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.

Broadcasting versus Drilling Wheat

The best time to plant wheat in most NC counties is from late September through the first week in November with October being the best month. Unfortunately, this is a busy time of year as soybeans and cotton harvest tend to monopolize our time. Ideally, by Thanksgiving all of your wheat acres should be in the ground. Those who wait until December can get good yields but ultimately they are taking a gamble and would have better results with timely planting.   Using a drill is the best way to

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),

Boost Fall Tillering in Winter Wheat with Impact F

Higher tiller counts in the late fall and early winter have a big impact on yield potential. Early tillering produces larger and more grains per head, which accounts for a high percentage of yield. Wheat needs to go into the winter with enough tillers to indicate good root establishment; a good rule of thumb is a minimum of 3 tillers/plant or 600 tillers/square yard. Managing nitrogen applications is a key factor affecting tiller development and root establishment, and it's also important to maintain the correct nitrogen to sulfur ratio. An

Reduce Drift with Drift-X DRT

With the recent adverse weather conditions affecting a shortened planting season, our customers are seeing the benefits of Coastal’s new drift reduction technology product Drift-X DRT (formerly Direct DRT). Drift-X DRT improves the on-target deposition and coverage of your spray application and reduces off-target movement. It performs well for any crop or burndown situation especially around sensitive areas. Drift-X DRT works by reducing the number of spray droplet fines less than 100 microns, increasing the VMD (Volume Median Diameter) of spray droplets and generating a more uniform droplet size spectrum. Drift-X DRT
