• Prevents or cures iron deficiency in plants
• Ideal for turf, ornamental shrubs and trees
• Makes iron immediately available to plants
If you have alkaline soil, then iron chlorosis may be causing new growth to have a pale green or yellow color. Iron chlorosis is caused by the lack of iron in the soil, or because iron is unavailable for uptake by your plants. This liquid iron supplement provides iron that is immediately available to your plants and remains in the soil for extended feeding. Liquid iron for plants is compatible with most tank mixes of fertilizers or pesticides. Mix 5 to 10 gals. of liquid iron for plants with enough water to cover one acre for turf application. For root feeding trees and shrubs, mix 4 oz. per inch of trunk diameter with 5 to 10 gals. of water and pour or inject around the drip line. Use 1 gal. in 64 gals. water for foliar applications. 1-gal. container. 4.7% iron oxide.
- Low solubility in aquaponic systems? Review by Justen
This product would only be suitable for foliar applications in aquaponic systems. At the higher pH range of 6.5-7.5 at which most aquaponic systems must operate (compared to 5.5-6.0 for most hydroponic systems) this product would not remain soluble and would rapidly precipitate out of solution. Only the DTPA form of chelated iron will remain soluble at higher pH.
