Fertilizer Injectors and Mixers

Fertilizer Injectors & Mixers

Water and feed your plants all at once with fertigation!

What is Fertigation?

Fertilizing through an irrigation system is referred to as "fertigation." Historically, the products used in fertigation (known as “injectables”) have primarily been conventional (non-organic) or, if organic, uneconomical. These limitations have been minimized now that micronized organic fertilizers have been developed. Foliar fertilizers can be applied through irrigation lines, but you must increase the foliar rates by at least five times. To denote which fertilizers are appropriate for injecting, we have indicated them with an i for “injectable” and they are listed as such on our Fertilizer Solutions Chart. Most fertilizers in this section are injectable, but please note which of these products are dry and must be premixed with water before being injected. Irrigation lines should always be cleaned after fertigation by flushing with clean water before and/or after fertilizing. Use Therm X70 when flushing irrigation lines.

Injectors and Mixers

Mixers measure out liquid concentrates (fertilizers, soil inoculants, pest control sprays, etc.) and mix them with the proper amount of water, so all you have to do is turn on the water and spray or irrigate! The Siphon Mixer is for gardeners who have low water pressure and water with hoses. The Add-it Proportioning Fertilizer Injectors and the EZ-Flo System are the next step up, accommodating low water pressure and drip irrigation or sprinkler systems. The Young Mixer-Proportioner is also easy to use, but is more appropriate for the frequent user who needs to be able to regulate the mixing ratio (a feature unavailable on the first two mixers).
