What is the application rate for Chandler Organic?

As a soil treatment, Chandler Organic is used at the same rates as Chandler Soil, and we recommend 8 ounces per acre in the row or 12 to 16 ounces per acre when broadcast. For foliar applications, Chandler Organic is used at the same rates you would normally use for Chandler Foliar (about 10 ounces per acre). We also use the same product handling and mixing instructions for Chandler Organic that we recommend for the other liquid products.

Methods of Soil Treatment

Broadcast applications of Organic may be sprayed in a tank-mix with liquid fertilizers or other organic liquids. Also, you can apply the product with starter fertilizer in the seed furrow at planting time or in a band over the row after crop emergence. Finally, Organic may be applied to the soil when side-dressing crops.

Foliar Feeding

The recommended application rate for Chandler Organic depends on the crop and the frequency of application. Chandler Organic may be applied in a tank mix with foliar fertilizers or other organic sprays, and you should use enough water to get adequate coverage of the plant foliage (e.g., 10-20 gallons per acre). In the table below, the recommended application rates and typical timings are stated, and the range of per-acre costs are rounded to the nearest $0.50 and are based on purchases of gallon jugs at our regular retail price. These costs will be lower if you buy in larger volumes (2.5 gallon jugs or 30 gallon drums) or order under our early-season discount programs in the fall (September and October) or winter (December through March).
