Container Nursery Stock
2 – 4 g/l
for every extra litre content*
Total rate when using a 50 litre container:
3 g/l for first 10 litre = 30 gram
1 g/l for the additional 40 litre = 40 gram
Total = 30 + 40 = 70 gram per 50 litre container
Reduce the above mentioned recommended rates for sensitive plant material. Apply the product only by topdressing. In case drip irrigation is used, place the product under the drippers.
This product is not meant for mixing or dibbling in substrates. Topdress products cannot be used with capillary mats or ebb / flow irrigation systems. Contact your ICL Specialty Fertilizers advisor for more detailed advice.
Trial first on a small scale before rate, application or other changes in your cultural practices are implemented. As circumstances can differ and as the application of our products is beyond our control, ICL Specialty Fertilizers cannot be made responsible for any negative results.
