K: 352 ppm

Mg: 50 ppm

P: 50 ppm

Ca: 180 ppm

S: 168 ppm

 

Salt                            gms/100Litre of water.

Calcium Nitrate            80.6
    
Potassium Nitrate        10.4
    
Mono Pottasium Phosphate    22.1
    
Potassium Sulphate        59.8
    
Magnesium Sulphate        49.4

Enjoy!

Hi,

 

The easiest method would be to buy a trace element mix like TRACEL from Rallis. Though Tracel has Iron it is not in Chelated form so you would have to buy Chelated Fe to avoid risk of Chlorosis.

 

I will be putting my NS receipes later today that also includes the trace elements.

 

Thanks,

Srikanth

Thanks, Srikanth

Hello Madhavi,

Yes I still use that formula although with some modifications based on plant behavior. The trace elements is same as the website.

Basically, I reduce the EC if I see too bullish plant and increase if I see spindly one. Also depends on the plant fruit load.

Guys,

Please respond . I know you guys are knowledgable and we are beginers who find it very tough to understand the nutrition needs of plants.

I dont think its a very good idea to buy readymade fertilizers like Organic boon , please comment.

 

I started with these plants

1. Okra 5 seedlings

2. Tomato 20 seedlings ( I will be using only  5 )

3. French Marigold ( used all 60+ seeds my bad ) . All germinated now i dont have space 

 

I used cocopeat for germination and now without nutrients the plants are dying.

Loganth,

For seedlings you can use 1gm of 19-19-19 in a litre of water and water the plants. As the plants grow we can increase the grams/liter.

hope this helps.

regarding the nutrients there is another forum thread that has all the info you are looking for.i will look it up.

I don't get it, what if N is provided more, however we provide the nutrients plants takes only what it wants.
It doesn't make sense.
