Frequently Asked Questions

  • WHY IS PLOTSTART™ BETTER THAN LIME?

    The goal of lime is to provide calcium into the soil which is not only a critical nutrient to plant growth, but more known for its effect in neutralizing pH. PlotStart™ provides instantly soluble and available calcium, making calcium readily available to plants, beginning the altering of pH of the soil right away, and “freeing” up bound calcium particles already in the soil. Traditional lime can take months if not years to apply its full effect, whereas as PlotStart™ works in a matter of weeks. Liquid lime is an alternative but must be added every growing season, PlotStart™ has been show to continue to contribute year after year.

    Ease of application is a huge advantage! Would you rather have to handle a 1-ton mound of white powder or pay the extra expense of having it spread? No way… just use one, 2.5 gallon of PlotStart™ in a pump, backpack, ATV/UTV, or tractor-mounted sprayer and get a better effect that also happens at least 3X faster!

  • DO I STILL NEED FERTILIZER IF I USE DEERGRO™?

    DeerGro™ is recommended to be used in addition to fertilizer, however, the products will free up a lot of nutrient that are bound in the soil and not currently available to plants. It will also make fertilizer use by plants more efficient, reducing the amount of fertilizer needed each year.

  • DO I NEED A SOIL TEST TO USE DEERGRO™?

    No! Regardless of the condition of your soil, DeerGro™ can only help. Whether it is needing added calcium to boost pH levels, or added biological components to improve nutrient uptake and plant growth, the DeerGro™ products will grow a better food plot just by applying the minimum recommended amount.

  • IS DEERGRO™ TOXIC TO HUMANS AND WILDLIFE?

    NO! Derived from organic materials, the DeerGro™ products are in essence “all natural” made here in the USA. None of the contents in the products would be considered toxic, though WE DO NOT recommend consuming them. Please keep out of reach of children and pets.

  • CAN I MIX DEERGRO™ WITH ROUNDUP® (GLYPHOSATE)?

    PlotBoost™ is specifically formulated to be mix with glyphosate (Roundup®) and other herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. This allows a “one pass” operation while treating soybeans, corn, alfalfa, wheat, etc. DO NOT mix glyphosate with PlotStart™ as it could create a negative reactive in the sprayer tank.

    DeerGro™ comes in easy to store, convenient-sized containers. PlotBoost™ can last up to 4 years, and PlotStart™ can last up to 2 years maintaining full-potency.

  • HOW LONG DOES PLOTSTART™ LAST IN THE SOIL?

    Unlike liquid lime, PlotStart™ has been shown to provide calcium in the soil for multiple growing seasons. Although calcium will be absorbed by plants over time, supplementing the soil with PlotStart™ will make sure the food plot reaches maximum potential each year.

  • CAN I GET DEERGRO™ IN BULK QUANTITIES?
