  • Description

PBreakthru belongs to the group of trisiloxane surfactants which are capable of reducing the surface tension of water to about 22 mN/m. Such a low surface tension allows the rapid coverage and penetration of cuticular waxes and generates a phenomenon known as stomatal flooding. This is the almost immediate entrance of the liquid into the naturally occurring openings in all plant surfaces. This rapid penetration translates into rainfastness since delivery of the pesticide into the plant has been insured and a later rainfall cannot dislodge the residue. Spray coverage is so enhanced as compared to water alone that spray volumes can actually be reduced by up to 30 %. Significant economies can be achieved as less water is required per area thereby either reducing energy cost or extending the area treated by a single spray tank.

 

Advantages

BREAK-THRU® S 240 safeguards the performance pesticides and foliar fertilizers.

  • By delivering the active even under hot and dry conditions
  • By insuring the penetration and coverage of weeds that are mature and hardened
  • By penetrating the dust covered surface of the target plants
  • By wetting and penetrating the waxy surface of weather-hardened plants
  • By providing wetting when penetration in general is very difficult e.g. when a plant has only spikes
  • By protecting from sudden rains hours after treatment
  • By improving coverage when spray volumes are reduced
  • By enhancing the dissolution of solid formulations in the tank e.g. WG and WP


Therefore, BREAK-THRU® S 240 is an extremely versatile product which can be used in pesticide formulations or as a tank adjuvant to enhance the control of pests, diseases and weeds, especially those difficult to control weeds or plants such as gorse. BREAK-THRU® S 240 is not phytotoxic to crops when used as directed.

 

Dosage

Application rates of super spreading trisiloxane surfactants such as BREAK-THRU® S 240:

Row crops:

  • 125 ml/ha with contact pesticides
  • 200 ml/ha with systemic & partly systemic pesticides


Plantation crops and fruit trees:

  • 200 - 300 ml/ha depending on growth stage


These dosages account for various water volumes in order to minimize the risk of run off. To be in line with regulatory compliances, please observe the local label whether a maximum concentration must not be exceeded.

 

RATE RECOMMENDATIONS

For tank-mixtures, pesticides manufacturers may suggest a rate of a non-ionic surfactant to be used with their product. Follow the corresponding label recommendation. Otherwise, BREAK-THRU Wetting Agent S 240 should be applied at rates listed here.
Arable and Vegetable crops Pesticides with systemic action: 200 ml/ha to improve wetting, spreading and uptake.
