    I usually try to use all of my tank mix (Dimension, 3w-Ester,light urea) on the day I mix it (or at least within 2 days). I have about 35 gal. left over from 6 days ago. How many days max. do you guys think this mix can sit before application and still be effective? Thanks for any input.:confused:

    I would be willing to bet. Regardless of, I would mix more in the tank and spray.

    I don't know about the dimension degrading, the ester formulation certainly will, the question is of how much. Temps and whether it's been stored out in the sun, how old it was when it was purchased, etc. etc. all come into play. I agree with runner. Incorporate it into a new mix to ensure you are covered.

    Ok - I'll pretty much treat it as water and remix it with my next tank full.... I guess if you snooze you loose - money that is. Thanks....
