Late harvest coupled with cool, wet spring weather has taken a toll on weed management programs. Growers who were not able to apply a fall herbicide program are experiencing greater challenges now due to heavy rainfall and delayed planting. Staying ahead of large weed populations with spring burndown is key to giving crops their best start.
Adjuvants are a great way to enhance herbicides’ success. PCT | Sunrise® offers a variety of options through their AdjuTec® product line that work with different traits and chemistries for customized solutions. Here are a few options to consider:
AMS Gold Plus delivers a high concentration of ammonium sulfate at a low use-rate for glyphosate burndown programs as well as in post applications in glyphosate tolerant soybean genetics. Water conditioners like AMS, condition adverse hardness in water sources, allowing for successful herbicide movement into target weed population.
AMS Tru delivers similar concentration and conditioning benefits to AMS Gold Plus but is tailored for glufosinate-based programs. It provides improved wetting activity of spray droplets, excellent deposition on narrow grass leaf surfaces and humectant properties to keep spray droplets on plants longer for full absorption.
Last Shot is a nonionic surfactant with a superior deposition aid that significantly improves uniform coverage, adhesion and penetration of the active ingredient through waxy or weather-hardened cuticles. It’s formulated with an AMS-free water conditioner that helps prevent the loss of active ingredient efficacy, which can occur when the mixing water is mineral saturated or of unknown quality.
Last Shot is recommended for use with a broad range of crops and non-crops when tank mixing active ingredients like glyphosate, glufosinate, 2,4-D and dicamba. It improves uptake of herbicides in adverse conditions early or late in the season.
