Mixing requirements for spraying operations

Mixing requirements for spraying operations

Mixing order is very important to ensure that tank mixed products perform to their potential.

Understanding formulation type and adjuvant type are an important part of getting the mixing order right.

If in doubt about the compatibility of products in a tank mix, contact the manufacturers and conduct a jar test to ensure they will mix.

Key Points

  • Understand what the formulation type is for each product and adjuvant being used.
  • Never bring concentrated products into contact with each other through mixing equipment or in low tank volumes.
  • Know the correct mixing order for every tank mix you use.

Fact Sheet

Changes to herbicide Mode of Action (MoA) names

The global MoA classification system is based on numerical codes which provides infinite capacity to accommodate new herbicide MoA coming to market, unlike the alphabetical codes currently used in Australia.
Farming is becoming increasingly global. Farmers, agronomists and academics around the world are now, more than ever, sharing and accessing information to assist them to grow crops, while managing sustainability issues such as herbicide resistant weeds. It’s important then that the herbicide MoA classification system utilised in Australia be aligned with the global classification system. This will ensure more efficient farming systems into the future and allow Australian farmers and advisors to access the most up-to-date information relating to managing herbicide resistance.
CropLife Australia is working with key herbicide resistance management experts, advisors and the APVMA to ensure farmers and agronomists are aware of the planned changes.
The numerical classification system should be fully implemented by the end of 2024.
