WET-AS Spray Adjuvant
Wet-As Spray adjuvant is a unique mixture of ammonium sulphate with built in wetter. Wet-As is designed for use with glyphosate and other non-selective herbicides.
Increases the performance of Glyphosate under a variety of
conditions and water qualities.
High strength formulation reduces handling, storage and
Convenience of wetter and Ammonium Sulphate in an easy to
use liquid formulation.
Can compatibilize incompatible product mixes.
Safe to use and soft on the environment.
Ammonium sulphate and Surfactants (wetting agents) are widely
accepted and used additives for improving Glyphosate
Wet-AS is the first product available in Australia
which contains full strength (410 g/L) Ammonium Sulphate and
built in Wetter (158 g/L).
See product info sheet for trial results
Trial 1 clearly shows the adverse effect that hard water can have
on Glyphosate performance. Wet-AS at the low rate (0.25%)
provides protection from hard water (340ppm as CaCO3) whilst the
moderate rate (0.5%) further protects and enhances the effects of
Trial 2 also shows the hard water protection Wet-AS provides
and that the wetting agents in Wet-AS give additional benefit
over Ammonium Sulphate alone.
When used as directed, Wet-AS will
protect Glyphosate and other herbicides from detrimental
effects of hard water in the spray tank.
reduce antagonism between certain herbicides.
increase uptake of Glyphosate and other herbicides to increase
increase droplet retention.
increase droplet spreading.
Soft to moderately hard water (up to approximately 340ppm as CaCO3)
The low to moderate rate of Wet-AS (0.25 – 0.5%) will increase
the efficacy of Glyphosate as well as protect it from hard water.
Hard Water and Very Hard Water
Wet-AS at 0.5% will provide protection from hard water up to
If water hardness is greater than 600ppm then
Wet-AS should be applied at 1%.
Wet-AS (at maximum rate of 2%) can be used to help overcome
tank-mix incompatibility commonly seen when mixing certain
triazine products with Glyphosate.
