Shogun Sumo Active Boost

Shogun Sumo Active Boost


Shogun Sumo Active Boost is specially developed for hydroponic systems. Sumo Active Boost creates serious yields while remaining stable in your hydroponic tank for up to 14 days. As with Shogun Sumo Boost, this version stimulates heavyweight nutrient uptake and photosynthesis while increasing the content of sugars, proteins, resins and terpenes.

Shogun Sumo Active Boost

SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost is a liquid emulsion concentrate composed of a natural compound called Triacontanol and a plant extract sustainably harvested from the South Atlantic. It has the same active ingredients as standard SHOGUN Sumo Boost but has been formulated in such a way that it remains stable in tanks for up to 14 days!

  • All of the same benefits as SHOGUN Sumo Boost but with enhanced stability for use in active hydro systems.
  • Use in exactly the same way. Root feed throughout flowering with a foliar application every two weeks.
  • Contains Triacontanol as well as plant auxins, cytokinins, brassinosteroids, vitamins, and amino acids extracted using unique cell burst technology.
  • Increases water and nutrient uptake producing higher fresh and dry weights upon harvest.
  • Increases the production of secondary metabolites. These metabolites are used as defense compounds and include resins and terpenes that normally protect plants from their external environments.
  • SHOGUN Sumo Active Boost may be used to stimulate growth in any stressed or underperforming crops.

Why choose Shogun Sumo Active Boost?

  • Formulated for stability in active hydroponic systems.
  • Stimulates photosynthesis and nutrient uptake.
  • Increases essential oils of fruits and flowers.
  • Brighter, larger yields.
  • Contains auxins and cytokinins naturally extracted from seaweed.
  • Forms greater resistance against bacteria and fungi.
  • Use as a root feed or foliar spray.
  • Best for NFT and bubbler systems.

Stays stable in hydroponic tanks

Shogun developed Sumo Boost for hand watering. And the results were incredible! Demand grew for a hydro version since the original hand-watering feed wasn’t designed to stay in tanks for long periods. Its key ingredient (brown seaweed) works wonders when it comes to plant growth but is prone to fermenting in recirculating systems. Shogun created the same yield-boosting properties in Sumo Active Boost, which is formulated with active hydroponic systems in mind. There’s still the same goodness - just a different technique. Using a cold-pressing method to extract triacontanol from green seaweed. Combined, this seaweed and this method ensure a much fresher result in NFTs, bubblers, and recirculating tanks.

Expert formula

Sumo Active Boost gets its power from triacontanol, a substance found in the waxy cuticles of leaves. When applied to roots, it acts as a growth stimulant while increasing sugar, protein, and oil content in your plants. It also contains seaweed extracted through natural and gentle methods. This helps it to retain the all-important auxins and cytokinins.

Auxins increase growth by physically elongating each cell as well as promoting cell division - so you’ll get a higher quantity of longer cells in your plant. This makes for impressive shoot growth! Cytokinins are essential plant regulators that control leaf formation and increase chlorophyll synthesis. As a result, they’re responsible for photosynthesis. High levels of cytokinins - as you’ll find in Active Boost - will boost your leaf canopy and your yields.

How to use Shogun Sumo Active Boost?

Shogun Sumo Active Boost is primarily a root feed, but you may use it less frequently as a foliar spray for a more targeted application.

Foliar Application – Add at a rate of 2ml/L and spray onto the leaves. Apply once when the flowering cycle starts and then again, 28 days later. The recommended pH for foliar application is – 5-7.

Root Feed – Add at a rate of 1-2ml/L to your nutrient reservoir or watering can, as soon as the flowering cycle starts and throughout until harvest. Do not use with hydrogen peroxide.

Apply throughout the flowering stage on a 9-week schedule. Growers may add extra weeks during mid-flowering (approximately weeks 4-5) if necessary.

Feeding information is the same for Sumo Active Boost no matter the substrate you’re growing in. Dilute in the following quantities and add to your watering can, reservoir, or hydroponic tank:

Weeks 1-6: 2ml of Sumo Active Boost per litre of nutrient solution.

Week 7: 1.5ml of Sumo Active Boost per litre of nutrient solution.

Week 8: 1ml of Sumo Active Boost per litre of nutrient solution.

Final Week: Water only during this stage.

Where to use Shogun Sumo Active Boost?

Sumo Active Boost is designed to stay fresh in hydroponic systems that reuse water for longer than drain-to-waste methods. This means it’s a perfect match for active and recirculating systems like NFTs and drain-to-wastes.

When to use Shogun Sumo Active Boost?

The ingredients in Shogun Sumo Boost are chosen to achieve peak flowering, so it should be used throughout the blooming stage.
