Getting Started


Getting Started

Adopting and applying the ACGT Growth Management Program, either on the farm or around the home, is both safe and easy and requires no specialist skills or equipment.

The products are easy to handle and come in their own individual containers for safe and mess free storage.

Turf Producers

When committing a new paddock to the program simply broadcast “Guzunder” on to the new paddock at a minimum rate of 1T per hectare (Some soils may require more, especially lighter soils) then work the product into the profile prior to thatching and levelling.

Once the preparation work has been completed on the paddock apply a one-off application of “Root Booster” with added VAM at a rate of 5Ltrs per Hectare mixed with water at minimum ratio of 100:1 within 5 days.

When applying through a Pivot system simply infuse the product at 5Ltrs per hectare with your normal water rate application.

“Root Booster” with added VAM is also recommended as a treatment within 5 days of on-farm harvesting or as a once per year treatment in spring to assist with new growth.

7 days after the “Root Booster” treatment, apply the initial treatment of “Guzover” at a rate of 5Ltrs per Hectare mixed with water at minimum ratio of 100:1, once again if applying through a Pivot system simply infuse the product at 5Ltrs per hectare with your normal water rate application.

Repeat the “Guzover” treatment again 14 days later then a further 14 days after that – ie: 3 times in 28 days then allow the paddock to stand for 28 days before planning your next application – after that simply apply “Guzover” on an as-needs basis.

A new Lawn at home

Apply a liberal amount of “Guzunder” (10kg per 100sqm) to the entire soil area where the new turf is to be layed as the final part of your ground preparation process.

A good bedding of top quality soil is always an essential element in ensuring that your new lawn both lays easily and establishes quickly so for best results we recommend you consider using “Green Earth” as a part of your preparation.

Once the new turf has been layed, immediately apply a one-off treatment of “Root Booster” with added VAM to the entire area using the 2Ltr application bottle by placing 100ml of raw product into the applicator and filling it to the top with water.

Once connected to the watering hose this will cover approximately 100sqm of new turf.

7 days after the “Root Booster” treatment, apply the initial treatment of “Guzover” at a rate of 100ml per 100sqm mixed with water at minimum ratio of 100:1, once again if applying through the applicator simply place 100ml of raw product into the applicator and fill it to the top with water.

Repeat the “Guzover” treatment again 14 days later then a further 14 days after that - ie: 3 times in 28 days then allow the lawn to stand for 28 days before planning your next application – after that simply apply “Guzover” on an as-needs basis.

To keep your lawn looking healthy all year round it is recommended that the area be treated with “Guzover” at least 4 times per year.

New or Existing Garden Beds or Pot Plants

Treating new or existing garden beds or pot plants is as simple as mix and spray.

NewSimply mix “Guzunder” into the soil or potting mix profile at a rate of 100gm per sqm of garden bed (approximate) either with the existing soil or before putting the new soil into the bed.

Once this has taken place and you have planted your new plantings apply a one-off treatment of “Root Booster” with added VAM as soon as possible to provide the new plant with relief during the stressful process of transplanting.

Apply the product as a ground spray rather than a foliar spray as it is designed purely to assist in the development of the root system.

“Root Booster” with added VAM is also recommended as a treatment within 5 days of on-farm harvesting or as a once per year treatment in spring to assist with new growth.

7 days after the “Root Booster” treatment, apply the first treatment of “Guzover” at a rate of 100ml per 100sqm mixed with water at minimum ratio of 100:1, once again if applying through the applicator simply place 100ml of raw product into the applicator and fill it to the top with water. This process can also be undertaken using a standard 9L watering can using 90ml of raw product with the can filled to the top with water.

Please Note – In as much as you cannot overdose the plant or damage it by giving it too much product – It is VERY important that you use at least a minimum of 100:1 mixed with water ratio when treating the area – failure to do so may result in plant scorching.

“Guzover” and “Guzunder” are both fish based products and as such may cause an allergic reaction in some people - if you are allergic to fish please use extreme caution.

Always wash hands well after use.

ExistingGently loosen the soil around the planting using either a hand fork or pitch-fork and either shake “Guzunder” down into the holes that the fork made in the soil, or gently work the product through the loose soil by hand causing minimum damage or disruption to the existing root system.

Once this has been completed apply a one-off treatment of “Root Booster” with added VAM as soon as possible to provide the plant with relief during the stressful process of transplanting and to allow the VAM to activate on the roots straight away.

Apply the product as a ground spray rather than a foliar spray as it is designed purely to assist in the development of the root system.

7 days after the “Root Booster” treatment, apply the first treatment of “Guzover” at a rate of 100ml per 100sqm mixed with water at minimum ratio of 100:1, once again if applying through the applicator simply place 100ml of raw product into the applicator and fill it to the top with water. This process can also be undertaken using a standard 9L watering can using 90ml of raw product with the can filled to the top with water.

“Guzover” is great as a foliar spray as many of its elements in the product attach themselves to the plant and provide an immediate lift for the planting – However – Please do not apply “Guzover” as a foliar spray to native plants as it will cause a reaction in the plant.
