CASPER’s WG (Water Dispersible Granule) makes it easy for operators to mix it correctly. The application is easily mixed with the commonly applied rate of 1kg/ha. The 1kg ready-to-use bottle helps prevent OH&S issues that come with lifting heavy containers and ensures easy mixing whilst also reducing the volume of product needed for storage.

CASPER has excellent turf safety and can be used on an extensive range of turf surfaces and turf types. You can have confidence your treatment will not have a detrimental impact on your turf grass.
