Agave is a member of the Agave genus, which contains some 200 species in the family Asparagaceae. While this plant is native to arid and semiarid regions of the Americas, particularly Mexico, and the Caribbean, it can grow in almost any climate. The soil and climate of the southwestern US leads to some of the best production of agave. Agave is utilized in the production of sweeteners and is a key ingredient in the tequila making process.
Pre-Emergent Herbicide Applications
Pre-emergent applications of herbicides are widely utilized in an effort to cut down on potential weed populations. These weeds can rob a crop of yield potential. Once a pre-emergent herbicide is applied to the soil, the environment naturally begins to break that chemistry down in a plethora of ways. Sustain® is recommended as a tank mix to help reduce some of these environmental effects. Environmental effects such as UV degradation and leaching of the herbicide can be reduced, thereby helping to potentially increase the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides applied.
Sustain® is a new, unique class of adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on Miller’s proprietary Pinolene® technology.
