      for heavy feeding crops like corn and tomatoes it is safe to use a
      higher concentration of around 15:1 for soil feeding or 20:1 for
      foliar feeding, always foliar feed in the early morning, never when
      the sun is high in the sky as it will burn the leaves

      I wouldn't worry too much about getting any on foliage that you plan
      on eating unless you are consuming lots of pharmaceutical drugs...I
      never had a problem, I drink loads of my urine and I ain't no yogi,
      it's only made me stronger
