Small grains generally refer to crops such as wheat, barley, oats, alfalfa, and rye. Oats and rye tolerate acidic or poorly drained soils better than wheat or barley do. Nevertheless, maximum yields are achieved on moderately well-drained or well-drained soils with a pH above 5.8. For maximum wheat production, wheat must be cropped on moderately well-drained or well-drained soils with a pH above 6.0. Barley requires well-drained soils with a pH above 6.3, the same as needed for alfalfa production.
Residual Pesticide Applications
Environmental pests come in a wide variety of forms including, diseases, insects, invasive weeds and more. 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 for best results. Nu-Film-17® is uniquely formulated to be combined with pesticides that require 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-17® is a superior deposition, sticker, and extender 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.
