ReQUEST is a water conditioning agent designed to enhance the performance of pesticides affected by hard water. Additionally, the sequestrants and chelating agents that make up ReQUEST are combined with ammoniacal nitrogen. Ammoniacal nitrogen has been recognized as an effective enhancer of pesticide uptake by some plant species. As a result of these activities, ReQUEST can positively affect pesticide spray application and efficacy. ReQUEST contains no surfactants and additional adjuvants may be necessary for optimum pesticide performance. Refer to the pesticide label for the need of additional adjuvants. ReQUEST does not contain buffering agents and therefore is compatible with sulfonylurea herbicides and other pesticides which are sensitive to reduced pH. Never mix ReQUEST with undiluted pesticides.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
FOR USE WITH PRODUCTS REGISTERED FOR: AGRICULTURAL, FORESTRY, INDUSTRIAL, MUNICIPAL, ORNAMENTAL, RIGHTS-OF-WAY, TURF, NON-ROPLAND, AND OTHER USES.
In all applications of REQUEST, read and follow directions on the pesticide(s) label as to procedures, dosage rates, timing of applications, and restrictions for the crop on which the pesticide is to be applied. REQUEST can increase the activity of some pesticides. The use of test areas is recommended when applying during periods of high humidity or high temperature or to other situations where field experience is limited.
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 addition of REQUEST tospray mixes, the user or application advisor must have experience with the combination or must have conducted a phytotoxicity trial or must take the recommendations from the labels of products to be tank mixed.
NOTE: REQUEST is a water conditioning agent. REQUEST does not replace the need for a crop oil concentrate adjuvant or nonionic surfactant. If the pesticide label recommends it, then additional crop oil concentrate adjuvant or nonionic surfactant should be added.
