Use & Mixing
The instructions for use and mixing described below are from the Environmental Protection Agency approved Federal Label. Please click on 'Labels / MSDS' in the left hand navigation for special or state label instructions. Always read and follow label instructions.
- MIXING INSTRUCTIONSOSPREY Herbicide must be applied with clean and properly calibrated equipment. Prior to adding OSPREY Herbicide to the spray tank, ensure that the spray tank, filters, and nozzles have been thoroughly cleaned.Mixing Order1. Fill the tank 1/4 to 1/3 full of water.2. While agitating, add the required amount of OSPREY Herbicide.3. Continue agitation until the OSPREY Herbicide is fully dispersed, at least 5 minutes.4. Once OSPREY Herbicide is fully dispersed, maintain agitation and continue filling tank with water. OSPREY Herbicide should be fully mixed with water before adding any other material.5. As the tank is filling, add the required amount of spray adjuvant (methylated seed oil or basic blend or non-ionic surfactant) and ammonium nitrogen fertilizer. Add additional pesticide tank mix partner, if desired.6. Continue agitation during herbicide application to ensure uniform spray coverage. If the mixture is not continuously agitated, settling may occur. If settling occurs, thoroughly re-agitate spray solution for at least 10 minutes before application. Use spray solution within 24 hours after mixing.
- Reentry PPE
- PPE required for early entry to treated areas that is permitted under the Worker Protection Standard and that involves contact with anything that has been treated such as plants, soil or water, is coveralls, socks, shoes, chemical resistant gloves such as barrier laminate, butyl rubber >= 14 mils, nitrile rubber >= 14 mils, or neoprene rubber >= 14 mils, and protective eye wear.
- PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)Some materials that are chemical-resistant to this product are listed below. If you want more options, follow the instructions for category A on an EPA chemical resistance category selection chart.Applicators and other handlers must wear: Long-sleeved shirt and long pants, socks, shoes, chemical resistant gloves such as barrier laminate, butyl rubber >= 14 mils, nitrile rubber >= 14 mils, or neoprene rubber >= 14 mils, and protective eyewear (safety glasses). Follow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning/maintaining PPE. If no such instructions for washables exist, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry.
- COMPATIBILITYIf OSPREY 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 1 qt) 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.
