TNA’s Foliar Enhancers are new innovations in silicone and nonionic adjuvants that combine the beneficial effects of adjuvants together with pH balancing and pH indicator technology. The formulation has a special blend of silicone or nonionic surfactants to maximize the effects of foliar spraying agrochemicals. For example: Spreading, Wetting, Penetration and Agrochemical Compatibility.
‘Function’ product line allows farmers to control and track the pH level of the solution when applying agrochemical and nutritional sprays. The pH level is of critical importance for the efficacy of Agrochemicals. One such effect is for example is ‘Alkaline Hydrolysis’:
“Pesticides may undergo alkaline hydrolysis, in which a pH greater than 7 causes chemical degradation of certain pesticides in the presence of ions. Alkaline water disassociates or fragments pesticide molecules that results in the release of individual ions (electrically charged atoms), which then reassemble with other ions. These new combinations have no insecticidal or miticidal activity; thus reducing the effectiveness of a pesticide application.”
