SUSPENSION MIX INSTRUCTIONS

 

General:

  • All instructions are for an application rate of 15 gallons of water per acre.
  • All instructions are based on using 45 gallons of water per tank (3 acres coverage).
  • Only initiate these procedures when prepared to spray

 

Supplies Needed Per Tank:

  • 45 Grams “Pure” Firman Pollen
  • One 5 gallon bucket
  • One packed WSU Suspension Mix
  • One 2-quart wide mouth plastic or glass container (tight sealing to avoid spillage during shaking)

 

Technique

  • Empty suspension mix into 5-gallon bucket. Add 2 gallons water and stir until mix is dissolved.
  • Place 2 cups dissolved mix into wide mouth container. Add 45 grams of fine-screened “pure” pollen. Mix well by sealing and shaking container.
  • Add pollen mixture to remaining 2 gallons of suspension mixture. Stir to mix.
  • Pour entire mixture into 43-gallons of fresh water in sprayer tank. This mix will be enough for 3 acres.
  • Once mixed, apply in less than 2 hours, to ensure pollen viability.

 

Additional Information
