The Sustainable Solution

At Ecothrive, we are often asked "what's the best mineral fertilisers to use with your coco coir mixes?". We now have an answer; Beanstalk CRF is arguably the most environmentally sound option for complete mineral fertility, while producing high yielding crops with minimal fuss.

While Beanstalk's CRF technology is not organic it does eliminate many environmental issues associated with conventional mineral fertilisers. The advanced polymer coating effectively controls nutrient release and prevents the fertiliser rapidly dissolving in the growing medium, reducing leaching and waterway pollution.

When growing with Beanstalk CRF, minimal run-off is required. When using liquid nutrients, growers typically aim for 10-20% run-off at each watering event, with Beanstalk you can cut this down to 5-10% run-off once a week! Using Beanstalk ensures efficient water usage and stops your fertiliser (and money) going down the drain.

One dose of Beanstalk Ag Controlled-Release Fertilizer (CRF) automatically and intelligently matches the nutrient requirements of your plants throughout their growing cycle.

No bottles. No powders. No mixing reservoirs. Simply blend the CRF into the growing medium when transplanting. Improve your efficiency, cut costs, simplify your grow and boost yields today!

What does V-Basis do?

Applied at a rate of 6.25 grams per litre of growing media, V-Basis is a robust solution for all nursery production and perfect for rooted seedlings, rooted cuttings, and mother plants.

This is a stand-alone product for all vegetative demands and can be continually sub-dressed every 70 days.

It is recommended to use Beanstalk Ag’s Absolute Flower, CA-Fortify and K-Boost when you are transplanting into a final pot intended for flowering.

Simply mix into your growing medium when potting up and Beanstalk’s controlled release fertiliser will provide your crop with all the necessary minerals, micro and macronutrients that they need for maximum growth and yield.

With the Beanstalk program you can use growth stimulants, beneficial biological inoculants, and other additives such as silica. Just avoid using nutritional products.

How to Use

To get the best from Beanstalk CRF products just follow these simple steps:

  1. Fill the pot 2/3 or 3/4 with your chosen growing media, coco or potting soil.
  2. Add the relevant dose of Beanstalk products.
  3. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Pot up the plant, then top up the remaining 1/3 or 1/4 with coco or soil.
  5. Irrigate with water and, optionally, your preferred silica and non-NPK additives.

Ecothrive coco mixes are all pre-fertilised with a light dose of Charge. This provides enough nutrition to last until the CRF starts releasing, which takes approximately 7 days after the first irrigation. For best results, use Biosys on your first watering and repeat every 1-2 weeks.
