Kelpak trials on citrus in California show positive yield increases as well as other benefits:

  • Improves establishment of nursery trees
  • Better fruit mass
  • Better yields
  • Improves new growth in spring
  • Improves recovery after harvest

Recommended application rates

Established trees: 0.2% (26 fl oz/100 gal) foliar spray applied 3 times between white tip to full bloom. Optional 4th application at fruit set

Post harvest spray: 0.2% (26 fl oz/100 gal) with nitrogen application and repeated 14 days later for recovery of heavy fruit bearing

Tree establishment: Apply 1-2 qt of a 1% Kelpak solution (1 gal in 100 gal water) as a soil drench directly after plant or drench the nursery bag with the solution directly before plant-out

For better tree development apply foliar sprays of 2 qts. Kelpak in 250 gal. water with 3 to 4 week intervals during early growth
