Zinc Dextro-Lac®


THE DEXTRO-LAC® ADVANTAGE Agro-K’s Zinc Dextro-Lac® a foliar micronutrient, is derived from zinc carbonate. A series of proprietary manufacturing processes are used to separate the zinc from the carbonate molecule and link it to a polysaccharide molecule creating a nutrient product linked to a sugar base. The term Dextro-Lac® is used to convey the process and resulting product.

The Dextro-Lac® process creates a foliar zinc product that can quickly penetrate plant tissue – leaves, buds, fruit skin and bark. Nutrient uptake happens directly through the cell walls. Once inside the cell, the zinc polysaccharide molecule is easily metabolized and mobilized by the plant system.

Directions For Use
Zinc Dextro-Lac is intended for foliar use. Apply 1 to 8 pints per acre 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.

Suggested Uses

Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply the first application 7 days after transplanting, thinning or at second true leaf stage. Apply subsequent applications at 14 day intervals as needed to correct deficiencies or supplement nutritional requirements.

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

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply the first application 7 days after transplanting, thinning, or at second true leaf stage. Apply one or two subsequent applications at 10 to 14 day intervals or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Corn, Beans and Peas

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. A first application can be ground applied with starter fertilizers if carefully mixed in a dilute solution (contact Agro-K for more information). Otherwise, apply the first application at the second or third leaf. Apply one to two subsequent applications at 10 to 14 day intervals or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Strawberries

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply the first application 7-10 days after transplanting. Reapply at 7-14 day intervals or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Potatoes, Onions and Other Vegetable Root, Bulb or Tuber Crops

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply the first application 2-3 weeks post emergence. Apply one to two subsequent applications at 10 to 14 day intervals or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Almonds, Walnuts and Other Nut Crops

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application at bud break. Apply subsequent applications at petal fall and nut fill or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Plums, Peaches, Cherries and Other Stone Fruits

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application at green tip on plums and at pink bud on nectarines and other stone fruit. Apply subsequent applications at 30 day intervals up to pit hardening or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Apples, Pears and Other Pome Fruits

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application at green tip or bud break. Apply subsequent applications at petal fall and post thinning as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Citrus and Avocados

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application pre-bloom. Apply subsequent applications at 30 day intervals up to harvest or as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Grapes

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (± 1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application two weeks prior to bloom. Apply subsequent applications as needed and determined by leaf analysis.

Raspberries, Blackberries and Other Caneberries

Apply 1 to 4 pints per acre (1 to 5 liters/hectare) per application. Apply first application pre-bloom. Apply subsequent applications at 7-14 day intervals as needed to supplement nutritional requirements.

Spring Seeded Small Grains (including crops grown for hay)

Apply 1-3 pints per acre with herbicide, or just prior to strong foliar growth, and/ or at flag leaf formation. A compatibility jar test is recommended especially if applying with amine formulations.

Winter Wheat

Apply 1 to 4 pints/acre with spring fertilizer or herbicide application or through overhead irrigation. A second application can be made from flag leaf formulation through head fill. Zinc DextroLac can be applied with fungicides or insecticides. A compatibility jar test is recommended.
