More Info

PolyStart promotes early root growth and can be used in most seeded and transplanted crops. Early root development, in turn, will establish the plant in the field more quickly and encourage vigorous top growth. PolyStart is a highly effective fertilizer which not only works within the plant supplying valuable primary nutrients but also works as a soil amendment in stimulating mycorrhyzae or other soil bacteria which, in their symbiotic relationship with growing plants at the root level, contribute to the growth, well-being and productivity of those plants.


PolyStart when added to the spray tank water, will lower the water pH, and can be used in combination with pesticides. However, in unfamiliar mixtures use a “jar compatibility” test.
