CROPSOILFOLIAR
Sugar beet, red beet1. Broadcast: After soil preparation at rate of 8 - 10 L/ha, before sowing.
2. Band application: After sowing at rate of 2L/ha.
First application 10 – 12 weeks after sowing at a rate of 2L/ha. Second application at same dosage 2 weeks later.
Other rooted crops:
Potato, carrot, onion
1. Broadcast: After soil preparation at rate of 8 - 10 L/ha, before sowing.
2. Band application: After sowing at rate of 2L/ha.
Used at a rate of ½ L/ha when plants are 20 – 25 cm high. Repeat same dosage 15 – 20 days later.
In orchards:
Pome & stone fruit, olive, citrus, grape, hazel­nut, banana
When vegetative growth begins, a mixture of 25 ml BLACKJAK plus 10 L of water can be applied for each tree or if a drip system exists, can be applied at a rate of 2 – 4 L/ha together with drip fertilizer, 3 – 4 times during crop cycle.Can be applied with foliar fertilizers, PGR’s or pesticides at a rate of 50 cc in 100 L of water and sprayed directly on the leaves at beginning of veg. growth. Can be repeated 20 days later at same dosage.
Cotton, corn, wheat, sunflowerApplied to the soil as above (1 – 2). Also can be used in irrigation water of dripping systems at a rate of 2,5 L/ha. Repeat 5 – 6 times in season.When plants reach 20 – 25 cm height: 50 cc/100 L water in combination with leaf fertilizers, PGR’s or pesticides. Can be repeated 15 – 20 days later at same dosage.
Vegetables:
Tomato, cucumber, pepper, eggplant, beans, melon
In transplanted crops, seedling should be irrigated immediately after transplanting with a solution containing 200 ml Blackjak in 100 L water. In greenhouses, can be applied with drip irrigation systems and applied immediately after planting at the rate of 300 – 500 cc/1000 square meters and then every 3 – 4 weeks during the growing season.Used with foliar fertilizers, PGR’s or pesticides at a rate of 50 cc/100 L water when the plants are 20 – 25 cm high. Repeat same dosage 20 days after, if necessary.

Other applications:
1) Soaking seeds prior to planting:
a) Small seeds (wheat, barley, oats)
b) Large seeds (cotton, potato, onion)
a) 24 hours prior to sowing, soak the sacks of seeds (normally 100 kg of seeds per sack) in a solution that contains 500 cc BLACKJAK per 100 liters water. Normally promotes quicker emergence (up to 4 days earlier)
b) Same as above but soak seeds in solution containing 250 cc BLACKJAK per 100 liters of water
2) In combination with iron chelates (EDDHA 6 % Iron)250 cc BLACKJAK + iron producers recommended rate of their iron chelate per 1000 m2 applied via drip irrigation normally results in:
a) quicker uptake of the chelate
b) quicker curing of the iron chlorosis
3) Mixed with foliar fertilizersBLACKJAK used at rate of 50cc per 100 liters of water
4) As buffer 1n spray tank to reduce pHBLACKJAK used at rate of 50cc per 100 liters of water

Mixing instructions:
SHAKE THE BLACKJAK CONTAINER WELL BEFORE OPENING. Fill the spray tank half full with water, then pour the BLACKJAK in to the tank at the recommended rate. Add the leaf fertilizers and then plant protection products to be used. Agitate the solution when topping off the tank with water – and then spray

Storage:
Keep BLACKJAK in the original container. Do not store below 0º or above 40º. When stored under normal storage conditions the product will keep its physical, chemical and biological properties for at least 3 years
