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.
Admire Pro Systemic Protectant
- Mixing InstructionsADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT is a suspension concentrate (flowable) formulation, shake well prior to measuring/mixing. The formulation is thixotropic and after sitting for a short time reverts to a gel or thick paste consistency helping to prevent phase separation common to most flowables. After moderate shaking the formulation thins to a relatively non-viscous liquid which pours and measures easily with very few trapped air bubbles - another common problem of most flowables.ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT has demonstrated easy mixing/blooming in water withvarying degrees of hardness and temperature. ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT has demonstrated good mixing and compatibility with many fluid fertilizers without dilution with water.However, because fertilizers vary widely in quality and composition it is suggested that a jar test be performed (see Compatibility Note below) prior to full-scale mixing.To prepare the application mixture, add a portion of the required amount of water/fertilizer to the tank and with agitation add ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT. Complete filling tank with balance of water/fertilizer needed. Maintain sufficient agitation during both mixing and application. ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT may also be used with other pesticides. Please see Compatibility Note below. When tank mixtures of ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT and other pesticides are involved, prepare the tank mixture as recommended above and follow suggested Mixing Order below.Mixing OrderWhen pesticide mixtures are needed, add wettable powders or wettable granules first, ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT and other suspension concentrate (flowable) products second, and emulsifiable concentrates last. Ensure good agitation as each component is added. Do not add an additional component until the previous is thoroughly mixed. If a fertilizer solution is added or used as the diluent, a fertilizer/pesticide compatibility agent may be needed. Maintain constant agitation during both mixing and application to ensure uniformity of spray mixture.
- 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- Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material such as, barrier laminate, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, neoprene rubber, natural rubber, polyethylene, polyvinylchloride (PVC) or viton- Shoes plus socks
- Applicators and Other Handlers Must Wear:- Long-sleeved shirt and long pants- Chemical-resistant gloves made of any waterproof material such as, barrier laminate, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, neoprene rubber, natural rubber, polyethylene, polyvinylchloride (PVC) or viton.- Shoes plus socksFollow manufacturer's instructions for cleaning/maintaining personal protective equipment, PPE. If no such instructions for washables, use detergent and hot water. Keep and wash PPE separately from other laundry.
- Compatibility InformationTest compatibility of the intended mixture before adding ADMIRE PRO SYSTEMIC PROTECTANT to the spray or mix tank. Add proportionate amounts of each ingredient in the appropriate order, to a pint or quart jar, cap, shake for 5 minutes, and let set for 5 minutes. Poor mixing or formation of precipitates that do not readily redisperse indicates an incompatible mixture that should not be used.
