Types of adjuvants in horticulture

Adjucants are divided into three main groups: absorption improvers, dissolving agents and sutures. The use of these three types of adjuvant crop protection in combination with chemical crop protection results in even leaf distribution, increased leaf absorption and improved adhesion of the active ingredients. The term 'effluent' is often still used to refer to adjuvants. However, effluents are only one category of adjuvants used in combination with chemical pesticides. A formulation of a plant protection product often also contains an adjuvant . These adjuvants are added for various reasons:
  • An adjuvant ensures that the plant protection product ends up in the right place in the crop;
  • An adjuvant prevents the crop protection product from splashing. The product remains where it ends up;
  • An adjuvant prevents rinsing in the event of rain, for example;
  • An adjuvant ensures better distribution and absorption by the leaf or plant;
  • An adjuvant protects the crop protection product against UV light. This ensures that the effect of the crop protection product remains effective.

In addition to the three main groups, there are other adjuvants that are used in greenhouse horticulture but fall outside these three main groups. Some adjuvants are used, for example, to promote the dissolution of a crop protection product in water. However, when choosing and buying an adjuvant , various factors must be taken into account: formulation of a crop protection product, application technique, the crop and the climate in the greenhouse. If you are in doubt about the use of an adjuvant in combination with a crop protection product, always ask our crop protection specialists for advice about adjuvants.
