General Information


Xylex foliar nutrient compound is to be used as a supplement to soil applied nutrients and is particularly beneficial under conditions where soil nutrients are not readily available.

Xylex is a complete liquid nutrient compound and when used in a spray program will prevent nutrient deficiencies.

Xylex will assure adequate nutrients at the critical periods of flower and fruit development. Xylex will aid root growth, crop yield and quality.

Xylex has an acidity of about 1.5 pH and can be used as a buffering aid with most fungicides, herbicides and insecticides susceptible to alkaline hydrolysis.

Xylex can be applied by ground or aerial application or by injecting into a sprinkler irrigation system.
