General Information

An intense, fast acting non ionic soil surfactant for severely hydrophobic soils, which can be used either as a spot treatment for problem areas, as a pre treatment to a soil wetting programme, or in boom spray equipment applied at low rates, often in a broad acre situation. This product can also be used for dew control.

 

Application Rate

  • Standard rate: 800ml - 3L/ha. Use the lower rate for frequent applications every two weeks.
  • Pre-treatment: 2.5L/ha for pre treatment to a soil wetting programme.
  • Dew suppressant: 3 - 5L/ha with 1000 - 5000 litres of water. Use the higher rate for longer term control. (3L/ha will give approximately 2 days control).
  • Spot treatment: 10 - 50ml/10 litres of water applied by knapsack sprayer as often as required.
  • Water rate: Use a minimum of 500 litres but preferably 1000 litres water per hectare. The higher the application rate the higher the water rate. Apply the first application mid spring (September) and continue through to autumn (or when autumn rains resume).

Caution: Like many soil surfactants, this product can be phytotoxic when used at high rates. We recommend thorough watering in by irrigation or rainfall when using this product.
