20% Mn Sulfate
High pH is most often the factor in the yellowing manganese chlorosis often seen in Maples.
Specially formulated, the TreeHelp Maple Manganese Supplement Spike contains a full 20% Manganese Sulfate and a full 16% elemental sulfur, which lowers the pH in the feeding area, creating an environment that assists in the plant's uptake of the essential chlorophyll-producing manganese. The small amount of nitrogen in the Spike also assists with this uptake.
Symptoms of Manganese Deficiency:
Affects the new emerging leaves, manganese deficiency causes yellowing and necrosis between the veins and a reduction in leaf size. As the deficiency becomes severe, the new leaves wither and have a "frizzled" look. If not promptly treated, manganese deficiency is often fatal to the red maple.
