General Information

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Nutri-Phite Magnum is a concentrated nutrient solution containing, in highly soluble form, 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 manufacture’s recommended directions for use. Applications of Nutri-Phite Magnum should be part of a fertility program based upon soil and tissue testing data and is intended for use as a supplemental treatment.

Foliar Application - Nutri-Phite Magnum may be applied by air or with all types of ground spraying equipment.

For aerial application, apply 1 to 4 pints per acre in a minimum of 6 ¼ to 25 gallons of water per acre.

For ground application, apply 1 to 4 pints per acre. Do not exceed a product concentration of 2% volume/volume maximum. For the following product rates, do not use less than the corresponding gallons of water per acre: 1 pint/acre = 6¼ gallons of water/acre; 2 pints/acre = 12½ gallons of water/acre; 3 pints/acre = 18¾ gallons of water/acre; 4 pints/acre = 25 gallons of water/acre. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)

Soil Application – Nutri-Phite Magnum 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 1 to 4 pints per acre. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)

Compatibility - Nutri-Phite Magnum 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 Magnum 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 fanjets) 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 Magnum toward the end of the irrigation set and allow sufficient time for the product to be flushed completely out of the entire irrigation system prior to turning off the irrigation water.

APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS

DO NOT tank mix Nutri-Phite Magnum with fungicidal copper products or apply the spray solution to plants that have been or will be treated with a fungicidal copper spray within 10 days of the planned Nutri-Phite Magnum application.
