|Soil Mix||GroRite GR-150||Cost of Treatment|
|1 Quart||0.5 Tsp.||$.01|
|12 Quarts||2 Tbs.||$.15|
To reduce the required frequency of watering hanging plants during the summer months, add GR-150 to potting soil when constructing your basket.
|Transplanting Trees and Shrubs|
Generally, trees and shrubs require constant watering until their roots become reestablished. In summer conditions, using GR-150 for transplanting can reduce mortality rates by as much as 30%. Also, GR-150 does not promote rotting of the root structure.
|Size of Root Ball||GroRite GR-150||Cost of Treatment|
|2 gal.||0.25 cup||$.29|
|5 gal.||0.5 cup||$.59|
|15 gal.||1.5 cup||$1.76|
Premix GR-150 at a rate of 0.75 - 2.5 lbs. per cubic yard of soil. It is important to obtain full hydration of the crystals as quickly as possible to help stabilize the soil structure.
During prolonged transportation of plants, GR-150 can provide an adequate supply of water without any spillage. Pre-hydrate GR-150 by mixing 1/2 cup of crystals with 4 gallons of water. Let stand for 30 minutes. Fill the base of a watertight box to a level of one inch. Remove your plants from their pots and place the root balls into the Gr-150 gel. For bare-root plant transportation, make sure that the gel is firm to allow good aeration of the roots.
Prepare soil for sod. Apply GR-150 to prepared soil at a rate of between 2-10 lbs. per 100 square feet. Rake crystals into soil (optional). Lay sod and water well.
|Area to Sod||GroRite GR-150||Cost of Treatment|
|1000 sq. ft.||5 lbs.||$22|
|5000 sq. ft.||25 lbs.||$109|
|10000 sq. ft.||50 lbs.||$218|
|The application of GR-150 can reduce watering requirements by as much as 60% in the summer months. Your newly laid turf will quickly establish a vigorous root structure requiring less care.|
