Hortifeeds Citric Acid

Hortifeeds Citric Acid
SummaryProduct Information

For acidification of irrigation water to reduce carbonate deposits and maintain availability of nutrients. Citric acid also has a complexing action on many nutrients which improves their availability, uptake and mobility.

Add citric acid in sufficient quantity to reduce the water pH to between 5.5 and 6.5.

The amount of acid required will vary with the bicarbonate content of the water - see application rate table.

Available as crystals (powder) or as a liquid (50% dilution).
