Yates Citrus Cure Zinc and Manganese Chelate is an easy to use liquid trace element mix. Recommended as a foliar application, this delivers zinc and manganese directly to the deficient leaves for faster results. Foliar applications also result in much lower zinc and manganese additions into the soil when compared to traditional soil drench applications, resulting in less wastage and lower risk of soil toxicity. Corrects zinc and manganese deficiencies, which often occur in citrus trees. Zinc deficiency is indicated by yellowing in new leaf growth. Leaves are small, narrow and appear bunched together. Manganese deficiency is indicated by yellowing between the veins of youngest leaves in early spring. The veins remain broadly green.
- Works differently from other chelates
- Releases nutrients gradually to minimise leaf burn
- A targeted solution for fast results
- Sticks firmly to foliage and is rain-fast in 2-3 hours

How to Use
Directions for Use
Mainly CITRUS Application – alleviate zinc and manganese deficiency symptoms. Method Foliar Spray Recommended – Spray to lightly wet the leaves, before runoff. NOT for stone fruit. Rate – Mix 20-30ml in 1L water. Apply with garden sprayer. Frequency – Every 2-4 weeks. Timing – Apply when symptoms appear, reapply as necessary. Area – 1L/15m2 depending on size of plant canopy. STONE FRUIT Application – alleviate zinc and manganese deficiency symptoms. Method – Soil drench only recommended for stone fruit. Rate – Mix 15-30ml in 5L water, apply with watering can. Frequency – Every 2-4 weeks. Timing – Apply when symptoms appear, reapply as necessary. Area – 5L/5m2 apply to moist soil around plant. Apply to leaves as a fine mist. For optimum results reassess plant symptons every few weeks to decide if further applications are necessary. Begin treatment as soon as symptons become visible or early in the growing season if a deficiency is known to exist. It is best to apply many smaller amounts rather than a single large amount.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

DO NOT over apply spray leading to run off. Do not apply during flowering. Do not mix with nitrogen fertilisers,as this may increase the risk of leaf burn. Always apply to moist soil. Do not apply when maximum temperature is expected to reach above 25°C or if the plant is suffering moisture stress. Apply during early morning or late afternoon when evaporation will be less.
