Reduce or eliminate residues from pesticides in mix tanks by thorough cleaning with Liquid Tank Cleaner from one tank mix to the next. Extend the lifetime of seals and other soft parts in equipment and lines. Use with all active ingredients. Tank Cleaner has an extremely alkaline pH, which helps neutralize acid active ingredients more efficiently and works well with sulfonylurea herbicides, both of which are particularly stubborn when being cleaned from a tank.

Clean equipment. Large or small.

Where to use:

In any size mix tank, including seals, soft parts, and lines, with any active ingredients, especially sulfonylurea herbicides.

When to use:

Use when switching spray solutions from one mixture to the next.

How to use:

FOR SMALL TANKS SUCH AS BACKPACK SPRAYERS:
Fill the small sprayer with a small amount of water. Add about 1 ounce of Liquid Tank Cleaner for each gallon of water. Shake sprayer to cover all surfaces several times. Pour out water. Repeat, if needed. Rinse several times with clean fresh water until all signs of cleaning agent, such as foaming, are gone.

FOR LARGE TANKS:
Use about 1 quart Liquid Tank Cleaner per 400 gallons of water. Hard-to-eliminate residues, such as 2,4-D or dicamba may require increased amounts of Liquid Tank Cleaner or repeat the number of rinses or both in order to completely eliminate these tricky residues.

Add rinse water then tank cleaner at an amount adequate for cleaning. Turn on circulation. Continue circulation for 10 to 15 minutes. Also, as prescribed by the equipment manufacturer, clean the booms, hoses and other outer areas for several minutes. Drain the system. Follow with several thorough rinses. Complete rinsing is essential before starting the next tank mix.

HARD TO CLEAN RESIDUES AND RINSATE TESTING:
Some pesticides are difficult to clean even with thorough procedures. Some residues, such as those from 2,4-D and dicamba, may be extremely hard to remove. Carryover of these actives could injure certain crops, if not thoroughly removed. It is recommended after cleaning that the rinse water be tested on sensitive plants to make sure enough residue has been removed. Apply rinse water directly to sensitive plants.

Precautions:

Do not breath mist or vapor. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection.

Active Ingredients:

Proprietary Blend of phosphate and carbonate salts, sequestering agents, surfactants and solvents

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 [...]
