What is the application rate for Chandler Foliar?

The recommended application rate for Chandler Foliar depends on the crop and the frequency of application. Apply Chandler Foliar with enough water to get adequate coverage of the plant foliage, and we generally recommend 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).

Crop Application Rate Cost per acre Comments on Timing
Corn (all types) 8-12 ounces per acre $7.00 to $11.00 We have had some success with early applications at the 3rd to 5th leaf stage, but late-season applications (just before tasseling to kernel set) provide more consistent and larger corn yield responses. Many users include Chandler Foliar when applying fungicides on corn.
Soybeans 6 ounces per acre banded over the row or 10 ounces per acre in a broadcast application $5.50 to $9.00 Yield results have been good with early applications (3rd leaf) or later applications (near flowering). Some people add Chandler Foliar to their postemergence chemicals for a one-pass early application.
Wheat, oats, rye, and other small grains 8 ounces per acre at the 2nd to 3rd leaf stage. For winter wheat, apply another 6 ounces per acre in the spring at the beginning of new plant growth. For spring wheat, apply another 6 ounces per acre at the Feekeā€™s stage 8 (flag leaf). $5.50 to $12.50 Many users include Chandler Foliar with their first spring insecticide application.
Alfalfa or other hay 10 ounces per acre $9.00 per cutting Apply Chandler Foliar after each cutting when there is enough new foliage to accept the spray. Many users also treat new seedlings after they emerge and begin to form a canopy.
Cover crops, grass fields or pasture 8-10 ounces per acre $7.00 to $9.00 Apply Chandler Foliar when there is enough new foliage to accept the spray. For pastures, Chandler Foliar treatments after each rotation help the plants to recover from grazing.
