What benefits can Chandler Organic provide?
- Enhance photosynthesis and late-season crop growth
- Deter insects by increasing plant sugar levels
- Build soil structure and reduce soil compaction over time
- Enhance deeper root penetration to improve access to soil nutrients and moisture
- Reduce water run-off and erosion problems by improving water penetration into the soil
How does Chandler Organic work?
As a soil treatment, Organic supports the growth and metabolism of soil microbes. It is formulated to improve soil fertility and tilth, reduce compaction, and improve crop yields.
Beneficial soil microbes convert nutrients to the form plants can use and transfer these nutrients to the roots. So, Organic improves soil fertility by multiplying these microbe populations. Biologically active soils will also be more flocculent or porous so there will be more air spaces among the soil aggregates, and problems with soil compaction decline over time. Also, a flocculent soil will allow more rainfall to penetrate where it falls, which reduces standing water problems and erosion from runoff. Plant roots will be able to penetrate deeper into the soil so they can pull moisture and nutrients from greater depths. Thus, the increased bacterial activity lets producers farm more of their soil.
As a foliar spray, Chandler Organic promotes efficient plant growth by increasing the building blocks of the photosynthesis process. The product includes a surfactant, so the nutrients in Chandler Foliar and other foliar fertilizers are more readily absorbed.
Also, treated plants can draw more water and nutrients from the soil in order to generate more plant sugar, deter insects and diseases and build higher crop yields. By improving plant vigor and health, Chandler Organic helps plants survive drought and extreme weather and to recover quickly from sources of stress such as chemical applications, cutting or pruning, or grazing.
What ingredients are in Chandler Organic?
Chandler Organic contains micronutrients, enzymes and other natural organic compounds that support the growth and metabolism of soil microbes and efficient plant growth. The nutrients are chelated to increase bonding of the minerals, prevent nutrient tie-up and improve nutrient availability.
These ingredients include:
- Chelated copper, iron, manganese, magnesium and zinc
- Sulfur, boron and molybdenum
- Natural surfactants
- Humic and ammonic acids
- Enzymes, amino acids and B-complex vitamins
Please note that these trace elements are included to support the biological life in the soil and are not intended as a direct source of nutrients for plants. Rather, the product increases the ability of the plants to absorb and use nutrient from foliar fertilizers and soil sources.
What is the application rate for Chandler Organic?
As a soil treatment, Chandler Organic is used at the same rates as Chandler Soil, and we recommend 8 ounces per acre in the row or 12 to 16 ounces per acre when broadcast. For foliar applications, Chandler Organic is used at the same rates you would normally use for Chandler Foliar (about 10 ounces per acre). We also use the same product handling and mixing instructions for Chandler Organic that we recommend for the other liquid products.
How does the cost for Chandler Organic compare to other Chandler Crop Products?
Due to the substitution of organic mixing agents in Chandler Soil and Chandler Foliar, the price for Chandler Organic is a bit higher than the Chandler Soil price but a bit lower than Chandler Foliar price.
Is Chandler Organic registered with any organic certifying agencies?
The product is registered under national organic certifying programs. Feel free to contact us with any specific questions.
