Agricultural Silicone Additives

Mar 13, 2019

    In the operation of farming, the use of various pesticides is essential, but when you buy pesticides, have you encountered this situation, no matter what pesticide you buy, the dealer will recommend silicone additives to you. So what is the use of this silicone? Here's a comprehensive look at everything about this silicone additive.

    First, let's understand what silicone is:

    Agricultural silicone is mainly composed of ethoxylated trisiloxane, which is a polyether modified chemically synthesized special silicone surfactant. With excellent spreadability, excellent permeability, high efficiency of systemic absorption and conductivity, it can effectively reduce the surface tension of pesticides and enhance the wetting and adhesion of pesticides on the surface of plants.

    Farmers' friends know that pesticides are something we must use in crop management, but there are drawbacks to using pesticides. The first is the cost issue, and the second is the environmental pollution problem. Pesticide production costs are high and prices are high. If a large number of pesticides are used, it will increase the cost of planting land and reduce farmers' income. For the environment, the large-scale use of pesticides leads to environmental pollution and pesticide residues, which seriously affects the ecological environment. In the process of using pesticides, if the concentration is too low, the insecticidal effect will not be achieved. If the concentration is too high, it will easily lead to phytotoxicity, and the pesticide residue will exceed the standard and pollute the environment.

    Adding pesticide synergists to pesticides is the most versatile method. Pesticide synergists are an important auxiliaries in pesticides and have no activity in themselves. However, when used in combination with corresponding pesticides, the utilization rate of pesticides can be significantly improved. Silicone is one of the most widely used synergists in agricultural production. What are the characteristics of silicone and its additives?


1. The excellent wetting property of silicone makes the liquid spread rapidly on the leaf surface, enhances the adhesion of the liquid, improves the utilization rate of the pesticide, reduces the loss of the liquid, and prevents the pesticide from infiltrating into the ground, causing water pollution.


2. Silicone additives can significantly enhance the adhesion and spreading power of the liquid on the surface of plants or pests, improve the utilization rate of pesticides, speed up the absorption of pesticides by pesticides, and improve the insecticidal effect to a certain extent, thereby reducing the number of sprays. Reduce the amount of pesticides used.


3. Silicone promotes the penetration of the system through the pores, improves the resistance to rain, and does not require refilling after rain.


4. It can reduce the use of pesticides per unit area and water consumption, reduce pesticide pollution and reduce pesticide residues. It can be used together with insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators.
