In this course, you will learn how adjuvants help growers maximize herbicide applications and minimize off-target drift as well as crop protection methods for delayed planting.

Learn how different modes of action can increase biological activity and modify various physical properties of a spray solution. Adjuvant-use maximizes herbicide applications through increasing stability and solubility, lowering volatilization, limiting suspension, ensuring optimal droplet size and more. You will explore the different kinds of adjuvants and their uses, including West Central’s Veracity™ Elite II, Cerium™ Elite and Jackhammer™ Elite.

This course also covers delayed spring planting and the precautions to take to yield the best results. With the negative effects of late spring planting such as increased risk of pests and disease, it is important to anticipate challenges to lower devastating yield loss. Products such as Cygin, Salient and Sativa IMF can increase crop protection later in the season.

An important part of crop protection is understanding the issue at hand and the best product options to avoid it. Drift and volatility can lead to ineffective herbicide applications and other damaging effects. In this course you will learn the difference between the two, how to identify them, why they occur and how to better control them.

This course will discuss different drift reduction agents such as Cognitive 1™ and Sedate Max™ and how to make 2018 the best year for drift control.
