This product requires sieving when applied with sensitive spray equipment. Prior to application, mix Tricho-Shield ™ with water to make a slurry. Stand for 1 hour, screen, then add to fertigation or spray tank. Microbial inoculants should be applied as close to the target area as possible: i.e., seeds, roots, leaves or soil. Do not apply in direct sunlight or in very dry conditions. Soil applications should be applied just prior to a rain event or irrigation (or during light rain events) to ensure successful inoculation. Ensure compliance with your quality assurance code of practice regarding the use of microbial products before use.
