Volare DC™ Offers Greater Drift Control for Aerial Applicators

Waukegan, Illinois (November 8, 2012) – Aerial applicators now have an on-target solution when delivering timely and more precise applications of crop protection products.  Precision Laboratories, a leading provider of specialized chemistries, recently introduced Volare DC™, a new adjuvant technology for aerial applicators.

Volare DC, briefly known as Avianis DC, delivers improved drift control, deposition and coverage when applied through aerial application equipment.  Unlike ordinary drift retardants designed for ground application,Volare DC optimizes droplet size and deposition by “right-sizing” spray droplets to resist wind stream shear that ruptures oversized droplets formed from ordinary drift retardants.

“Aerial applicators are under ever increasing pressure to cover more acres while delivering timely and on-target applications of crop protection products,” said Jim Reiss, vice president of Agricultural Chemistries at Precision Laboratories.  “Oversized spray droplets can break apart at application speeds above 125 mph, creating smaller droplets that are more susceptible to drift.  Volare DC is specifically designed for aerial applicators to optimize droplet size and resist breakup at high speeds.”

Recent research shows a distinct difference between ground and aerial applications, where ordinary drift retardants can be ineffective for the aerial market.  In 2011, Volare DC was validated through research performed at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Services (ARS) Aerial Application Technology high speed wind tunnel.  It reduced drift by over 30% compared to alternatives and provided superior compatibility at a low-use rate.
