MetaGrow MFOOD is a wettable powder fertilizer designed as a food package to promote soil and canopy beneficial microbial growth. MFOOD is short for "microbial food." Guaranteed analysis is 0.5 - 0 - 3.0 with 4% calcium, 0.5% sulfur, and 0.4% iron. In addition to the guaranteed nutrient content, MFOOD contains a complex of organic and L-amino acids, surfactants, vitamins, enzymes, and over 30 different minerals.
MetaGrow MFOOD is unique in that it is designed to stimulate beneficial microbial growth by providing all of the food, nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, and elements that are required as building blocks for increased microbial metabolism and reproduction. Use MFOOD in combination with any microbial inoculant product for a multiplier effect of the benefits of the microbes in the material.
The food and nutrient sources in MetaGrow MFOOD are diverse which stimulates microbial population growth of a braod range of types of beneficial microbes. Because MFOOD greatly stimulates microbial activity, slow release organic fertilizers like compost, manures, fish meal, blood meal, and decaying cover crops can release nitrogen and other nutrients to the plant more rapidly and in forms that are more available for plant uptake. Speeding nutrient availability helps solve a significant problem for organic growers, as many times the types of fertilizers they can use take too long to become available to the plant for the peak nutrient requirement plant growth stages. As an example, chicken pellets applied at planting will not release the bulk of their nitrogen until after the peak period of N requirement in many vegetable crops unless there is a significant and active microbial population presentt in the soil to process it. Because MFOOD makes the fertilizer applied more efficient, it helps growers cut costs and increases yields significantly.
MetaGrow MFOOD does not use simple sugars, like molasses, to feed microbes as simple sugars promote the growth of undesirable microbes. None of the metagrow products use simple sugars, unlike many of our competitors products.
Use MFOOD with Metagrow Fresh, ST, B, F, SeaSet, and SB Soil (or other company microbial products) at a rate of 0.1-0.5lb per gallon of material. MFOOD clears a 100 mesh (149 micron) filter so it is compatible with most sprayers and irrigation systems (check clearance on subsurface drip before using).
