The application of pesticides is an important aspect of crop protection, and enhancing their efficacy is a key strategy to maximizing their benefits. One way to do this is through the use of spray adjuvants. These compounds act on the spray droplets themselves, influencing properties such as drift, wettability, or spreadability. Many of these adjuvants are synthetic in nature or petrochemical-based.
Xanthan gum and CITROFOLÂ® AI (triethyl citrate) constitute a promising alternative to synthetic adjuvants. In this white paper, we will explore how these compounds can enhance spray performance while meeting the demand for more bio-based and biodegradable options.
- Learn how xanthan gum can positively influence the droplet size of aqueous sprays leading to a reduction in the number of driftable droplets.
- CITROFOLÂ® AI is an ester derived directly from citric acid. Learn how this 100% bio-based compound can enhance wettability of your agrochemical spray application.
- Discover how to optimize spray performance with a combination of xanthan gum and CITROFOLÂ® AI
