    I am trying Agri plex, just tried it on my lawn this evening and had a lot of trouble getting it to disolve. Any suggestions?

    This is why I am a fan of chelates in wettable powder form. Liquid concentrates do not stay stable. A hot warehouse or opening a bottle, then storing the rest will cause them to come out of solution. Only thing I can suggest is shaking the bottle well, then dispensing into a pail partially full of water if mixing for a small sprayer or a tank sprayer I/2 full with the agitator running furiously.

    I would have used the dry products per your suggestions but I could not find any suppliers in my area. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

    Any one else who uses liquid micro/iron products have trouble getting them to disolve? If so any tips? This product I am trying is like a thick syrup that will not break down even with very hot water.
