OSM Sea Mineral: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
Foliar Application: OSM-100 Sea Mineral may be used as a stand-alone mineral supplement application or it can be mixed with other water soluble NPK type fertilizer. When combining with NPK type fertilizers you will see excellent performance and receive a cost saving by reducing the NPK 50%. Since crop type, soil characteristics and moisture delivery vary from field to field
Pre-Plant: Broadcast 25 to 50 pounds per acre, depending on soil type, and till into the soil.
