Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is an annual leaf vegetable of the aster family Asteraceae. Most lettuce varieties are eaten fresh and are commonly served as the foundation of numerous different types of salads. There are five distinct types of lettuce: leaf (also called loose-leaf lettuce), Cos or romaine, crisphead, butterhead, and stem (also called asparagus lettuce). California accounts for more than 70% of the entire US lettuce production with Salinas, California, known as “the salad bowl of the world.”
Plant diseases can be devastating to the overall health and productivity of a plant, especially during critical crop production periods. In order to best control various diseases, some solutions require your fungicide to remain active and in contact with the leaf surface for an extended period of time for best results. The unique organic compliant formulation of Nu-Film-P® is specially designed to be combined with fungicides that require residual activity on the leaf surface. These include contact fungicides that have direct fungistatic activity on bacteria or spores.
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.
Environmental or abiotic stress has the potential to negatively impact plant health, productivity, crop quality and yield. With the unique formulation of Greenstim®, these abiotic stressors can be mitigated via a multifaceted approach to plant health. Water retention, overall plant metabolism, as well as general plant recovery can be significantly approved with the addition of Greenstim®. By managing abiotic stress effects, yield losses can be drastically minimized. Best effects are observed when applied prior to stressful conditions
Greenstim® 2-8-14 is a proprietary liquid fertilizer combined with plant betaines.
