General Information


Spret incorporates the properties of a nonionic wetter/spreader surfactant when used in pesticidal spray mixtures. Spret is designed to quickly wet and spread a more uniform spray deposit over leaf and stem surfaces. Spret can positively affect pesticide spray application and pesticide efficacy. Spret is recommended for use with those pesticides whose label recommends a wetter/spreader type adjuvant or a nonionic surfactant.


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 Spret to spray 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 the products to be tank-mixed.

For most applications, use enough Spret to allow for uniform wetting and deposition of the spray onto leaf surfaces without undue runoff.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

General Use: Use 1 - 4 pints per 100 gallons of spray.

Note: The above use recommendations are considered to be adequate for most uses.

Some pesticides, however, may require higher or lower rates for optimum effect. Follow the pesticide label directions when this occurs.
