Get Better Coverage with Burndown and Residual Applications

Start clean and stay clean this spring with the right herbicides for both contact and residual  control and with Coastal’s Spectrum to ensure good coverage, penetration and retention, even in less than ideal conditions. To reduce drift and get more of the active ingredient to the target, also use Coastal’s Drift-X in the tank-mix.

Why is Spectrum essential for your herbicide application and how does it work?

It contains:

Highly refined methylated seed oils that provide superior coverage, penetration and retention properties
A two phase organo-silicone surfactant system that optimizes spreading and [...]

    Is Your Crop Getting the Most from the Nutrients in Your Soil?

Is Your Crop Getting the Most from the Nutrients in Your Soil?

Unlock the nutrient potential of your crop for early season growth, strong root development and improved plant vigor.  Virtually any crop needs one of Coastal’s Advance products at planting to maximize yields, whether a starter program is used or not. The common ingredient in our Advance products is a blend of three natural carboxylic acids that solubilize nutrients to make them more available to the crop and improve absorption and uptake.

Post Harvest Burndown

Weeds don’t take time off…Neither can you!

The battle of weed control is a numbers game.  Reduce the weeds and eliminate the seed to win the war.  This has to be a year-round battle because weeds do not take time off.

A Post Harvest Burndown is effective behind any crop harvested prior to heavy frost. It:

Reduces seed bank in the following crop
Reduces weed population in the next crop
Helps fight resistance
Makes weed management easier and less costly

Get More From Your Cotton Defoliation Program

The purpose of cotton defoliation is to chemically accelerate the natural senescence (aging) process. Defoliant products are designed to stimulate this natural process. MATRIXX improves the performance of your cotton defoliation program by getting defoliant active materials to the target faster, more thoroughly and more efficiently through better coverage of leaves and bolls and by better penetration of the canopy.

How Matrixx Works – Leaf Penetration and Boll Coverage
Many defoliant products must enter the target leaf and plant surfaces to achieve results.  Matrixx works to reduce the surface tension of [...]

Reduce Spray Drift

Important considerations for reducing spray drift include proper nozzle selection; spray technique including spray pressure, angle and application speed; evaluation of environmental conditions such as wind direction and temperature inversions; buffer zones and susceptible crops. To maximize drift reduction potential, add Drift-X DRT to your drift reduction plan.

Drift-X DRT (Drift Reduction Technology) is a consistently high-performing deposition and drift management agent that delivers 20% more product to the target and provides uniform coverage on the targeted surface. Drift-X DRT reduces the number of spray droplet fines (less than 100 microns), [...]

Unlock Nutrient Potential for Your Crops

Maximize yield potential by giving your crop the advantage for early season growth, strong root development and improved plant vigor. Whether a starter program is used or not, most any crop needs one of Coastal’s Advance products at planting. The common ingredient in our Advance products, a blend of three natural carboxylic acids, solubilizes nutrients for better availability, absorption and uptake.

Clean Up Weeds This Fall for a Head Start in Spring

Resistant weeds are an ongoing threat to crop yields, and likely will be an even bigger problem in 2016 due to the cutback in crop protection inputs in the past year. Weed competition affects yield potential; that’s why it’s important to stay ahead of weeds by keeping fields clean. To give crops the early advantage in the spring, clean-up is needed this fall. Fall herbicide applications are a relatively new but growing practice because of successful results achieved in using residual herbicides to combat resistant weeds.

A fall burndown with [...]

Improve Performance of Cotton Defoliation

When selecting a cotton harvest aid program that is best for your fields, one thing is certain – include MATRIXX in the tank-mix. Matrixx improves the performance of cotton defoliant spray applications by facilitating thorough, uniform coverage on cotton leaf surfaces, allowing for quicker penetration.

Matrixx is proven to increase boll opening and enhance leaf drop when added to the defoliant application compared to applications without Matrixx.

Based on a unique blend of organo-modified siloxane surfactant and other nonionic surfactants, Matrixx is a 100% active ingredient surfactant that provides excellent wetting, [...]

Boron Deficiencies in Cotton

Cotton plants need Boron throughout their life cycle, but maintaining adequate availability of this important micronutrient is crucial to blooming cotton.  Even though small amounts are needed, Boron is essential for healthy growth during flowering and boll development, and aids in the efficient utilization of other nutrients, particularly nitrogen and potassium.

Because Boron is immobile in the plant, deficiency symptoms appear on new growth.  Boron deficiencies may show some of the following symptoms:¹

Abnormal uppermost leaves
Aborted flowers
Abnormal shedding of squares and young bolls
Abnormal fruit shed which can result in [...]

    Improve Spray Application Performance in Cotton with Matrixx

Improve Spray Application Performance in Cotton with Matrixx

Early season competition from weeds and thrips can cause substantial loss to cotton yields. Therefore, it’s important not only to use the right crop protection products but also to use the right spray adjuvant to get maximum performance from the products you use. Matching the right adjuvant to the spray application is key to getting the most from your over-the-top spray.

For crop protection products requiring a nonionic surfactant, Coastal’s Matrixx is often the product of choice because of its rapid, uniform coverage capabilities. Matrixx is a 100% active ingredient [...]
