 It is essential that the sprayer be properly calibrated before making application.
 Spray Pressure - 150 to 275 kPa; for lentils, pea, and processing pea use 275 kPa only.
 Spray Volume - refer to appropriate crop section for water volume.
 Use screens no finer than 0.3 mm (50 mesh) in nozzle and in-line strainers (felt filters, or smaller screens will become clogged). A 16 mesh screen is recommended for the filter on the inlet side of the pump.
 Nozzle tips should be no finer than 6502, 8002 or TK 2.
 Do not use airblast or other high pressure spray equipment to apply METRIX SC Herbicide.
 VIGOROUS, CONTINUOUS AGITATION IS ESSENTIAL FOR PROPER MIXING THROUGHOUT FILLING AND SPRAYING OPERATIONS. Return line agitation is not sufficient. Sparge tube, jet or mechanical agitation is required. Agitation should be sufficient to create a rippling or rolling action on the surface. A pump must be of sufficient capacity to provide adequate volume through the by-pass and/or jet agitation system to provide sufficient agitation even while the booms are operating.
 The sprayer should be checked frequently during application to be sure it is working properly and delivering a uniform spray pattern.
 Avoid over-laps that will increase dosages above those recommended.
 Apply only when the potential for drift to areas of human habitation or areas of human activity such as houses, cottages, schools and recreational areas is minimal. Take into consideration wind speed, wind direction, temperature inversions, application equipment, and sprayer settings.
When applied as a tank mix combination, read and observe all label directions, including rates, restrictions, and grazing limitations for each product used in the tank-mix. Follow the more stringent label precautionary measures for mixing, loading and applying stated on both product labels.
Before mixing METRIX SC Herbicide and its labelled tank-mixtures, examine the spray equipment making sure it is completely clean and free of rust or corrosion. To ensure the equipment is free of any residues from previously used pesticides, flush lines with clean water or recommended detergents. Use an approved method for disposing of rinse water.
Refer to the other product label for pertinent recommendations regarding mixing procedures. The proper mixing sequence for METRIX SC Herbicide and recommended tank-mixtures is as follows:
1. Fill the spray tank or nurse tank 1/4 full with water.
2. Start recirculation and agitation system and continue throughout mixing and application.
3. Add recommended amount of METRIX SC Herbicide.
4. If tank-mixing with wettable powders or other dry flowable products refer to these product labels for specific mixing instructions.
5. Fill the spray tank with water to the desired level.
6. If tank-mixing with emulsifiable concentrates or soluble products, add these products near end of filling the spray tank.
7. Continue agitation during transport and application until the spray tank is empty.
METRIX SC Herbicide and all registered mixtures should be kept agitated once mixed and then sprayed out immediately.
Do not allow mixtures to stand for prolonged periods of time. Water quality, pH, temperature and/or other components of the mixture may affect how long the mixture can stand before application.
NOTE: If spraying and agitation is stopped before the spray tank is empty, the suspended material will settle to the bottom of the tank. When spraying must be interrupted, it is recommended to maintain agitation until spraying resumes. If agitation must be stopped before the spray tank is empty, follow these steps to resume spraying:
1. Remove main filter.
2. Mechanically mix spray solution (i.e., paddle) prior to restarting pump. Ensure that loose sediment is moved out to the sump area.
3. Start agitation on full.
4. Paddle corners of the tank.
5. Reinstall main filter.
At the end of each spray day, rinse out the tank and sprayer lines with water.

Field sprayer application: DO NOT apply during periods of dead calm or when winds are gusty. DO NOT apply with spray droplets smaller than the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) medium classification.
