Indian River Organics® Liquid Fish Fertilizer
Our Liquid Fish Fertilizer for plants is a hydrolysate, which is far superior in several ways to any emulsion that is available on the market. It is all natural and 100 percent fish, not a boiled, rendered and separated semi-fish based product like the others.
Our product can be mixed at the rates below in a watering can and applied as a soil drench, or it can be applied as a foliar spray. For best results, the spray applications should be done in the early morning or late in the day. Once mixed with water, the product is activated and should be used completely. For optimal results adjust application rates and frequency as needed. Do not store product diluted.
Lawn: Mix 2-4 ounces in 1 gallon of water; spray to cover 500 square feet.

General Application Rates
As all growers are aware, optimal application rates often vary substantially from crop to crop as well as from farm to farm, depending on a large number of things. Accordingly, we provide the following rates just to give a framework and encourage you to email us or call for specific application rates, depending on your particular crop and location.
How Often and When to Apply
For vegetable and row crops we recommend you apply 3 gallons per acre 4 times a year.
First Application: At planting, the product can be applied to soil, in-furrow, and/or sprayed/broadcast.
Second Application: Foliar spray when first primary leaves come out and/or when plants are 8 to 10 inches tall.
Third Application: Pre-blossom or pre- tassel.
Fourth Application: Pre-harvest
Note: Each gallon of fish should be mixed with at least 10 gallons of water. Many crops see tremendous benefits when mixed at 30:1, 50:1 and even 100:1.
Because our fertilizer includes absolutely all of the beneficial oils, Indian River Organics® Liquid Fish Fertilizer is a remarkable “sticking agent.” Whenever you are making a field spray, consider adding some fish to your mix. The fish will provide a number of benefits to each application, including more efficient delivery to the plant via the leaves and extended time remaining in the root zone of the soil. Many inputs are more efficiently delivered when mixed with fish, and could allow you to cut your application rates. Indian River Organics Liquid Fish Fertilizer makes an excellent adjuvant or input sticking agent. It helps to deliver your inputs more efficiently and potentially lowers your overall costs.
Remember: It is better to fertilize more often with less, than less often with more. If running through drip tape, we suggest using 1 ounce per gallon of water once a week. Remember to flush lines with clean water when done.
