Hi,
I've read a few posts saying how to supplement Iron in the tank water,but not much on foliar feeding.Only that it was possible.
Could someone explain how much chelated Iron 7% EDDHA to put into 500ml of deionized water (for foliar spraying) & how often to apply,so not to cause toxicity problems please.Thanks

If you have EDDHA I would advise keeping it for putting in the water as its not as easily sourced

The most common foliar iron is the EDTA which can be found everywhere

The product I have is 13% and for fruit / veg its 24grams in 10 Litres of water

Application try once a week for 4 weeks or until you see a change in the new leaves then as required

As with everything in Aquaponics do "less sooner" just make it part of your maintenance program
