It is crucial to regulate the pH level of the irrigation water or the nutrient solution used to irrigate our plants. The plant's capacity to absorb nutrients depends on this to a great extent. With pH levels that are too acidic or too alkaline the roots will not be able to absorb the nutrients. This causes nutritional deficiencies that impact on the final production.
It is said that in organic cultivation this factor is less important than in coconut or soilless cultivation. But whatever the type of substrate and nutrition, with inadequate pH levels the plants will not develop correctly and will present macro and micronutrient deficiencies.
Butator by The Hype: PH regulator
The Hype Butator is a fully organic pH reducer that regulates the pH to the level required. It is totally free of nitric and phosphoric acid, a very important factor for growers who can finally use a pH reducer that respects the substrate's microbial life.
By using Butator it is not necessary to add microbial life after each irrigation to repopulate the substrate. Butator formula is much more respectful of microbial life than many other much more aggressive pH-reducers. Undoubtedly it is a step forward in helping the grower save the cost of administering beneficial microorganisms to the plant.
The Hype Butator recommended dosage
As a general rule, it is recommended to add the product in small doses and to check the pH level with a digital pH meter.
