100% EDTA chelated micronutrient - manganese

CHE-MAN 5% chelated micronutrient is fully chelated and in a form readily available to plants. It is recommended for use as an additive in dry or liquid fertilizer. Soil application is the preferred method of application, although CHEMAN 5% may also be used as a foliar spray. It is important to treat the manganese deficiency before visual symptoms appear to insure proper yields. Rates of application will vary depending upon the severity of the deficiency, climate, soil type, and method of application. Consult your State Agricultural Experiment Station or Extension Specialists for advice in selecting treatments from this label to best fit local conditions. Avoid applying this product when plants are suffering from moisture stress.

  1. CHE-MAN 5% is compatible with most pesticides (use the standard jar test to determine compatibility)

  2. CHE-MAN 5% micronutrient is most effective when placed in the root zone during planting or moved into the soil by irrigation, tillage or rainfall

Directions and Usage

SOIL APPLICATION: CHE-MAN 5% micronutrient can be applied alone or in combination with dry or liquid fertilizer for preplant, starter or side dress applications. For most effective treatment of row crops, make soil application in a band at planting time or as a side dressing shortly after planting. CAUTION: DO NOT APPLY TO ORGANIC SOILS SUCH AS MUCK OR HIGH ORGANIC SANDS. Use foliar sprays on these soil types to correct manganese deficiencies.
FOLIAR APPLICATION: CHE-MAN 5%, when diluted with water according to label recommendations, can be applied as a foliar spray. Thorough coverage and use of wetting agents often enhance nutrient uptake from foliar sprays. After the correct dilution has been made, the spray solution should be buffered to a pH of 6-6.5. Foliar sprays of CHE-MAN 5% should not be considered a substitute for soil application but rather a supplement or temporary measure to correct the manganese deficiency. If label instructions are not followed for foliar application, phytotoxicity may occur.
