This is a really good product. I'm going to assume you will apply this foliar. I recommend folks starting at a low rate and go up until you like the results. Start at 0.1oz of Fe/ksqft and try not to go above 0.4oz of Fe/ksqft.

Since your product nis 6% iron, to get 0.1oz, you will need 1.66oz. Now to covert to grams, 47g/ksqft (to get 0.1oz of Fe/ksqft). This will be around 50g per 100 sqm. If the results are too weak, then in two weeks go to 100g/ 100 sqm.

Thank you @g-man. How did you get 50g per sqm? Did you mean 50g per 100 sqm?
