You routinely mix water in with pesticides and/or fertilizers at your facility when you care for the turf and may rarely consider the qualities of that water. It can dramatically affect efficacy. Learn from Aaron Patton, Ph.D., more about what happens inside the tank and what the research says about enhancing pesticide performance through spray water adjustments in this 90-minute webinar. You’ll hear how some herbicide activity is decreased by different cations in the water. Discussion includes an overview of the relationship between product half-life and water pH as well as details on when to consider a water conditioner. Listen in to determine if changes might make sense for you.
