General Information


NO FOAM NUTRIENT FOLIAR SOLUTION 8-8-2 is a nutrient solution combined with a complete surfactant system with emulsion stabilizer. It increases the efficiency of various pesticides via quick wetting and uniform coverage and aids the performance of translocated and systemic pesticides. In areas where the water is alkaline, this product acidifies and buffers, tending to reduce hydrolysis of and increase the life expectancy of pesticides such as organophosphates. NO FOAM NUTRIENT FOLIAR SOLUTION 8-8-2 is designed to increase the absorption and utilization of micronutrients and is formulated from raw materials which will not tend to burn foliage. It may be used on agricultural, forestry, turf and ornamental, industrial and non-cropland sites.

Tank mixtures of this product with copper-based pesticides can be phytotoxic due to increased solubility of copper. Test applications to part of the crop are advisable to assess potential phytotoxicity before full scale commercial applications. The following crops are known to be sensitive to foliar applications of copper: broccoli, cabbage, celery, cucurbits, grapes, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, pears, plums, prunes, spinach and strawberries.


Specific use rates will vary with conditions of application such as water hardness, application method, equipment, spray droplet size, condition of foliage, etc. Also, higher rates than those below may be used if recommended by pesticide labeling.
