ExploGrow™ General application guidelines:

For optimal results contact us.

  • The standard application rate is 4-8 liters/ha. Dilute in sufficient water to apply the 4-8 liters to 1/ha etc.
  • If already using N-P-K products: applications rates for N-P-K can be reduced down to 50% (or even lower in several cases) when using ExploGrow™. In any event, we recommend that you discuss your fertiliser program with an ExploGrow™ field agent and your agronomist.
  • If Soil Organic Matter (OM) is low (i.e. heavy sand or heavy clay soils) increase the initial application rate by 5 liter/ha for all applications.
  • Avoid extreme temperatures. Store at 5-27 °C.
  • Always properly calibrate your sprayer prior to application to assure recommended application rate per ha is achieved.
  • Apply in late afternoon or at sundown to ensure optimal absorption.
  • For second application: Foliar application is suggested.


ExploGrow™ can be co-applied with your irrigation water through a metered irrigation system. Product can also be co-applied with liquid N-P-K. DO NOT Co-apply ExploGrow™ with fungicides, fumigants or pesticides. Before co-applying with herbicides and all other co-applications, please enquire with an ExploGrow™ consultant.


  • The product should be gently agitated prior to application. In smaller containers, simply shake the container prior to loading into sprayer.
  • With bulk barrels and totes, agitate prior to transferring to sprayer (can use air wand or paddle agitator)
