METHODS OF APPLICATION

Hand Application

This product may also be applied with hand-held equipment or with backpack sprayer. Apply as a coarse spray directed downward at the top of the stalk from 6 to 8 inches above the top leaves. Low tank pres-sure is required, and in no case should more than 20 to 25 pounds per square inch (psi) be used.

Powered Spray Equipment

Broadcast Application: When applying as a broadcast spray or straight boom application, use one nozzle directed over the center of the row and one nozzle directed over the center of the row-middle (TG-3, TG-5 full cone tips or equivalent). Maintain a coarse spray using 25 to 35 psi boom pressure. By using TG-3 spray tips, spraying at 25 to 35 psi pressure and operating at a speed of 1.5 to 3 mph, apply in a minimum of 50 gal-lons of diluted emulsion per acre of Tobacco. By using TG-5 spray tips, spraying at 25 to 35 psi pressure and operating at a speed of 3 to 5 mph,

apply a minimum of 50 gallons of diluted emulsion per acre of Tobacco. Apply the diluted product to Tobacco as a coarse spray from a height of 12 to 16 inches above the top of the stalk.

Directed Application (3 Nozzles): When applying as a directed spray, use three nozzles per row (TG-3, TG-5 full cone tips or equivalent). Direct one TG-5 nozzle downward over the center of the row and TG-3 nozzles (9 inches on each side) directed at or slightly above the top of the stalk. Keep boom pressure at 20 to 25 psi and never exceed 30 psi. By using TG-3, TG-5 spray tips, spraying at 20 to 25 psi pressure and operating at a speed of 2.5 to 3 mph, apply a minimum of 50 gallons of diluted emulsion per acre of Tobacco. Apply the diluted product to Tobacco as a coarse spray from a height of 12 to 16 inches above the top of the stalk. Use Precautions: If allowed to stand for extended periods of time, the diluted emulsion may separate. Always remember to mix well immedi-ately before using and maintain agitation during application. Equip all sprayers with a pressure regulator and a pressure gauge.
