WAUKEGAN, ILL. (October 10, 2022) – Precision Laboratories is introducing a novel way to increase growers’ fertilizer investments. SeedZone IF is a sustainably sourced nutrient management tool that improves nitrogen and potassium availability to grow healthier plants with more roots, stronger stalks, and greater yield potential.
WAUKEGAN, ILL. (May 20, 2020) – Precision Laboratories expands its offering of Irrigation Water Optimizers available in California with the registration of Stretta™.
Stretta was introduced in 2019 and is the first plant-derived Irrigation Water Optimizer with fertilizer compatibility. It improves the availability and performance of irrigation water, nutrients, and other soil-applied products throughout the plant root zone, optimizing the growing environment.
WAUKEGAN, ILL. (March 31, 2020) – Precision Laboratories introduces new, innovative technology with a seed-applied water management product. HydraLink is a one-of-a-kind seed-applied water management product formulated to provide an optimal moisture environment around the seed for improved germination and emergence, stand establishment and yield.
Precision is known for irrigation water management products and research has shown that an improved moisture environment can greatly improve the performance of other seed-applied inputs. HydraLink is particularly beneficial when used in combination with seed-applied nutrition products from Precision, including Wuxal® Terios Zn+, Wuxal Terios Mn+ and Wuxal Terios CoMo, where it provides for improved nutrient uptake and utilization.
WAUKEGAN, ILL. (March 18, 2019) – Specialty crop growers now have more options to improve the performance of their spray applications. Precision Laboratories introduces the Tacheon™ line, a group of silicone-based adjuvants designed to reduce the surface tension of spray solutions. This results in improved wetting, sticking and/or spreading, depending on the specific formulation. The Tacheon products are all NPE/APE free for crop safety and have a variety of features so that recommendations can be tailored to meet specific grower needs.
WAUKEGAN, ILL. (March 5, 2020) – Precision Laboratories introduces Precisive, a high-load nonionic surfactant with built-in deposition aids and drift reduction technology. Precisive reduces the risk of off-target movement while delivering more spray solution on-target, improving canopy penetration, and increasing leaf surface coverage.
WAUKEGAN, ILL. (November 11, 2019) – Precision Laboratories is adding a new seed coating polymer to the PRISM™ line. PRISM SCP2020 is designed for optimized coverage, minimum dust-off, maximum retention of actives, improved seed flow and enhanced plantability.
PRISM SCP2020 improves seed to seed uniformity and treatment delivery. The minimum dust-off feature delivers enhanced operator and environmental safety along with treatment efficacy. This also maximizes retention, ensuring that the active ingredient is delivered to the field for treatment performance. Improved seed flow reduces treater bridging for application and planting ease, which can ultimately improve stand and yield.
