FRUIT AND NUT CROPS

General Information

General Information
Foliar applications are used as a supplemental
method of feeding to help correct
nutrient deficiencies and to enhance crop
quality and are not intended to replace a
complete fertility program. Applications to
actively growing plants produce the best
results. Avoid foliar applications of this
product when plants are suffering from
moisture stress or during periods of high
temperature and low humidity.

Mixing and Handling Instructions

Compatibility: BRANDT 20-20-20
MICRO may be applied separately or in
conjunction with most pesticides and
with other fertilizers. The addition of
wetting agents often enhances nutrient
uptake. DO NOT use with basic metal
sulfates, strongly alkaline materials (such
as hydrated lime and lime sulfur), or spray
oils. A compatibility test is recommended
if the desired combination has not been
previously used. Tank mixtures with
copper-based products can be phytotoxic
due to increased solubility of copper.
Before general applications, apply the
spray solution to a small test area of the
foliage to determine any undesirable
phytotoxic effects.
Mixing: Dissolve the recommended
amount of this product into approximately
one half the required water. Note: 2 lbs.
of this product per 100 gallons equals
1 oz./3 gal. or 1 Tbsp./1 gal. Slowly add
the remaining water while maintaining
constant agitation. Water quality and
temperature will determine maximum
solubility. Warmer water temperatures
increase solubility and shorten dissolving
time. As this product goes into solution, the
water temperature will drop. Therefore it
is important when preparing concentrated
solutions to allow for this temperature drop
to insure that the fertilizer is completely
dissolved. DO NOT exceed 2 lbs. BRANDT
20-20-20 MICRO per gallon of finish spray.

Rate Recommendations

Unless otherwise specified, use recommended
rates in the following water volumes
based on application method. Use sufficient
spray volume to insure thorough coverage
and wetting needed for optimum results.
Dilute: Greater than 100 gallons/acre.
Concentrate: 10-100 gallons/acre.
Aerial: 5-20 gallons/acre.
Fertigation: Apply this product at rates
necessary to provide the desired levels of
nutrients. Finish application at least onehalf
hour before end of irrigation schedule.

BRANDT 20-20-20 MICRO is recommended
for use on (but not limited to) the following
crops. Rates other than those suggested
below may be applied depending on crop
conditions and cultural practices.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

FRUIT AND NUT CROPS (such as Almonds, Apples, Apricots, Avocados, Cherries, Citrus, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Pecans, Plums, Prunes and Walnuts): Apply 5-20 lbs/A early in the growing season when leaves have emerged and repeat as needed. Do not use in late season sprays where fruit color and maturity is delayed by nitrogen applications. Do not use on Golden Delicious apples during slow drying conditions.
