L-CBF BOOST™ Application Rates

SYSTEMS

Starter Fertiliser

L-CBF BOOST™ can be mixed directly with your liquid starter fertiliser at a ratio of 3:1 or greater. Landowner Liquid Fertiliser has a range of starter fertilisers to meet your requirements, please ask QLF Agronomy for more details.

Liquid Fertiliser Systems

L-CBF BOOST™ can be mixed directly with your liquid fertiliser. Typically mix at 3-5% of volume of liquid fertiliser to be applied. It can be either decanted into the induction hopper whilst filling or drawn straight into the tank after filling with liquid fertiliser.

Solid Fertiliser Systems

L-CBF BOOST™ can be applied with pre or post-emergence herbicides at 10-20l/ ha per hectare per application. It can also be added in with each fungicide spray at 3-5 litres per hectare. Although L-CBF BOOST™ is compatible with most chemicals, it is sensible to carry out a jar test first, or call QLF Agronomy to discuss your program.

APPLICATION ADVICE

Adding to sprayer

  • L-CBF BOOST™ must be applied in twice its volume with water; i.e. 2 parts water to 1 part L-CBF BOOST™.
  • If applying with a pesticide, check compatibility with L-CBF BOOST™ in small container prior.
  • Decant or pipe straight into the induction hopper (no filter) when filling sprayer, or draw straight into tank after filling.
  • Use your standard filter and nozzles as you would for your typical application.

Please consult with your agronomist, do a jar test or call QLF Agronomy for more information.

STORAGE

L-CBF BOOST™ is a free flowing, concentrated product that thickens slightly the colder it gets. As soon is added to water and/or liquid fertiliser it is easily sprayed. Here are a few guidelines to help you when using BOOST™.

  • Store above freezing; ideally indoors IBC’s.
  • Loosen IBC cap to allow L-CBF BOOST to breath.
  • L-CBF BOOST™ will need agitation stored for more than 3 weeks.

L-CBF BOOST™ can be applied to all crops, as we are primarily looking to apply to the soil to enhance the microbial status, and improve fertiliser and nutrient efficiency. For information on crops not listed below please call QLF Agronomy to discuss in more detail.
