All Applications

Merge® adjuvant – 200 to 400 ml/ac (0.5 to 1 L/ha)2

 

Water Volume

Ground application only – 20 to 40 L/ac (5 to 10 gal/ac)

 

2 The higher rate of Merge adjuvant is recommended for higher weed densities and when environmental conditions at the time of herbicide application may negatively impact herbicide uptake.

Tank Mixes

Mixing Order

  1. Use a 50 mesh filter screen and fill clean spray tank 1/2 full of water. Start agitation system.
  2. Add the required amount of Smoulder herbicide and continue agitation until completely dissolved and product is fully dispersed.
  3. Add in glyphosate.
  4. Add the required amount of Merge adjuvant.
  5. Continue agitation while adding the remaining amount of water to fill the tank.
  6. Continue to agitate or the run the by-pass system.
  7. After any break in sprayer operation, agitate thoroughly before spraying again.

 

Sprayer Cleanout Instructions

  1. Immediately after spraying, completely drain the spray tank.
  2. First Rinse: Fill tank 1/10 full of water; rinse spray tank for 15 minutes; flush through booms and hoses. Remove all end caps or open ball valves and flush solution through boom ends. Drain tank completely.
  3. Second rinse: Fill tank with clean water. Add a commercial grade tank cleaner or 1 L of household ammonia (minimum 3% ammonia) per 100 L of water and agitate and flush booms. Agitate for 15 minutes. Remove end caps or opening ball valves to flush booms and hoses after allowing cleaning solution to stand in sprayer tank and booms for several hours or overnight. Drain tank after flushing boom and hoses. Clean nozzles and screens separately with a cleaning agent or an ammonia solution.
  4. Third rinse: Rinse tank with clean water and flush through boom and hoses. Remove all end caps or open ball valves and flush solution through boom ends. Drain tank.
