the plant and to test it with a refractometer. If after spraying with foliar fertilizer the amount of light refracted significantly rises, then foliar application was successful.
If you have not run a proper soil test, you should apply 9-23-23 made with K-Mag or a 9-23-30 in mid September at a rate of 100 to 150 pounds per acre.
- Apply via the irrigation water and in conjunction with other liquid fertilizers.
