WAUKEGAN,Ill. (December 22, 2016) – Precision Laboratories developed an educational video series on Total Spray Droplet Management TM – a stewardship and best practices platform for spray applications. The eight-part video series, developed in association with the University of Illinois, covers such key topics as agronomics, droplet spectrum, nozzle types, system pressure, calibration, use of adjuvants and how weather and other interactions affect applications.
WAUKEGAN,Ill. (October 27, 2016) – With more than 79 billion gallons of water used in the United States every day for agricultural irrigation, it’s critical to implement best practices that improve yields while conserving water and energy. Precision Laboratories wants to educate growers and industry professionals on how new surfactants can increase yield and maximize nutrient, water and energy inputs.
WAUKEGAN,Ill. (July 6, 2016) – Precision Laboratories announces the launch of IntactTM Xtra, an adjuvant designed for applicators who want to maximize spray applications and performance of glyphosate and dicamba-based herbicides. Its convenient, all-in-one premix includes a unique water conditioning system that is proven to further reduce volatility and antagonism from hard-water ions.
WAUKEGAN, Ill. (June 17, 2016) – Precision Laboratories announces a new product specifically designed for the applicator who wants to optimize the performance of dicamba-based herbicides to fight weed resistance. IntactTM is a foliar retention agent and deposition aid with an optimized formulation of proven HPG (hydroxypropyl guar) polymer technology that maximizes drift control for a wide range of crop protection products – ensuring large droplets are retained on the target leaf surface for better coverage, uptake potential and herbicide performance.
WAUKEGAN, Ill. (May 16, 2016) – Precision Laboratories recently announced results from a series of studies that show the important role that ToleroTM, an irrigation injection surfactant, plays in the performance of soil-applied products such as nematicides, fungicides and herbicides.
Precision Laboratories provides best practices platform for maximum spray application success
WAUKEGAN, Ill. (September 8, 2015) –Total Spray Droplet ManagementTM was developed by Precision Laboratories, a leading provider of specialized chemistries, for applicators and growers to consider factors that affect a spray droplet throughout the application cycle - while it is in the tank, through the air and on the target. This ensures quality spray mixes, improved target placement and optimized retention and coverage, while minimizing damage and exposure.
