Foliar Program for Market Gardens

Early Emergence/Transplanting & Repeat every 7-10 Days as needed.
VIGOR-LIG PLUS 1-2 qt/ac (NPK & TRACES to push along young, slow or stressed seedlings)
LIG-TRACE @ 1-2 qt/ac
Pre-flowering or Head/Heart formation & Repeat Every 7-14 Days Till harvest
LIG-CALCIUM + BORON @ 2-3 qt/ac
(Shelf Life, Quality & Packout) – Critical on soft leaf
crops, even more where salt issues are present.
Generally 2-4 applications depending on crop duration.
Where salt issues exist it’s important to monitor irrigation
using flushing methods, ensure annual Gypsum applications
and avoid over applying nitrogen/nitrogen spiking.
Many growers use LIG CALCIUM + B in the fertigation to replace, alternate or complement calcium nitrate based products. Boron is the key to Calcium movement so it’s important to keep boron levels adequate.
