Metalosate Big 5™ liquid foliar is designed for foliar application on plants to prevent or correct nutrient deficiencies that may limit crop growth and yields. It is water soluble and nontoxic to plants when applied as directed. For best results, apply Metalosate® BIG 5™ according to recommendations based on plant tissue or soil analysis.
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 an Albion® 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.
Field Crops (including corn, soybeans and rice): 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.
Tree Crops (including beans, carrots, cucurbits, cole crops, leafy vegetables, onions and tomatoes): 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.
