Both of these products are available in my area, but the Alaska product is a lot cheaper than NH.
Is NH worth the extra $$ or not?
I don't know if I can quantify 'worth the price,' but the only difference I see is that Alaska Fish Emulsion is 5-1-1 according to the label on the one in my garage and Neptune Fish Fertilizer is 2-4-1.
So, what do you need more of nitrogen or phosphorus? Neptune's product would probably make a better starter solution while Alaska's might be better as a fertilizer for more established plants.
NH is fish hydrolysate (high DRAWL uh sate) made by letting enzymes partially digest fish parts at room temp. AFE is an emulsion made by heating the fish parts until they boil down into jelly and thus cooking any proteins, vitamins, or enzymes that might have been there. Those are the differences. The people who test those things like the hydrolysate.
I have a question. I was told by the organic garden center in my area that NH is all I need to fertilize my tomatoes. Is this true or should I use something else as well??
I've used Alaskan for the last three years with exceptional results. My tomatos and peppers were very prolific. I went out to purchase Neptune, but my local Nursery was out of it. I picked up Neptune yesterday and am now going to use it this year to see if any results change/increase. This one is the Fish/Seaweed mix.
Kevin, Would you mind telling me the cost of the NH and what area that your in? Thanks, Luke
