DOGGETT'S BASIC BALANCE is formulated for the professional. Because of it’s slow release N content, and the elemental sulfur, it does not dissolve completely, but with a strong agitation remains in suspension. Therefore it should be used with power spraying equipment with good agitation.
Injection holes should be 4 to 6 inches deep starting out from the main trunk or stem, and then spaced approximately 3 ft. apart on a grid or in concentric circles. A site judgement should be made to determine what the entire root area (injection area) should be, however, a rule of thumb would be 150 gals over 2000 sq. ft.
|Lbs. of Basic Balance||per gals. of water|
Following the grid method outlined you should inject 16 oz. of fertilizer solution at each point.
To Calibrate: We suggest that you discharge your tree feeding needle into a measured vessel noting the time it takes to discharge 16 ozs. This will probably take approx. 3 seconds. Use the same count and cadence when injecting into the soil.
Trunk Diameter Rate of Application: Use same dilution rates shown in table. Apply the dilute solution at the rate of 5 Gals. per inch trunk diameter (DBH). Using the grid or concentric circle technique, inject 75 gals. per 1,000 sq. ft.
