      MIXING INSTRUCTIONS Mix pesticides in areas not prone to runoff such as concrete mixing//loading pads, disked soil in flat terrain or graveled mix pads, or use a suitable method to contain spills and /or rinsate. Properly empty and triple-rinse pesticide containers at time of use as stated in the STORAGE AND DISPOSAL section. Mixing and Loading Requirements To help prevent potential contamination of groundwater, use of a properly designed and maintained containment pad for mixing and loading of any pesticide into application equipment. If containment pad is not used, maintain a minimum distance of 25 feet between mixing and loading area and potential surface to groundwater conduits such as field sumps, uncased well heads, sink-holes, or field drains. ORDER-OF-MIXING OBERON 4 SC INSECTICIDE/MITICIDE may be used with other recommended pesticides, fertilizers and micronutrients. The proper mixing procedure for OBERON 4 SC INSECTICIDE/MITICIDE alone or in tank mix combinations with other pesticides is: 1) Fill the spray tank 1/4 to 1/3 full with clean water; 2) While recirculating and with the agitator running, add any products in PVA bags (See Note). Allow time for thorough mixing; 3) Continue to fill spray tank with water until 1/2 full; 4) Add any other wettable powder (WP) or wettable granules (WG) products; 5) Add the required amount of OBERON 4 SC INSECTICIDE/MITICIDE, and any other "flowable" (FL or SC) type products; 6) Allow enough time for thorough mixing of each product added to tank; 7) If applicable, add any remaining tank mix components: emulsifiable concentrates (EC), fertilizers and micronutrients. 8) Fill spray tank to desired level and maintain constant agitation to ensure uniformity of spray mixture. NOTE: Do not use PVA packets in a tank mix with products that contain boron or release free chlorine. The resultant reaction of PVA and boron or free chlorine is a plastic that is not soluble in water or solvents.

      Tankmix Compatibility
      COMPATIBILITY OBERON 4 SC INSECTICIDE/MITICIDE is physically and biologically compatible with many registered pesticides and fertilizers or micronutrients. When considering mixing OBERON 4 SC INSECTICIDE/MITICIDE with other pesticides, or other additives, first contact your supplier for advice. For further information, contact your local Bayer Representative. If your supplier and Bayer Representative have no experience with the combination you are considering, conduct a test to determine physical compatibility. To determine physical compatibility, add the required proportions of each chemical with the same proportion of water, as will be present in the chemical supply tank, into a suitable container, mix thoroughly and allow to stand for five minutes. If the combination remains mixed, or can be readily re-mixed, the mixture is considered physically compatible.
