EXTRA PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE FOLLOWED AFTER USING 2,4-D OR SIMILAR MATERIALS.

Hoses, rubber connections, pump and hand gun packing are more likely to retain 2,4-D than tank, boom or metal parts, equal attention should be given to the flushing of these. Many authorities recommend renewal of soft parts after using 2,4-D. However, if these are in good condition, Farm General Spray Tank Cleaner will clean them.

  1. Flush complete rig with plain water, inside and out
  2. Use as directed on label except allow Farm General Spray Tank Cleaner to remain in rig and hoses overnight
  3. Take liberal sample of second rinse from each section of boom and hand gun
  4. Sprinkle these samples on particularly susceptible plants such as tomato, cotton, etc. to determine if cleaning was sufficient. Period required to show 2,4-D varies with tem-perature and humidity. 48 hours is usually enough
  5. If tests show 2,4-D present replace hoses, pump packing, rubber connections, etc. and repeat entire process including test. 

Precautions:

Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Wear eye protection.
