EMBRECE-EA has been developed to improve the performance of fungicides, insecticides and miticides
Wilbur-Ellis, a provider of precision agriculture, crop protection, seed and nutritional products, has introduced a new blend of surfactants called EMBRECE-EA.
Part of the company’s ECO ADVANTAGE line, the new surfactant blend has been developed to improve the performance of fungicides, insecticides and miticides by enhancing wetting and spreading of spray materials.
EMBRECE-EA’s blend of nonionic surfactants helps growers in better wetting of their selected spray material
EMBRECE-EA’s blend of nonionic surfactants (NIS) provides growers with advanced coverage and better wetting of their selected spray material.
It will help in more product stays on the leaf surface, as well as facilitates rapid absorption and improved control of the targeted pest.
EMBRECE-EA also provides growers with more application flexibility based on the crop grown, in addition to increasing performance.
A lower use rate (1pt/100gal) is suitable for cover sprays, and higher use rates (1qt/100gal) are suitable for crops with a thicker layer of wax on the leaf surface. It can also be used with difficult formulations such as soluble concentrates.
Wilbur-Ellis senior formulation chemist Jim Glatzhofer said: “EMBRECE-EA can provide a high-performance option to organosilicone-containing adjuvants where there are concerns about phytotoxicity, spray mix run-off and toxicity to beneficial insects.”
In November 2019, Wilbur-Ellis acquired speciality liquid chemical manufacturer Nachurs Alpine Solutions (NAS) for an undisclosed sum.
Established in 1946, NAS serves the customers in the precision agriculture, transportation, energy, and diversified industrial sectors in North America.
Wilbur-Ellis provides a range of agricultural inputs, including crop protection chemicals, organic and sustainable options, fertiliser, seed and technology.
Wilbur-Ellis companies are international marketers and distributors of agricultural products, animal feed and speciality chemicals and ingredients.
