the rest of the bottle up with water.
Yes. Whilst Charlie carp is good for every type of plant and lawn for orchids and chillies we reccomend using half strength but twice
as often ie 5mls per 1 litre of water every 2 weeks.
Charlie Carp is great for increasing yields on winter and summer crops. We recommend spraying all over the foliage until point of drip off - this allows the the plant to take in the macro and micro nutrients immediately through their foliage, whilst the drip off nourishes the soil. We recommend spraying twice during the growing season. Firstly spray when you have a good coverage of foliage over the paddock and secondly as a top dress.

to use Charlie carp at half the recommended rate before moving up to full rate. Charlie Carp has a low phosphorous of 1%.

Charlie Carp Fertiliser is best used early in the mornings or later in the evenings. Definitely NOT in the middle or the main heat of the day. If you know a day is going to be above 30 degrees, it is best to wait for a cooler day, e.g. 28 degrees or below as it depends on the position of your plants and the way your garden faces, i.e. North, South, East or West.
From a seasonal point of view, you should fertilise your Roses when you plant them and as soon as the growing period starts. i.e. early Spring. Fertilise fortnightly as a foliar feed until point of drip off and the excess drips down into the soil, nourishing the roots. Charlie Carp works well as a preventative to black spot and aphids. You must treat the black spot first then spray with Charlie carp to prevent it from recurring. The oil from the fish leaves a fine film on the foliage, which aphids detest.

The two methods that are used are a netting process and electro fishing

the fish population in the Murray – Darling Basin alone is Carp. In our
warmer environment, the carp’s breeding cycle is less interrupted and they can out breed native fish many times over.

oats, wheat, pastures, vegetables, cotton and cut flowers just to name a few.
