Ken Hamilton talks about bio-Release and Solu-plks

Bio-Release is a Biological that stimulates soil biology and works to release plant nutrients that are unavailable in the soil.  Combined with fertilizer, Bio-Release reduces nutrient fixation in the soil after application.  Bio-Release stimulates soil biology to speed up crop residue break down.

 3/4 to 1 gal per acre – spray on and lightly work to increase soil to residue contact


Organic Solu-PLKS

Organic Solu-PLKS is a concentrated organic based product formulated with naturally aminatedbacterial fermentation extracts.
Fractionated organic acids and natural derivatives. Organic Solu-PLKS is not a plant food product.
Organic Solu-PLKS is recommended for use on all soils and plants. Organic Solu-PLKS may enhance nutrient availability and microbial activity. Organic Solu-PLKS is designed for foliar application andfor injection through chemigation and sprinkler systems.

Sprinkler Irrigation: apply at the rate of 1 to 2 gallons per acre with irrigation water.
Foliar Application: Dissolve the recommended amount of Organic Solu-PLKS in at least 25 gallons water per acre.

Aerial Application: Dissolve the recommended amount of Organic Solu-PLKS in at least 8 gallons water per acre. Soil Mark-out Application: Organic Solu-PLKS is essential to complex macro and micronutrients applied early in season. Mix 0.5 to 1 gallon of Organic Solu-PLKS with organic plant food and apply in-furrow to maximize the nutrients availability.
Potatoes and Sugarbeets: Apply 1 to 2 gallons per acre
Grain crops: Apply at the rate of 0.5 to 1 gallon per acre
Greenhouse crops: Inject 1 to 2 gallons in drip irrigation system
Fruit trees: Apply at the rate of 0.5 to 1 gallon per acre
Alfalfa: Apply 1 to 2 quarts per acre after each cutting.


Bio-Mineral 75  Residue Digester

Bio-Mineral 75 Residue Digester is an aerobically brewed solution containing the required biology’s of bacteria, fungi, and protozoa along with multiple food sources and 75 plus soluble minerals to support the microbial groups in the proper processes of crop residue digestion. When applied to crop residue it provides biological residue digestion and the necessary minerals to stimulate and sustain their decomposition activity. The natural biology in the blend (such as bacteria, fungi and protozoa) rapidly breaks down crop residue and enhances the cycle of soil nutrients and humus.
Proper residue decomposition reduces soil pathogens by eliminating the crop residue materials where the pathogens over-winter. This process also returns valuable minerals and compounds held in the residue back into the soil where the organic matter, humus and minerals can add many beneficial properties to the soils structure, the biology health and future crops nutrient demands.
Natural blend of organic mineral ores, mineral ore solubilizer and a compost biological starter complex.
Bio-Mineral 75 Residue Digester is formulated by brewing a combination of mineral ore blends, compost biological starter complex and mineral ore solublizer in non-chlorinated water for twenty four (24) hours. The product is made available as a crop residue digester liquid blend or as a brew kit designated by the amount of product to be brewed.

application instructions

 A little bit about chelating.

In earth science, chemical weathering is attributed to organic chelating agents (e.g., peptides and sugars) that extract metal ions from minerals and rocks.  Most metal complexes in the environment and in nature are bound in some form of chelate ring (e.g., with a humic acid or a protein). Thus, metal chelates are relevant to the mobilization of metals in the soil, the uptake and the accumulation of metals into plants and microorganisms. Selective chelation of heavy metals is relevant to bioremediation. More from Wikipedia

Instructions For Residue Management Application

Apply at the rate of 15 to 20 gallons per acre with ½ gallon of Bio Release (or Solu-plks if organic) per acre after harvesting the crop. Crop residue must be sprayed and incorporated into the soil profile as soon as possible after application (within 24 hours) where the biology can function as decomposers to reduce the plant residue to simpler compounds and elements through the fall and winter and spring months. Residue left standing or remaining up in the air will not decompose; only that which is under the soil or has soil contact. Many of these microbial species are UV sensitive so leaving them exposed to sunlight over an extended period of time will kill them.


CatawaterAG is an enzyme microbial based catalyst that speeds up microbial activity in the soil. For heavy residue, catawater must be lightly worked in to assure contact with the soil.

3.2 oz/A – can be incorporated with liquid manure application or applied with NPF at 15 to 20 gal. / acre.
