I know I am late to the party, but I am looking into water soluble fertilizer to fertigate through my driptape system.

I would like to start up a poll.
I am including among the choices only companies that include micronutrients along with their NPK.
If you are convinced of either good or bad opinion regarding one of the company’s products, please comment.

1. Miller Chemical Fertilizer

2. RAW

3. Plant Marvel

4. Jack’s (Peters Professional)

5. None of the above. Please provide the company/product you utilize for either a driptape or overhead sprinkler system.

Thank you very much in advance!

Stoller urea mate is a popular one, 5-10-27 plus about every micro. Very water soluble.

Miracle grow has worked best for me. In my experience it always helps em and never hurts em. However the nitrogen is high. The ratios in Stollers look better for growing a pumpkin than any of the miracle grow product line.

I use MegaCrop. Designed to be a full nutrient for hydroponic MJ nutrients. Dissolves fully in water and has everything a plant could need. I foliar feed with it at 200-250 ppm along with the drip irrigation.

I used Jack's tomato feed in the past with good results, but switched to ureamate. Works out to better price per pound, and higher micro levels than the Jacks

Well, ureamate must work, Because since coming on the big pumpkins scene, Hobbit has been bending the scales and growing massive fruit.

I’m sure it’s only part of your fertilizer program Kent, but keep up the great results and Heavy Hitter is what people will think when they look at your diary.

Figures, we can’t get Ureamate in Canada. Will have to contact my shipping agent and get an order processed that I can pick up in Washington State.

Glenn it's made by stoller, see if there is a cooperative or ag retailer that carries it up there. I would think someone would as they have a large nutritional products portfolio.

Thanks BReeb and super thanks spudder. I appreciate the help, there doesn’t seem to be a dealer or rep in British Columbia, but maybe they can help me out anyways. Will save me a trip to Washington State. Thanks again to both of you!!
