GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Nutri-Phite Multi-Phite is a concentrated nutrient product 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 manufacturer’s recommended directions for use. Applications of Nutri-Phite Multi-Phite should be part of a fertility program based upon soil and tissue testing and is intended for use as a supplemental fertilizer treatment.

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

For aerial application, apply 1 to 2 lbs per acre in a minimum of 6 to12 gallons of water per acre. Do not exceed a product concentration of 2% weight/volume maximum.

For ground application, apply 1 to 4 lbs per acre. Do not exceed a product concentration of 2% weight/volume maximum. For the following product rates, do not use less than the corresponding gallons of water per acre: 1lb/acre = 6 gallons of water/acre; 2 lbs/acre = 12 gallons of water/acre; 3 lbs/acre = 18 gallons of water/acre; 4 lbs/acre = 24 gallons of water/acre. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)

Soil Application - Nutri-Phite Multi-Phite 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 lbs per acre. (See APPLICATION PRECAUTIONS section)

Compatibility - Nutri-Phite Multi-Phite 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 Multi-Phite 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) can be substituted for foliar applications described above. 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 Multi-Phite 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 Multi-Phite 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 Multi-Phite application.
