Most potted and garden plants have no chance to develop without fertilization. Here, soil ecosystems are inadequate for growth. Using artificial nutrients is therefore necessary to make up for the lack of certain minerals. Effective fertilization requires knowledge, which is difficult for beginners in gardening.

Crop diseases threaten nut and fruit crops all over the USA. They have a high contribution to the loss of viable crops in the United States, with 40-50% of crop loss to diseases worldwide.
Common Diseases in crops:
Sierra Natural Science’s Organic Disease & Fungal Control product penetrates the microbial cell wall and builds a protective coating against the elements, thus keeping the active ingredients available longer to use against the microbes. Natural preservatives are used to stop decomposition of the plant cell wall, adding an active natural healing action to the plant not just a controlling action against microbes.
Blossom Farms Apple Orchards DC trial for fireblight
DC is an organic disease and fungal control product that can be used up to harvest to eliminate a wide range of disease for higher yields at a lower cost.
Sierra Natural Science worked with Mr. Rajkovich to try to save the rest of their apple trees from fireblight. On one of their 5 acre blocks of apples they had several hundred strikes where the branches needed to be removed from the trees. One application was sprayed on the 5 acres which significantly reduced the issue. The following year DC was sprayed again:
“Our weather conditions make it so fireblight is a major concern in the spring when the apples are in bloom. We applied DC [when] the apples were in their dormant stage, and at pre-bloom stage. The results were dramatic. I am extremely happy with the results which DC has provided our apple orchards for fireblight control at a fraction of the cost of using fungicides and antibacterials. We had no more than 5 strikes. I expect there to be zero fireblight next year.” – Randall P. Rajkovich
We continue to work with Randall and their great team with hope of increasing their yield every year.
These plants were taken out by a tornado! Thank god they were so healthy from SNS products, inside and outside plants have never been this healthy. I just stood the plant back up and taped them, they didn’t skipped a beat thanks to your products.
Nothing at all died off, I honestly can’t think of any other reason other than that i’ve been using all of SNS’s nutrients and supplements consistently. These plants are all clones from a plant that was also impacted by a tornado and they didn’t come back a fast as this grow did with SNS’s nutrients. The weather was in the 90s for two weeks after the damage as well, so it could have been a bad recovery. Of course, I do water everyday but after this happened, I changed from nutrients every 3rd day, to every other day and water in between. I used SNS’s nutrient system with SNS 604A Root & Stalk Supplement. The only other thing I used was add in a little silica and a tiny bit of cal-mag once a week.
For my flowering plants, I used SNS nutrient’s with SNS 604B Bud & Flower Supplement and very little silica. The plants that just finished flowering, have better buds that my previous grow, no bugs at all inside or outside “knocks on wood.” I did use SNS PC Pest Control, SNS 203 Pest Control Root Drench, SNS 217C Spider Mite Control and SNS 209 Preventative Pest Control. Here are some photos of the plants that just finished, the buds are hard as rocks and the stickiest buds any of my friends have ever felt.
I have been cloning these strains for 4 grows now and they have never been this healthy or been able to take this level of stress this summer has brought. SNS has made my grow so much healthier, thank you for such great products!
The last 2 images are the ones that the stem broke in the storm, and the others of the stem as thick as the coke can! I think they healed and saved themselves because of the massive root system from using SNS 604A! The soil feels like a sponge with millions and millions of roots.
I just finished 2 days of cutting and hanging, even the main branches 4 nodes up, are bigger than a sharpie. I also trimmed and cleaned my flower tent and the roots were coming out of the 1 gallon fabric starter pots! These roots are 3 weeks from seeding, amazing! I only used SNS 203 Pesticide Root Drench, the Nutrient system and 604A. They’re all pure white and healthy roots coming out the bottom, sides and top of the pots.
Poor growth is one of the most common problems for crops. The most natural and economical way to feed your plants, therefore, is to offer them a rich and balanced soil from which they draw their food according to their needs. The nutrients needed to promote growth are often not found in the soil. In …

Pam R. from North Carolina I started using the SNS 209 as a systemic on my roses at the end of last season, in the hopes I could get ahead of thrips. The difference is remarkable—my roses are more vigorous, less susceptible to disease, the leaves are darker green, and I am getting plenty of …
