General Information

BRANDT M.S.O. is a multicomponent spray adjuvant developed as a
replacement for non-ionic surfactants and crop oil (petroleum oils) to
maximize the performance of crop protection chemicals. This product
assists penetration of the spray mix through the plant cuticle, therefore
caution at the higher application rates should be exercised. If applying
to a sensitive crop, treat a small area first and observe for any adverse
effect on the crop.
BRANDT M.S.O. may be used on agricultural, aquatic, forestry, turf and
ornamental, industrial and non-cropland sites. NOT FOR AQUATIC USE
Read and follow the precautions, restrictions and recommendations on
the labels of pesticides used with BRANDT M.S.O. Use according to the
most restrictive label directions for each product in any tank mix.
COMPATIBILITY: BRANDT M.S.O. is compatible with most pesticides.
However, if the desired combination has not been previously used, a
compatibility test is recommended.
MIXING: Shake well before using. Fill spray tank ½ full of water and begin
agitation. Add pesticides as directed by label or in the following sequence
and continue filling tank: (1) Dry flowables or water dispersing granules,
(2) Wettable powders, (3) Flowables, (4) Solutions, (5) Emulsifiable
concentrates. Add BRANDT M.S.O. last and continue agitation until spray
solution is completely mixed. Continuous agitation of finished spray is
recommended. If spray solution has been allowed to stand, thoroughly
agitate and remix before application.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Specific use rates will vary with conditions of
application such as water hardness, application method, equipment, spray
droplet size, condition of foliage, etc. Also, higher rates than those below
may be used if recommended by pesticide labeling. Follow pesticide label
directions. However, do not add this product at a rate which exceeds 5%
of the finished spray volume, except when used as a diluent for basal
bark applications of herbicides.
AIR or GROUND: Defoliants, Desiccants, Herbicides: Use ½-2 pints per
acre. Exercise caution with selective herbicides where selectivity depends
upon wetting the weeds but not the crop. Fungicides, Insecticides,
Miticides: Use ½-1 pint per 100 gallons of spray mixture.
For improved efficacy with all tank mixes, use at least ½-1 pint per acre
when finished spray volume is less than 20 gallons per acre.
For backpack or hand held sprayers, use ½ fl.oz. per gallon of finished
spray solution.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions
