What Can Adjuvants Do For You?

Apr 26, 2021

Adjuvants are an essential part of a proper tank mix and help achieve the goal of successful weed control. Here are 3 tips to help you get the most out of your herbicides:
  1. Soften Your Water
Water conditioners help to increase herbicide effectiveness and kill weeds. They do this by keeping herbicides active on the leaf surface.
  1. Do Your Research
Weeds can vary in terms of size, shape and other characteristics like leaf hairs or wax. Crop oil can help a herbicide penetrate the leaf surface and be more effective at killing the weed.
  1. Don’t Drift
Drift reduction agents can help you stay on target and get the active ingredient of the herbicide where it needs to be. This adjuvant does this by optimizing droplet size.
