Spray Quality and Effect of Adjuvants
Spray nozzles have a significant impact on spray quality, but adjuvants also play an important part. Jorg Kitt from Nufarm explains the use of adjuvants to reduce spray drift at the Eyre Peninsula Agricultural Research Foundation (EPARF) members day held at the Minnipa Agricultural Centre. Adjuvants should be part of the spray operation solutions to quality by using the right nozzle with the right adjuvant.
Adjuvants Play a Important Role
When it comes to spray quality, most people always talk about nozzles and, by all means, nozzles have been, have a great impact on the spray quality. They’re probably the main tool. how to influence spray quality, but adjuvants also play an important part You will see that nonionic surfactants like Chemrid 1000, for example, or BS 1000 will increase the amount of drift it provides so you will get Much more drifter refined, so we get more drift, and adjuvants like LI700, which are lacertine based, where with use of amount of drift able fines.
The same with oil, oil has the same effect as a general statement. There are differences between different products, but as I said, it’s a general statement unless it’s in an oil or reduced amount of driftable fines and adjuvants shouldn’t be part of the problem, they should be part of the solution so using the right nozzle with the right adjuvant will greatly reduce your drift.
