Agricultural Spray Adjuvant
Agricultural Spray Adjuvants enhances the effectiveness of pesticides such as herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and other agents that control or eliminate unwanted pests. Unlike medical adjuvants, agricultural spray adjuvants are not themselves active in controlling or killing pests. Instead, these additives modify some property of the spray solution, which improves the ability of the pesticide to penetrate, target or protect the target organism.
Among the typical types of ingredients used are surfactants, emulsifiers, oils and salts. Each of these ingredients, and others, modify the spray solution to improve properties as spreading, penetration, droplet size or other characteristics. These additives may be included in a formulation with a pesticide or may be added separately to a tank. When they are included in the pesticide formulations themselves, they are called in-can adjuvants.
Agricultural spray adjuvants may also be added separately when the spray solution is being prepared. Spray Adjuvants contain an active ingredient that is non-toxic in nature, and it easily spreads on the surface of the plant. Moreover, it is biodegradable. Spray Adjuvant improves dispersing and spreading the quality of the spray. It can also be used in drip irrigation with soluble fertilizers.
Works by coating tiny particles/ group of liquid molecules and preventing them from coagulating with other such molecules
Causes the surface tension of the pesticide to be reduced in such a way that it easily spreads into a very thin film over a surface, increasing the efficiency of the pesticides
The thorough wetting action helps improve the performance of post-emergent fungicides, herbicides, micro-nutrients and insecticides
Key Features and Benefits
- Increased spread
- Reduces spray volume
- Rapid nutrient uptake
- Improved spray coverage
- Non ionic in nature
Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, vapour respirator, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected.
Should be stored in original vented containers, away from heat, direct sunlight and combustibles. Store in a cool and dry place. Please refer label and SDS for details.
