AERIAL APPLICATION - STRAIGHT BACK

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION

POINTBLANK WM is an effective, easy-to-use adjuvant for deposition improvement and drift retardation in spraying operations. POINTBLANK WM is designed for general use in standard ground and aerial applications and is fully compatible with a wide variety of spray configurations including those with air induction and other specialized drift-reduction nozzles. Further, POINTBLANK WM is compatible in tank-mix applications with broad spectrum of crop protection pesticides, including the complete range of all branded and generic glyphosate formulations.

PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS

The degree of drift hazard varies with the type of pesticide, application conditions, and vegetation near the sprayed area. Consult your local agricultural advisor. Remember, pesticide drift is no accident. Sound application technology must be followed when spraying pesticides. POINTBLANK WM can improve deposition of pesticides in the target swath and can retard, but not totally eliminate drift.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Dosages may be adjusted to compensate for environmental conditions or mechanical factors. Lower dosages may be used when spraying under calm winds, slow application speeds, low pressures, and lower boom heights with nozzles closer to the target. The greater the shear on the spray boom nozzle head the greater the spray droplet fragmentation which produces fines (mists) which may drift to non-targeted areas or evaporate into the atmosphere. For best results in aerial application, use state-of-the-art techniques, such as pressure less than 45 psi and nozzles oriented 45 degrees back to straight back.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

POINTBLANK WM is very concentrated and performs effectively at ultra-low use rates even as low as 1-2 oz. per 100 gal. of water. Start with low dosage rates and increase as needed. A thickened or \"stringy\" solution indicates that too much POINTBLANK WM has been used.

Dosage: As a general guide, use 1 to 2 oz. per 100 gal. of spray solution. Higher spray pressure or greater agitation requires higher rates to maintain good drift control. If, unacceptable drift is still occurring, add additional POINTBLANK WM in increments of 1 oz. per 100 gal. of spray solution.
