Ferriplus Chelated Iron is one of the best fast acting chelated irons on the market for Iron Chlorosis. Can be used as a foliar spray or granular form. Great for trees, gardens, roses and all your vegetative growth.
Iron (Fe).......................................................... 6%
Iron is totally chelated by FeEDDHA (ethylenediamine di-(o-hydroxyphenylacetic acid).
Moisture content not more than 10%.
Miller Ferriplus is a source of iron in a form which is readily available to plants. It can be applied as a soil application or as a foliar spray. Miller Ferriplus performs on slightly acid to slightly alkaline and calcareous soils. However, Miller Ferriplus is best suited for soils with a pH above 7.5. Rates of application depend upon severity of deficiency, but should be kept within the recommended range for each crop. Optimum results, unless specified differently, occur when applications are made early in the growth cycle.
For soil application, the Miller Ferriplus must get into the root zone for optimum results. The chelate can be placed in the root zone during planting, or it can be incorporated into the soil by rainfall, irrigation, or mechanical tillage.
SOIL APPLICATIONS: Miller Ferriplus can be applied in water or in liquid fertilizers. For row crops, soil applications are most effective when made in a band placed in the soil at planting time or as a side-dressing shortly after plants emerge or after transplanting. When treating soil around trees, apply within the drip line. Lightly incorporate into the soil, or water in, for best results. For most ornamentals, shrubs and trees, dissolve Miller Ferriplus in a convenient volume of water and sprinkle the solution on the soil around the plants.
FOLIAR SPRAY: Foliar applications in water should be made as thorough cover sprays. Miller Ferriplus is compatible with most commonly used insecticides and fungicides and can be applied in combination with them. However, because available pesticide combinations differ so widely, before applying chelate-pesticide combinations to large crop areas, a small test area should be sprayed to determine that no phytotoxicity or undesirable effects result from the combination spray. Can be applied by aircraft applications. DO NOT use in combination with Parathion, oils, or Lime Sulfur sprays.
MIXING DIRECTIONS: To facilitate the mixing, add the required amount of powder to a small amount of water and mix until completely dissolved. The pre-mix solution can than be added, using agitation, to the final water or liquid fertilizer solution.
For mature trees, apply 1⁄3 to 1⁄2 lb. per tree in light sandy soils and 1⁄2 to 1 lb. per tree in heavy soils. Broadcast evenly within the drip line prior to the winter flush of growth. For an annual maintenance program, apply 1⁄4 to 1⁄3 lb. per tree.
