Crops: Our blackstrap molasses supplies important nutrients such as potassium, iron, phosphorus, calcium, and sulfur, among others. It contains complex sugars that help to increase Brix, and those complex sugars have humic-like properties that beneficial bacteria and fungi feed on. Plants with higher Brix may have increased resistance to insect pests and diseases. Can be applied at all stages of growth, including the vegetative stage; especially beneficial during flowering. Foliar spray: 1 Tablespoon per gallon. Soil application: Start with 1 Tablespoon per gallon; during flowering this concentration can be increased. For aiding in the decomposition of mowing or crop residues, use 1-4 quarts molasses (diluted with water) per acre.
Livestock: Blackstrap molasses is a common and cost-effective feed additive used for many purposes. Add it to your animals’ drinking water in cold weather, where it will give a helpful caloric boost and its pleasant flavor will encourage better water consumption and prevent impaction. If you cannot find good hay, a drizzle of molasses will improve the palatability of poor quality hay as well as increase the ration’s energy and mineral content. A good option for treating ketonic cows. Molasses will act as a binder, reducing dust in finely ground feeds. Molasses may be fed liberally, but not free-choice: restrict to 10% of the ration or less.
Our new blackstrap molasses contains an organic anti-foam additive which is OMRI-listed for crops, livestock, and even human consumption (though the molasses itself isn’t handled to human food grade standards). We’re still offering molasses without the additive for those who may prefer it unadulterated. MOFGA
