- TANKMIXESFor broad-spectrum control of both annual grasses and broadleaf weeds, OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE may be mixed with broadleaf herbicides. With all tank-mix partners, read and follow use directions, rates, precautions, timing and growth stage limitations, recropping restrictions, grazing interval restrictions and recommendations on the broadleaf herbicide and surfactant labels. A non-ionic surfactant is always required with OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE (see "SURFACTANT" section).COMPATIBILITYIf OLYMPUS 70% WATER DISPERSIBLE GRANULAR HERBICIDE is to be tank mixed with other herbicides, compatibility should be tested prior to mixing. To test for compatibility, use a small container and mix a small amount (0.5 to 1qt) of spray solution, combining all ingredients in the same ratio as the anticipated use. If any indications of physical incompatibility develop, do not use this mixture for spraying. Indications of incompatibility usually occur within 5-15 minutes after mixing. Read and follow the label of each tank mix product used for precautionary statements, directions for use, geographic and other restrictions. Indications of incompatibility include separation in the mix, and either clumping or clabbering of the mixture.
