Nov 6, 2017Aqua-Yield introduces Nano-Pro herbicide adjuvant
At only 4 oz./acre application rate, Draper, Utah-based Aqua-Yield has introduced Nano-Pro. In university and field testing, Nano-Pro was added to herbicide treatments and showed a consistent increase in weed kill. Data shows that weed kill efficacy improved an average of 29 percent.
Aqua-Yield CEO and co-founder Clark Bell said there will be immediate availability of Nano-Pro for general farm usage in easy-to-use and store 2.5-gallon containers.
“Nano-Pro is different from other herbicide adjuvants because it contains an aquamized formulation to more effectively deliver herbicide to plant cells through Aqua-Yield’s proprietary Nano-Shield delivery system.” Bell said. “Our testing/data indicates that with Nano-Pro, farmers will see a faster kill of weeds and a higher kill on tougher weeds. Our propriety and patented nano-formulation promotes cellular access to weeds and Nano-Pro™ can be used in combination with other great herbicide products.”
Each 2.5-gallon container of Nano-Pro will service 80 acres of farmland weed control. It is available through Aqua-Yield’s regional sales force and distribution partners and is delivered directly to farmers. As an adjuvant, Nano-Pro is Aqua-Yield’s next step in making the agri-chemical supply chain better. Aqua-Yield will introduce more products in the coming months.
Aqua-Yield Chief Science Officer Landon Bunderson, Ph.D., said: “NanoPro has been under development for several years. We’re excited to finally release a totally new adjuvant that will serve as additional help to farmers who are struggling with more effective weed control. NanoPro is the most exciting technology we have released to date.”
