i have been spraying T2 for some on with .7 of terpal. Finished the field with 1/3 of a Ha left in the tank, than added 10ha with no terpal and sprayed the next field. I have some still left in tank but next field the ears are out. Would the terpal cause any damage. would be equivalent of .025/ha
 
Ears completely out, or boots split?
The legal stance: The label cut off has passed.
The science: Terpal applied to the ear if the boot has split could stop ear emergence.
Practically: I’ve done it at 0.7 rate and not had a problem after a call with the then BASF area rep who said it would be fine. At the low rate you’re planning to apply I wouldn’t lose sleep, but bare in mind the label cut off when recording application.

Can't you just dilute it up and respray your last field? You really don't want to chance terpal hitting the ear.
