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.
