Make chemical applications more efficient by adding Defoamer to your tank mix. Eliminate the need to stop spraying and add more defoamer by using Defoamer as an antifoaming agent during the mixing process. Use Defoamer with any tank mix and any active ingredient for the control of unwanted foam.

Make application more efficient.

Where to use:

In any tank mix.

When to use:

During mixing and spraying.

How to use:

DEFOAMING:
Squirt directly onto foam that has already formed. Stop agitation then add enough Defoamer to get rid of foam.

ANTIFOAMING:
Add Defoamer after the first ingredient. Do not add to dry tank or before the addition of water. Some tank mix partners create more foam than others. For ingredients that cause a lot of foam to form and it may require a use rate up to 2 oz. per 100 gallons to adequately control foam. Other factors such as temperature and amount of agitation will increase or decrease the amount of control needed.

Advice

  1. GRAZING CROP RESIDUES

    Grazing crop residues (especially after harvest of corn or grain sorghum) can routinely be used to provide a substantial number of days of grazing for beef cattle, but can be especially valuable in years when pasture and hay production have been less-than-optimum. This option becomes even more attractive if grassed [...]

  2. CHANGES MAY BE IN STORE REGARDING HAY

    During a discussion of the economics of forage-livestock production, the point will usually be made that stored feed (predominately hay) should be a major consideration.  It is a fact that feeding animals during times when pasture forage is not available is typically the greatest expense associated with production of grazing [...]

  3. VARIETY SELECTION IS IMPORTANT

    Once a forage-livestock producer has decided to plant a given forage species, he or she will usually find there are several varieties of which seed is available. So how should a person go about deciding which variety to plant? Advice from friends, neighbors, and respected advisors can be helpful, but [...]

  4. MANAGEMENT APPROACHES CAN BE SYNERGISTIC

    Numerous management factors can have an impact on the economics of beef production, as well as on other livestock enterprises.  Every farm is different, so the relevance of a given issue to a particular farm varies. However, a  management approach that typically is of great economic value often interacts with [...]

  5. Reducing Stored Feed Needs

    The most expensive aspect of raising livestock is providing feed for them. In general, pasture forage is less expensive than hay or other stored feed, including hay. Here is a concise review of the major options for reducing stored feed.   Use Cool Season and Warm Season Forages On some [...]
