Uptake Spraying Oil
Active Ingredients: Paraffinic Oil @ 582g/L & Non-Ionic Surfactant @ 240g/L
Uptake spraying oil is a premium quality spraying oil used to improve the spreading, wetting and retention of crop protection products on plant surfaces. Uptake Spraying Oil adjuvant can be used with a wide range of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. It contains a proprietary blend of ingredients that allows it to it perform reliably across a range of spraying conditions, including in cold water.
In global research, Uptake Spraying Oil gave the highest level of spray retention or droplet spreading of four adjuvants tested. Uptake can be trusted for consistent performance which gives peace of mind and avoids possible spray failures which could require retreatment costing time and money
Why use an adjuvant like Uptake Spraying Oil;
Many pesticides require the addition of a crop oil or adjuvant to improve efficacy. Increased efficacy is achieved by improved spray retention on the target weed, or greater droplet spreading across the leaf surface and improved herbicide uptake into the leaf.
Target grass and broadleaf weed species differ in leaf structure, arrangement, surface, size and growth habit. Leaf surfaces can vary widely from hairy (wild radish), to smooth and waxy (annual ryegrass). Adjuvants help to reduce the impact of these physical barriers to pesticide entry into the plant. If a crop oil or adjuvant is not used with certain pesticides then the water in the spray solution, which has a high surface tension, forms discrete droplets on the leaf surface causing uneven pesticide coverage.
For best pesticide performance, a spray droplet must wet foliage, spread out and cover the leaf. Adjuvants like Uptake Spraying Oil reduce the surface tension of the spray droplet and the interfacial tension between that droplet and the leaf, improving herbicide uptake and translocation for better weed control.
