MegaPhos SP is an organic, water-soluble powder that uses the unique beneficial bacteria Bacillus megaterium HM87 to solubilize phosphorus in the soil and make it available to plants. Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for crop production, but often it is bound up in the soil and not accessible for plant uptake. The solution for this has historically been the use of phosphate fertilizers, but the phosphate in these types of products is quickly immobilized. This means more frequent applications are necessary and the danger of leaching into the ground (and the environmental concerns therein) grows. MegaPhos offers a safe and environmentally friendly solution by introducing an endospore-forming beneficial bacterium that colonizes the root zone and produces enzymes that naturally solubilize phosphorus. Additionally, this bacillus will produce metabolites that spur root production, plant growth and yield.

| 1-2 tsp. of product per gallon of water as general dilution.
|½-2 tsp. per gallon of reservoir. Reapply each time reservoir water is changed.
GREENHOUSE / NURSERY
|Soil or Soil-Less Media Incorporation
|Dissolve 1-6 oz. per 100 gallons of water and apply to soil as a normal drench (soak pot until growing media is saturated without creating runoff).
|Use ½-1 oz. per 10,000 sq. ft. Dissolve in water and spray plants until wet to run off. Reapply every 2-12 weeks.
|Use ½-1 oz. per cubic yard of soil or growing media. Blend evenly into growing media via spray, dry blender, or any other appropriate method.
OUTDOOR AGRICULTURAL APPLICATIONS
|Bed, Field or Row Preparation
|Apply 1-6 oz. per acre. Apply to the soil as a drench, through irrigation, at transplant or other means to move the product to the plants root system. Reapply every 1-8 weeks.
|Use 1-6 oz. per acre. Dissolve in appropriate amount of water and apply as a foliar spray to plants leaves until wet to run off. Reapply every 7-28 days.
| Use ½-6 oz. per acre applied over the seed or as a side dressing during furrow application.
|Apply ½ - 2 oz. per acre. Apply to the soil during tilling, bed preparation or at any time before, during or after planting or harvesting.
|Use 1-6 oz. per 100 gallons of tank water. Dissolve into reservoir before, with or after adding nutrients. Reapply each time reservoir water is changed.
|Apply 8-oz., dissolved in water, for the initial application to the soil. Apply as a foliar spray or soil application. Repeat at 16 oz. per acre every 4 weeks throughout the growing season.
|Use 10-100 grams per 100 lbs. of seed.
|Add ¼ tsp. per gallon of final compost tea solution. If creating compost tea, add after the process is complete and just prior to application.
Storage: Do not store in extremely high temperatures (above 130°F).
