BREAK THROUGH

Extra for Fruit Trees

A blend of Natural Minerals and Elements especially for Fruit Trees

 

Just what your Fruit Trees need to produce an abundance of Fruit. With the benefit of Neem Granules in the Blend to help ward off insect attack.

 

Now is the time to start getting those minerals and nutrients into the soils around your Fruit Trees. You need to apply Break Through Extra For fruit Trees out to the edge of the drip zone as many of the Trees feeder roots are out there.

 

Break Through extra contains dozens of Minerals by way of Blending all natural Ocean Solids, Rok Solids and Bio Phos along with Break Though, our Natural Slow Release Fertiliser. Ocean Solid also helps to reduce Curly Leaf.

Neem Granules make up the blend to assist in protecting your Fruit Trees from insect damage.

 

Use now or when you prune at 3 scoops (supplied) per square meter (200gms) and again just after the leaves form. With Break Through Extra you can’t ‘over do it’…

 

Follows is some information on the ingredients in the Blend.

 

“Break Through” is the first organic, granulated, slow release fertiliser available to the home gardener.
Most will be familiar with the advantages of slow release fertilisers over powder type fertilisers.
Powder type fertilisers are quick to release giving a boost to plants which only lasts for a short period and often much of the goodness is leached away, which means frequent applications are required for sustained growth. Where slow release fertilisers slowly break down over an extended period of time giving a continuous source of nutrients, with little waste through leaching.
Powder type fertilisers are chemical fertilisers and thus they have another disadvantage, in so much they are harmful to soil life and worms. Continual use has been proven to kill the soil making it very difficult to grow healthy plants. One can see the damage done to soil by market gardeners after a few years of cropping and the use of chemicals.
To date, the best natural nutrients have been supplied to our plants through composts and Garden Galore (sheep manure pellets), In fact it has been recognised that Garden Galore beats, hands-down, all the chemical fertilisers available to the home gardener. Garden Galore has an N:P:K of 4.0:1.4:3.0.
Break Through is derived from heat dried biosolids, manufactured from surplus micro-organisms.
It has been heat treated to over 500 degrees C. so it is completely free of pathogens and weed seed.
Break Through has an N:P:K 6.1 : 3.4 : 0.4, Plus 1.2 Calcium: 0.3 Magnesium : 0.8 Sulphur 0.8 Iron and Trace Elements.
The main commercial user of the product to date has been Green Keepers who love the product as it gives sturdy even growth to their grasses as well as excellent colour because of the iron content.
Being organic, Break Through will not harm soil life and can be used in all areas of the garden to advantage including container and pot plants. The product releases over a period of up to 12 months giving a sustained feeding program.
It would be also ideal to use in conjunction with Garden Galore in the garden as it will increase the amount of nitrogen available and thus faster growth. Break Through is low on potash thus without Garden Galore (for the extra potash) you would need to apply additional potash for flowering and fruiting plants. This can be done organically with fresh wood ash.
Break Through is New Zealand’s equivalent to America’s Leading organic fertiliser, “Milorganite.”
Use liberally around plants in gardens and containers. Broadcast over lawns and water to settle down the granules. Very cost effective when compared to the more expensive, chemical, slow release fertilisers.

Ocean Solids

The deep blue water of the ocean is rich in minerals and elements, in fact all the 92 elements known to man. These elements are also in perfect balance for living organisms, health and well being.
Back in the 60’s/70’s a Dr Maynard Murray did an incredible amount of research into ocean solids and wrote the book ‘Sea Energy Agriculture’ Nature’s Ideal Trace Element Blend for Farm, Livestock and Humans. It is currently published by Acres USA.
Maynard dissected hundreds of ocean creatures and never once found tumours or disorders in their organs. Doing the same to fish from streams and lakes, many were found to have tumours etc.
In one case he dissected a 100 year old whale and found its organs in pristine condition as good as a newly born whale. Maynard realised it was the ocean water, rich in minerals that allowed the creatures living in it to be so free of the ills that effected land creatures.
We know that at various times, all land masses were for periods of times, under the sea.
When a land mass rises from the sea it is mineral rich and once plant life establishes on the land it too is rich in minerals. But over time through rain, erosion and leaching a lot of the minerals gained by the land are lost back into the sea.
It is interesting to note that in isolated pockets on the planet, where because of the terrain, that leaching does not take place. People living in these pockets more often than not live to over 100 years of age, in excellent health. The reason, Maynard says, is because of the mineral rich diet they have, which allows the cells of the body to replicate perfectly, slowing right down the aging process and maintaining very healthy organs.
Maynard believed that if you give a plant all the possible minerals and elements it may need to grow as it should, then that plant would not be susceptible to diseases common to it.
Trials proved this point by supplying Ocean Solids to say nectarine trees in a row. Every second tree received the solids, the others being the controls. Then curly leaf disease was sprayed over all the trees.
After three years the controls had all died and the Ocean Solid trees never showed any signs of the disease. A number of similar trials were done on various plants with the same
Maynard found that vegetables etc were capable of taking up about 20 to 40 odd elements dependant on the type of plant.
On the other hand wheat and barley are capable of taking up all the 90 odd elements if available. This is why wheat grass juice has become a very important plant in our health/ food chain.
Two aspects of this have become very important in my concerns for plant health and people’s health.
If we use Ocean Solids in our gardens along with other natural plant foods, building up the soil life populations, including the worms, then we will have very healthy plants that will not suffer from diseases unless they become stressed for some reason, or reach the end of their days.
If we grow our own vegetables, fruit and wheat grass with Ocean Solids our health can greatly improve, markedly reducing the possibility of many ills such as cancer.
Think of it, healthy roses, plants and gardens along with better health for you and your family.

 

Rok Solids

Rockdust-Full Spectrum-Bio Certified Fertiliser
(Replaces Simalith Rockdust)

Rok Solid is designed to work in the soil, increasing the mineral content to the benefit of the health of the soil and plants growing there.
Used on food crops means your produce will have greater nutritional value and taste.
Rok Solid contains over 60 minerals and elements and is specially selected for its natural energy (paramagnetism), this energy is what gives the soil it’s vitality assisting in the nutrient uptake of plants.
The high silica content (43%) helps in plant formation.

Rok Solid is blended with Organic 100 liquid fertiliser concentrate made from fish and seaweed, which contributes a further array of minerals, together with microbial stimulates.
These organisms being necessary to hold soil balance, regulate nutrient to the plants, build humus and help detoxify the soil.

Alternatively about a level teaspoon into each planting hole for seedlings or a sprinkling along a row of seeds, with the seeds at planting time.
Larger plants about a level tablespoon in the planting hole.
For existing gardens with plants 100 grams per square metre twice a year (spring and Autumn) for fruit trees, shrubs, vegetable and flower gardens and lawns.
Roses an application of one to two teaspoons per rose spring and autumn.

Bio Phos

Phosphorus stimulates budding and blooming. Plants need phosphorus to produce fruits, flowers, and seeds. It also helps make your plants more resistant to disease. Phosphorus doesn’t dissolve like nitrogen. The soil will hang onto phosphorus, not releasing it into water.
Phosphate is needed by all life forms but if taken in too greater quantities it becomes harmful.
In the distant past phosphorus was obtain from manures especially bird or bat droppings called guano. Phosphorus was also obtained from Reactive Rock Phosphate which is a hard phosphatic rock. In most soils it dissolves very slowly.
To make the rock phosphate more readily available to plants man discovered a process of using sulfuric acid, early in the 1900’s and a new agricultural fertilizer was created called Super or Super Phosphate. It became a boon to agriculture and farming with tons of Super been spread to cause fast growth in fields and crops.
Unfortunately like a number of discoveries such as DDT and Asbestos, there was a hidden price to pay. Super phosphate kills soil life and with their demise leads to unhealthy plants.
Not only that, it was also found that Super laden plants and grasses caused health problems in stock including cancers.
I read a very interesting book recently called ‘Cancer, Cause and Cure’ written by an Australian farmer, Percy Weston.
Percy observed the results of the introduction of Super on his farm and the malays that occurred. The book made me reconsider the use of Super in garden fertilizers.
Now days I would never use a chemical fertiliser or chemical sprays including any herbicides anywhere on my property.
But I have noticed that even though I obtain good healthy crops and plants, there is some factor that appears to be missing and the crops are not as lush as I feel they could be. I have often thought that I am not getting sufficient phosphorus in my composts and mulches.
This caused me to do a bit of research on the Internet and found to my delight a company in New Zealand called Sieber Technologies Ltd who make a product called BioPhos. They take the rock phosphate and break it down naturally with micro organisms making it as readily available to plants as Super is.
The company sent me a email booklet and it showed trials that proved that not only did BioPhos work as well as Super, but actually better as it did not have a ‘peak’ growth on application and gave a much longer sustained release of phosphorus to plants. Instead of killing soil life it actually supplies new micro organisms to the soil which carry on breaking the natural phosphorus down, meaning that only one application is needed per year unless you are cropping during the winter as well.
Some rose growers and rose societies recommend using BioPhos for better, healthier roses.
BioPhos contains phosphate, potassium, sulphur and calcium at the rates of P10:K8:S7:Ca28. BioPhos is Bio Certified for organic growing.
It is pH neutral and used at the following rates; new beds work in 100 grams per square metre, the same with lawns but water in to settle.
Side dressing plants; seedlings 8 grams (a teaspoon full) around base of the plant or in the planting hole. Same for potatoes (which do well with phosphorus) Sowing beans peas etc sprinkle down row with seeds. Roses and similar sized plants 18 grams or a tablespoon full around plant or in planting hole.
Established fruit trees etc, spread at the rate of 100 grams per square metre around drip line or where feeder roots are. Apply to vegetable gardens in spring and a further application in autumn if growing winter crops. Can be applied to container plants also. Apply to tomatoes when planting or side dress existing plants.
When you obtain your BioPhos you will notice it consists of fine powder to granules with pellets of sulphur and odd splinters of wood. These including the wood are all part of the product not messy packaging. The lumps of granules actually contain 4,888,000 fungal colonies to aid the breakdown and enhance your garden soils.
Manufacturers of Super create a incredible pollution problem for the environment see
If you have concerns about your health, the health of your family and you want to avoid illnesses such as cancer if possible, then grow as much fruit and vegetables as you can without chemicals.

 

Neem

Many gardeners have been enjoying the results of Neem Tree Oil, and Neem 50WP in their gardening.
Being organic, Neem has made spraying safer while taking care of most insect pests and a few diseases as well. Every few weeks’ further reports from gardeners roll in tolling its virtues.
Roses that have been sprayed with Neem Tree Oil and other safe products such as Perkfection and Mycorrcin have never looked better with healthy foliage and lovely blooms.
My best report came from a lady who looks after 400 roses at a winery in the Marlborough Region and she told me that she had been using the Neem and the other products mentioned since the roses started sprouting in the spring.
Visitors to the Winery are amazed at how healthy the roses are looking and all the staff at winery have had to be told the reason, so it can be passed on to all the inquiries the roses cause.
Now the Neem products called Neem Tree Granules.

The granules are the crushed kernels of the Neem tree. They contain the Neem properties that make the insecticide control.
Used to make plants healthier and reduce the instance of soil insects such as root mealy bugs, root nematodes, grass grubs, carrot flies etc.
As the granules break down the Neem properties are taken up through the roots of plants and will help to keep the plants healthier and pest free, through the trans-location action.
This can be used to advantage on tall trees, such as Cabbage Trees and bushes where spraying is difficult.
It is a first line of defense against foliage attacking insects. Sprinkle the products in the area between truck and drip line.
For use in container plants just sprinkle a table spoon (or more dependent on the size of the container) of either product into the pot at potting up time or place the same on top of the mix.
Very economical the recommend amount is 50 grams to 50 litres of potting mix.
Cover granules with some potting mix as they go moldy as they break down making the container to look a bit unsightly.
In the potting mix it should be effective for several months, (estimated up to about 4-6 months) slowly releasing the Neem properties.
Likewise the products can be used in soil to assist the control of soil insects at the rate of 50-100 grams per square metre.
I would suggest that the soil-life period to be shorter than in potting mix as the soil micro-organisms will break the product down faster.
(Estimated about 1-3 months)
When planting or sowing seeds, you can work the granules into the top 10cm of soil and likewise around plants with problems or ones you wish to protect.

 

Fruit & Flower Blend

Plants like us, if they do not get sufficient minerals in their diet; they will be adversely affected and poorly.
Potassium deficiency will show as soft limp plant growth, poor flowering, taste decline in fruit, and general loss of vigor.
I am often asked what is wrong with plants which, don’t seem as good as they could be, even though they are fed well and watered right.
Often the reason is insufficient Potassium.
Then there is fruit, especially citrus which are lacking in juice and flavour.
Tomatoes and cucumbers that don’t have that home grown flavour that one would hope to have.
Plants that have poor flowering or don’t flower at all. Once again the problem can be insufficient Potassium.
Magnesium is involved in chlorophyll production, which converts sunlight into sugars and is involved in activating enzymes. Because of its role in chlorophyll, the first symptoms of magnesium deficiency show up as yellowing, usually between the veins of the older leaves. In severe deficiencies, the entire leaf will turn yellow or red and then brown, with symptoms progressing up the plant.
There are numerous plants that show this tendency, citrus, daphne, rhododendrons, tomatoes, passion fruit, roses to name a few.
Once the yellowing starts to appear then already the plant is having problems and even when magnesium is supplied, it takes several weeks before the lovely dark green colour is restored.
During this time the plant is weakened, as the chlorophyll is not working to its full potential which makes the plant more susceptible to diseases and pests.
During drought conditions, plants suffer and one important aspect to assist in this is Potassium.
It regulates water absorption and retention, influences the uptake of some nutrients and helps to increase disease resistance.
As the weather cools and winter approaches, plants feel the chill like we do, but plants cant put on a jersey like we can. Plant’s protection from chills and frosts comes from having adequate Potassium in their diet.
Thus us gardening commentators always suggest to gardeners to supply potash to their plants as winter starts to approach and to avoid too much nitrogen.
Commercial growers of plants and orchardists have a commercial product that they use to ensure their plants have sufficient Potassium and magnesium in their diet.
These two vital elements are blended together in the right balance as required for plants.
It comes nicely packaged in a plastic jar with a 50 gram (50ml) scoop. The jar contains 1250 grams of potassium and magnesium in the right balance.
It is used at the rate of 50 grams (one scoop, just below level full) per square metre around the base of the plant or around the drip line.
(Whichever is applicable) to start with, for any plant that is flowering, fruiting, showing lack of vigor or yellowing in foliage.
Now this next bit might surprise many; but the monthly requirement is 25 grams (half scoop) per square metre. This should be applied while plants are flowering, fruiting, during dry times and going into winter. Outside of these times a 2-3 monthly dose should be fine.
For fruiting a dose at 50 grams should be applied prior to flowering followed by the 25 grams till harvest. For the likes of tomatoes and cucumbers, apply over fruiting period for best flavour.
