Final Product Needed
Complete the fields above to calculate the low and high label rates according to the MilStop® SP label. Units of measure can be altered both in the calculator and for final volume of product - please pay special attention to the final units used to apply the proper amount of product.
Total MilStop® SP
When using low volume mist sprayers, use the following guidelines:
- Low volume sprayers have a high degree of efficiency in coverage of leaf and stem surfaces. Therefore, DO NOT apply to the point of runoff or even to the point of observing complete leaf wetness. Excess material may result in phytotoxicity.
- When using a low volume sprayer, first determine the proper application volume by spraying the material in a small area. Test the application on a few plants to assure proper coverage and to assess if phytotoxicity occurs.
When using ultra low volume applicators (foggers), use the following guidelines:
- Ultra low volume sprayers have a high degree of efficiency in coverage of leaf and stem surfaces. Thoroughly cover the plant surfaces but note that spray deposition may not be visible after application.
- When using an ultra low volume sprayer, first determine the proper application volume by spraying the material in a small area. Test the application on a few plants to assure proper coverage. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions carefully
- Properly calibrate equipment regularly.
- Ensure that nozzles are clean and not worn so that correct droplet size is applied. Smaller droplets are more desirable in a fogging situation.
- Ensure that all the material is well mixed so application will be uniform throughout.
- Use the maximum amount of water that a given machine allows to help ensure material is completely mixed with water.
- Consider using a carrier solution appropriate to the type of fogger equipment. This will improve atomization and cause fewer large droplets to fall out in front of the fogger providing more uniform coverage. For Dramm BIO PulsFOG® equipment it is suggested to use NutriFog as a carrier for MilStop.
- Keep nozzle output from directly contacting the plants. Nozzles should not be aimed directly at crop.
- Unlike hydraulic or low volume mist spraying, there should be no visible evidence (leaf wetness) of the application on the plant foliage.
The label is the law. This tool is intended to be supplementary to the label and help with it's interpretation - please refer back to the label to ensure correct application rates and application methods.
