• Calibrate the spreader before each season of use or when changing pellet brands
  • All pellets have specific ballistics and densities, recalibration of the spreader is important to get the best results from Firescale • Apply 7 kg/ha for moderate to heavy infestations or in fields with slug problems
  • Apply as soon as possible after sowing
  • Soil temperatures must, however, be above 8 degrees for active slug feeding. Optimal feeding activity occurs around 12 to 14 degrees
  • Apply in damp conditions, but avoid waterlogged soils • In case of a weaker infestation, the dose can be reduced to 5 kg/ha, but the infestation should be closely monitored after 7 to 10 days and a new application may be necessary.
  • Even when using the maximum dose of 7 kg / ha, crops must be checked after 14 days to detect possible additional damage and decide if another application is required (up to 4 applications can be used in a season)
