ArborPlex (14-4-5) is an easy to use, liquid nutrient solution designed to promote optimum tree and shrub health. Slowly available nitrogen is supplied from a urea-triazone solution, which provides consistent, extended feeding without causing unwanted growth spurts. Additionally, by feeding slowly, ArborPlex will not create a root/shoot imbalance. The
phosphorus from Enviro P provides rapid uptake and longer soil availability. Phosphorus enhances root development while also improving stress tolerance and plant hardiness. Potassium is supplied as potassium hydroxide (KOH), which is a superior source due to its high solubility and low salt index. ArborPlex also contains fully chelated micronutrients to enhance color and improve deficiency symptoms. Organic acids are used to keep nutrients available in the soil solution longer for improved uptake. ArborPlex is an ideal, complete solution to improve tree and ornamental color and vigor without unwanted shoot growth. The chloride-free formula provides high quality results with low burn potential.

Application Instructions:
ArborPlex can be applied through soil drench, root injection or foliar feeding. It may be applied alone or tank mixed with other products. One gallon of ArborPlex (14-4-5) contains 1.48 lbs. of nitrogen, 0.42 lbs. of P2 O5 , and 0.53 lbs. of K2 O. Refer to the table below to determine the volume of fertilizer to apply to achieve the desired amount of nitrogen. Shake well before using.

Root Injection:
Inject a nutrient solution of ArborPlex and water into the soil where the feeder roots occur. This typically is 4 to 12 inches deep in the soil. Begin injection 2 feet from the base of thetree, and work in a grid pattern away from the tree to approximately 2 feet from the drip line. Determine the amount of fertilizer desired based on the nitrogen chart above and mix with at least 5 gallons of water per caliper inch at breast height.

Foliar Feeding:
To correct deficiencies that may occur during the season, mix 2 to 3 quarts of ArborPlex with 100 gallons of water. Spray the mixture onto the foliage until it begins to drip off. Do not foliar feed during drought conditions or when air temperature exceeds 85°F.

Perform a standard “jar test” to check compatibility with other products before mixing.

Handling and Storage:
Store between 40°-120° F. Avoid direct heat or fire. Decomposition may occur at high temperatures. Avoid freezing. Keep out of reach of children. Refer to product SDS for additional safety instruction.
