Garlic (Allium sativum) is a perennial plant of the amaryllis family (Amaryllidaceae), grown for its flavorful and widely used bulbs. The plant is native to central Asia but grows wild in Italy and southern France. The bulbs have a powerful onion like aroma and pungent taste and are not usually eaten raw. It is a classic ingredient in numerous different cuisines. The average garlic consumption per person is believed to be approximately 2 pounds per person per year.
Extending Product (Thrip Control)
Chewing or rasping pests such as thrips can be challenging to control. Significant damage can occur as a result of constant vegetative feeding by these pests. Control is typically achieved with contact- or ingestion-based insecticides. The addition of Nu-Film-17® to these chemistries can allow for more consistent deposition and increased retention on the leaf surface. This increase in deposition and retention has the ability to increase insecticide efficacy.
Nu-Film-17® is a superior deposition, sticker, and extender adjuvant with non-ionic properties based on proprietary Miller technology containing Pinolene.
Pre-Emergent Herbicide Applications
Pre-emergent applications of herbicides are widely utilized 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, such as UV degradation and leaching of the herbicide, 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.
