Atplus UCL 1007 is a quite effective adjuvant in powder form based on fatty alcohol ethoxylates and urea. When combined with the growth regulator daminozide (in chrysanthemum cut flowers) or with glyphosate or e.g. sulfonyl urea herbicides, it has a huge positive influence on the performance. As a result growers can substantially reduce the rate (50%) and the costs (up to 40%) of the daminozide application.
Hasten is an emulsifiable esterified canola oil. Hasten improves the foliar uptake and the performance of many pesticides. SURfaPLUS has developed applications of Hasten with several insecticides. As a result, growers of ornamentals can improve the control of e.g. miner flies.
Elasto G5 is an adjuvant based on polyglycerol. The product promotes the wetting of a leaf surface and can improve the foliar uptake of an active ingredient. Tests of Elasto G5 with the growth retardant daminozide have demonstrated that addition of Elasto G5 can half the amount of daminozide that is needed for a certain level of growth retardation. It is calculated that, depending on the dose of daminozide, a cost reduction of more than 40% is possible.
SURfaPLUS develops, tests and sells adjuvants for agrochemicals. Adjuvants, if applied correctly, enhance the performance of agrochemicals (pesticides, growth retardants and fertilisers). SURfaPLUS exists since 2001 and is located in Wageningen, The Netherlands.
