How do you mix Clippers with herbicides?

Answered by James Kissner

To mix Clippers Herbicide with other herbicides, it is important to follow the proper instructions to ensure effective and safe application. Here is a detailed guide on how to mix Clippers Herbicide with herbicides:

1. Prepare the spray tank: Start by cleaning the spray tank thoroughly to remove any residues from previous applications. This helps prevent contamination and ensures accurate mixing. Fill the spray tank halfway with clean water.

2. Add buffering agent if necessary: Some herbicides require the use of a buffering agent to optimize their performance. Read the label instructions of the herbicide you are using to determine if a buffering agent is needed. If required, add the recommended amount of buffering agent to the spray tank while agitating the water. Agitation helps in thorough mixing.

3. Measure and add Clippers Herbicide: Determine the required amount of Clippers Herbicide based on the desired application rate and the size of the area you are treating. Consult the product label for specific instructions on application rates. It is crucial to measure the herbicide accurately to avoid over- or under-application. Slowly pour the measured Clippers Herbicide into the spray tank while agitating the water.

4. Fill the spray tank with water: Once Clippers Herbicide is added, fill the spray tank to the desired level with clean water. The water level should be sufficient to cover the target vegetation effectively. Maintain agitation throughout the process to ensure proper mixing of the herbicide.

5. Thoroughly mix the herbicide: After adding Clippers Herbicide and filling the spray tank with water, it is crucial to thoroughly mix the herbicide solution. Agitate the spray tank for a few minutes to ensure proper dispersion of the herbicide throughout the water. This helps in achieving a uniform and effective application.

6. Check for complete mixing: Before making any applications, double-check that Clippers Herbicide is thoroughly mixed in the spray tank. Look for any visible clumps or sedimentation and continue agitating if necessary. This step is crucial to ensure even distribution of the herbicide during application.

7. Make your applications: Once the herbicide is thoroughly mixed, you are ready to make your applications. Follow the label instructions of the herbicide you are using for proper application techniques, rates, and timing. Use appropriate spray equipment and techniques to ensure accurate and uniform coverage of the target vegetation.

Remember, it is important to always read and follow the label instructions of both Clippers Herbicide and the herbicide you are mixing it with. This ensures proper application and maximizes the effectiveness of the herbicides while minimizing any potential risks. Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be worn as recommended on the herbicide labels to ensure safety during application.
