Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar is a water soluble, concentrated nutrient and, when diluted in water, contains, in highly available forms, certain elements beneficial to plant growth, flowering, crop development, crop quality, yield, fruit set, rooting, root development and transplant establishment when applied as a properly timed foliar or soil application. Follow manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Applications of Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar should be part of a fertility program based upon soil and tissue testing data and is intended for use as a supplemental fertilizer treatment.
Foliar Application – Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar may be applied by air or with all types of ground spraying equipment.
For aerial application, apply ¼ to 1 lbs per acre in a minimum of 2 to 8 gallons of water per acre. Do not exceed a product concentration of 1.5% weight/volume maximum.
For ground application, apply ¼ to 1 lbs per acre. Do not exceed a product concentration of 1.5% weight/volume maximum. For the following product rates, do not use less than the corresponding gallons of water per acre: ¼ lb/acre = 2 gallons of water/acre; ½ lbs/acre = 4 gallons of water/acre; ¾ lbs/acre = 6 gallons of water/acre; 1 lbs/acre = 8 gallons of water/acre. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)
Soil Application – Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar may be applied to the soil by all types of soil spraying/injection equipment and through certain types of irrigation systems. Refer to the IRRIGATION SYSTEM APPLICATION section. Apply ½ to 2 lbs per acre (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)
Compatibility – Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar is compatible with most commonly used foliar pesticides, chemically neutral fertilizers and micronutrients. It is not recommended to use this product with surfactants or adjuvants that lower pH. USER ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY to ensure compatibility when tank mixing with other products. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)
IRRIGATION SYSTEM APPLICATION
Applications of Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar to the soil can be made through certain irrigation systems including, but not limited to, low volume systems (e.g. micro sprinklers, drippers, drip tape and fan jets) and typical sprinkler systems (e.g. solid set, pull and hand move.) The specific injection equipment and irrigation system must conform to all federal, state and local regulations pertaining to the fertilization of plants through an irrigation system. Accurate and properly calibrated injection equipment and an irrigation system that is operated at maximum distribution uniformity will help avoid plant injury and/or product ineffectiveness. For best results, apply Nutri-Phite Dry Foliar toward the end of the irrigation set and allow sufficient time for the product to be flushed out of the entire irrigation system prior to turning off the irrigation water.
AS WITH ALL MATERIALS, USER SHOULD EXERCISE PRECAUTION TO AVOID POTENTIAL PHYTOTOXICITY INCLUDING FOLIAR BURNING. PRECAUTION IS ADVISED IF APPLYING THIS PRODUCT IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER MATERIALS SINCE MIXING COULD RESULT IN A POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS OR UNDESIRABLE REACTION CAUSED BY PRODUCT INCOMPATIBILITIES. A COMPATIBILITY TEST IS RECOMMENDED BEFORE TANK MIXING WITH OTHER PRODUCTS. THE pH OF ANY FINAL SPRAY SOLUTION SHOULD BE CHECKED AND AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF THE SOLUTION BE APPLIED TO A SMALL AREA OF THE INTENDED CROP TO ENSURE PLANT COMPATIBILITY PRIOR TO THE PLANNED APPLICATION. USER ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE PRODUCT, EQUIPMENT AND PLANT COMPATIBILITIES.
GRAPES - Apply ½ to 1 lb per acre (+/- ½ to 1kg/hectare) per application.
Table Grapes: Apply first application at bloom. Apply subsequent applications at bunch pre-closing, veraison and two to three weeks prior to harvest or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.
Wine Grapes: Apply first application at approximately 5% bloom. Apply subsequent applications at bunch pre-closing, veraison and two to three weeks prior to harvest or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.
