This almond program is intended for informational use only. For the best possible results tailored to meet your needs and soil type, check with your DGC representative for specific recommendations.

Ground Application/Pre-Plant

(30 days before planting)

Normal Soil:

32 oz AIM per acre* (2.5 L/Ha)


*Alkali/Sodium Soil:

64 oz RECLAIM per acre

(5 L/Ha)


Water management and nutrient release.



These water management tools aid in air and water exchange critical to stimulating microorganisms in preparation for planting. They also contain formulated enzyme complexes that stimulate rapid microbial activity.


NOTE: *For pH higher than 6.8 and/or high sodium content. Also good for chemically damaged fields.

At Planting

16 - 32 oz. per acre (1.25-2.5 L/Ha) SEED TREATMENT immediately after planting young trees or seeds.


5 oz. per 100 lbs. (150 mL / 45 kg) if applying directly to seed


Stimulate germination of seed and protection.


Stimulates the beneficial bacteria and fungi that protects the seedling from soil related diseases thus increasing germination.

At Leaf Bud Break

32 oz. FOLIARPLEX per acre sprayed on leaves (2,5 L/Ha)


Stimulate plant nutrient intake and leaf development.



This application will stimulate nutrient retention in preparation for fruit set.

At Fruit Set

32 oz. MICROPLUS per acre sprayed on leaves (2.5 L/Ha)


To set and hold fruit.



At this stage the plants need the beneficial nutrients and trace minerals in MICROPLUS to set and hold fruit. It also enhances the plants ability to withstand cooler temperatures.

Post-Harvest Recovery

32 oz. FOLIARPLEX per acre sprayed on leaves (2.5 L/Ha)


Renew plant health depleted from harvesting.



Plants need renewal of elements used in almond reproduction.

Herbicide Spray Program

Apply 16 fl. oz. phLAME per 100 gallon tank mix with contact herbicides (0.5 L per 375 L).

Fungicide Spray Program

Apply 16 to 32 fl. oz. SS 9 per 100 gallon tank mix with fungicides (0.5 - 1 L per 375 L).

Insecticide Spray Program

Apply 5 to 10 oz SPREADER STICKER per 100 gallon tank mix with insecticides (150 - 300 mL per 375 L).


We strongly recommend using an adjuvant with your spray program. Specialty surfactants (SS 9, SPREADER STICKER, phLAME) have proven cost effective with spray applications of chemicals (fungicides, herbicides, pesticides) to allow lowest label rates with better results. The synergy can add potency and extend the chemical life and have allowed some growers to experiment and get exceptional results with well under label rates.


Please ask your DGC representative for the appropriate product for your needs and grower’s experiences in your area.
