The benefits of Elasto G5
Elasto G5 improves uptake and efficacy which is is achieved in a safe way for both the crop and the environment. Better coverage can be achieved without the risk of run-off or phytotox and is safe for beneficials as well as fitting into an IPM programme.
The physical behaviour of Elasto G5 improves retention and spreading which subsequently reduces the risk of run off. With better spreading ability, better coverage is achieved in conjunction with better uptake of the active ingredient. With 16 years scientific research to support Elasto G5, the database of knowledge can help you maximise the use of Elasto G5 in your crop protection programme.
Elasto G5 gives you more flexibility. The improved efficacy you will see by using Elasto G5 leads to less use of chemicals, ensuring you have a more sustainable production system, no matter which disease or pest you need to control in a variety of crop types.
The added value of Elasto G5 is highly influenced by the choice of active ingredient and crop you are applying to. Using a concentration of 0.25% (250cc/100lt) gives the best results. The table below demonstrates a range of active ingredients and how Elasto G5 has performed alongside.
