Is Iron dosing needed if you are doing CSM+B

Hi,
Do I need to dose additional iron if I am using CSM+B?
Does anyone know how to mix and dose Iron Chelate from greg watson?
Thanks!

I dose additional iron with my Plantex.

To dose the chelate I mixed one tablespoon (as I recall) in 500 ml of water and dose about 1 ml a week per 20 gallons.

I just dose the CSM (haven't bothered to find any boron) from Greg Watson.

Mix is the same as Rex. I have to dose higher amounts than 1 ml/20 gallons a week. I dose 1 ml of it per day.
