LASTICK is a superior nonionic spray adjuvant designed to form a sticky, elastic film which encapsulates and tenaciously sticks pesticides and nutrients to crop foliage. This elastic, sticky protective film reduces the effects of many environmental factors which contribute to pesticide and nutrient degradation. LASTICK improves the initial spray deposit and allows redistribution of those deposits to give more complete coverage.
To realize the maximum benefit, sprays containing LASTICK should be applied at least one hour before moisture, in the form of rain, irrigation or dew is expected. This one hour
time period is needed for the protective elastic film to set.
After the film has set, LASTICK helps prevent moisture and wind erosion of pesticides and nutrients from plant surfaces. LASTICK helps shield the spray deposits or residues from U-V (ultra-violet) radiation and from high temperatures, two factors associated with active ingredient degradation. The protective elastic film also reduces volatilization of spray deposits and residues. In addition, the loss of spray deposits and residues caused by the abrasive activity of foliage rubbing together is reduced.
LASTICK is compatible in spray tanks with most commonly used commercial pesticides and soluble nutrients when used and stored according to directions on the label. The product does not foam, freeze or clog nozzles. It is approved for use in all types of ground and air spraying systems.
Note: LASTICK will provide extension of spray deposits and residues only at the 16 oz./acre rate. At lower rates, it will not act as an extender. However, 4 oz. per acre will provide excellent sticking properties, and at an 8 oz. rate per acre it will give limited extension to many insecticides, fungicides and nutrient sprays as well as providing excellent sticking properties. The use of LASTICKÒ at any rate close to harvest may result in visible residues on crops which may render them unsaleable. If this is a potential problem, delete the LASTICKÒ or switch to SURFIX.
