Having a proper tank mixing sequence you practice on your farming operation may not get thought of the most, but it is extremely important. One of the most critical things you can do this year when applying herbicide is mixing your tank correctly. Having a bad reaction amongst the chemicals can cause a loss of pesticide effectiveness. It may also cause clogged nozzles, lack of weed control, excessive foaming, and tank clumps. Get the most out of your inputs and ensure tank mixing success by remembering the methods below or print this off as a guide for your farm.
