Product Usage Instructions

Shake well before use. Keep from freezing.

Dilute one part Metalosate Manganese liquid foliar with 20 or more parts water. Apply by a spray method and with 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. Do not apply undiluted.

Metalosate Manganese liquid foliar 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 Manganese liquid foliar 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.
