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.
The unique properties of PROBUFF 700 enhance the uptake of many systemic herbicides, allowing them to effectively penetrate into the leaves without causing damage to non-target crops.
Available in 5L, 10L and 20L packs.
