Calculate the Weight of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts to make any ppm IBA Rate & Liquid Volume

Each line in the calculator below has it's own calculation.

RE-CALCULATE: If you change the "ppm IBA" or "number of unit volumes" on a line always CLICK the block in front of the "grams" or "ounces" to re-calculate the result.

Calculated Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salt weights (grams and ounces) are shown with two decimal places. Such close weights may only be needed when making very small unit volumes. FOR LARGE VOLUMES ignore the digits after the decimal and round to the nearest whole number.

Select the line for
1) Liquid Volume in liters, ml, gallons, quarts or fluid ounces.
2) WEIGHT of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in GRAMS or OUNCES

ENTER the required ppm IBA rate

(for example: 150 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts)

Preparing a Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts® solution using water
1) Weigh the required amount of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts. Measure by weight not volume.
2) Use tap water at about 65-90F; measure less then the final volume.
3) Mix: dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in the water.
• If precipitation occurs with tap water then dissolve in distilled, demineralized, or filtered water.
• Do not dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in solvents other than water.
4) Add water to the mixing container to bring the solution to the final volume.
5) Apply the solution by the selected method.
6) After use, dispose of the solution as described in the ‘Storage and Disposal’ statements on the label.

• For the Total Immerse and basal methods, dispose of solutions between plant lots to avoid cross contamination.
• Stock solutions can be made in any concentration, to over 100,000 ppm IBA

UNIT CONVERSIONS:
Liquid units are in metric liters and milliters, US gallon, quarts and fluid ounces
[1 gallon (gal) = 3.78litres = 4 quart(qt) = 128 fluid ounces(fl oz).]
Dry units are in metric grams, ounces
[1 ounce (oz av)= 28.34 grams (gm)= 2834 milligram (mg). In US and many other countries, the avoirdupois ounce is used]
