Research comparing the leading surfactants showed TriCure AD to be stronger on an ounce per ounce basis than any of the leading competitive products. TriCure AD was shown to hold its strength when rates were reduced, allowing for great rate flexibility, cost savings, as well as greater efficacy toward the end of a spray cycle as product gradually diminishes. Other products tested showed rapid decline in efficacy when rates were dropped below label rates.
Because TriCure AD doesn’t lose its strength at lower rates, it has the most flexible usage rates of any leading soil surfactant. Additionally, because TriCure AD doesn’t depend on standard HW chemistries to treat upper soil surfaces, it can be safely applied at higher rates to achieve seasonal control without the risk of holding too much water at the surface – as is the case with most HW – or the risk of phytotoxicity that is common with many “seasonal” products.
