First off, there is no perfect application schedule for these!
There is a great deal of flexibility in using the Bio Stimulant Pack. You literally can apply any of the Bio-Stimulants, anytime you want and they won’t hurt anything, they are always good for the soil. So if you are on another application schedule, you are all good, no worries You can jump in and start using this one, or stick with whatever plan you are already on.
If you are just getting started with the Bio Stimulant Pack, we recommend that you look at our free Bio Stimulant Guide.
If you are looking for a basic plan, here is one designed by our technicians:
- Air8 - apply 6 oz per gallon per 1000 sq ft at least two times a year March, September
- RGS- apply 6 oz per gallon per 1000 sq ft at least 4 times a year. March, April, September, October
- Humic12- apply 3-9 oz per gallon per 1000 sq ft any time of year (reduce rates in summer to 3 oz)
- MicroGreene- apply 6 oz per gallon per 1000 sq ft up to 6 times per year. April, May, June, July, August, September
We also have Allyn Hane's 1-sheeter Bio Stimulant Schedule that follows the general guidance in the FREE Yard Mastery app. The difference between the two is that the app has some nuance based on warm-season vs cool-season lawns whereas this 1-sheeter falls in between.
AGAIN - it’s not necessary to stick to any one plan, you can literally spray any of them anytime.
We know that we keep saying that but if you saw the panicked emails we get from people you’d know why we keep reiterating that it’s OK TO SPRAY ANY OF THEM, ANYTIME. Haha!
Lastly, if you apply your N-ext products with a hose-end sprayer, that counts as being watered in - but some of our folks like to run water after anyway - about 1/4"
If you used a pump sprayer, water it in with 1/2" right away - get it into the soil.
Here is a brief description of the what products are found in the Bio Stimulant Pack:
- RGS - Root Growth Stimulant:
We call this the “base” product in the line.
It’s got the 2 primary bio-stimulants all in one: Humic Acid (6%) and sea kelp (3%). Humic acid builds soil structure, increases water-holding capacity, and chelates nutrients.
This one has the highest concentration of humic acid in the line at 12%.
Humic acid is the final component of the natural decay of plant and animal materials. Over thousands of years, as organic materials “decompose” they end up in sediment layers known as “leonardite” and it is from this substance that humic acid is extracted via a process similar to brewing.
- Air8 - Liquid Aeration:
It is literally what its name describes: liquid aeration.
The process of “aeration” is designed to create space in the soil (especially tightly packed clay soils) so there is room for air, water, and nutrients to penetrate. The potassium hydroxide in Air8, when added to soil with water, literally breaks bonds in the soil, opening space. It literally creates a mild chemical reaction that causes soil to open up.
- 0-0-2 MicroGreene:
You will notice this is the only product that contains an “analysis” meaning, it’s the only one with actual nutrient value.
It’s a great minors blend for all grass types that also contains 2% potassium. It contains 3% iron and will give your lawn a little pop of blue-green color. MicroGreene is also spiked with 8% humic acid to help stretch the included nutrients' effectiveness and 2% sea kelp to stimulate more roots to take in those nutrients.
