FAQs


Q. What is Vine Vitality?

A. Vine Vitality is an all-purpose, liquid concentrate, natural fertilizer for use on all plants including fruits and vegetables, trees, vines, shrubs, flowering ornamentals, and containerized plants. It creates healthier plants, which contributes to higher yields, as well as improved pest and disease resistance. Available as a foliar feed and compatible with fertigation systems, Vine Vitality can help you increase your yield.

 

Q. Why should I choose a natural fertilizer over a chemical fertilizer?

A. In addition to their damaging effect on the environment, chemical fertilizers tend to release their nutrients quickly, so plants don’t have the chance to absorb much of them before they’re gone. The nutrients that plants are able to utilize promote rapid growth, which can deplete the plant’s stored energy reserves for hard times. Chemical fertilizers discourage natural self-sufficiency and plants can wind up with a shallower root system as they become totally reliant on the fertilizer. Conversely, Vine Vitality achieves the optimal balance between the plant and the nutrients for the healthiest possible outcome with proven results. One field trial resulted in over 150% higher grape yields compared to chemical fertilizer!

 

Q. How do I mix Vine Vitality?

A. Shake concentrate well before pouring. Mix 2 oz of Vine Vitality concentrate with 1 gallon of water. Shake well after mixing. Apply directly after mixing; do not store diluted product.

 

Q. How do I apply Vine Vitality?

A. Vine Vitality can be applied via a foliar spray or fertigation system, and is absorbed quickly by the plant. To use a Foliar Spray – mix Vine Vitality concentrate as directed. Apply as a fine mist and cover leaves thoroughly; use in early morning or late evening when rain is not expected for 48 hours.

 

Q. Why is your N-P-K ratio lower than some other fertilizers?

A. More is not necessarily better. Some fertilizers achieve short-term growth at the long-term expense of the plant. A higher concentration of nutrients can damage your plants by burning roots, causing vines to grow rapidly, decreasing fruit production and quality, or even making the plants dependent on continued applications for their survival. Vine Vitality’s specific N-P-K formulation achieves the optimal balance between the plant and the nutrients for the healthiest possible outcome.

 

Q. How much Vine Vitality do I need?

A. Vine Vitality is a liquid concentrate, and should be mixed at a 2 ounce to 1 gallon of water ratio.

Q. When should I fertilize?

A. While fertilization schedules can vary depending on your crops and soil, we recommend applying Vine Vitality once per month during the growing season, and once after harvest to replenish the soil’s nutrients. Field trials have shown that the most important treatment is at the beginning of the growing season; that’s when we see the largest improvement in growth as compared to the plants treated with chemical fertilizer.

Q. What are the benefits of using a liquid fertilizer over a dry fertilizer?

A. There are a number of benefits of liquid fertilizer over a granular fertilizer. Liquid fertilizer is absorbed by the plant much faster, typically in under 24 hours compared to up to 72 hours for granule fertilizer. Liquid fertilizer can ensure a more even application, especially over large areas. When spreading granules, it is easy to get concentrations of fertilizer in certain areas that might lead to scorching or burning. Finally, concentrated bottles of liquid fertilizer mean less storage space is required.

 

Q. Can I apply all of the N-P-K and micronutrients my crops need at once?
