Tank mix Bifen with liquid fert?

Post by ktgrok » Tue Aug 06, 2019 11:15 am

I'll double check of course, but any reason I wouldn't want to mix Bifen (want to treat for ants in the lawn) in with a liquid fertilizer (Gordon's Lawn and Pasture 20-0-0). Might also be adding in a soluble potassium source if I can get it. Normally I spray the Gordon's in the evening, let it sit for foliar absorption, then run the sprinklers around 4:30am to wash the rest into the soil.

I've been doing Bifen, 15-0-0 with 6% FE and PGR with no issues.

What about talstar with azoxy/prop fungicide? Would there be any issues with that mix?

When in doubt, do a jar test.

I did this this yesterday and went azoxy first, agitated then Bifen, mixed again and finally urea with no mixing problems.
