Product Usage Instructions
Apply by a spray method and in an adequate amount of water that will provide complete coverage of the plants. Use of a non‑ionic wetting agent may improve spray coverage of certain hard to wet plants.
Metalosate Calcium soluble organic powder can be included in a regular spray program on crops. Consult with a Balchem representative on compatibility with other spray materials. The rate of application will depend on the crop, stage of growth, and severity of deficiency. The maximum recommended rates are for mature, full-sized plants. Reduce the rates proportionately when spraying smaller plants.
Metalosate Calcium soluble organic powder may be used on legumes, grain crops, root crops, cucurbits, cole crops, leafy vegetables, woody and herbaceous ornamentals, deciduous fruits, vine crops, tropical and subtropical fruits, and many other crops.
Market Specific Recommendations
Field Crops and Vegetables
Apply 8 to 16 ounces (230 to 460 grams) per acre during periods of rapid growth or nutritional stress. The application may be repeated 2 or more times through the growing season.
Make an application of 16 to 32 ounces (460 to 920 grams) per acre after the beginning of active growth. The application may be repeated at 2 to 4-week intervals through the growing season. Mid- and late-season sprays directed to cover the fruit may help to reduce the effect of calcium-related disorders. For post-harvest fruit treatment, dilute at a rate of 32 to 64 ounces (920 to 1840 grams) per 100 gallons of water.
Grapes and Berries
Make an application of 8 to 16 ounces (230 to 460 grams) per acre after active growth begins. The application may be repeated at intervals of one week or more through the vegetative‑growth period.
