Coming soon... Hockley Agro set to launch SILILO EVO
New to our ever-expanding range, and arriving next month, is SILILO EVO: a new biodegradable super-spreader.
The excellent SILILO EVO product promotes the rapid coverage of hydrophobic leaf surfaces at concentrations 0.1% or less, thus delivering crop protection and foliar fertilisation more effectively. In addition to this, performance in adverse conditions is improved, in particular for rainfastness.
Its targeting effect allows the spray to reach locations that are not conventionally accessible. It offers improved wetting, targeting, cuticular penetration and stomatal flooding. SILILO EVO greatly reduces the surface tension of a solution, allowing super-spreading. Contact angle is reduced even further than other traditional wetters, with aqueous solutions containing SILILO EVO resulting in a contact angle of zero degrees.
SILILO EVO’s super-spreading results in better uptake of products, reducing required spray volumes and producing an increase in yields. Offering improved rainfastness, with SILILO EVO, rain can be tolerated after one hour with no need for a respray. Extensive field testing has proven its effects with herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and acaricides, PGRs, and micronutrients.
SILILO EVO breaks down in the environment naturally. It is readily biodegradable (OECD 301) with a favourable ecotoxicological profile.
