    1.68g of Plantex CSM+B will raise the Fe concentration in 29g of water by 1 mg/l (or 1ppm).

    Check out the Fertilator at APC!

    I do routinely ... somewhere between 1.0 and 2.0 ... given the reliability of the Iron test kits, I don't think I know to within any degree of precision what it actually is ...
