HASTEN-COTTON; spray adjuvant is a blend of esterified cottonseed oil andnon-ionic surfactants that has :
Proven cost effective performance for over 10 years with a wide range of agricultural products
Excellent plant and insect penetrating and wetting properties
An internationally recognised tradename and reputation forreliability
Approval by Environmental Protection Agencies in manycountries including the USA,
Renewable material – Cottonseed oil – as its base raw material
A high quality formulation providing easy dispersion and stableemulsion characteristics,and
International Patents granted and pending.
HASTEN-COTTON is a unique spray adjuvant that has been
designed to improve the efficacy of a wide range of agricultural
The Active Constituent in
HASTEN-COTTON is derived from Cottonseed Oil..
When HASTEN is mixed with certain defoliant products and
applied in the field, the non-ionic surfactants in the HASTEN
formulation help to retain spray droplets and ensure thorough
coverage of plant surfaces. The esterified oil in the HASTEN
formulation will retard crystallization of water soluble defoliants
as water evaporates from spray droplets. It will also increase the
penetration of systemic defoliants through a plant’s epicuticular
waxy surface leading to enhanced defoliation. It is this dual
action of surfactant and esterified oil which makes HASTEN a
very effective adjuvant with certain defoliation programs.
HASTEN is suitable for use with various insecticides used in Cotton. HASTEN can used to increase the efficacy of systemic insecticides such as Synthetic Pyrethroid insecticides and Movento*. See Directions for Use on HASTEN-COTTON label and on the Insecticide product label.
HASTEN is a non-ionic formulation which makes it compatible with most defoliants. In fact, HASTEN has been used with defoliants around the world and has been found to be physically compatible with major defoliant products.
HASTEN has been tested and evaluated by universities, lifescience
companies, research organizations and independent researchers
over many years. It has been established that HASTEN is a very
effective adjuvant for improving the performance of certain defoliation programs.
HASTEN is successfully used by farmers in many different countries around the world with a diverse range of agricultural products including defoliants. In Australia and the USA,
HASTEN is recognised as a leading adjuvant by farmers,
distributors and lifescience companies.
HASTEN is endorsed by major manufacturers for use with the following Defoliation products
? DROPP*, echem Thidiazuron 500 and other Thidiazuron products
? DROPP*ULTRAMAX, eChem Thi-Ultra, and other Thidiazuron + Diuron products
? ETee* Defoliant
HASTEN may be used in place of non-ionic surfactants or crop oil concentrates when permitted by defoliant labels. When using DROPP® Ultra in Australia, use HASTEN at 0.5 Litres per hectare. We recommend that a compatibility test be conducted before using HASTEN with other defoliants on a large scale.
When using with Movento* 240SC, apply HASTEN at 1.0L/ha. Typically, HASTEN is added to the spray tank at a concentration of
0.5-1.0% when spray volumes are between 50-100 Litres per hectare. In situations where the agricultural practice is to use a higher volume than 100 Litres per hectare, HASTEN is typically used at 0.5-1.0 Litres per hectare.
Extensive testing and evaluation of HASTEN over the past 14 years
by universities, lifescience companies, research organizations and
independent researchers has proven that HASTEN is a very
effective adjuvant for improving the performance of agricultural
Based on independent university studies, it is well
established that esterified vegetable oil products out perform
both emulsified petroleum and vegetable oil based products
in many situations.
’S commercial success is confirmation that it can provide
important cost effective benefits to the agricultural industry.
