Effect of pH and Temperature On “Organosilicon Spreaders” Used as Agricultural Spray Adjuvant
Keywords:organosilicon spreaders, surfactants, agricultural spray adjuvant, pesticides, spreading, spreaders, effect of pH, effect of temperature
Various products are being used for enhancing crop quality and quantity in modern agriculture throughout the world. Most of these products are administered to the plant by foliar spraying. Pesticides like insecticides, miticides, bactericides and fungicides are aimed to plant protection. Foliar fertilizers like NPK, secondary and micronutrients, plant growth regulators and promoters and used for plant nutrition and growth. Lack of or limited spreading capacity, penetration and wetting properties of these products limit their efficacy in field. Sometimes spraying at high temperature and inappropriate pH of spray solution also cause loss of active ingredient/s. Hence studies of these products under various temperature conditions and pH range are conducted.
