That said, we've always been told "the label is the law", and when you apply materials below labeled rate, you are on your own in terms of efficacy. Assume that manufacturer will assume no responsibility for damage if rate applied is below minimum stated on label.
I'm confident that we are close to having the technology available to deliver an accurate dose to our trees that will take account of the many factors that influence the effectiveness of our production enhancing materials. Tree row volume being one component. Past, current and predicted weather, stage of growth, pest density, intended market, etc, etc, all influence optimal target rate of material per acre to be applied.
