Yes

Step one pour chemical number one in

Step two pour chemical number two in

In proper order depending on chemical compatability.

IF you mix a pesticide with anything else besides water, dye, or fertilizer..and even being commercially licensed.. so mixing 2 pesticides together, you are committing a Class A misdemeanor.. punishable with fine up to $1000 and a year in Jail...

thats in North Dakota anyways.

Yes many herbicides are compatible together and even recommended together on the labels. There is almost always a certain order in which to mix different chemicals. the labels will have the correct order in which to mix or whether or not the particular chemical can be mixed with other chemicals.

Hu? Not only is it legal, but it states it on almost all labels and is common practice of most lawn care companies. Whether they are spiking three way with quicksilver or mixing fungicides insecticides in a shrub mix or a post and pre emergent as a tank mix. No where is it a crime to mix pesticides

I tend to mix about 5 or 6 chemicals together at a time, especially when spraying various weeds in the lawn during spring and summer.

Without sounding like too much of a smarta$$ read the label. It will tell you what can and can't be mix. Also search past threads . This topic has been ask time and time again!
