Hydro-Gardens does not recommend using
the same fertilizer solution for Heirloom
Varieties with Dutch varieties like
Big Dean and Trust. Too high of a nitrogen level will adversely affect their production.


Examples:

1/2 tsp Calcium Nitrate 1 gallon
1/4 tsp Magnesium Sulfate
Quantity of Fertilizer
1/2 lb. Chem-Gro Quantity of Water
1/2 lb. Calcium Nitrate 100 gallons
1/4 lb. Magnesium Sulfate
Quantity of Fertilizer
5 lb. Chem-Gro Quantity of Water
5 lb. Calcium Nitrate 1000 gallons
2.5 lb. Magnesium Sulfate

 The best growing temperatures for tomatoes should be measured at the FLOWERING LEVEL of the crop. This means that you will have to adjust your temperature sensing equipment as the plants grow, We recommend the following temperatures:

Germination
Seedlings
Mature Plants

DAY
78oF
78oF
78oF

NIGHT
78oF
62oF
64oF

 NOTE:
     If the calcium level of your source water is below 50 PPM, you should add 1 ounce of Calcium Chloride, (or 25% of the weight of Calcium Nitrate that you are adding) per 100 gallons of working solution, in with the calcium nitrate until you have increased your calcium levels to full strength. This will supplement the calcium levels in your working solution without increasing the amount of nitrogen to your seedling plants.

 Adjustments may be necessary to correct minor elements on mature plants. Analysis of plant tissue and nutrient solution should be made on a monthly basis to determine the requirements of the plants through the changing seasons of the year. It is very difficult to diagnose a nutritional problem without lab reports.
The nutrient requirements of plants change with the seasons of the year and with available light conditions. Rapid response to these changes will enable you to keep your production at optimum levels.

 

The formulation of 4-18-38 has been developed from Hydro-Gardens’ years of experience with hundreds of growers across the country. It has been used on thousands of tomato crops in every type growing system and with every type media available. This fertilizer has a very low salt index. This means you get more usable fertilizer for your money, and healthier plants that have higher yields. If you don’t see the Chem-Gro trademark, you may be getting an inferior substitute.
