|Made from fresh North Atlantic fish by a unique cold process that protects the vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and growth hormones. |
The nitrogen and other nutrients are chelated, so they are readily available for plants consumption. Unlike fish emulsions, Neptune's Harvest retains the fish proteins and oils and has no unpleasant odor. Best of all, it works great on everything that grows!
Neptune's Harvest fish hydrolysate is an all-natural, highly nutritional protein fertilizer. It is made by utilizing naturally occurring enzymes present in fresh North Atlantic fish. It is produced using a cold process that employs enzymes (natural biological catalysts) which break down fish, or fish frames (the part left after the fillet is removed for human consumption) to simpler protein complexes. This process is called Hydrolysis.
No synthetic materials are mixed into the fish hydrolysate. The only manipulation the product undergoes is grinding and hydrolysis. This process yields a stable, non-odorous, liquid fertilizer that is easy to use and economical. The nitrogen in Neptune's Harvest fish fertilizer is derived from fish protein in the form of amino acids which when added to the soil, slowly break down into basic nitrogen compounds. While a percentage of nitrogen becomes soluble due to the nature of the manufacturing process, no inorganic nitrogen has been added.
Neptune's Harvest Hydrolyzed Fish does not cause biological damage to the soil. It will promote the growth of beneficial bacteria making the soil less compact and better able to drain, yet hold moisture better for future plant use as it is needed. With cold processing, the vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, and growth hormones are not damaged or destroyed. Because no oils or proteins are removed, the nutrients remain in the soil longer, and lower N-P-K rates can be used to meet or exceed the results obtained by synthetic fertilizers with much higher rates. Some advantages to using hydrolyzed fish fertilizer are that it rebuilds soil, gives excellent plant growth with increased yields, and is made from a renewable aquatic resource.
Neptune's Harvest hydrolysate fertilizer is filtered through a 165 mesh screen as a first step, and then through a 150 micron screen before it is packaged. This ensures an ease of application with most irrigation sprayer systems.
Application Rate/Instructions: Shake well before using. Prepare for one application only. Do not store diluted fertilizer.
|Neptune's Harvest Application Rates |
|House Plants ||Use 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. Feed every 2-3 weeks. Do not over water. |
|Outdoor Plants ||Use 1/8 Cup (1 fl. Oz.- 1:128) per gallon of water. Feed vegetables, flowers, trees and shrubs every 2-3 weeks. Apply until soil is saturated or as a foliar feed until leaves are wet, top & bottom. It is best to foliar feed early or late in the day. |
|Lawns ||Use 1 gallon concentrate mixed with sufficient water to cover 8,000 sq. ft. Feed monthly during growing season and again in the fall. |
|Composter Enhancer ||Use ¼ Cup (2 fl. Oz.) per gallon of water every 2-3 weeks. |
|Seed Germination ||Soak in solution of 1 teaspoon per cup of water. || |
