GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

This product is a spray additive for use with most herbicides as recommended on individual

product labels. It increases herbicide activity by providing better wetting, absorption and spray

coverage.

For foliar active herbicides the product should be applied to the point where leaves and stems are

wet. Avoid causing excessive run-off. When treating hairy or waxy leafed plants, the addition of

Distribution Wetter 1000 at higher rates will increase herbicide activity.

Mixing Instructions

Half fill the spray tank with water. With the agitation system engaged, add the required amount of

the herbicide, followed by the required amount of Distribution Wetter 1000 and finally top up with

the remainder of the water.
