Application Timing

Applications can be made throughout the year, weather permitting, except when soil is frozen or saturated with water.

Note: Tide Paclo 2SC is absorbed by plant roots and translocated to the growing tissues in response to evaporative water loss (transpiration). If applications are made after fall leaf drop, uptake of Tide Paclo 2SC will not occur until the development of new leaves in the spring and resumption of transpiration.

Mixing Directions

Mix 317 ml (10.7 fl oz) of Tide Paclo 2SC with water to make one gallon of diluted mixture. One gallon of Tide Paclo 2SC will make 12 gallons of diluted mixture. To improve the handling characteristics of the diluted mixture, the addition of a suspension aid is recommended such as nonionic and organosilicone surfactants.

Looking for a surfactant to use, what do you recommend?

We are having a problem with this product settling out of suspension, we are needing a good surfactant.

We would recommend using a non-ionic surfactant with Tide Paclo 2SC. You will use 1-2 teaspoons per gallon of water.
