Apply at varying rates depending on purpose or desired result. For general soil conditioning, apply 2 quarts per acre directly to soil in fall and early spring. May also be applied at the same rate at pre-plant, planting, or for Residue Management. Apply 1 quart per acre when foliar applying with liquid nitrogen or other fertility products. For crop specific application information, see crop section of the catalog.
The thing I have seen with Monty’s products that I like a lot is reducing wheat burn. We do a lot of top dressing in wheat in North Carolina with liquid products like 30% UAN. Often times when it’s heating up, that wheat is growing rapidly and is very susceptible to leaf burn. I like to put in a quart of Monty’s Liquid Carbon to an acre and it improves that plant’s growth and resists that leaf burn that we so often see with UAN.

“I am sold on the Liquid Carbon product – it works very well. I noticed a difference in the tilth of the soil. It helps when no-till planting. The larger root system helps get the most out of the fertilizer I applied.”

> Monty’s on Tobacco < “Using Monty’s has gained us about 200-300 pounds per acre; last season my son used it and raised 3,400 pounds and the plot right next to it only raised 2,900 without Monty’s.”
