DO NOT mix with desiccants containing sodium chlorate as this could result in emission of toxic chlorine fumes.
CottonQuik may be tank-mixed with Thidiazuron based product and Thidiazuron plus Diuron based product . Since the formulations of other products are beyond the control of Nufarm tank mixtures should be tested before commercial use.
CottonQuik is compatible with Dropp Ultra DC Tron Cotton Spray Oil and Nufarm Reveal Liquid Cotton Defoliant.
Half fill the spray tank with good quality water and begin agitation. While agitating, add the required volume of Thidiazuron based product or Thidiazuron plus Diuron based product if tankmixing.
If using a crop oil concentrate, add the required volume next. Add the required volume of CottonQuik last then fill tank to desired level with clean water. Prepare only enough spray solution for immediate use, and DO NOT allow to stand overnight. If tank mixtures are prepared maintain good agitation and use promptly.
Apply by fixed wing aircraft in a minimum of 30 L/ha water and ensure thorough coverage.
When applying CottonQuik/Thidiazuron tankmixes by helicopter, use the lowest rate of Thidiazuron possible.
Standard boomsprays are recommended and must be fitted with mechanical or bypass agitation. Use sufficient water to obtain complete coverage of all leaves and bolls, i.e. at least 90 to 100 L water per hectare. Good coverage should be obtained with three or more nozzles per row depending upon crop height and canopy density.
Protective clothing should be used at all times (see Safety Directions). CottonQuik is corrosive to acrylic plastics, certain paints and metals.
Regularly flush and rinse all mixing, pumping and application equipment including aircraft external surfaces with detergent and water after use. DO NOT allow undiluted product to contact painted surfaces, spray parts or aeroplane parts. Any spills should be immediately rinsed with clean water.
Dilute residues of CottonQuik are corrosive, so neutralisation of residues and thorough rinsing of all equipment is strongly recommended.
Neutralise internal residues by flushing with a solution of baking soda in water, and then rinse all interior and exterior surfaces with water. DO NOT use the baking soda solution for internal aircraft parts (turbines, hydraulics etc).
Materials recommended for use with CottonQuik include polyethylene, polypropylene, PVC, reinforced fibreglass, most rubbers and 316 stainless steel.
