Use as a direct replacement for general purpose NPK liquid fertilizers. Gold Leaf replaces micronutrient (trace element) feeds and calcium supplements. Dose at 15 mL
(1/2 oz.) per gallon of water to already moist soil. Apply Gold Leaf solution every third time you water. (Approximately every 7 – 14 days) when plants are actively growing.
Compost Drenches and Potted Plants
Apply at 15 mL (1/2 oz.) per gallon of water in peat-based growing media. Apply at 20 mL (3/4 oz.) per gallon if treating coir (coconut fiber). Apply Gold Leaf solution every third time you water. (Approximately every 7 – 14 days).
Apply at 4 mL (1/8 oz.) per gallon of water as a fine spray approximately every two weeks. As with any foliar fertilizer, avoid application to plants in hot weather.
Apply at 4 mL (1/8 oz.) per gallon of water. Apply as a direct replacement for general purpose NPK fertilizer.
Use on Farmland
Calculate the desired nutrient concentration based on current application rates for the specific crop. Calculate on the basis of “total kg of NPK” delivered rather than comparing EC levels, as Gold Leaf has a low EC level by design to reduce salinity issues.
Alleviating Salt Stress
Crops growing in saline areas will respond well to Gold Leaf addition.Its low chlorine content combined with the nitrates and organic carbon will help alleviate the toxicity of sodium to the crop.Saline conditions are common in fields located near the coast, in arid regions where irrigation is commonplace, or where desalinated water is used to irrigate crops.
