WWW.POTATOGROWER.COM 27 Oro Agri • (559) 442-4996 • www.oroagriusa.com ORO-RZ Soil Adjuvant Oro-RZ adjuvant improves the efficacy of soil-applied, pre-emergent fungicides while contributing to better soil health. Oro-RZ improves soil hydraulic conductivity, even in hydroscopic soils, to move the herbicide solution into soil pore spaces. This lowering of hydraulic conductivity and movement into pore spaces helps lay down a uniform barrier in the top few inches of the soil. Because of the low surface tension of Oro-RZ, the herbicide spreads uniformly, eliminating coverage gaps. Oro-RZ also contributes to soil health. It has very low surface tension, so it flows within the micropores in the soil, leading to better aeration and water penetration. Oro-RZ even helps penetrate and break up pockets of hydrophobic soil. These improvements to aeration and soil structure encourage microbial and adventitious root growth and, ultimately, a healthier soil environment. Wetcit Foliar Adjuvant Wetcit, now with TransPhloem technology, is a foliar adjuvant with great benefits for potato growers from pre-plant to harvest. Used at lower rates, it is an excellent spreader for contact herbicides. Used at higher rates, is a superior penetrant that delivers active ingredients to target sites, quicker and in higher concentrations, compared to other adjuvants such as crop oils, methylated seed oils, high-surfactant methylated seed oils, and non-ionic surfactants. This means Wetcit improves the speed and efficacy of systemic herbicides, like Roundup, compared to these other types of adjuvants. Come harvest time, using Wetcit, with your desiccant, will help ensure a great vine kill to improve potato quality and aid in harvesting. The superior performance of Wetcit with contact or systemic pesticides simplifies choosing the right adjuvant for the job and eliminates the need to have several adjuvant products on hand. Vive Crop Protection • (888) 760-0187 • www.vivecrop.com/products Xyler FC New for 2020, Xyler FC is simply the best mixing metalaxyl fungicide available.

AZteroid FC 3.3 AZteroid FC 3.3 provides plant health benefits and disease control, resulting in higher yield and higher quality. AZteroid FC 3.3 is the best-mixing azoxystrobin fungicide available and does not require expensive blending agents or extra equipment. It provides the same proven control of rhizoctonia, black dot and silver scurf as other azoxystrobin products, but with added convenience.
