  • Mixing Instructions

    1. Fill clean tank about ⅓ full with fresh water.

    2. Turn on full agitation.

    3. With the agitator running, add the required amount of Destra IS herbicide. Continue to agitate for a minimum of 5 minutes to ensure that DuPont™ Destra IS herbicide is completely dispersed.

    4. Once granules are dispersed continue to fill the tank to 2/3 to ¾ full, then add the required amount of the tank-mix partner.

    5. After Destra IS herbicide has been well mixed and is in suspension, add a recommended non-ionic surfactant at 2 L per 1000 L spray solution (0.2 % v/v), unless tank mixing with glyphosate, then no adjuvant is required

    6. Fill the remainder of the spray tank.

    7. For repeat tank loads, reduce the material remaining in the tank to 10% of the original volume or less before proceeding with step 1, because remaining chemicals may prevent Destra IS herbicide granules from completely dissolving. If this is not possible, pre-slurry Destra IS herbicide in a small amount (5-10 L) of water before adding to the tank.

    Do not graze for a minimum of 30 days after application.
