Acidifiers and Buffering Agents

An acidifying or buffering agent is generally used with glyphosates to reduce pH of the water and improve effectiveness.

It is based on soybean lecithin (derived from soybean oil) and propionic acid. Glyphosate is most effective at a pH of around 4.5 – 5.0.

It is also useful for acidifying high pH waters to reduce alkaline hydrolysis of products such as dimethoate insecticide.

The small amount of derived soybean oil in the buffering agent may also provide assistance in drift control and management of spray droplets.
