A new line of adjuvants specifically designed for use with the new herbicide technologies
As new herbicide trait technologies for dicamba and 2,4-D tolerance are introduced, there is a growing need for new adjuvants to work alongside the new herbicide technologies since these new systems may not be compatible with adjuvants that contain ammonium sulfate. This, coupled with stringent requirements for better drift reduction and on-target application, is transforming the entire adjuvant landscape.
As the adjuvant landscape changes, retailers, applicators and growers are being challenged with deciding which adjuvants best fit their specific requirements. To help them develop the most effective crop protection strategies, West Central Distribution released a new line of Elite adjuvants, which provide a cutting edge solution to work alongside the new herbicide technologies that combat resistant weeds. The new Elite adjuvants contain water conditioners without any ammonium sulfate, and do not affect the pH of the herbicide solution.
The three new Elite products include: Veracity™ Elite, Jackhammer™ Elite and Cerium™ Elite.
Veracity Elite is the industry’s most complete adjuvant system that encompasses most applicator’s four greatest needs — water conditioner, quality surfactant, defoamer and enhanced drift reduction agents — for a unique all-in-one adjuvant option. In addition, Veracity Elite has an extremely low-use rate of two quarts per 100 gallons compared to the standard 10 quarts per 100 gallons, increasing operational efficiency for applicators.
Jackhammer Elite includes an unsurpassed water conditioner with an application rate of two quarts per 100 gallons. It also contains one of the industry’s most effective surfactants that has been proven across millions of acres to increase herbicide activity and maximize application effectiveness.
Cerium Elite is a patent pending surfactant that can be used to replace traditional oil adjuvants. It is applied at one quart per 100 gallons, a fraction of the traditional use rate. The other key benefit of Cerium Elite is that it provides effective drift reduction.
