Tank Mixes and Mixing Instructions

Tank mixes
  • Dithane Rainshield.
Mixing Instructions
  • Pre-measured water soluble pouches containing 140 g each make handling safe and easy.
  • Do not allow pouches to become wet prior to adding to the spray tank.
  • Do not handle the pouches with wet hands or wet gloves.
  • Always reseal over wrap bag to protect remaining unused pouches.
  • Do not remove water-soluble pouches from over wrap except to add directly to the spray tank.
  • Add the required number of unopened pouches as determined by the dosage recommendations into the spray tank with agitation.
  • Depending on the water temperature and the degree of agitation, the pouches should dissolve completely within approximately 5 minutes from the time they are added to the water.
  • Sprayers should be properly calibrated and capable of uniform application at recommended water volumes. Good spray tank agitation is required.
  1. Fill the spray tank with water to 1/2 the total spray volume required. 
  2. Start agitation. 
  3. Add required amount of product per hectare. 
  4. Continue mixing and agitation while filling the spray tank to the required volume.
