BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES FOR APPLICATION

Due to the contact nature of Magister SC, coverage and mite contact is crucial. To ensure optimum coverage of all plant parts, Magister SC should be applied only through correctly calibrated ground application equipment. Coverage is a function of speed and volume, so speed of the sprayer through the application area should not exceed 2.4 km/hr (1.5 mph) when applying in 500 L/ha of water or less. Under conditions of higher mite pressure, a greater spray volume is recommended. Complete coverage of all plant parts is required for optimum performance. Addition of a spreader/sticker non-ionic surfactant at a concentration of 0.25% v/v, may improve performance.

TANK MIXING

• Magister SC is compatible with a number of crop protection products.

• Under heavy pressure apply with an ovicide, or additional MOA miticide.

PACKAGING

• 2 x 9.46 liter case - each jug will treat 3.6 - 5.3 hectares (9-13 acres)
