Directions for Use

Use TurfGard as a deterrent against a range of pests and to promote root growth. Foliar uptake will be enhanced by the additon of SW7, and soil penetration will be enhanced by the use of Kobra.SW7 or Kobra may be used as an adjuvant. Choose SW7 if it will be difficult to achieve good coverage or Kobra to aid soil penetration. SW7 or Kobra should be added at 0.1% of the spray volume, e.g. 200ml in 200 litres of water. Maintain agitation and apply immediately after mixing.

The spray tank should be filled with half the water required. If applicable, add the required amountof SW7 or Kobra to the water before the TurfGard. After shaking the container, measure the required amount of TurfGard and add to the tank whilst maintaining constant agitation. Add remaining water to correct dilution and spray.

 

SW7 or Kobra should be added at 0.1% of the spray volume, e.g. 200ml in 200 litres of water. Maintain agitation and apply immediately after mixing.

Do not apply when crop is showing severe deficiency symptoms, is under stress, or in adverse weather conditions. 

 

 

TurfGard is not a pesticide and has no pesticidal activity. However, the strong odour associated with the garlic extract in TurfGard creates an environment around leaves and roots that is uninviting to a range of pests. It does not control the pest but makes a crop less attractive. The addition of kelp rich in auxin stimulates the plant to produce new roots, which helps the plant to overcome the symptoms of soil borne pest attack.
