Paraquat and Valor SX

— Written By

Question: 

Just wanted to double check. Is it okay to mix 8 oz gramoxone + 0.5 pt basagran + 0.5 lb orthene overtop? Any injury issues?

Answer: 

That is okay to mix.

Another Good Question: 

Even though it’s hot and dry? My concern is that valor and dual is not fully activated and what will happen once you put all that out there and get a rain.

Answer: 

Good question. If there is a lot of thrips damage do not apply paraquat. I don’t know when it will rain but don’t let the thrips eat too much. One option is to get orthene alone out there and then other herbicides. If the peanuts have been up a while valor damage will be minimal.
