Water Conditioner to Acidify Spray Water and Handle with Hard Water Pro-Buffer S2 in Solid Form

Pro-Buffer S2 is a water conditioner in solid form, which can acidify the spray water and sequester metal ions in hard water.
Key Benefits:
- To reduce pH value by approximately 1.5, which will benefit most pesticides 
- To tie upon different types of hard water cations before they can bound with pesticides, especially weak-acid herbicides, thus keep - herbicides in active form and give more consistent weed control 
- To lower the risk of pesticides failure and the added costs when it happens 
- Low use rate of Pro-Buffer S2 @0.07%-0.2% compared to solid AMS @2%
Product Usage:
Tank mix use
1) Read and follow directions for use on pesticide labels. (It is recommended to use test areas if possible.)
2) Test pH and hardness of water to choose the suitable use rate of Pro-Buffer S2.
3) Fill spray tank half of water and begin agitation.
4) Add desired rate of Pro-Buffer S2 to water before adding pesticides.
5) Add pesticides, as directed by label, while maintaining agitation. (If pesticide label recommends the addition of a surfactant, follow instructions accordingly.)
Recommended Use Rate:
 Water hardness level Use rate
 <200 ppm 0.07% m/v
 200-400 ppm 0.1% m/v
 >400 ppm 0.2% m/v
Specification:
 Appearance Yellow liquid
 Active Content, % ≥85
 pH range (1% aqueous solution) 4.0-6.0
Packing: 25kg/bag, etc.

Water Conditioner to Acidify Spray Water and Handle with Hard Water Pro-Buffer L2 in Liquid Form

Pro-Buffer L2 is a water conditioner in liquid form, which can acidify the spray water and sequester metal ions in hard water.
Key Benefits:
- To reduce pH value by approximately 1.5, which will benefit most pesticides 
- To tie upon different types of hard water cations before they can bound with pesticides, especially weak-acid herbicides, thus keep - herbicides in active form and give more consistent weed control 
- To lower the risk of pesticides failure and the added costs when it happens 
- Low use rate of Pro-Buffer L2 @0.2%-0.8% compared to liquid AMS @1% 
- Easy-to-use liquid formulation
Product Usage:
Tank mix use
1) Read and follow directions for use on pesticide labels. (It is recommended to use test areas if possible.)
2) Test pH and hardness of water to choose the suitable use rate of Pro-Buffer L2.
3) Fill spray tank half of water and begin agitation.
4) Add desired rate of Pro-Buffer L2 to water before adding pesticides.
5) Add pesticides, as directed by label, while maintaining agitation. (If pesticide label recommends the addition of a surfactant, follow instructions accordingly.)
Recommended Use Rate:
 Water hardness level Use rate
 <200 ppm 0.2% v/v
 200-400 ppm 0.4% v/v
 >400 ppm 0.8% v/v
Specification:
 Appearance Yellow liquid
 Active Content, % ≥50
 pH range (1% aqueous solution) 6.0-7.0
 Viscosity, cps 30-80
Packing: 200kg/drum

Combination of MSO and organosilicone as Penetrant-Spreader Pro-MSO Plus

Pro-MSO Plus is a penetrant for tank mix use. It combines the outstanding penetrating ability of MSO and super spreading ability of organosilicones, which greatly improves the efficacy of pesticides.
Outstanding Merits: 
- Superior combination of MSO and organosilicone 
- To improve the wetting and spreading of pesticides on the leaf surface 
- To aid in adhesion on the leaf surface and reducing evaporation loss 
- To improve leaf cuticle penetration and increase absorption 
- Contain high-quality surfactants for easy mixing in spray solutions
Product Usage:
- Recommended for systemic pesticides or other pesticides if MSO and organosilicone is allowed or not excluded on the label. 
- Fill spray tank ½ full of water, add the desired amount of pesticides as directed by label, and continue filling. 
- Add Pro-MSO Plus at recommended rate last and continue agitation. 
- Dosage: 0.1%-0.2% of the total spray solution. 
- Use higher rate on hard-to-control weeds or weeds under stress for optimum effectiveness. 
- Better use the preparation within 24 hours and within a pH range 5-8.
Specification:
 Appearance Light yellow liquid
 Viscosity, mpa.s (25℃) <20
 Surface tension, mN/m 
(0.1% aqueous solution)
 <25
Packing: 1L, 2.5L, 5L, 20L, 200L plastic drum, IBC drum.

Methylated Soybean Oil based Penetrant Pro-MSO

Pro-MSO is a penetrant for tank mix use. As a blend of methylated soybean oil and unique emulsifier, it can improve the efficacy of systemic pesticides, especially herbicides.
Outstanding Merits: 
- To help the wettability of pesticides and increase droplet coverage on the leaf surface 
- To aid in adhesion on the leaf surface and reducing evaporation loss 
- To improve leaf cuticle penetration and increase absorption 
- To provide better weed control than COC (crop oil concentrate) in situations with large weeds or weeds that are under stress from environmental conditions 
- Contain high-quality emulsifiers for easy mixing in spray solutions 
Product Usage:
- Recommended for systemic pesticides or other pesticides where an oil adjuvant is recommended on the label. 
- Fill spray tank ½ full of water, add the desired amount of pesticides as directed by label, and continue filling.

Why Agricultural Spray Adjuvants?

Agrochemicals take a long journey from the sprayer, to the crops, and make biological effect. Many factors will block them.
  • Tank pollution:
Residue agrochemicals from last application (different products) may cause compatibility problem and/or crop damage.
We need tank cleaner!
  • Mix Problem:
Mix different formulations in one application to save labor and time but sometimes may cause incompatibility,precipitation, flocculated suspension which leading to antagonism or even crop damage.
We need compatibility agent!
  • Drift:
Too fine or coarse droplet are not ideal to reach the target.
We need anti-drift agent!
  • Evaporation:
Crops need time to absorb agrochemicals in the presence of water solution. Crystallization on the surface is useless and waste.
We need moisturizer, sticker!
  • Rebound:
Droplet rebound is off-target,and waste in soil.
We need deposition aid!
  • Wax layer:
Wax layer in most cases is what the non-reflective leaves have, which is hard for spray solution to wet and penetrant. Uneven coverage is not good for contact pesticides, and penetration failure is bad for systemic pesticides.
We need wetting agent, spreading agent, penetrant, etc!
In conclusion, agricultural spray adjuvants, or tank mix adjuvants above mentioned or of other utilities are good helper for agrochemicals to better finish their task!

Water Conditioner Pro-Buffer to Acidify the Spray Water and Handle Hard Water

As we talked in my former article that water quality is often mistaken as a minor factor in overall efficacy of pesticides efficacy while it do affect the pesticide performance.
Water hardness and pH are the two main characteristics of water quality that impact on the efficacy. And I'm excited to introduce the adjuvant Pro-Buffer S2 and Pro-Buffer L2 developed by Profirst, water conditioners in solid form and in liquid form respectively, which are designed to reduce pH value and handle hard water.
