About Pesticides

Herbicide: A material used primarily for the control of weeds. Herbicides are used in five general ways:

  • Preplanting stage: Applied to the soil after it has been prepared for seeding.
  • Preemergence (Contact): Non – residual dosages are added after seeding but before the emergence of the crop seedlings.
  • Preemergence (Residual): Applied at time of seeding or Just prior to crop emergence; kills weed seeds and germinating seedlings.
  • PostemergenceApplication after emergence of a crops.
  • Sterilant (Nonselective): Used to effect a complete kill of All treated plant life.

Insecticide: Insecticides are used primarily for the control of insects.The various insecticides fall into six general categories:

  • Stomach: Toxic quantities are ingested by the insect.
  • Contact: Kills upon contact with an external portion of the body.
  • Residual contact: Remains toxic to insects for long periods after application.
  • Fumigant: Possesses sufficient natural or induced vapor pressure to produce lethal concentrations.
  • Repellent: Does not kill but is distasteful enough to insects to keep them away from treated areas.
  • Systemic: Capable of being absorbed into the plant system where they make plant parts insecticidal.

Fungicide

  • Fungicides are used on farm crops,preferably as protective rather than curative treatments applied to the surface of the plant in water suspensions or dusts before attack of a fungus.
  • Deciduous fruit trees and numerous vegetable crops and ornamentals, as well as germinating seeds, are usually subject to attack unless protected.
  • Fungicides include inorganic forms of copper and sulfur, mercury, and metallic complexes of cadmium, chromium, and zinc along with a wide variety of organic compounds and Materials used in control of specific plant diseases.Use of some metallic compounds, especially mercurials, is now forbidden in many countries because of the hazard of poisonous residues.
  • Some organic fungicides are systemic in action,absorbed and distributed within the plant.

Fertilizer, Foliar, Defoliators

  • Fertilizer: Any natural or manufactured material added to the soil in order to supply one or more plant nutrients. The term is generally applied to manufactured materials other than lime or gypsum.
  • Foliar Application: Application of a chemical preparation to the leaves or foliage of plants.
  • Defoliators: Chemicals used to curb the growth of leaves.

What Is Active-80?

  • Active – 80 is a universal nonionic spray adjuvant concentrate .
  • It is a Activator – Wetter – Spreader for Pesticides.
  • Active – 80 when added to pesticide mixture ( fungicides, herbicides and insecticides) , foliar fertilizers, defoliators, and plant nutrients increases their performance and effectiveness.
  • It helps them in better control of insects, weeds and disease on crops.

How Active-80 Improves the Performance of Pesticides?

  • For a pesticide to perform its function properly,a spray droplet must be able to wet the foliage and spread out uniformly over a leaf so that maximum area of leaf is covered and the pesticide reaches its target. Does it really happens? No
  • Spray droplets bead up on the leaf surface particularly on Waxy and hairy leaves which does not wet the foliage and spread out uniformly.
  • This Is due to surface tension between spray droplet and leaf surface.
  • By mixing Active – 80 with the pesticide solution,it reduces the surface tension and prevents beading of droplets.
  • It increases the wet ability and uniform coverage of the pesticide and helps it to reach its target resulting in better performance of the pesticides.

Active-80 in Herbicides

  • Active-80 plays an important role in contact and translocating herbicides
  • Since contact herbicide kills only the part of the plant they cover, therefore improved coverage is necessary
  • The wetting and dispersing action of Active-80 helps the contact type herbicides to prolong their action and prevents them from being washed away
  • Active-80 when used with translocating herbicides breaks the surface tension present on waxy and hairy surfaces and facilitate penetration of herbicides deep in the leaf

Active-80 in Fungicides and Insecticides

  • Active-80 when used with fungicides and insecticides acts as a good spreader and increases the coverage for controlling fungus and insects.
  • It assists in spreading insecticide and fungicide as much on the Plant surface so that the insect and fungus can be reached quickly in order to prevent greater damage to the plant.
  • For the wetting and penetration action on waxy and hairy surfaces and for rapid absorption and translocation of pesticides, Active-80 performs excellent.

Active-80 in Irrigation

  • Active-80 can be used as an effective irrigation aid.
  • Active-80 when used with water reduces surface tension and makes the soil to absorb the water deep and fast.

Features and Benefits of Modicare agriculture products Active-80

Concentrated Formula
