Forestry — Mixing and Application Instructions

Mixing Plantskydd powder concentrate


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.
