- Droplet survival on leaf surfaces is a key determinant of herbicide efficacy - ANTIEVAP® and ENHANCE® improve droplet survival and final herbicide efficacy - ANTIEVAP® and ENHANCE® have been proven superior to LI700 in Triclopyr, Glyphosate & LVE mixes for melon control.Read more
- Whether applying NPV by air or ground rig – coverage and droplet survival is critical - BIOPEST® has been proven to increase droplet size and survival, reduce drift and increase leaf coverage – improving the effectiveness and longevity of NPV. - BIOPEST® has activity in its own right on Helicoverpa by reducing egg layingRead more
During the summer of 2014/15, SACOA set out to find the best herbicide and adjuvant combinations for controlling difficult weeds using in-field efficacy trials.Read more
- Alternative adjuvants provided no advantages but did cause mixing and nozzle blocking issues, particularly under cold conditions. - Generally mineral oils, such as ENHANCE®, proved more efficacious on mixed populations of grass and broadleaves, whilst methylated seed oils, such as PLANTOCROP®, proved more efficacious on grass weed populations.Read more
BIOPEST® is a highly refined paraffinic oil for aphid management in canola and cereals. BIOPEST® works by interfering with the virus transmission process, modifying the behaviour of aphids and causing the aphids to suffocate. Use BIOPEST® as a preventative at 1% as a tank mix partner in post emergent applications. Use BIOPEST® as a...Read more
