TREATMENT IN SMALL LOTS BY THE FARMER: May be applied by shaking with seed in a tin, enclosed drum or plastic bag. 1. Premix APRON XL with water to a total volume of not less than 5 mL nor more than 10 mL/kg seed when APRON XL is applied alone. If additional seed treatments are applied in combination with APRON XL a higher total application volume may be required to ensure even coverage of seed. 2. Apply solution to seed and vigorously mix for 1 to 2 minutes. TREATMENT OF LARGE SEED LOTS BY COMMERCIAL SEED-TREATMENT EQUIPMENT: For large-scale seed treatment the product should be applied diluted with water in specialised seed-treatment equipment. As for all such seed treatments, a good flow and metering system for the initial prepared solution is important. Depending on the type of seed treatment equipment, it may be necessary to increase the recommended amount of water slightly in order to ensure an optimal flow of the solution and an even treatment of seed.
Prepare the solution as follows: 1. Fill the solution tank with the required volume of water and mix with the appropriate volume of APRON XL. Total volumes of not less than 500 mL nor more than 1 L water/100 kg seed are recommended when APRON XL is applied alone. If additional seed treatments are applied in combination with APRON XL a higher total application volume may be required to ensure even coverage of seed. 2. Switch on the stirring system and stir. The prepared solution must be used within 1 week.
