The nutrient ratio for this looks far off from the 5-1-3 ratio I see you often recommend.  Is there something particular about this formula that caught your eye?

I have been using Jacks HPF when I do foliar feeding.  I could never find a clear answer on whether this is a good idea or not because it does have some iron content.

I wonder if the high level of potassium would aid in winter hardiness.  The Fertilome company used to sell a product called "Frost Pruf & Fruit Booster" that was a potassium foliar spray. They have discontinued it. It gave a couple of degrees more hardiness to citrus.  Helpful when plants are young and more susceptible to the occasional mid 20 degree freezes we get on occasion here on the upper Gulf Coast of Texas.

Brian, yes 5-1-3 in is a perfect formula for fertilizing citrus.   I thought the the PolyKPhos used as a foliar and seed treatment look interesting.
