WHY USE DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX?

#1 SALT FREE; almost all other plant fertilizers, synthetic and organic, contain salts. Excess salts burn the leaves of plants, create hot spots in turf, sequester water and nutrients away from plants and turf and kill beneficial bacterium that is essential for nutrient uptake.

#2 Because Dr. BENSON'S does not contain salts, it can and should be used during hot weather, on stressed and sick plants, at initial planting and BEYOND!

#3 CONTAINS ALL 17 of the essential elements that modern science has proven to be needed for optimal plant growth.

#4 SOIL CONDITIONER; not only does it make the nutrients available to the plants, it conditions the soil to create a better growing environment.


#5 COST EFFICIENT;
because the beneficial bacterium in Dr. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX continues to grow and multiply in the soil, less fertilizer is needed as time passes. In residential tests, after 1-2 years of monthly applications, only 4 annual applications are need
ed to maintain plant health and vigor.


APPLICATION METHODS


#1 FOLIAGE SPRAY; 17 elements and beneficial bacterium are absorbed immediately through the foliage and stems of plant materials and turf.

#2 ROOT DRENCHING,
from the top to the bottom. 90 plus percent of a plants' feeder roots hang out at the top 4-16 inches of surface area. ROOT DRENCHING passes directly through these feeder roots, unlike deep root feeding where the feeder probe (rod), is commonly pressed down TO DEEP BYPASSING the feeder roots.

#3 COMPATIBLE  FOR AUTOMATIC FERTILIZER INJECTORS, RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL. CLEAN FORMULA will not plug up injector tanks or injector tubes or irrigation emission outputs.



By 1984 modern science identified 17 elements that are essential for optimal plant growth and overall plant health. CARBON, HYDROGEN, OXYGEN, NITROGEN AND SULFUR are the major constituents of organic substances and bond with each other to form amino acids, enzymes, chlorophyll and other compounds. PHOSPHORUS AND BORON are responsible for energy transfer reactions, carbohydrate movement and are components of RNA and DNA. POTASSIUM, MAGNESIUM, CALCIUM AND CHLORINE are components of organic compounds and maintain ionic balance. COPPER, IRON, MANGANESE, MOLYBDENUM, ZINC AND NICKEL enable electron transport and are catalysts for enzymes. All 17 of these essential elements work together and with each other in varying capacities and should not be considered as separate components to be used individually to treat various deficiencies. REGULAR MAINTENANCE is always more effective
than curative measures!

We at DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX believe that the greatest gardener in the world is MOTHER NATURE HERSELF. So we have looked to HER example of ho
w she feeds her gardens to develop a fertilizer that emulates the natural nutrient cycle that mother nature created to feed her jungles, forests and prairies.

DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX is not a synthetic or manure based product. It contains all 17 of the essential elements derived from naturally occurring sources, many of which are food grade and plant based (COLD WATER ATLANTIC OCEAN KELP), combined with a natural formula that takes a holistic approach to plant nutrition.

DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX
does not contain salts. Salts in the soil lock up valuable nutrients, inhibit the plants' abilities to take in nutrients and water and kill many of the beneficial bacterium that are needed for nutrient exchanges and transfers.

DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX puts the 17 essential elements and beneficial bacterium into the soil in a form that allows the plant to utilize what it needs, when it needs it, without creating an imbalance or forcing unnatural growth at the wrong time of the year, similar to a RAIN FOREST CYCLE. SOIL IS A DYNAMIC biological system, it is every bit as alive as the plants that you intend to grow in it. Soil needs favorable bacterium in order to move the nutrients that are contained in colloids in the soil into the plants' root systems.

                               NATURAL vs. SYNTHETIC

Chemical fertilizers are convenient. They work fast and are relatively cheap, but the side effects of these products can create rather undesirable complications. Natural pr
oducts are safe to use and good for the environment, but require a new approach. Natural products may need to be used more often initially to clear up the problems that have been caused by using synthetic chemicals, but after a period of time they may be used less often. Natural products tend to stay in the soil to condition it and create a better growing environment for our plants. A healthy garden can fight off disease and pests much better, resulting in less use of pesticides and fungicides with far less damage to our environment.

Over use of synthetically derived fertilizers containing large amounts of Nitrates, Phosphates, Sulfates and Chlorides (SALTS), during the early spring or any season, can cause hot spots in turf areas and foliage burns on plant materials.

This salt build up actually sucks the water away from plants and turf and can be very detrimental when temperatures go over 95 degrees!

After a few years, depending on the organic content of the soil, Dr. Benson's may be applied as little as two or three times annually to maintain a healthy garden!

Dr. Benson's is a clean liquid that can be used at any temperature with no worry of burning plants or turf. Dr. Benson's will not stain walkways or driveways!


                               NATURAL vs. ORGANIC

The organic fertilizer movement may be a step in the right direction, but there are some problems that need to be recognized. Animal droppings and/or other animal waste by-products are commonly used in, "Organic Fertilizers". Rather high concentrations of salts and dangerous bacterium can run with animal droppings and/or other animal waste by-products. Proper composting needs to be performed in order to minimize the transfer of dangerous bacterium.

Heavy metals have a tendency to run with some "Organic Substances". Lead, Cadminium, Lithium, Arsenic and Mercury, to name just a few, can be very detrimental when encountered. Even though these metals are, "organically occurring", and are found on the periodic table, they need to be avoided especially within th
e food supply. Remember, what is put on your garden, can eventually windup in your stomach!

This is why, WE AT DR. BENSON'S NATURAL MIX, isolate the 17 elements that modern science has thus far concluded are necessary for healthy plant growth! Additional elements have not been scientifically proven to benefit healthy plant growth and in most circumstances should be avoided!


A NATURAL PRODUCT IS ONE THAT HAS A FAVORABLE REACTION TO OUR ENVIRONMENT!!
