Compatibility / Tank Mixability of chemicals
It is essential to determine the tank mixability and compatibility of chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers before opting to mix certain solutions. Tankmix™ provides a user-friendly system which can be used as a guideline to determine the mixability of specific pesticides and chemicals. This, however, does not guarantee the compatibility of certain chemicals, and the product label and advisors assistance should be consulted to ensure the desired outcome.

Kynoch is the exclusive distributor of the globally proven Agrotain® nitrogen stabiliser supplied by Koch Industries. This Agrotain® technology was the first of many technologies that we adopted to ensure efficiency on the farm. It allowed us to build a new category of N-hanced-N® products which are known as the KynoPlus® range.
KynoPlus® was specifically designed to mitigate the potential volatilisation losses typically associated with urea. This product is beneficial to all farmers but particularly so to no-till farmers faced with large amounts of crop residue on the soil surface. The higher efficiency of KynoPlus® can also reduce transport costs and handling on the farm.
Tips and advice on tank mixing
There are a few tips and tricks when it comes to tank mixing, but firstly you should always check the label for any information or instructions regarding mixing with other pesticides or fertilizers.
If little or no information is provided, you can execute the Jar Test to determine compatibility of pesticides and fertilizers. The Jar test requires the mixing of substances or chemicals in a jar in the right order and ratio, shaking, and setting aside for an hour to settle. Substances that are not compatible will have certain reactions such as heating up, layering or forming of flakes. It is then also advised to test the contents / mixture in your jar, before applying to your crops or plants. Apply is a small section of your crop / plants to test for undesirable residue or toxicity, b waiting a few days after application.
Should you be mixing fertilizer with pesticides, it is best to consult an experienced agriculturalists to ensure the best outcome. Fertilizers can change the pH levels of the mixture, and also cause the mixture to give undesirable results.
