NOTES

  • NutriSmart-SB is soil applied.

  • Foliar apply Nutrol, Krystal Klear Agra Mix 3, Krystal Klear Fe and LidoQuest Citrus Special.

  • KaPre ExAlt is applied through micro-jets.

  • After making the initial NutriSmart-SB application, reduce soil-applied fertilizer rates by 25-50%. Reduce subsequent soil-applied NPK rates by 10-20% for the remainder of the first season of treatment. Return to typical soil-applied fertility program after the first season of treatment.

  • If possible, make first NutriSmart-SB application two weeks before making first fertilizer application.

  • Do not apply glyphosate products without Argosy-RF, and, if possible, cease applications after June 1until after harvest.

  • Reduce herbicide rate to a lower labeled rate, not to exceed a 25% reduction of a typical application rate, and apply with Argosy-RF rain-fast adjuvant at 1-2 quarts per 100 gallons of spray solution.

This is a basic program. Additional foliar and/or granular applications may be required during the season.
