Those of you who attended our Research Farm Tour a couple weeks ago will remember the demonstration we did using HiWett Super Spreader. Corey and I put this video together for those of you who couldn't make it to the tour or haven't seen HiWett in action.
Hiwett is a "new generation organosilicone blend specifically designed for deposition and coverage." The blended nature of HiWett means it retains excellent spreading capability while reducing the danger of stomatal flooding which has caused some of the tissue damage we have sometimes seen with the pure silicone super spreaders. HiWett Has an especially good fit with low spray volumes and target plants that particularly difficult to wet due to hairy leaves that don't allow water droplets to reach the leaf surface.
Check out the video below to see HiWett Super Spreader in action and note that we used the same spray bottle and the same five pumps for both the Water+Spray Tracer and the Water+HiWett+Spray Tracer treatments. The difference in coverage is significant!
Talk with your CPS Fieldman if you have any questions or want more information on where HiWett might fit best in your program.
