may be effected by factors such as abnormal, climatic and storage conditions, quality of dilution water,
compatibility with other substances not indicated on the label and the occurrence of resistance of the
pests against the remedy concerned as well as by the method, time and accuracy of application. The

failure of the user to follow the label instructions or to the occurrence of conditions which could not

physical compatibility test should always be carried out prior to application.
