Application & Use

Terreplenish® is a living, biological product. It contains an active community of microbes that will help boost crop production, amend the soil, and protect living plants. Continued use of Terreplenish over time will result in a healthier and more balanced plant ecosystem for your commercial farm, orchard, or garden.

See the cumulative effect on the soil, including improvements to:

  • Tilth and texture
  • Porosity (which allows for better water infiltration)
  • And overall soil health

Generally, in all crops, Terreplenish application will:

  • Enhance nitrogen availability to the target crop
  • Improve fruit set and uniformity
  • Accelerate crop maturity

General Application Facts & Methods

Storage Storage

Keep the cap tight to prevent oxygen from entering. It is best to store it in a protected environment during cooler temperatures. Once you remove some product from the container, Terreplenish® will form a white biofilm on the surface.

Before shipment, Terreplenish® is filtered through a mesh screen; however, this biofilm may appear on equipment screens after sitting in storage for a time. Also, some settling of undissolved solids will occur during storage.

On the crop production side of the approach, you can use Terreplenish® to help supply needed plant nutrition or to stimulate the growth and reproduction of the target crop. Application rates, methods, and timing may vary within the same
crop. Another consideration in using Terreplenish® for crop protection is whether the intent is preventative or curative.

These points need not complicate decision-making when applying Terreplenish® as most crops will have multiple benefits from the application of Terreplenish® regardless of our intended outcome. The ideal rate, methods, and timing can enhance specific results.

Generally, in all crops, Terreplenish® application will enhance nitrogen availability to the target crop. The methods of providing enhanced plant nitrogen availability are atmospheric conversion, stabilization, and assimilation.

Generally, in all crops, Terreplenish® application will improve fruit set and uniformity, and accelerate maturity depending on crop type and variety. Accelerating maturity can have negative marketing consequences in crops like flowers and small fruit as the harvest may be ahead of the market window.

Also, as a general rule, the longer Terreplenish® is used, the effects tend to be cumulative as the soil rhizosphere will change tilth, texture, and porosity, allowing for better water infiltration and overall soil health.

Dilution Requirements

Our label states to dilute Terreplenish® with water 1-25 or 1-50. Why? What does this mean? Terreplenish® is not a fertilizer; however, the acids formed by the many microbes is a pH of 3.2-3.8. This is a moderate-strength acid. It will irritate skin, not from toxicity, but from acidity, slightly more acid than vinegar. Some organic growers use vinegar diluted with water to kill weeds. We do not want any grower to harm actively growing plants with Terreplenish®.

1-25 dilution of Terreplenish® to water will not harm actively growing plants. Dilution recommendations are only a guideline to prevent plant injury and do not typically correlate with the recommended effective rate of Terreplenish® per acre. When living plants are absent, dilution recommendations are irrelevant and
most commonly refer to foliar applications only. However, for liability requirements of the label, we have to state a minimum of 1-25 dilution with clean water.

When no plants are present, mix only to get good physical distribution with the equipment used. For most crops, we strive to effectively apply 1-5 gallons of Terreplenish® per acre per application, regardless of how much water we mix.

Tank Mixing There are two issues to consider when tank mixing Terreplenish®. A common jar test will indicate if the physical properties of the substances being combined have any caking, separating or any other adverse reaction. When tank mixing Terreplenish®,
the other consideration is detriment effects on the living microbes. Generally, avoid salts, soaps and oils in addition to all insecticides, fungicides and nematicides. Terreplenish® is compatible with most herbicides, minor nutritional formulations and
other low rate fertilizers. Rate Recommendations

Our range of 1-5 gallons per acre is seemingly wide, except when you consider how many guests are coming to dinner. 1,000 apple trees per acre have root structures underground that are 20 times as great as a typical cornfield.

Thinking of our production acre on a three-dimensional basis, the density, age and complexity of the part of the plant that lives in the rhizosphere has vast variability that can only be imagined as it cannot be seen.

Using apple trees compared to corn as an example,1 gallon per acre of Terreplenish® in corn is a much higher than 5 gallons per acre in apple trees. Compounding the rate per acre decision is the environment where we a placing
these living communities of microbes that we call Terreplenish®.

Is it hostile or friendly? Is it dry or waterlogged? Generally, the more friendly the soil environment, the more likely the lower rate will be sufficient. In the most hostile soil environment, the highest recommended rate may not be sufficient.

When considering foliar application, the same considerations should be used. The above-ground plant structure has a living biome when plants are healthy. This is known as the phyllosphere. The phyllosphere is a term used in microbiology to refer to the total above-ground portions of plants as habitat for microorganisms.

When determining application rate, the questions need to be answered about the volume and condition of the phyllosphere. The more friendly, the more forgiving and the lower rates will provide excellent performance. If the condition is more
hostile, the higher rates may prove to be less effective than desired. Shelf Life

Concentrated formula -18 months unopened. If stored properly, Terreplenish® can have an extended shelf life (2 years+). Ph starts at 3.2-3.4 range and is good until 5 ph. Once diluted, use immediately.
