Chemical Specification Guide: Fertilizers and pesticides

Combination products are the ultimate in efficiency, allowing you to fertilize and treat for pests simultaneously. As you go through these charts, keep in mind that while you’ll gain time by using these products, you’ll lose a little flexibility because you must adhere to application rates that are dictated by the pesticide active ingredient.

On the next two pages, you’ll find an overview of available combination products, separated by type of pesticide. Each chart describes the fertilizer analysis for the products, as well as the percent of pesticide active ingredient and who supplies the product. For many of the fertilizer analysis columns, you’ll see the word “various.” This indicates that the supplier formulates the active ingredient of the product with numerous fertilizer analyses or that they custom blend the combination. Also, the fertilizer contained in combination products can be made up of fast- or slow-release fertilizers, or both. If you need more specific information about the fertilizer ingredient, contact the supplier.
