Myth Number One:
When summer arrives, put away the sprayer
Just because Mother Nature has cranked up the heat, it doesn’t mean you can’t spray or spread Holganix Bio 800+ on turf or plants. Holganix Bio 800+ products have no burn potential and Holganix granular products have very little burn potential.
What's really cool is that Holganix Holganix Bio 800+ can actually help you maintain turf health when summer stress and drought conditions hit. While your turf may still go dormant, Holganix Bio 800+ helps the grass go into dormancy later and come out earlier than traditional synthetic fertilizers. It’s also a great upsell for homeowners, and who doesn’t like a little extra revenue during the slow season?
Myth Number Two:
You can’t spray Holganix in the fall
Just because autumn hits, it doesn’t mean you can’t spray Holganix Bio 800+ products. The winter of 2013-2014 was brutal. In many regions, spring arrived several weeks late, putting pressure on turf professionals as they dealt with a constrained spring season. Many Holganix users noticed that if they sprayed Holganix Bio 800+ last fall, they had less winter injury than those that didn’t.
Winter tolerance further increased for those that have been using Holganix Bio 800+ for more than a year. While many still had winter injury, they weren’t suffering on the same scale as those that used traditional synthetic means. It just goes to show how important nourishing and caring for your soil and root systems can be.
Myth Number Three:
When it comes to compost, a tea is a tea
Not all compost teas are alike. Many DIY teas are inconsistent with ingredients and therefore results. This is because it’s difficult to know and understand what ingredients you are putting into your tea. Holganix Bio 800+ has a consistent ingredient list and is DNA fingerprinting to ensure product consistency.
Myth Number Four:
Holganix Bio 800+ is just a food source
Holganix Bio 800+ contains over 800 species of living microorganisms, not just food sources. Holganix Bio 800+ is focused on adding to your soil ecosystem and feeding the microorganisms that are present. BecauseHolganix Bio 800+ contains living microorganisms as opposed to food sources, Holganix users are all provided with refrigeration equipment to store the product. In essence, refrigeration is required to keep the products’ living microorganisms alive.
Myth Number Five:
You can’t use fungicides
While some fungicides are considered non-compatible with Holganix Bio 800+ because of their “kill all” approach to eliminating fungi, this isn’t the case with all products. After prolonged testing, we are confident that many fungicides are compatible with Holganix Bio 800+. Many of these fungicides can be used at reduced rates when utilized alongside Holganix Bio 800+.
