This acidifier, penetrant and drift reduction product provides a triple action method that helps create the ideal pH conditions in the tank, improves pesticide penetration of pest surfaces and maximizes the amount of solution that lands on target.
3 In 1 adjuvant improves turf pesticide application performance
Exacto Inc., manufacturer of innovative adjuvant and water management technologies, is proud to announce a wide distribution of Yardage, a 3 in 1 combination adjuvant that helps applicators optimize the performance of pesticide applications. This acidifier, penetrant and drift reduction product provides a triple action method that helps create the ideal pH conditions in the tank, improves pesticide penetration of pest surfaces and maximizes the amount of solution that lands on target.
· As an acidifier, Yardage lowers the pH of tank mixes that include common weak acid herbicides such as 2,4-D and dicamba. Acidifying these mixes helps to prevent alkaline hydrolysis of these pesticides and helps them to operate at peak performance.
· As a penetrant, Yardage reduces the surface tension of spray solutions, allowing spray droplets to spread upon impact. With this improved coverage, the solution has more avenues of penetration and is better able to deliver pesticide actives to the pest interior where it is most effective.
· As a drift reduction agent, Yardage maximizes the number of droplets in the ideal size range for uniform deposition of spray droplets on plant surfaces. By reducing the number of droplets that are small enough to be susceptible to drift or large enough to bounce off the target and land in the soil, applicators can be confident their applications land where intended.
Exacto’s innovation manager, Frank Sexton is excited about this product. “This particular adjuvant is based on time tested chemistry developed in our lab over many years and is backed by university data. It performs as well as the industry standard and has superior handling characteristics, such as the formulation’s ability to disperse in cold water without gelling.”
Yardage is now available in 1 and 2.5 gallon sizes at John Deere Landscapes, Valley Green Inc., Green Velvet Sod Farms, Univar and similar landscape or pest control supply dealers around the country.
