DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

This product can be used where the addition of a surfactant or self-emulsifying oil is required

or recommended on an agricultural chemical label.

APPLICATION RATE:

Under normal conditions where an improvement in herbicide penetration is required use this

product at the rate of 0.1%, that is 100mL/100L spray solution.

In unfavourable conditions such as very cold weather, dry dusty conditions or if the plants to

be sprayed has hairy or waxy leaf increase the rate to 0.5%, that is 500mL/100 spray solution.

The higher rate should also be used when applying to dense tall vegetation.

If the product is to be used for a reduction in pH of the spray water use a rate to give an 0.1%

dilution of the final water volume in the spray tank.
