residual herbicides and pesticides from the surrounding soil may be leached
into the root zones of freshly planted stock. This can be significantly
reduced by forming a protective barrier of Biogize SD around the root zone.
During planting, apply a portion of the recommended amount of Biogize SD
over the ball. Can be applied as a solution or dry. Distribute the remaining
Biogize SD throughout the soil used to fill the hole. Mix at a rate of ½ lb
per gallon of water.
Root Balls 12 inches or less in diameter use ½ lb of Biogize SD.
For root balls over 12 inches, use an additional ½ lb of Biogize SD for
each additional six inches in diameter.
Tree and Shrub Transplanting - Bare Root
The root system of transplants can be protected from possible trace
herbicides in the soil that could injure the plant during the critical
period after planting, by using Biogize SD.
Soak roots in a slurry of 1 lb of Biogize SD per gallon of water for the
recommend time given by plant provider. Transplant while roots are wet.
Also use Biogize SD in the transplant water at a rate of ¼ lb per gallon.
Tree and Shrub Protection - Barrier Method
Shrubs and trees can be protected from surrounding soil with Biogize SD.
Add Biogize SD by mixing 1 lb per gallon of water and apply into a
barrier or small moat 3-6 inches deep on all sides from which contamination
is expected. Use 1 lb of Biogize SD per 10 linear feet. Repeat as needed.
