Aqua Tick™ is a unique adjuvant designed to adjust the quality of water in the spray tank and maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of chemical sprays.
It improves pesticide performance by buffering the pH to a mildly acidic level to maximise alkaline hydrolysis and improve uptake by the plant. It will also bind with dissolved salts in hard water that can adhere to pesticide molecules and slow down or even prevent uptake to the chemical to the plant. It is used to help aid the effectiveness of certain weed killers such as glyphosate.
Aqua Tick™ softens hard water by completely and irreversibly sequestering harmful cat-ions such as Calcium and Magnesium which are present in hard water. It also acidifies the water to approximately pH 5, which prevents alkaline hydrolysis.
Aqua Tick must be added to the water before the pesticide.
- Half fill spray tank and begin agitation.
- Add the correct quantity of Aqua Tick for the final water volume.
- Continue filling the spray tank to the required volume.
- Add pesticide(s) as directed.
Soft - 40/50ml per 100L of water
