Right Start® Fertilizer PacketsRight Start® Fertilizer Packets are specifically formulated for severely disturbed planting sites. They have been added to tree planting treatments in thousands of acres of road bed deactivation, mine land reclamation and other disturbed site applications with phenomenal success. The balanced, controlled release fertilizer is complimented with Bio-stimulants that assist the plant with nutrient assimilation in lieu of adequate microbial activity common to these types of disturbed sites. The increased root mass created by this planting treatment has been shown to produce a dramatic improvement in survival and plant vigor for five years or longer.
Diffusion, or the movement from areas of high to lower concentrations, is the means by which nutrients are released from the advanced polymer coated controlled release fertilizers in the Right Start Fertilizer Packets. Encasing advanced polymer coated fertilizer in a Right Start Fertilizer Packet enables the nutrient solution to gradually diffuse from the source to the plant's root system. Aggressive root development is promoted when direct feeding of transplants and adsorption of nutrients to nearby soil particles occurs.
Improved tree seedling survival, greater root development and better mycorrhizal infection resulting from greater root mass. Greater drought resistance associated with increased mycorrhizal infection.
Use on heavily disturbed planting sites containing parent material with low organic levels.
