Field Application Notes:

•  TrichoGuard™ should be added to the tank last after all other inputs have been diluted.

•  Foliar spray early morning or late afternoon in the cool of the day with a Delta T between 2 and 8 (Delta T is used as an indicator for the best possible spraying conditions. More at http://www.bom.gov.au/info/leaflets/Pesticide-Spraying.pdf ). If unsure of Delta T don’t apply in hot or windy conditions. Apply to point of run off for best results. Use medium to coarse nozzles.

•  Do not apply below 5 °C.

•  Apply at your normal water rates per hectare.

•  TrichoGuard™ is not compatible with biocidal chemicals. Do not mix with fungicides / bactericides or toxic chemicals as contains live organisms.

•  Spray tanks and equipment in contact with microbes must be clean to prevent the proliferation of contaminants.

•  TrichoGuard™ may need filtered to prevent equipment blockages. We recommend a 100 micron on the spray or injection tank.

•  Use clean non-chlorinated water for best results.
