Product Description

Wetting & Sticking Agent:

Introduction:

Most foliage of plants universe is hydrophobic (water repellent) to some extent- low repellence in some to totally zero adherence of water in other plants like cabbage etc. No plant exhibits immediate adsorption of water from foliar surface. This tendency of foliage poses a major problem to the farmer when applying any toxicants/micro-nutrient etc through foliar spray. In some plants we find hardly any spray solution is retained on the leaves and most of it simply slips off the leaves to ground-thus the very purpose of adding a toxicant or feeding a micro-nutrient or PGR through foliar application is nullified. DIKO - WET is designed specifically to address this problem faced by the farmers.

Objective:

  • The objective of designing DIKO - WET is to attack the hydrophobic nature of the foliage from various angles while imparting other benefits to the farmer

Advantages:

DIKO - WET offers following benefits to the farmers:

  • Lowers the surface tension of the spray solution so that the spray solution is retained on the leaves and does not fall off in the form of droplets
  • Spreads the spray solution on the total surface area of the leaves thus reducing the volume of spray solution required
  • Ensures complete wetting of the leaves thus increasing the efficacy of the toxicant
  • Helps in making fine even dispersion of the toxicant in spray solution and prevents sedimentation
  • Where the toxicant is used through soil application, it ensures quick absorption and deeper penetration of the solution in the soil

Dose:

  • Foliar application 0.05-0.1% of spray solution (0.5-1.0gm/litre)
  • Soil application 0.1%-0.2% of solution (1-2gm/litre)

Method of Use:

  • Once the spray solution is prepared simply add DIKO - WET to the solution and mix well till homogenized

Applications:

  • DIKOWET acts as a spreader, sticker, wetting, dispersing and penetrating agent for foliar as well as soil applications
  • It is compatible to most of the toxicants, micronutrients, plant growth promoters etc and does not interfere with their emulsion/solution stability
  • It does not react chemically with most of the agrochemicals and so does not affect their chemical stability
  • It is therefore highly recommended to add DIKO - WET in required dosage while preparing agrochemical solutions/ emulsions whether for foliar or soil application to increase affectivity of the agrochemical by as much as up to 50%
