Turf

Re-entry Period

  • General Public: DO NOT allow public re-entry into treated areas until the spray has dried.
  • Grounds Staff / Professional Operators - Low exposure activities: DO NOT allow entry into treated areas until the spray has dried. When prior entry is necessary, wear chemical resistant gloves and footwear.
  • High exposure activities: DO NOT allow entry into treated areas for 4 days for high exposure activities such as hand weeding, unless wearing cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) and chemical resistant gloves.

Precautionary Statements

Personal Protective Equipment

  • Harmful if swallowed. Harmful if inhaled. May irritate the eyes. Avoid contact with eyes. DO NOT inhale spray mist. When opening the container, preparing the product for use and using the product wear: - cotton overalls buttoned to the neck and wrist (or equivalent clothing) - elbow length chemical resistant gloves - half face piece respirator with organic vapour/gas cartridge or canister Wash hands after use. After each day’s use, wash gloves, respirator (if rubber, wash with detergent and warm water) and contaminated clothing.

Tank mixing

Add the required amount of product directly to the spray tank and mix well. AGADOR mixes completely with water and should not be tank mixed with other fertilisers as it contains an iron chelate.

Non-ionic Surfactants: Use Agral® Spray Adjuvant (600 g ai/L) at 0.42% v/v or 420 mL/100 L spray mix. Alternatively use other non-ionic surfactants (1000 g ai/L formulations) at 0.25% v/v or 250 mL/100 L spray mix.

Water volume

Nematodes: For best results use very coarse droplets (white 08 nozzles) and total application volume of approximately 1000 L/ha. Preferably spray onto wet or dewy grass. Irrigate with 3 to 6 mm of water commencing within 1 hour of application.

Mites: Application volume for Couchgrass Mite should be adequate to ensure thorough and even coverage of the turf leaves and penetration into the crowns. Ideal application volume should be 350 to 500 L/ha. For best results use minimum coarse droplets (eg purple 025 or red 04 nozzles). In higher cut turf (≥15 mm) a significant spray shielding effect can occur, impacting negatively on spray penetration and even coverage at low application volumes.

  • In a transport emergency dial 000, Police or Fire Brigade.
