Adjuvant action begins in the tank, improving compatibility of chemicals, improving mixing, preventing chemicals dropping out of suspension and anti-foaming properties. This will ensure that the spray will work more effectively.
Adjuvants can also improve spray application through reduced spray drift, improved droplet spread, improved penetration and pH buffering, ensuring more accurate on target spray application.
Frequent reapplications are not needed as some adjuvants provide rain protection and prevent wash off from irrigation.
Some adjuvants can also protect crops and reduce profit losses as they provide UV protection which protect biological products and ensure that they continue to perform. They can reduce the effect of sunburn, sunblush and russet from developing on fruit leading to export crop losses. VaporGard will help reduce cracking and splitting of fruit following heavy rainfall and reduce the damage done to crops by frost or desiccation by strong wind.
Use of adjuvants can enhance the performance of foliar fertilisers so your crop will achieve optimum growth and productivity.
Adjuvants can also be useful in Pest Control programmes as the inclusion of a Pinolene product with insecticide or fungicide pesticides will result in more even coverage of the target area, rain fastness, UV protection and a controlled release of active ingredient over time.
