Instructions for Use

There are a number of different times when Lithovit can basically be applied:

  • at the beginning of foliation / the time of bedding out
  • at the time of flowering and
  • during the ripening of the fruit


Lithovit Natural CO2 Foliar Fertilizer may be used once or several times, at most every 3-4 weeks, separately or in combination with a plant protection agent. Minimum dosage: 1 kg/ha as a 0.3% - 0.5% aqueous suspension (300 - 500g of Lithovit per 100 l of water) with a pH of between 6 and 10. It can be applied using an agricultural pesticide sprayer with an agitator or any commercially available garden spray. A wetting agent will increase the effectiveness and reduce spray residue markings.
