Velum One is compatible with most commonly used fungicide, herbicide, insecticide, and foliar nutrient products. However, the compatibility of Velum One with all potential tank-mix partners has not been fully investigated. Before applying any tank-mixture not specified on this label, safety to target crops should be confirmed on a small portion of the crop to be treated to ensure an adverse response will not occur.
