Utility Modifiers

Protect or modify the spray solution to enhance the performance of the tank mix

Utility Modifier Adjuvant Technologies

Optimizing the performance of spray application begins with a clean tank, followed by water conditioning. Our utility modifiers play a critical role in the effectiveness and efficiency of pesticide spray applications.

How Utility Modifier Adjuvants Work

Utility modifier adjuvants contribute to the reliability and effectiveness of agricultural spray solutions. Most importantly, following correct mixing order sequence ensures a stable tank mix, improves pesticide effectiveness, increases productivity, and reduces risk.

Prevention is the Key to Effective Results

To prevent compatibility problems, use these best practices for tank mixing:

  1. Begin the mixing sequence after an adequate amount of liquid is in the mixing vessel or spray tank. Usually that is at least 50% of the final anticipated spray volume.
  2. Avoid premixing concentrated products in an inductor prior to adding them to the carrier.
  3. Add products to the spray solution in the proper sequence. Follow guidelines on pesticide labels.
  4. Use a CONVERT compatibility agent to prevent compatibility issues.

How to Improve Performance in the Tank with Utility Modifier Adjuvants

  • Clean the Entire Spray System

    residual active ingredients from previous spray mixes may cause crop injury with subsequent loads

  • Consider Water Quality

    water conditioning agents may be needed to ensure performance of the spray solution

  • Mix in the Proper Order

    adding products in the incorrect sequence may cause compatibility issues.

  • Follow Label Recommendations
