"Performance Maximizer"Improve pesticide coverage for greater crop yield.

What is APSA-80? APSA-80, a product of Amway is an All Purpose Spray Adjuvant which on mixing with insecticides, fungicides, herbicides and defoliators increases their efficacy. As a result of that, the crops, fruits and vegetable are better protected from diseases, pests and unwanted herbs, resulting in more productive yield. This adjuvant has 80% of active ingredients and this can be mixed in any solution to improve its performance many times. Note: APSA-80 is neither an insecticide nor a fertiliser. It is an adjuvant that enhances the performances of insecticides and fertilisers and also helps water or solution to penetrate deeper. How does APSA-80 work? APSA-80 contains special elements - 'Non Ironic Surfactants' that break down the surface tension of the water. These surfactants work on the surface of the water droplet to reduce its tendency to bead up by pulling the water and the wax on the leaf surface together, reducing the water's surface tension and causing the water droplet to spread out. When the water used in pesticide sprays spreads out more evenly, the result is much better pesticide coverage. Adding APSA-80 helps insecticides, defoliators and foliar fertilisers to penetrate the surface of the leaf faster and more evenly. How to Use APSA-80? With Insecticides, Fungicides, Foliar Fertilisers and Defoliators. * Prepare a solution of insecticides/fungicides/foliar fertilisers/defoliators and water. Follow the mixing instructions recommended by the pesticide manufacturer. * Mix 5ml of APSA-80 (1/4th capful) per 15 litres of pesticide or foliar fertiliser solution. * Spray normally on the crop. With Post-Emergent Herbicides: * Make a solution of the post-emergent herbicide to be used with water in the spray tank. Follow the mixing instructions recommended by the herbicide manufacture. * Mix 20ml of APSA-80 (1 capful) per 15 litres of post emergent herbicide solution. * Spray normally on the crop. For use as an Irrigation Aid or in Golf Courses: * Mix 160ml of APSA-80 (8 capfuls) in at least 80 litres per acre. The dosage of APSA-80 will remain 160ml per acre of land even if the water required is more than 80 litres to cover an acre of land. * About 12 hours before irrigating, spray this mixture of APSA-80 and water directly on the entire land area which is to be irrigated. Spray directly on the soil. * Let the water flow into the land and see how it penetrates the soil better and also spreads better. * The above mentioned spray of APSA-80 will remain effective for about 4 weeks. Repeat the above steps for irrigation after a month.

Institute of Pesticide Formulation Technology (IPFT) was established in May 1991, as a Govt. of India Society registered under the Societies Act under the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, Govt. of India. IPFT caters to the needs of not only the Indian pesticides industry but also of the Asia and Pacific region. It is recognized by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). IPFT is located at Gurgaon, Haryana. Test : This study was carried out with sugarcane at the experimental research farms of IPFT. The volume of spray used was 200 litres per acre.
