Vegetable Seedlings

Season Long

 

12.5 kg/ha beginning just prior to flowering. Repeat every 7-10 days as needed to maintain

Good film coverage.

 

 

Late Season Sunburn/Heat Stress Management

 

Initial application

50 kg/ha

 

 

Subsequent applications 25 kg/ha

 

 

Apply the first two applications 7 to 10 days apart and prior to the first heat event. Increase the volume of water used throughout the season based upon plant size. Reapply at 10 to 14 day intervals as required to maintain an even coverage on the fruit and foliage. Continue treatment as required and maintain cover up to 7 days prior to harvest.

 

Cucurbits apply to smooth-skinned cucurbits only. Refer to Post-harvest Packing and Washing section before use.

 

Reduces transplant shock and heat stress when transplanting nursery stock to the field.

Pineapple

Apply in a water volume of approximately 1000 to 1250 L/ha using a calibrated boom fitted with fan nozzles. Applications near harvest are needed if the ripening fruit changes position as its weight increases.

Heavy rainfall, new growth and wind erosion will affect film quality. Reapply to re-establish coverage after heavy rain as soon as the foliage is dry. If the entire cover is lost due to rain, recommence applications at the initial high rate, followed by subsequent applications at the lower rate.

 

For fresh market pineapple, ensure that high pressure forced water sprays remove residue.

Cotton, Peanuts

 

For the management of heat stress.
