NOTE :
§ = Liquid form,
Ø = Powder form

To estimate the quantity of the
pesticide for desired dilution for spraying, following
formula is to be used :

Quantity of the solution needed in liters x Desired
dilution for spraying ÷Original strength of the
pesticide = Quantity of the pesticide needed.

Example : If 50 litres solution of water & Rogor
is to be sparyed on plants then what quantity of Rogor
will be needed?

Rogor is 30 % dimethoate & its desired dilution
should be 0.05 %

.:. 50 x 0.05 ÷30 = 0.083 litres = 83 millilitres

.:. In 50 litres of water, if 83 millilitres of Rogor
is mixed, then it will be desired solution of 0.05 %.

Example : If 10 litres solution of water & Bavistin
is to be sprayed on plants then what quantity of Bavistin
will be needed?

Bavistin is 50 % Carbendazim & its desired dilution
should be 0.10 %

.:. 10 x 0.10 ÷50 = 0.02 kilogram = 20 grams

.:. In 10 litres of water, if 20 grams of Baivistin
is mixed, then it will be desired solution of 0.10 %.
