Microdosing for SmartNute and Nutrient Application
Use with liquid starter, in-furrow, 2x2, fertigation, Y-drop and foliar type applications.
FARMERS: When you are making 30 or more gallons of final solution (nutrient inputs + water) add ONE drop of SmartNute for each 30 gallons. First give your bottle a couple of shakes.
For example, if your tank holds 600 gallons of final solution then add 20 drops of SmartNute (600 ÷ 30 gallons per drop = 20 drops). No need to “mix in” SmartNute as it will be ready by the time you reach the field.
If you’re using 6 gallons of nutrients per acre (equals 100 acres for 600 gallon tank), you will now use only 1/6 that amount of nutrients (1 gallon per acre).
So you see, it's as simple as reducing your inputs to 1/6 of your normal nutrient application and making up the difference in water when filling your tank.
For example, at 1/6 and using a 600 gallon tank, fill the tank with 100 gallons of your nutrient components and 500 gallons of water, plus your 20 drops (1 drop per 30 gallons of final solution) of SmartNute. You just saved the cost of 500 gallons of nutrients. At 6 gallons of final solution per acre, your SmartNute cost is less than $54 retail for 100 acres.
Instead of reducing your nutrient application, for higher yield using your current nutrient management plan, you can also add SmartNute to your tank and increase your NPK efficiency and boost micros without adding more nutrients. Remember to use one drop of SmartNute per 30 gallons of final solution.
Keep out of direct sunlight. Avoid placing your SmartNute near electromagnetic waves i.e. cell phones, microwaves, computers, magnets, etc.
When not in use, keep your SmartNute in the aluminum canister inside the plastic envelope to help protect from electromagnetic waves.
With SmartNute you can help reduce ecosystem pollution over 80% including reducing your salts buildup over 80% too. Using less nutrients can also help minimize the corrosive action on your machinery.

Making more than 30 gallons and using foliar:
Your 30 ounces of water in a 32 ounce quart container (with one drop of SmartNute) make 30 gallons of final solution after you include the reduced amount of fertilizer (1/6 to 1/18).
If you are using a boom sprayer, pivot system, etc. and need to make larger amounts of inputs (no need to use a quart container), remember to use one drop of SmartNute in your tank for each 30 gallons of final solution (reduced fertilizer dose + SmartNute + water = final solution).
A one-half ounce bottle of SmartNute has 360 drops that make 10,800 gal. (360 drops X 30 gal. per drop = 10,800 gal.)
When using foliar, test with 1/18 of the fertilizer application you normally use. You can use foliar with a late afternoon, evening, or early morning application with evening (especially after rain) being best. Avoid evening foliar if you have a potential fungi problem. Over 70 degree weather is ideal, but mid-eighties and above can cause problems.
For example, if you're using 3 gallons of liquid fertilizer per acre (or lesser or greater amounts), you will now use only 1/6 that amount to begin. As already noted, you can also bump up your fertilizer inputs by adding SmartNute to your regular application to reach your desired NPK requirement without adding more fertilizer.
SmartNute can be used with herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides when applying your fertilizer inputs.
