Product Usage Instructions

Shake well before use. Keep from freezing. Store in a cool place.

Dilute one-part Metalosate BIG 5 with 20 or more parts water. Apply by a spray method and in 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. Metalosate BIG 5 can be included in a regular spray program on crops. Do not apply undiluted.

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 BIG 5 may be used on legumes, grain crops, root crops, cucurbits, cruciferous crops, leafy vegetables, woody and herbaceous ornamentals, deciduous fruits, vine crops, tropical and subtropical fruits, and many other crops.

Market Specific Recommendations

Field Crops

Apply 8 to 16 fluid ounces per acre (500 to 1000 milliliters per hectare) during periods of rapid growth or nutritional stress. The application may be repeated 2 or more times through the growing season. (including corn, soybeans and rice)

Tree Crops

Apply 3 to 4 applications at 8 to 16 fluid oz per acre (500 to 1000 milliliters per hectare) per application. Spraying should start at the 3 to 4 leaf stage using the lower concentration. As the volume of foliage increases the application rate should increase to the higher concentration. (including beans, carrots, cucurbits, cole crops, leafy vegetables, onions and tomatoes)
