Default Antler king Jolt?

Pros and cons to this product? How much water do you mix with it? My food plots have come up but just haven't grown a lot in 2 1/2 weeks thinking of spraying the JOLT on them. We have gotten 3 nice rains since I have planted. I did fertilize per my co-op recommendations but feel I might be still lacking nutrients. Thoughts?

I would not. The label on Jolt shows it is 9-17-8, so you are paying a lot for a basic fertilizer that will not provide enough of those nutrients to make a dent. Foliar feeding is not very effective for macronutrients, as it does not provide enough to meet plant needs. I didn't see the full label or MSDS for it, so I don't know what else is there. However, I don't think it is enough to justify the price, which is outrageously high. As a general rule, most of the stuff being made for food plots is given a unique name and container, then priced way out of range compared to what can be purchased for general agricultural use and is in a plain container with a plain name.

DId you test for micronutrients? If so, did anything show up? If not, I'd just be patient and let the fertilizer you put out do the job.

well you can try adding it to spike things' BUT seeds need proper soil PH and nutrients
if the site wasn't at a what they need, even adding this will NOT solve the issue
changing PH takes TIME< and well mixing of the lime to do so!
there is NO quick fix that will make for a great yield
and this is also why a soil test is so critical to getting good results and knowing where things are at and what to expect
