Advance your crop with PCT | Sunrise® AdjuTec adjuvant line of products. PCT | Sunrise AdjuTec adjuvants help your crop protection products for corn, soybeans and wheat be more effective throughout application and the growing season. Advance with these AdjuTec adjuvants products:

AMS Gold Plus: a water conditioning agent combined with ammonium sulfate and surfactant. 

AMS Tru: a spray adjuvant with AMS specifically designed for glufosinate herbicide programs. 

COC-HL II: highly concentrated blend of emulsifiers and paraffin oil. 

DRT Plus: deposition aid/drift control agent that improves the droplet spectrum of spray solutions without altering the viscosity of the solution. 

Last Shot® II: a deposition aid formulated with an AMS-Free water conditioner that significantly improves uniform coverage, adhesion and penetration of the active ingredients through waxy or weather-hardened cuticles in adverse conditions early or late in the season for select herbicides. 

MSO-HL II: highly concentrated blend of emulsifiers and methylated seed oil. 

NIS 90/10: nonionic spray adjuvant. 

Zephyr II: an NPE-free oil emulsion deposition and drift management agent specifically designed to suppress off-target drift and increase contact activity and penetration of spray applications. Can be used for ground and/or air application. 

Zephyr Prime: a low-use replacement for oil adjuvants and surfactants. 

The AdjuTec adjuvant product line up provides the widest range of applications and effective control across various environmental conditions. They prevent drift and promote compatibility with nutritional products. Advance with AdjuTec adjuvants products.

The Importance of Plant Tissue Testing

Why invest in tissue sampling when soil sampling is cheaper, easy to perform along a grid and the basis of variable rate applications?

Soil samples tell you the concentration of nutrients in the soil. However, nutrient “concentration” is not the equivalent of nutrient “availability.” What is in the soil may not be available to your plant. Why not?

Compact, cold or wet soils may limit root growth. Dry soils or chemical interactions may reduce nutrient solubility. Insect damage to roots and leaves can limit uptake and transport. Negatively charged anions in the soil with the exception of phosphorous can move out of the root zone especially in soybeans with excessive rain event. Critical anions in the soil include sulfur and boron. Boron can be addressed easily with foliar materials. We can adjust sulfur somewhat with foliar but most focus should be on soil applications.

Agronomists also like to look at specific ratios of selected nutrients in plants. Specifically, we like to compare levels of nitrogen to sulfur as the corn plant uses N+S at a specific ratio of 10:1 at the cellular level and we like to see the N:K ratio at a 1.4/1.6:1 level.

Agronomists use term “bioavailability” to describe the actual nutrient availability to living plants. The only way to quantify this is to measure the plant itself through tissue sampling.

Sunrise Cooperative uses local laboratories to provide real time results from tissue samples. Results are often implemented in time to combine foliar feeding with post herbicide and /or fungicide applications. Results are presented in a customized report that describes the availability and significance of each nutrient and if/how our basic foliar products should be augmented with additional nutrients.
