If you are trying to be all "organic", use seaweed in all your waterings and sprays.  This will provide some Copper and Zinc, etc.  Some kinds of rock dusts would also help.  Some chelated products and some complexed products are also labeled for use in organic production.

I don't see any indication of Mango Bacterial Black Spot (MBBS). 
[Bacterial black spots on other plants are usually other species of bacteria, which tend to be host specific, so we should not leave off the word "mango" in the name.]

I've foliage fed with southern ag citric micro-nutrients and sul-mag-po to the soil cause that's what i have. not all 'organic' at all.

You're like me, you use the best approach keeping your personal health in mind and not taking risks.  I have had no luck with Southern Ag foliar treatments.  I have with Keyplex 350DP.  That is some miracle stuff especially with chlorosis prone material like Flying Dragon citrus rootstock which has a terrible time uptaking or processing micros.

BTW, if you're not adding a surfactant to your sprays, you're wasting your time.

Mark, you mean any product or just some of them? For example, we must add surfactant to seaweed or phytohormones too?

No, only sprays - herbicides, pesticides.  It's a spreader-sticker and the product becomes rainfast.  I use NIS aka non-ionic surfactant.
