Cedroz application guidelines

Instructions for use

Cedroz should be applied to soil using the existing irrigation system. It is crucial to have an irrigation system that applies the product uniformly with the distribution lines close to the plants. On sandier soils, it may be helpful to use dual piping.

For a high degree of efficacy, apply Cedroz at 225–450 mL per 100 L of irrigation water (0.225%–0.45%), using between 2,000 and 4,000 liters per hectare, respectively. Cedroz must be applied on damp ground using irrigation volumes that are enough to distribute the product over the full stretch of land containing the roots.

First, distribute approximately 50% of the volume of irrigation water to be used. Then apply Cedroz in 20% of the water volume (2000‒4000 L/ha). Conclude the irrigation cycle with the remaining 30% of clear water.
