    Ground
    Lorsban 15G can be applied through properly calibrated ground application equipment as an in-furrow treatment. Follow the guidelines below to calibrate the application equipment:
    • Fill the hopper of the applicator with Lorsban 15G.
    • Attach a plastic bag to the tube openings to catch metered product from each row outlet.
    • Set the planter to the manufacturer’s initial settings for the desired application rate.
    • Measure off 100 metres and drive the planter the premeasured distance at the desired speed for application.
    • Measure product that was metered into the bags. Each bag should contain the weight of product as listed in the rate chart for a 100 m row. For example, if the target rate was 75 g/100 m row, the bags should all contain 75 grams of product. NOTE: Lorsban 15G granules have a density where 75 grams (weight) of product will be approximately 100 mL (volume).
