    Liquid Fish 2-5-0.2

    Request a quote onLiquid-Fish-2-5-0.2Liquid Fish 2-5-0.2 is fresh water fish. It's made by grinding the fish scraps, including the head, the guts, and everything else in there. They then acidify it with some phosphoric acid. The enzymes from the fish guts are what digest and break down this fish. They let it sit for a couple of months while it's digesting and breaking down. So the real nice thing about this fish is that it yields a good level of calcium and phosphorus and a lot of colloidal trace minerals coming right out of the bone. It's an excellent fish for the calcium and the phosphorus. There's about a 1% calcium content and about half the phosphorus in the analysis (a total of 5) is derived from the breakdown of bones, the other half is from the addition of the phosphoric acid.

    We find this to be a very good fish to be used for soils that are short on soluble or available phosphates. This can be a very quick and immediate boost. It really can push the energy of the soil up. This fish could also be used as a foliar spray because of the phosphoric acid. And in foliar spraying we would probably put about 2 quarts up to a gallon per acre.

    Typical rates for very low phosphorus organic soils would be somewhere around 30-50 gallons an acre. That'll give a very nicel level of available phosphorus for the growing season. It will also supply acidity because this product has a pH of about 3.5. It provides acidity to breakdown and acidify the limestone and soft rock phosphate that could very well be included with this fish as part of the program. This is a soluble portion that helps to make the soft rock phosphate more available. So they work together.

    We use this fish primarily in organics on low phosphate soil. And we would use a 5-1-1 fish more frequently in organics on a nitrogen-loving crop like corn. And a lot of times we'll use the 2-5-0.2 liquid fish on the organic soils in things like beans or pasture production where you need to get your phosphates up. That's primarily where we're using this fish.

    It comes in bulk semi loads, about 5,000 gallons (or a little over) per bulk tanker. Or it could be purchased in smaller quantities in totes or semi loads of totes. The best pricing is definitely going to come by full semi loads, whether in totes or in tanker.

    Liquid Fish 5-1-1

    Request Quote Liquid Fish 5-1-1 Liquid Fish 5-1-1 is excellent ocean fish that's high in nitrogen and full of trace minerals. The fish is first used for oil, so the oil is taken out of the fish but the rest of the meat and the body of the fish is then ground up and made into an emulsion. So there's a lot more protein in this fish coming from the meat than most other liquid fish that are scraps with the filet taken out.

    This is not an edible fish really, it's harvested mainly for the oil. The oil is used for human consumption and various other aspects because it's high in omega-3 oil. But what's left over is a very good fertilizer for organic production or for small-scale market gardens. The primary use we're looking at is as a high nitrogen source for organics.

    This is especially important when raising corn where we need a good nitrogen source. The nice part about this fish is the nitrogen is in the source of amino acids or proteins that are very stable. So the nitrogen in this product, unlike commercial nitrogen in fertilizers, will stick around and supply the plant throughout the whole season.

    Typical rates would be anywhere from 30 to 50 gallons (sometimes 60 gallons) per acre, depending on yield goals for corn. Small grains would take less. Wheat would be close to the corn range. Many times this would work as a complete stand alone product for corn. If you just put 60 gallons out you'll probably get a corn crop. Not ideal, but it can be very useful of a product.

    The sulfates in this liquid fish 5-1-1 help to acidify high pH soils. A lot of times soils are pushing up that 7-8 pH. Sulfates help to release that and work against the calcium, dropping the pH a little, so it's good for energy release working against the calcium.

    Liquid Fish 5-1-1 is delivered in semiload tanker lots and would need about 5,000 gallons of tank storage if we were to quote it delivered.
