Agtivate™ repairs the soil, supporting soil ecology and enhancing soil health and function, which means that it works on trees just as well as it does on row crops, garden vegetables, ornamentals, and grasses! We have put together some easy-to-follow guidelines on how you should water your trees.  Simply dilute Agtivate™ as recommended (1 gallon to 320 gallons) and water your trees of any age or type and watch them grow!

  1. Mix Agtivate™ at recommended dilution rate, i.e. 1 oz Agtivate to 2.5 gallons water (non-chlorinated)
  2. Apply 10-15 gallons of water (with Agtivate™ already diluted in it) for every inch of diameter of tree trunk measured at knee height. (This is a simple rule for all trees regardless of species and age.)3
  3. The amount of water to be applied will vary according to tree type, tree age, tree health, soil types and dryness of soil.
  4. The table below gives frequency of watering by tree type:
Tree Type Frequency Quantity Drip* & Sprinkler*** Run Time
Low water needs species Once or twice in the dry season 10-15 gallons/inch of trunk diameter Drip: Approx. 90 minutes Sprinkler: Approx. 45 minutes
Moderate water needs species Every other month 10-15 gallons/inch of trunk diameter Drip: Approx. 90 minutes Sprinkler: Approx. 45 minutes
High water needs species (Thirsty trees) Monthly 10-15 gallons/inch of trunk diameter Drip: Approx. 90 minutes Sprinkler: Approx. 45 minutes
  1. . The table below gives guidance for young trees (less than 5 years old)
Tree Age Frequency Quantity Drip* & Sprinkler*** Run Time
Three days after planted Fill the watering basin 3 times, using a total of 15-20 gallons 15-20 gallons Hand watering best at this stage
First three weeks after planting Fill the watering basin once a week 5-10 gallons Drip & Bubbler run time: Depends on flow rate
Two – Six months following planting Fill the watering basin every week or every other week 10-15 gallons Drip & Bubbler run time: Depends on flow rate
Remainder of first year Water every other week in absence of soaking rain 10-15 gallons Drip & Bubbler run time: Depends on flow rate
Year Two Every two to four weeks when rain is scarce 15-20 gallons Drip & Bubbler run time: Depends on flow rate
Year Three-Five Once a month 20-30 gallons Drip & Bubbler run time: Depends on flow rate
