Potatoes, red beets, carrots and onions--that is, root crops--need a special formula to help them grow. Other veggie fertilizers won't work as well, since these root vegetables need extra phosphorus and potassium, but much less nitrogen, which can cause poor crops and, in the case of potatoes, high levels of potentially toxic glycoalkaloids. Fortunately, we created this all-natural formula with root vegetables in mind. In our garden trials, plants fed with Root Crops Alive!TM produced 57% more potatoes by weight! This fertilizer will help improve the thickness of each stem so that the roots grow full and large, reduce water loss through leaves so plants hold up to dry spells, and act as an antidote to excess nitrogen. It also helps the plants resist disease. Try it when planting garlic, onions, beets, carrots, potatoes and turnips.
All-natural fertilizer provides the extra minerals root crops need to thrive.
Use on garlic, onions, beets, carrots, potatoes, turnips and more.
Perfectly balanced ratio of phosphorus and plant-based potassium.
Apply 2-3 pounds per 100 sq. ft. before planting, or side-dress when plants emerge.
For optimal results, apply again in midseason to further boost yields.
