General Information


PENETRATOR is a non-ionic blend of special surfactant spray oil that is designed for use with a broad range of pesticides where an oil concentrate adjuvant is recommended. Subject to the cautionary statements set forth in the Directions for Use, PENETRATOR may be used with other pesticides and/or fertilizer products. The addition of PENETRATOR to a spray tank improves pesticide application by modifying the wetting and deposition characteristics of the spray solution resulting in a more even and uniform spray deposit. Optimum application and effects, however, can be influenced by the crop, pest, spray equipment, spray volume, pressure, droplet size, spray mixture, and environmental factors. Consequently, it is recommended that careful observations of the spray deposit be made and adjuvant concentrations be adjusted accordingly.


The addition of an adjuvant to some pesticides or pesticide tank mix combinations may cause phytotoxicity to the foliage and/or fruit of susceptible crops. Prior to the application of PENETRATOR in spray tank mixes and/or prior to the application of PENETRATOR with a pesticide and/or fertilizer where an oil or oil concentrate adjuvant is not specifically recommended but not prohibited by the product's label, the user or application advisor must have experience with the combination under similar environmental and crop cultural conditions and/or have conducted a phytotoxicity trial under similar environmental and crop cultural conditions.

PENETRATOR may be applied by Ground, CDA, Aerial or Aquatic spray equipment. In most cases, use enough PENETRATOR to allow for uniform wetting and deposition of the spray onto leaf surfaces without undue runoff.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

GROUND: Do not exceed 2.5% v/v concentration.

NOTE: The above use recommendations are considered to be adequate for most uses. Some pesticides, however, may require higher rates for optimum effect. Follow the pesticide label directions when this occurs.
