Blackstrap Molasses

R76 - R1 511
INFORMATION

Description

Molasses is rich in both micro- and macro- nutrients and is a great source of carbohydrates for soil microbes. This subsequently boosts the structure and moisture retention of the medium and encourages growth of beneficial organisms.

Our Food-Grade 100% blackstrap molasses has been carefully sourced to ensure it is un-sulphured and suitable for horticultural applications.

 

Benefits

  • Reduces damage caused by root parasites during the process of decomposition.
  • Stimulates quick microbial decay of residual organic matter.
  • Increases fruit and flower yields.
  • Reduces plant stress by applying phytochelates to foliage.
  • Can also be used as natural insecticide when applied as a foliar spray. Insects cannot digest sugars so the molasses water mixture will act as an organic insecticide.
  • Blackstrap is the richest Molasses available (1 L = 1.4 kg)
  • Our molasses is Food-Grade and goes through regular rigorous tests.

 

How to use

Soil feeding:

  • Mix 1/2 teaspoon of molasses (2.5ml) in the vegetative/growth stage and 2 teaspoons of molasses (10ml) in flowering/fruiting stage per L of water - apply every 1-2 weeks.

Foliar feeding:

  • Mix 1 teaspoon (5ml) of molasses per L of water and spray on the canopy during vegetative growth.

1L (approx. 1.4kg)

 

Helpful tips: 

Range of dosage depends on other nutrients being fed. Dosage for flowering may vary between 1-4 teaspoons (5-20ml) of molasses.

Molasses during vegetative phase is not as essential as it is during the flowering phase, therefore we recommend you use less of it during the vegetative phase.

Mix molasses with a small amount of luke-warm water before adding the rest of the water to ensure even dilution.
