Mixing instructions

  • Ensure that the water quality is adequate - the pH of the spray mixture should be maintained above 6. 
  • Fill the tank half full.
  • Add Devipan™ 100 according to the relevant dosage on the label.
  • Top up with water, agitating the tank while mixing.
  • Continue to agitate during the spraying process.

NOTE: Devipan™ 100 is compatible with most insecticides and fungicides except alkaline products such as Lime, Lime sulphur and Bordeaux mixture. 

After the flow has slowed down to a drip, invert the empty container over the spray or mixing tank and allow it to drain for at least 30 seconds. Thereafter, rinse the container three times in succession with a volume of water equal to a minimum of 10 % of that of the container and decant the rinsate into the spray or mixing tank. Puncture the triple rinsed container and dispose of it via an approved collector or recycler.

Usage instructions

Devipan™ 100 can be applied by means of any suitable medium or high volume spray apparatus that is calibrated correctly, is fitted with an efficient agitating system and is able to distribute the spray mixture evenly over the target area.

The local maximum residue levels (MRLs) will not be exceeded if Devipan™ 100 is used according to the label instructions. ADAMA South Africa (Pty) Ltd cannot be held responsible if export MRLs are exceeded and therefore the local export marketing bodies must be consulted. For export crops, the relevant export bodies should be consulted before applying Devipan™ 100.

Consult the Devipan™ 100 label for comprehensive directions for use on different crops. Alternatively, contact your ADAMA field team for more information.
