The wettable powder is mainly used in the form of an aqueous suspension.
It may be applied by any of the following methods: drip irrigation, drenching or spraying onto the growing medium, incorporating into the growing medium, as a dry seed treatment, or as a bulb and cutting dip.

PreFence is a product that features well in programs with RootShield PLUS+and CEASE/MilStop. It is safe for beneficials and is compatible with many chemical inputs.
