- COMPATIBILITYIt is essential that before using AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide in any tank mixture the compatibility of the mixture be established. Add AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide at the recommended label rate to a clean quart jar containing approximately one-half the amount of water intended for a final slurry application rate. Next, follow with all other tank mix components that will be used in the total slurry application. Add last the remaining balance of water. The total amount of volume is determined by the seed size and how much is necessary to ensure complete and uniform coverage and distribution on the seed, as well as the type of commercial seed treating application equipment that will be used.DO NOT USE MIXTURES THAT CURDLE, PRECIPITATE, OR GEL. FOR BEST RESULTS, TANK MIXTURES SHOULD BE USED IMMEDIATELY AFTER MIXING WITH ADEQUATE AGITATION.NOTE: Thiodicarb is hydrolytically sensitive to degradation of active ingredient by strong acids AND strong bases. DO NOT ADD AERIS SEED-APPLIED INSECTICIDE/NEMATICIDE TO WATER WITH pH VALUES BELOW 3.0 OR ABOVE 8.5. If necessary, water should be buffered within this range before adding AERIS Seed-Applied Insecticide/Nematicide. Degradation can cause reduced effectiveness, plant phytotoxicity and increased handling hazards.
