VC-700 is an acidifying and penetrating surfactant for use with many agrichemical products.
Acidifying and Penetrating Surfactant
Helps reduce fine droplets to prevent spray drift
For use with Herbicides, Insecticides and Foliar Fertilizers
The importance of managing pH
The acidifying nature of VC-700 optimises the pH of the spray water for spray applications where an
acidic pH is preferred. This is particularly useful for certain insecticides which can be quickly
degraded in alkaline conditions. The acidic pH can also assist the uptake of certain systemic
Wetting, Spreading and Penetrating
The lecithin and surfactants in VC-700 help spray droplets to adhere to spread across
VC-700 will help to increase the droplet size produced from hydraulic nozzles, thus reducing the
proportion of fine droplet which may be prone to drift off-target.
For Glyphosate and Glyphosate mixes use 250 – 500mL/100L to optimise the spray water pH and
assist spreading and penetration and reduce off-target damage.
To reduce alkaline hydrolysis of pH sensitive insecticide eg Dimethoate use 100mL/100L
To improve uptake of foliar fertilizers use 300 – 500mL/100L
