Application Dilution Ratio Activated MC to Dechlorinated Water Dilution Example How to Use
Soil Treatment
Mix into irrigation or spray tank.
1 gallon per acre
A good, moderate goal is to apply 40 gallons of Activated SCD BioAg Mother Culture per acre per year. If using an irrigation system, you can apply 1-3 gallons per acre per week, depending on how long your growing season is. If using spraying equipment, mix 1-3 gallons into your spray tank, diluted with enough water per care to ensure even coverage, and apply 5-8 times during the growing season. For aggressive treatment, a maximum of 60 gallons per acre per year can be applied.
Foliar Feed
Mix into irrigation or spray tank
1.5 – 3 gallons per acre
Mix 1.5-3 gallons per acre into your spray tank, diluted with enough water to ensure even coverage. Activated BioAg Mother Culture is best applied as part of your foliar nutrient program, once per week throughout your growing season.
Orchard
Mix into irrigation or spray tank
10 gallon per acre
Mix 10 gallons or more of SCD BioAg Mother Culture into your spray tank, diluted with enough water per acre to ensure even coverage (typically 10-60 gallons per acre, per season). Note: Do not spray during blossoming/fruiting or blooms/fruit may drop.
Lawns
1:1000
¾ tsp. per gallon
Apply dilution as a spray or as an additive to watering system each time you water.
Seed Soak
1:1000
¾ tsp. per gallon
Soak small seeds: 5-10 minutes; Soak medium seeds: 10-20 minutes; Soak large seeds: 20-30 minutes. Continue to spray seeded area monthly with dilution during crop growth.
Trees and Flowering Plants
1:1000
¾ tsp. per gallon
Spray soil and foliage with dilution during every season. Do not spray blooms or they may drop. To prepare soil before seeding, apply 3 weeks before. Add dilution monthly while watering. Apply to soil when preparing for the fall season.
