Apparent Buffer 700
- Acidifying and penetrating surfactant
- Reduce Alkaline Hydrolysis of Dimethoate
- Assists with uptake of Foliar fertilizers
- Assist in management of spray droplet size
350 g/L Soyal Phospholipids & 350 g/L Propionic Acid
Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant can be used where the addition of a wetter/spreader or self emulsifying oil is required or recommended on the agricultural chemical label.
PENETRATION AND WETTER
Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant is a multipurpose adjuvant which is composed of natural surfactants and penetrants derived from soybean oils. These are combined with propionic acid to produce a penetrant, surfactant, acidifier for use with herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, foliar fertilizers and plant growth regulators. The unique properties of Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant enhance the uptake of many systemic herbicides, allowing them to effectively penetrate into leaves, without causing damage to non-target crop plants.
Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant also acts as an acidifier which will reduce pH, in most cases to between 4 and 5. This reduces losses due to alkaline hydrolysis and also assists with the uptake of weak acid herbicides.
DROPLET SIZE MANAGEMENT
Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant will reduce the number of fine droplets (<150 micron) produced by flat fan nozzles, without increasing the number of large spray droplets (>400 micron). Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant will reduce the fine droplets associated with, but not eliminate, off-target movement of the pesticide being used. This is contingent upon good agricultural spraying practise and appropriate nozzle choice. DO NOT use in situations that are conducive to drift. Refer to AIRR Apparent Pty Ltd representative for further advice and stewardship.
Half fill the spray tank with water and commence agitation. Add the required quantity of Apparent Buffer 700 Surfactant then add the recommended quantity of herbicide, insecticide or foliar fertilizer. Continue agitation while topping up the tank and during spraying.
Do not use with copper products.
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT: DANGEROUS TO FISH.
DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used containers.
STORAGE AND DISPOSAL
Store in the closed, original container in a dry, cool, well-ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight.
Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank.
DO NOT dispose of undiluted chemicals on-site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean containers to recycler or designated collection point.
If not recycling, break, crush, or puncture and deliver empty packaging for appropriate disposal to an approved waste management facility.
If an approved waste management facility is not available bury the empty packaging 500 mm below the surface in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots, in compliance with relevant Local, State or Territory government regulations.
DO NOT burn empty containers or product.
Refillable Containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves and return to point of supply for refill or storage.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Wash hands after use.
If poisoning occurs, contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre. Phone Australia 13 11 26.
If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
