Cabbage (Brassica oleracea) is a vegetable and fodder plant of the mustard family (Brassicaceae). Various agricultural forms of this plant have been developed by long cultivation from the wild cabbage. Cabbage grows best in cool weather and soil rich in organic matter. The best soil pH for cabbage is 6.5 to 6.8. California, Wisconsin, New York, Florida and Texas account for more than 75% of the US cabbage production.
Residual Pesticide Applications
Environmental pests come in a wide range of forms, from diseases, to insects, to invasive weeds. The methods for controlling these pests vary as well. Some solutions require a pesticide to remain active and in contact with the leaf surface for an extended period of time for best results. Nu-Film-P® is an organic compliant adjuvant that is uniquely formulated to be combined with pesticides requiring residual activity on the leaf or fruit surface. These include contact or ingestion-based pesticides that have direct activity on the target pests.
Nu-Film® P is a superior deposition, spreader, and sticker adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene®.
Systemic Pesticide Applications
Plant health can be negatively impacted by pests in the environment in several different ways. Each of these potential pests also require their own unique solution for control. Exit ® has been purposefully formulated to be combined with pesticides that depend upon rapid uptake and translocation of the active ingredient. Pesticides such as those with systemic or translaminar activity as well as those with hormonal or plant growth regulator effects are particularly well suited for tank mixing with Exit®. The unique ability to increase the speed at which translocation occurs is what defines Exit®.
Exit® is an activator-adjuvant comprising a blend of premium-quality esterified seed oil with a proprietary surfactant and humectant system.
