We have been using Agriserve Pest Control for over a decade. We live on five acres in the high desert of California. As we have gotten older we found that Agriserve was a better solution for abating excessive wild foliage that is a fire hazard. Our recent CalFire inspection was rated as needing no further action. In other words, one spraying of the Agriserve Pre-Emergent Weed Control and we are set without having to clear our land by hand. Highly recommended to those looking for a better way to protect their property. The sprayer is professional and personable. Jennifer is tops in handling our calls and setting us up each year with our annual spraying.
There are 5 essential components to tree nutrition:Nitrogen - this is the most lacking component in urban soils and also the most needed component.
Phosphorous - this component is needed for photosynthesis and energy transfer.
Potassium - this component is needed for protein synthesis, photosynthesis, and in the formation of carbohydrates. It will also increase a tree's resistance to frost and increase water absorption.
Copper, Iron, Manganese, and Zinc - This mix of elements affects the enzyme system. It is also essential for growth processes, energy transfers, and assimilation.
Humates - this component includes organic decomposed plant and microbe material. This component adds and helps stimulate organic activity in the soil. It also increases water-holding capacity and increases the tree's uptake of both nutrients present in the soil and nutrients being applied. When the above 5 components are combined and applied at an appropriate rate, your tree will be fertilized, aerated, and deep root watered. A fertilization program that includes the above 5 components is a preventative measure taken to ensure the health of your trees. Trees that enjoy good nutrient health will resist disease, insect infestations, and extreme weather conditions better than those that are deficient in nutrients.
