Reduce Drift and Improve On-Target Deposition of Your Spray Application

Improve on-target deposition and coverage of your spray application and reduce off-target movement with Drift-X DRT.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), increases the VMD (Volume Median Diameter) and generates a more uniform droplet size.Drift-X DRT has broad use with most crop protection products that are labeled for use in agriculture, forestry, roadside, industrial, non-crop,

Micronutrients Important for Soybean Yields

There are 16 essential elements that are important for healthy growth and development of soybeans.  These include the non-mineral elements - carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and mineral elements which include macronutrients found in most fertilizers - nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium (potash); secondary macronutrients - calcium, magnesium and sulfur; and micronutrients - boron, chloride, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc. Soybeans were once thought to be able to survive off of the residual levels of micronutrients left behind in the soil, but the demand for higher-yielding crops is removing more micronutrients

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

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.

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),

Protect Those Pods

By: Dan Davidson, DTN Contributing Agronomist, July 9, 2015 If soybeans played politics, they would definitely fall into a red state. The plant takes a decidedly conservative stance by shedding at least 60% of its pods and flowers when it feels stressed or feels there are simply too many pods to support. Soybean yield is based on how many seeds go in the hopper. However, what we sometimes fail to remember is that each pod contains a fairly consistent average of 2.5 seeds per pods. That means getting the plant

Stay Ahead of Yield-Robbing Soybean Nutrient Deficiencies

Early nutrient deficiencies negatively affect the growth and development of your soybean crop and rob it of its highest yield potential. The best way to avoid nutrient deficiencies is to proactively supply your crop with needed nutrients before any symptoms become visible. The most critical times to apply supplemental nutrients are during the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth stages, during periods of great growth activity, and, if necessary, when deficiency symptoms are present. When soybeans need a boost in nitrogen, potassium and/or sulfur levels, Coastal’s Quantum SDS is the

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
