Spraying with Minors and the Rain
« on: July 09, 2018, 01:45:43 PM »
So last night around 6pm after seeing the forecast was 10% chance of rain I went out and mixed up some southern ag spray that contained the minor elements and sprayed the new flushes on my Mango trees and also hit my citrus trees as well.

So yeah, the 10% didn't hold up and we had a good inch of rain which started around 830pm or so.

My question is do i need to respray tonight, or did the 2 hours provide enough drying time for the leaves to soak in the benefits of the spray?

Also - wondering if i'm betting doing a root drench too considering its raining, well, every day as most of you know.

thanks

I have been spraying twice a month around the 1st and 15th of each month.
If it rained within 2 hours I would do it again.
