Wilbur-Ellis Company, an international marketer and distributor of agricultural products, has added a new adjuvant to its existing line of products. Diligence-EA™ with Accustrike™ Technology is a deposition aid and drift reduction agent for most fungicide, herbicide and insecticide ground-spray applications. Without a noticeable change in droplet size, the water-based adjuvant holds a uniform spray pattern for growers applying agricultural chemicals to their plant material
The product works with backpack and handheld sprayers as the last item added to a tank’s mixture. As a tank’s solution passes through a spray nozzle orifice, the small Diligence-EA™ particles uniformly perforate the spray solution, allowing droplets to cleanly break away and hit the target. The clean break allows for the deposit of more active ingredients to intended plants with minimal spray drift — ejecting from nozzles with spray droplet fines less than 105 microns.
“With this new technology, we have successfully minimized drift-related fines while spraying and, at the same time, maximized the spray deposits of the material onto the leaf tissue,” said Terry Abbott, branded adjuvant portfolio manager of Wilbur-Ellis. “This is important because it reduces the liabilities that come with applying crop protection products, while improving the efficacy of those products.”
