A soluble powder formulation of iron chelate (ethylene diamine tetraacetate disodium salt) containing water soluble Fe of 13.2% w/w
- For the correction of iron deficiency in many agricultural, horticultural and fruit crops. Recommended for foliar application to acid soils.
- As an iron source in hydroponics and other nutrient solutions.
- Iron Chelate should be applied where there is a recognised need. Do not exceed the appropriate dose rate.
- It is compatible with all other iron chelate and many crop care chemicals. They are also fully compatible with solutions containing soluble phosphates such as liquid feeds and foliar fertilisers.
Rates of application:
First check the pH of nutrient solution and if necessary adjust this to 5 – 6, then add iron chelate at the rate of 20 gm per 1,000 litres of nutrient solution.
Dissolve the appropriate amount of iron chelate in a convenient volume of water (1-3 kg per hectare or 100 grams per 18 litres water sprayer) and apply to the soil as a course, low pressure spray.
The amount of iron chelate to be applied should be mixed with a volume of water appropriate to the crop leaf area not exceeding a solution concentration of 0.1% or 100 grams per 100 litres water. Coat the leaves and stems with a thin film of moisture with little or no run-off and in late afternoon.
