APRICOTS, NECTARINES, PEACHES, PLUMS AND PRUNES - FOLIAR APPLICATION
CITRAPLEX 20% COPPER is a non-phytotoxic, citric acid based micronutrient for foliar and soil application.
The metal is highly available and absorbed through leaves or root systems. Use stainless steel or acid resistant plastic or fiberglass for mixing equipment.
COMPATIBILITY: CITRAPLEX 20% COPPER is generally compatible with most chemicals used in crop protection. It may be incorporated into existing spray programs. Add micronutrient to water before adding
other ingredients. It is always advisable to test for compatibility on a small scale (quart jar) before full scale mixing.
FOLIAR APPLICATIONS: For best absorption into the plant, apply this product in the morning or late evening. For aerial application, use at least 1 gallon of water for every pound of product. This will supply adequate volume for proper distribution. Activator 90 is the preferred adjuvant to use with CITRAPLEX 20% COPPER. Consult local extension agent for sensitive crops.
SOIL APPLICATIONS: CITRAPLEX 20% COPPER should only be applied when used with acid fertilizers and soil pH values less than 7.5.
