PINEY RESIN EMULSION, (SPRAY-STAY,Spodnam),containing di-1-p-menthene with non-ionic surfactant in the form of a stable emulsion, is a sticker-extender, non-ionic sticker, spreader designed to extend the life of pesticides. At normal rates, dries rapidly, affords shower-protection when touch dry, and rain protection approximately 30 minutes later. It forms a flexible film on the surface of the plant, binding the pesticide and protecting it from erosion by rain. At higher rates (1:10 to 1:40 of water), when sprayed on plant leaves, is an anti-transpirant reducing moisture loss and wilting during periods of stress, e.g. transplanting, drought, etc. It is 100% organic and is biodegradable, and it can be used on edible crops.
A PINEY RESIN EMULSION that is practically applicable as an antibacterial agent, fungicide or pest repellant. There is provided a piney resin emulsion of 5 to 50 average polymerization degree consisting of a polymer of piney compound having a hydroxyl or formyl group and a carbon to carbon double bond, or a copolymer, or hydrolyzate thereof, from the piney compound and a vinyl ester compound, wherein when the piney resin emulsion is a copolymer, or hydrolyzate thereof, from the piney compound and a vinyl ester compound, the copolymerization ratio of piney compound and vinyl ester compound or vinyl alcohol is in the range of 1:2 to 1:25 (molar ratio).
Functions and Benefits:
Recommended for use with all pesticide products and soluble fertilizers. Forms a durable film that holds a pesticide on the crop foliage. Helps penetrate and spread pesticides over foliage. Prevents the removal of pesticides from the leaf surface by wind and rainfall. Reduces pesticide volatilization. Screens the pesticide residue from ultraviolet rays which often cause pesticide degradation. Will not foam or clog nozzles.
Crop: Apples, Citrus, Corn, Cotton, Peanuts, Rice, Soybeans, Tobacco, Vegetables, Wheat.
Application: Aerial or Ground.
