Soil Amendment: This product works best if mixed into your potting media or soil prior to planting. Add 1 lb per 20 sq ft for raised beds and garden rows or 1 cup per cu ft of bagged soil.

Root Drench: If your plants are already potted, add to dechlorinated water (1/2 cup per gallon) and root drench, or top dress and water thoroughly.

Foliar Spray: Use 1-2 tsp per gallon of dechlorinated water and apply weekly to leaves. Do NOT spray in direct sunlight.

Grower’s Tip:
Recent studies suggest that chitin signals a defense response in plants causing them to strengthen cell walls, produce larger stalks and leaves, and excrete metabolites that ward off pests and disease fungi.
