    exactly.activates plants SAR.
    my plants were well established so there were a lot of 'feeder' roots at the top of my soil.i would scratch in a 1/4-1/2 cup per 35gallon pot,a day after watering with dry weather in the forecast.you can water it in,yes it will work,but according to the owner of a frass co. i talked to,he recommended top dressing dry to not waste product.kind of like cutting a compost tea,you can,but it will be weaker.

    i talked to the owner of this company a year or two back.i contacted him to ask about the foliar(i was hoping it may deter bugs) and that's when he recommended just top dressing dry

    But if it has a npk of 2-2-2 then it is a mild all around fert no?

    yes it is.watch your nitrogen sources for sure.there is a possibilty of burning.but like roger says,i believe it's more useful helping the plant build up it's defense mechanism against bugs etc...

    Nearly half is soluble nitrogen. That's a good sign

    That's the SAR response. It's also a good fertilizer. The brand of insect frass I have is 2-2-2 so as a fertilizer it's a perfect neutral amendment and you can use it at any stage of growth without it throwing things out of whack.

    I've heard of people treating plants that are already infected with viruses with frass and that being enough for the plant to kick the infection. There's also the new Harpin Protein based product that is a more focused catalyst for the response.
