PEARS

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

PINENE II is an extender and sticker designed to extend the life of pesticides. It may be used with all pesticide products and soluble fertilizers.

This product forms a durable film that holds a pesticide on the crop foliage. This shield reduces the effects of environmental factors, which may decrease the effectiveness of pesticides.

NOT FOR AQUATIC USE.

This product will not foam, or clog nozzles. It may be applied by aerial, ground or concentrate sprayer. It enhances the initial pesticide application to give complete coverage.

This product prevents the removal of the pesticide from the leaf surface by rainfall and wind. It screens the pesticide spray residue from ultraviolet rays which often cause pesticide degradation. Pesticide volatilization is minimized by the protective shield.

Under most conditions, apply sprays containing this product and allow at least one hour of daylight before an anticipated rain. Sunlight for this time period is required for the protective shield to set.

MIXING DIRECTIONS

To ensure good emulsification, pre-mix this product with water before adding to spray tank. Add this product to the spray tank as the last ingredient, as the spray tank is filling, with the agitator running. Always rinse tank, lines and nozzles with water immediately after spraying. After rinsing, a small amount of sticky residue may remain in the spray tank. This residue can help to prevent rust and corrosion and will not clog nozzles when sprayer is next used. If spray drift sets down on unintended surfaces, it can be removed with soap and water, before the spray residue is dry or with premium grade kerosene after the film has dried. To remove dried deposits from painted car surfaces, use standard tar remover products designed for use on painted car finishes.
