Silwet* ECO Spreader

High performance super spreader for organic farming

Listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in organic farming, Silwet ECO Spreader is a low-foaming activator-spreader to consider for crops carrying the USDA organic label. By enabling pesticide treatments using up to 70% less water, Silwet ECO Spreader may provide advantages over most traditional surfactant adjuvants that cannot be used on organic crops. Developed as a super-spreading surfactant, this spreader can help reduce surface tension of spray solutions beyond what is possible with most conventional surfactants. This may lead to lower spray volumes and reduced application costs.

More About Silwet* ECO Spreader

Silwet ECO spreader  can promote lower surface tension and better uniform coverage on foliar surfaces. This potentially means lower water spray volumes, reduced application times/costs and, in many cases, better pesticide efficacies. Its low-foaming properties can make it easier to handle over many other activator-spreader adjuvants. High spray volumes and high surfactant rates are not generally required to achieve significant coverage when using Silwet ECO spreader.

Silwet ECO spreader may be considered for use as an effective adjuvant in most agrochemical formulations including pesticide applications. It also has been used successfully as a tank-side spray adjuvant and may lower spray volumes in spray applications. Quite remarkably, Silwet ECO spreader has provided adequate coverage in many low-volume spray applications ranging between 0.025% and 0.1%.
