Are your herbicides not performing like they use to? Maybe it's time to check your water! 

Water is one of the cheapest inputs into a crop and can be one of our biggest assets. The quality of the water utilized is a key factor in determining the efficacy of a pesticide or foliar fertilizer application.

Get the most out of each pass - Use ModipHy

Water Conditioning = Delivers the Genetic Potential

Whether it’s a preseed burndown, in-crop or pre-harvest, attention should be paid to spray water quality because hard water (cations) can bind to pesticides - decreasing efficacy. By softening the spray water in the tank, ModipHy helps ensure that growers get the most out of each pass over the field. 

  • Adding ModipHy to your tank mix can maximize chemistry efficacy by balancing your pH and softening hard water.
  • ModipHy neutralizes the free ions present in hard water, preventing pesticides from reacting with hard water cations like magnesium, iron and calcium.
  • ModipHy’s surfactant package ensures that more herbcide gets into the leaf reducing the effect of these plant-borne cations.
  • ModipHy helps glyphosate penetrate dusty or dirt-covered weeds.
