SPRINTA Superwetter is a nonionic wetting agent of the
organosilicone type which is compatible with a range of
agricultural products. It can be used in most water qualities,
however avoid mixing in strongly acidic or alkaline situations
such as acidic buffer products.
SPRINTA Superwetter will reduce the surface tension of water
to about 22mN/m when applied at 0.1%v/v which is significantly
lower surface tension than most other nonionic wetting agents
(typically about 30mN/m). The reduced surface tension enables far
greater spreading of spray deposits, especially in difficult to wet
situations. In certain situations, spray volumes can be reduced
without compromising spray coverage. Avoid using in very high
water volume applications as SPRINTA may increase run-off and
loss of active ingredient.
TRIAL 1 - CONTROL OF POWDERY MILDEW ON GRAPES WITH RUBIGAN
When applied with the fungicide Rubigan to control powdery
mildew on grapes, SPRINTA provided superior control to Rubigan
alone or Rubigan with a Nonylphenol nonionic surfactant (NIS).
The difference was most notable within the bunches where
SPRINTA enables the fungicide to spread more effectively
on the difficult to wet grape surfaces.
TRIAL 2 – CONTROL OF MELON APHID IN POTATOES
SPRINTA significantly enhances the activity of both of the
systemic insecticides Dimethoate and Pymetrozine. The greater
efficacy is attributed to the adjuvant’s ability to increase spray
droplet retention and improve foliar uptake.
The superwetting properties of SPRINTA are most suited
to products, crops or pests which require thorough surface
coverage for optimum performance.
control of bracken, gorse and other woody weeds with
Metsulfuron-methyl and/or Glyphosate herbicides
use of certain fungicides on grapes
control of certain mites, aphids and other crawling
pests using various miticide and insecticide products
Increased performance of agricultural products
when used as directed
Enables spreading of spray deposits in even
the mostly challenging of situations
Provides greater spreading than traditional nonionic wetting
agent products when used at the same rates
Compatible with most agricultural products and spray water
Evaluation and Testing
General use with fungicides, insecticides and foliar nutrients
30 – 60 ml/100L spray volume.
For general use with Herbicides, apply SPRINTA at
50 – 200ml/100L. Use the higher rate when applying low
water volumes or when controlling very difficult to wet weeds
such as Gorse bracken or woody weeds.
For more information see SPRINTA label and always refer to the
label of the products which are being used with it.
When using SPRINTA Superwetter for the first time in sensitive
crops test by applying to a small area and check for symptoms
of phytotoxicity before large-scale use.
