(return to previous page by using back arrow)

Over the several years of testing this product, we find that one quart per acre is the most beneficial; however, this was a year most suited for this product and it responded to higher rates. MICRO BOOST is a very ecomonical product to use at a cost of approx $5 per acre. One bushel increase covers your cost!
