How to Use PlotStart™


2.5 Gallons of PlotStart™ = 1 Ton of Lime Per Acre. If your soil pH is 4.5-5.5 use 5 gallons of PlotStart™ per acre (equivalent to 2 tons of lime per acre). Use a max of 2 jugs (5 gallons PlotStart™per acre) if the soil is acidic (4.5-5 pH) or spray 5 gallons of PlotStart™ per acre in the spring, then again in the fall for the fall planting totaling 10 gallons per acre over the course of 12 months.


PlotStart™ must be mixed with water to evenly distribute it over the intended acreage. For most applications, 10-15 gallons of water is needed to apply PlotStart™ over a single acre. PlotStart™ is NOT applied in an oz/gallon of water ratio like herbicides, rather it is a per acre application. Simply mix enough water to evenly distribute the 2.5 gallons or 5 gallons (depending on pH) over the correct amount of acreage. PlotStart can be. Mixed directly with nitrogen solutions, and soil-applied herbicides. PlotStart™ CANNOT BE APPLIED WITH ROUND-UP® or GLYPHOSATE.

EXAMPLE: If you have a 25 gallon ATV sprayer, you will likely be able to evenly spray 2 acres. Fill the tank with 2.5 gallons per acre of PlotStart™ for soils 5.5 -7 in pH, or 5 gallons per acre for soils more acidic than 5.5. for a 2-acre food plot with a soil pH of 6.0, you would fill the tank with 2 x 2.5-gallon jugs (2.5 gallons per acre) then fill the rest of the tank up with water.


Once you have evenly distributed the correct amount of PlotStart™ per acre you are done! The effective formula of PlotStart™ will do the rest. It is suggested to follow up with PlotBoost™ after the food plot reaches full ground coverage (3-5 weeks) or when directly in the tank with your first round of post-emergent herbicide.
