Although agricultural silicone is not a "cure-all", its excellent efficacy under scientific use cannot be denied. Therefore, E-nong has summarized several measures and methods for the scientific and rational use of silicone adjuvant for agriculture for reference by farmer friends.
Since the efficiency of silicone adjuvant for agriculture is good, it is advisable to use less rather than more. The amount should be strictly controlled. In general, the dilution multiple of ordinary organic silicone additives should be at least 2000-3000 times or more (there are differences among different crops, different periods, and different fertilizers). In addition, commercialized organic silicone has recommended dosage that must be strictly followed.
In the process of compounding with medicine and fertilizer (only with foliar fertilizer), attention should not be given to mixing medicine with organic silicone additives first, which will reduce the efficacy. It is not advisable to mix with potassium, calcium, magnesium and other foliar fertilizers. When compounding, the pesticide and fertilizer should be diluted first and then the silicone adjuvant for agriculture should be added to avoid an overly acidic or alkaline environment, so as to improve the effect.
When using the silicone adjuvant for agriculture to mix with pesticides and fertilizers, the changes in the external environment should be taken into account. Although it has a good ability to resist rainwater erosion, short-term precipitation will affect its effectiveness. Therefore, attention should be paid to changes in the weather before use, and there should be no precipitation on the day after use. In high-temperature environments (usually above 30℃), the use should be cautious, either by reducing the amount of silicone used or avoiding use in high temperature.
Since the silicone adjuvant for agriculture has a strong auxiliary penetration effect, the high permeability should be considered in weeding, insecticide and sterilization to avoid harm to crops.
For crops that have waxy leaves and are less permeable to ordinary drugs, the use of silicone with drugs and fertilizers can improve the efficacy and fertilizer efficiency. For crops that have more stomata and are more permeable to ordinary drugs, the use should be cautious. The resistance ability of crops varies at different stages. Silicone adjuvant for agriculture should not be used during sensitive growth stages such as seedlings and flowering periods.
For farmer friends who have not used silicone adjuvants for agriculture before or do not understand crop feedback, small-scale experiments should be conducted before large-scale use.
Note that the function of organic silicone is to save medicine and fertilizer. If the medicine and fertilizer are used at the original concentration under normal circumstances, there is no need to add the silicone adjuvant for agriculture.
During use, the applicator must protect themselves and avoid direct contact during configuration. Respiratory and eye protection measures should be taken during spraying.
Finally, it should be emphasized that additives are not necessary, and using them is not a must when applying pesticides and fertilizers.
The above are the measures and methods for the scientific and rational use of the silicone adjuvant for agriculture that we have summarized. We hope it will be helpful to farmer friends.
Finally, it should be noted that there is no perfect thing in the world, and the silicone adjuvant for agriculture is obviously not a "cure-all". Farmer friends can only avoid the possible harm caused by it and give full play to its effectiveness under scientific and rational use.
