Application of Sea Minerals FA
Apply Sea Minerals as a Foliar Spray:
You can begin applying Sea Minerals as soon as there is growth on the plants (4-6 inches). SEA MINERALS FA CANNOT EASILY BE DISSOLVED IN A BUCKET BECAUSE IT IS SO CONCENTRATED. Think of trying to stir 1 cup of sugar into 1 glass of iced tea. It won't work.
Fill your tank 1/2 full, then turn on the agitator or PTO.
Cut a hole the size of your thumb and forefinger in the bottom of the bag. It takes about 2 minutes to empty a 50lb bag (5 minutes is better)
While continuting to fill the tank with water and with the agitator or PTO running, allow the minerals to sift slowly into the tank.
Add 1 tablespoon dishwashing liquid (the cheap kind) per 200 gallons of water.
In the small sprayer for garden and lawn, put half the amount of water, add the Sea Minerals and shake the sprayer. Then add the remainder of the water.
Points for successful application:
Make sure that you are putting out 20 gallons per acre
Do not apply when there is rain forecast. Apply only when you will have at least 3 hours dry time.
Pasture and Hay Meadows:
Dilute 4 lbs/20 gallons water/Acre. We recommend at least 3 applications per year- 2 or more weeks apart. Apply at green up and after each cutting or rotation of cattle. Sea Minerals FA does not require water to activate so it is safe to do any time.
