How To Mix

Application Guidelines – Always read and follow label instructions before use

Product in package form must be applied by first dissolving into solution with water and thoroughly coating the surface of the seed. Do not apply in packaged powder form. Ensure the product is thoroughly dissolved in solution and the solution agitated before application. Return any unused powder to original container.
