Cost-effective Tobacco sucker control programs rely on accurate applications. Drexel Chemical Company is now offering the Dosimeter precision hand applicator designed specifically for use with Drexalin Plus and Plucker-Plus.

The Dosage Control System (DCS) uses line pressure retention and rotary dosage control to provide consistently accurate doses of sucker control with each lever compression.
