Recommended application rates

For root stimulation, early growth and bunch stretching: Foliar sprays at 2 L/ha at 5 - 10 cm shoot growth.
Optional application 14 days later

For improved berry size & quality: Foliar sprays of minimum 3 L/ha after set. Repeat 2 to 3 times at 10 to 14 day intervals

For improved colour & sugar content: Foliar sprays at 3 L/ha at start of berry softening. Repeat 14 days later

Important: Increase Kelpak rate to maintain 1:300 dilution when water volume above 1000 L/ha is used.
Use 4 - 5 L/ha with electrostatic applicators.
Foliar sprays can be substituted with 1% bunch dips or directed bunch sprays. May be applied with gibberellic acid and/or forchlorfenuron applications
