I thought I post a recipe which is based on PPS-Pro Modified Version of the CSM+B by Edward, the only difference is we wont be using CSM in this recipe, instead we will be using our own chemicals.

"always use Distilled water when making recipe"
There are Two recipe which will add same numbers of ppm, one of them is fully chelated. the chelated one is color coded in red so you don't get confuse.

Recipe #1, Based on 500 ml Solution, 20 ml per 50 gallon

Step 1,

Bottle #1 make 450 ml solution, add the following:

Add 1 gram Ascorbic Acid
Add 0.5 gram Potassium Sorbate
Add 8.6 gm of DTPA Fe (11%)
Add 7.6 gm of Fe Gluconate (12.46%)
Add 1.67 gm of MnSO4.H2O
Add 2.01 gm of H3BO3 (Boric Acid)
Add 1.66 gm of ZnSO4.7H2O

Step 2,
Bottle #2 make 500 ml solution, add the following:

Add 1 gram Ascorbic Acid
Add 0.5 gram Potassium Sorbate
Add 2.04 gm of Na2MoO4.2H2O
Add 5.28 gm of CuSO4.5H2O
Add 0.424 gm of NiSO4.6H2O

Step 3,
after making the Bottle #1 and #2, stir them and wait few minutes and stir them again until fully dissolved, wait few hours. now take 10 ml from Bottle #2 and add it to the Bottle #1, now this will make a 460ml Solution in Bottle #1, add 40 ml Distilled water to Bottle #1 and complete the solution to 500 ml.

Now use the Bottle #1 to dose your tank, 20 ml will add 0.4 ppm Fe in 50 gallon water, adjust your dose as per PPS recommendation

Fe 0.4
Mn 0.1144
Zn 0.08
B 0.0744
Cu 0.00568
S 0.11
Mo 0.00344
Na 0.00164
Ni 0.0004



Recipe #2, Fully Chelated, Based on 500 ml Solution, 20 ml per 50 gallon

Step 1,

Bottle #1 make 450 ml solution, add the following:

Add 1 gram Ascorbic Acid
Add 0.5 gram Potassium Sorbate
Add 9.83 gm of EDTA Fe (13%)
Add 5.6 gm of DTPA Fe (11%)
Add 4.17 Mn EDTA 13%
Add 2.53 gm Zn EDTA 15%
Add 2.01 gm of H3BO3


Step 2,
Bottle #2 make 500 ml solution, add the following:

Add 1 gram Ascorbic Acid
Add 0.5 gram Potassium Sorbate
Add 2.04 gm of Na2MoO4.2H2O
8.9588 gm Cu EDTA 15%
Add 0.424 gm of NiSO4.6H2O


Step 3,
after making the Bottle #1 and #2, stir them and wait few minutes and stir them again until fully dissolved, wait few hours. now take 10 ml from Bottle #2 and add it to the Bottle #1, now this will make a 460ml Solution in Bottle #1, add 40 ml Distilled water and complete the solution to 500 ml.

Now use the Bottle #1 to dose your tank, 20 ml will add 0.4 ppm Fe in 50 gallon water, adjust your dose as per PPS recommendation


Fe 0.4
Mn 0.1144
Zn 0.08
B 0.0744
Cu 0.00568
Mo 0.00344
Na 0.00164
Ni 0.0004


This recipe was designed for use with PPS-Pro or any other system. all the chemicals can be found on the internet or quick search with google, you can decide by yourself where you want to get yours, I get mine from customhydronutrients, MBFerts, Alpha Chemicals, Amazon, Ebay etc.



Both recipes would add the same ppm as mentioned on the PPS-Pro website if you were to dose the Bottle#1 as 1ml per 10 gallon, which will add the following:

ppm

0.10000 Fe
0.02860 Mn
0.01860 B
0.02000 Zn
0.00086 Mo
0.00142 Cu
0.00010 Ni
