New surfactant added to Wilbur-Ellis organic line

A new surfactant has been added to the Wilbur-Ellis Agribusiness organic product line. This expanding portfolio of OMRI-listed products offers growers a cutting-edge approach to organic integration and crop production.

“INFOLIUM-EAä is a nonionic surfactant, specifically formulated to bring conventional functionality to an organic surfactant,” Jason Ellsworth, organic portfolio manager, Wilbur-Ellis Agribusiness, said in a news release. “By increasing both the spreadability of the spray and the active ingredients’ penetration into the leaf tissue, INFOLIUM-EA helps pesticides perform better.”

INFOLIUM-EA improves weed and pest control in multiple ways:

  • Reduces surface tension between the spray droplets and the plant cuticle
  • Promotes quick wetting and spreading to produce a more uniform spray deposit
  • Efficiently moves the active ingredient into the water channels of the leaf
  • Increases absorption of the product

Organic growers have a high-quality, high-performing, consistent and reliable surfactant choice with INFOLIUM-EA. It features a unique, patented technology that is safe to use, environmentally friendly and efficacious. This product can be used for application to crops and other sites, including aquatic, non-crop vegetation, turf and ornamental.

“Consumers are asking for sustainably grown, wholesome and organic products,” Ellsworth said. “We’re dedicated to providing growers with the resources they need to produce high-value organic crops in order to meet the demands of today’s consumers.

Wilbur-Ellis brings decades of experience and resources to help get your organic business off the ground – from consultation and regulatory support to product recommendations, habitat creation and transition management. Connect with your local Wilbur-Ellis expert to find the right organic solutions to meet the needs of your business.

Note, INFOLIUM-EA is not registered nor available in the states of Washington and California at this time.

Founded in 1921, the Wilbur-Ellis companies are leading international marketers, distributors and manufacturers of agricultural products, animal nutrients and specialty chemicals and ingredients. By developing strong relationships, making strategic market investments and capitalizing on new opportunities, the Wilbur-Ellis companies have continued to grow the business with sales of over $3 billion.
