CROPS

NOTE: Mixing this product with certain surfactants, foliar fertilizers, or other pesticides can cause crop injury. Determine crop sensitivity to a particular combination by spraying a small area of foliage and fruit. Evaluate 3 to 7 days later for adverse effects.

NOTE: To assure the compatibility of this product with these and other products, pour the products into a small container of water in the correct proportions. After thorough mixing, let stand for 5 minutes. If the combination remains mixed, or can be re-mixed readily, the mixture is compatible.

NOTE: Mixing of this product with other products has been known to increase the salt content and the potential for fruit burn. Environmental factors that could exasperate burn potential include applying product during the following conditions: 1) temperatures above 90°F, 2) shortly after a rain event, 3) during color break of the fruit. Apply with extreme caution when these conditions exist. Determine crop sensitivity to these factors by spraying small areas of foliage and fruit. Evaluate 7 to 10 days later for adverse effects.
