Recommended application rates

2 L/ha (maximum dilution 0.2%)
Foliar spray at the beginning of spring growth (July) for stimulation of new root growth.

3 L/ha (maximum dilution 0.3%)
Foliar spray applied together with Sunny® starting at 50% bloom.

NB Boron application with Kelpak is essential for fruit set:

It is important to note that boron deficiency in plants will stimulate the enzyme indoleacetic acid oxidase, which lowers auxins levels, resulting in poor pollen tube growth and fruit set. It is therefore essential to correct any boron deficiency before or with Kelpak application for optimal results. Caution: Do not apply boron where (boron) toxicity may occur.
