Manganese plays an important role in photosynthesis. It also promotes the uptake of nitrate. High soil pH and too much available Iron can reduce Manganese availability. Over-irrigation or waterlogged conditions are also detrimental to Manganese availability. Manga Mate is an organically chelated form of Manganese that will improve foliar uptake of Manganese to correct deficiencies.
Foliar: Do not exceed a 1% solution in high volume sprays and no more than 3% concentration in low volume sprays under 50l/ha.

Vine crops: 1.0 -2.0 litres/ha pre-flower and post fruit set.
Broadacre crops: 1.0 – 2.5 litres/ha. Early growth stages. Apply when leaf area is sufficient to intercept spray.
Nursery plants: 0.5% Solution giving full leaf coverage as required.
Apply as required but do not exceed 10 litres/ha per application. Several applications may be required.
