GENERAL

INSTRUCTIONS:

ARMOTIIIN BLOSSOM TIIINNER dessicates blossoms and prevents them from setting provided it is applied

at the correct

time.

Late application may dessicate flower petals but

will

affect

pollination and setting.

Early application may lead to over thinning

flowers have opened.

Count the blossoms open and closed on a sample

ensure that the timing is correct.

Some leaf burning may occur but

this is normally slight

and temporary and tree

conditions at flowering do not favour pollination; ie cool wet weather with few pollinators about,

do not use

this product, as over-thinning may result.

Pollination and fruit set are affected by many factors and combinations of factors, many

which are not well

understood.

Field research has shown that ARMOTIIIN can be a great assistance with crop load management

when

used

according to the directions for use but under or over thinning may occur from time to time.

MIXING:
