A highly-complexed formulation of manganese purposely formulated to encourage rapid leaf uptake and plant availability. Manganese is an essential plant micronutrient important as an activator of over 35 plant enzymes involved in several processes, particularly photosynthesis.
Because manganese is involved in substances affecting a broad range of plant metabolic function, sufficient levels increase tolerance against environmental stress, such as cold and drought, and increase plant resistance to pathogen attack; particularly the disease Take-all Patch Gaeumannomyces graminis, as part of an integrated turf management approach.

Apply evenly, avoid overlapping or missing areas, using a suitable calibrated sprayer.
If there is no rain within 2 days of application irrigate the treated area thoroughly. Do not apply in hot, dry weather or frosty conditions.
Half fill the sprayer with clean water. Add concentrate as required and mix thoroughly whilst adding remaining water.

Chelate – pronounced “Key-late” – is derived from the Greek word χηλή, (chēlē) meaning claw because the chelating molecule lies around the central molecule like the claws of a lobster. Practically, a chelating agent is an organic molecule which in simple terms encapsulates a plant nutrition molecule, protecting it from precipitation which would make the nutrient unavailable. Ions encapsulated within a chelating agent are far more likely to be absorbed into the plant via the roots and leaf tissue due to changes to the chelated molecules surface properties. It is this which results in greater efficiency of the applied nutrient.
