Hi! I frankly don’t know. I’m assuming it’s related to volume. i/e Dilute vs concentrate ? Dilute rates result in more phytotoxicity than concentrate. This is “known”, but I’m not sure we always account for that when experiments are run with a “gun”. All else being equal, results at 250 L/ha are likely different from 1000 L/ha… Or 2500 L/ha! (ie about 30 GPA vs 300 GPA).
