SPRAY DROPLET SPECIFICATION
A person applying this substance must ensure that the substance spray is delivered as a course quality spray for ground based application and course to very course droplets for aerial application as classified by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) droplet size classification scheme (American National Standard ANSI/ASABE S572.1, March 2009)

BUFFER ZONES
The person in charge of the application of PREEGLONE and any person applying PREEGLONE must ensure that the respective specified distances from a downwind sensitive area are followed, as outlined on the product label.

DO NOT apply when wind speeds are less than 3 km/h or more than 20 km/h as measured at the application site.

Tank mixing

Use clean water only as dirty water will adversely affect the action of the chemical. Partially fill the spray tank with water, add the desired quantity of PREEGLONE, mix and top up with water to the required total volume. PREEGLONE contains sufficient wetting agent for normal usage so the addition of further quantities is not normally necessary. Under dusty conditions or when treating plants with very waxy surfaces add a non-ionic wetting agent at label rates.
