Tank mixing

Add the required amount of SPINNER to clean water in half-filled spray tank with the agitator or by-pass in operation. Maintain agitation while filling tank with remainder of water. Agitate whilst spraying.

Mixing and spraying

DO NOT apply with aircraft or through any type of irrigation equipment. Ensure even application in order to achieve even disease control. Avoid overlapping sprays. Ensure that boom height for broadcast application does not exceed 50 cm above the leaf blades of the turf. Avoid application under conditions when uniform coverage cannot be obtained or when spray drift may occur.

Water volume

Soil Insects: Application volumes for soil insects (African Black Beetle, Argentinian Scarab, June Beetle, Argentine Stem Weevil and Billbug) should be as high as possible (700 to 1000 L/ha) to ensure placement close to the soils surface. Use nozzles that produce very coarse to extremely coarse droplets (eg Air Induction 08 nozzles). Preferably spray onto wet or dewy turf. Irrigate with at least 3 mm of water commencing within 1 hour of application.

Surface Insects: Application volume for leaf and crown feeding insects (Argentine Stem Weevil, Cutworm and Armyworm) should be adequate to ensure thorough and even coverage of the turf leaves and penetration to the crowns. Total application volume should be 300 to 500 L/ha. Use coarse droplets (eg Air Induction flat fan 025 to 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.
