Foliar Fertilizers

Foliar fertilizers are fertilizers mixed with water and sprayed on the leaves or foliage of plants. Use distilled water instead of tap water. If you must use tap water, adjust the pH of the water as close to neutral pH (pH=7.0) as possible. 


General purpose fertilizers should have all three numbers close to same value (16-16-16; 20-20-20). Fertilizers for flowering should be high in phosphorus, the middle number (6-30-30; 10-52-10).


Some foliage is easier for liquid fertilizers to penetrate than others. Use a wetting agent or surfactant to help fertilizer pass through the outer, waxy leaf surfaces. EZ Wet is a very good surfactant and is included in this category.


EZ Wet   Qt.    Spray Surfactant    Derived from saponins from agave                            

Use EZ Wet to improve the penetration of foliar applied fertilizers and systemic pesticides through leaf surfaces, the re-wetting of compost, coir and peat moss and root uptake of soil applied drenches. Because it is a high quality surfactant, it demonstrates similar properties to insecticidal soaps. Unlike insecticidal soaps, it is not affected by water pH and chemistry. It should be combined with all fertilizers applied as a spray, soil drenches, fertilizers used in injectors, micronutrient applications, hydroponics and any solutions containing fertilizers and many types of pesticides. Consult the label whether a product is effective in your situation.

 

As a soil penetrant, apply 1.25 to 2.5 gallons per acre or use 40 ounces in 50 gallons of water. Smaller areas use 1 to 3 ounces per 1000 ft.². In soilless media such as peat moss, coir or compost use 10 ounces in 50 gallons of water. For mixing in smaller amounts, use 1 to 3 ounces in 5 to 10 gallons of water. This advice is intended as a guide for making a purchase. Consult the label prior to any application.

 

Whether you use EZ Wet or not, please use a surfactant when making foliar applications if you want the best results from an application.

Never apply when temperatures are above 95° F. Turfgrass typically regreens turfgrass with one application. If used as a dry product on lawns, apply sulfur to the soil in combination with the iron sulfate to lower the pH sufficiently for plant use.

 

Caution: iron sulfate will stain cement and stucco. Be sure to clean these areas immediately after an application and before it dries.


Apply 2 to 10 lbs of iron sulfate per acre of turfgrass  or 2 to 4 oz of iron sulfate in enough water to cover 1000 square feet of lawn. Woody plants may require multiple applications (4 to 5) a few days apart to get complete greening.
