    Chelated iron is usually applied at .5 oz. per gallon.
    What are trying to do. ie: improve turf color, clorotic shrub leaves ?

    i use FeRROMEC AC 15-0-0 and the lable rate is 2-8oz per 1k. is this the same as your lesco? i know lesco this same lable in their brand. i would wait until it warms up before applying.

    Lesco Chelated Iron is recommended to be applied @ 6-9 oz per 1,000 sq. ft. It's on the label on the web-site, look up product #022036. That's where I found my MSDS sheet. Also be careful with this product it does stain walks etc...
