ELASTIQ®, ELASTIQ® Ultra

Description

A product in the form of an emulsifiable concentrate for treatment of oilseed rape, sunflower and peas before harvest.

Effectively reduces losses from pod shattering before and during harvest. Does not slow down desiccation and has no adverse effect on maturity or quality of the seed.

After application, ELASTIQ® forms a thin layer of polymer, which dries quickly and forms a semi-permeable polymer membrane on the plants. ELASTIQ® allows the transpiration of water from the plant, but prevents water penetration inside the tissues as plants dry out.

Key Strengths
  • Proprietary Polymer sticker with excellent sticking properties.
  • Reduced pod shattering.
  • Reduced pre-harvest losses caused by “normal” conditions (thunderstorms, hailstorms and gales are not “normal” but “severe” weather conditions).
  • Increased yield and seed quality.
  • Suitable for solo use as well as in tank mixes with desiccants.
