Directions For Use
AgroBest 10-8-8 is intended for foliar use. Apply 1 to 2 gallons per acre (10 to 20 liters per hectare) with sufficient water for thorough coverage. For best results, spray in early morning or late afternoon. Do not apply during the “sunlight” hours when air temperature is above 85° F/30° C. Foliar fertilization is intended to supplement standard ground fertility programs and will not by itself provide all nutrients normally required by agricultural crops. If you have any questions regarding mixing or application rates contact your Agro-K dealer before using this product.

Alternatively, product can be fertigated at 1-2 gallon per acre (10 to 20 liters/hectare) per application.

Lettuce, Spinach and Other Leafy Vegetables as well as Broccoli, Cauliflower and Other Brassica Varieties

Apply one or two subsequent applications at 10 to 14 day intervals or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements. Alternatively, product can be fertigated at 1-2 gallon per acre (10 to 20 liters/hectare) per application.

Corn, Beans and Peas

Apply 1 to 3 gallons per acre (10 to 30liters/hectare) per application. A first application can be ground applied as a starter fertilizer if carefully.
