Mixing Plantskydd powder concentrate
Mixing Powder Concentrate & Spray Application – Forestry / Silviculture
Mixing tips for large batches of Plantskydd powder concentrate
* a paint-mixer stir attachment for cordless electric drills is very effective when mixing Plantskydd powder concentrate in 5 gallons pails of water.
* high speed mixing and/or prolonged agitation will produce excessive foam.
* If anti-foamer additive is used, add it to mixture just before pouring into backpack type sprayers.
* once mixed, strain the solution through the strainer included in packaging to remove any undisolved particles.
