Basic Balance 20-7-10

Slow Release – Low Salt – Chloride Free – Suspension Type Formula

Contains slow release N. Recommended for soils with pH 7 and higher.

Elemental sulfur, citric acid, and humic acid to reduce pH and condition the soil. A high percentage of both FEDTA and FEDDHA iron to correct iron chlorosis.

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 3 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 good rule of thumb would be 150 gals over 2000 sq. ft.

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 1000 sq. ft.
