Kocide 3000-0 application rate on Atemoya
« on: September 22, 2019, 09:51:07 AM »
Does anybody know what the application rate would be  per gallon on Atemoyas,
The label says 1.25-2lbs an acre
What is that break down per gallon?  I only need a few gallons at a time

Don't know about Kocide cause I never use it.  A few other copper systemics are Phyton 35 and MagnaBon CS2005 at a rate of 2 tsp./gal.

For transforming per acre rates to per gallon rates, it is standard to figure 100 gallons of spray mix per acre.

Thanks
Friends for your advice
I wrote the manufacturer and this is what they replied"The rate range os .08-.32 oz per gallon. The rate will be based on disease pressure and weather conditions for disease."

So I tried it out about 24 hours ago

I've been gardening and farming for many years and have spray rigs starting from the lowly 1 qt. squeeze to a 20 gal. electric trailer pull to a kick ass tractor mounted blaster.  This spray drill is a learned art, meaning no matter what the pros tell you regarding rates, so much per acres, MPH as you drive your rig and spray, only YOU can find out a program that works for you.  Having said that for small apps I go by the so much per acre or per 100 gals. and play with decimal points.  ;)

Good luck!
