Mixing and Handling Instructions
Compatibility: This product may be applied separately or in conjunction with
most other fertilizers. It is compatible with most acid based fertilizers and
other plant nutrients. However, a compatibility test is recommended if the
desired combination has not been previously used.
DO NOT mix with ammonium thiosulfate, potassium thiosulfate or other
high pH or high free-ammonia products. When mixing this product with
UAN 32, it is suggested to use up to one gallon of water per one gallon of
UAN 32 to insure complete and thorough mixing. This product is a low pH
material and should only be applied with suitable equipment.
Application Method: This product is most effective when applied through
an irrigation system or banded. Soil applications can be incorporated in
liquid fertilizer or applied separately. 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, with the exception of center pivot and
lateral systems, apply this product toward the end of the irrigation set.
Allow sufficient time for the product to be flushed completely out of the
irrigation system prior to turning off the irrigation water.
Mixing: Add this product to a partially filled tank and slowly add the
remaining water while maintaining constant agitation. Always add this
product to the spray tank before adding other agricultural chemicals. To
avoid potential phytotoxicity, test a small amount of solution on the intended
target area to ensure plant compatibility prior to the planned application.
In the absence of a soil or leaf analysis to determine nutrient deficiencies,
apply the following rates:
