ORNAMENTALS

General Information

APPLICATION TO ORNAMENTALS

PRO-MATE MERIT 0.2% PLUS TURF FERTILIZER can be used as a broadcast application on ornamentals in commercial and residential landscapes, as well as on landscaped areas of golf courses and other recreational areas. This is a systemic product, with the active ingredient being absorbed by the roots and translocated upward within the plant. Optimum control will be achieved when applications are followed by sufficient mechanical incorporation, irrigation or rainfall to place the active ingredient into the soil.

Applications of PRO-MATE MERIT 0.2% PLUS TURF FERTILIZER cannot exceed a total of 200 lb (0.4 lb of active ingredient) per acre per year.

NOTE: Not for use in commercial greenhouses, or nurseries.

APPLICATION EQUIPMENT

Apply PRO-MATE MERIT 0.2% PLUS TURF FERTILIZER uniformly over the area being treated with typical granular application equipment. Both drop-type and rotary-type spreaders may be used to apply PRO-MATE MERIT 0.2% PLUS TURF FERTILIZER. Avoid the use of spreaders which would apply the material in narrow, concentrated bands. Calibrate application equipment prior to use according to the manufacturer’s directions. Check frequently to be sure equipment is working properly and distributing granules uniformly and accurately.
