This iron chelate is stable through any soil pH, no matter how alkaline. It is best applied to the soil around the base of the tree where water can move it into the root zone of the plant.
It is best mixed with five gallons of water and applied to the soil or immediately washed into the soil after applied to a soil. This product is sensitive to light and must not be exposed to sunlight more than 4 hours. Use this on trees and vines that have shown iron deficiency in the past including apples, pears, citrus, plums, apricots, peaches and grapes.
Also good for ornamentals that have show iron problems including roses, photinia, palms, and many others.
