WHAT IS CROPCOVER?
CropCover is an innovative, starch-based adhesive made from renewable raw materials. CropCover is non-toxic, non-combustible and fully biodegradable.
The basis of the outstanding adhesion and coating properties are natural starchs. These are produced in a proprietary process developed by amynova polymers GmbH in-house.
WHY USE CROPCOVER?
CropCover is applied as an adhesive together with pesticides and foliar fertilizers. While CropCover greatly reduces rinsing of herbicides and fungicides during heavy rainfall, insecticides also minimize evaporation and evaporation at high temperatures.
CropCover forms a starch film when the spray coating on the leaf surface dries. In this pesticide and / or foliar fertilizer stored as in a depot (no active ingredient encapsulation). In rain or dew, this starch film absorbs water. This forms a strongly adhering gel (rainfastness up to 100 mm), which spreads with the pesticides and / or foliar fertilizers on the leaf (wetting) and can be taken longer by the plant.
CropCover is added to the spray water and is miscible with almost all common pesticides.
After the spray mixture has dried on the plant, a starch film remains on the plant, which stores the active ingredients as in a depot. Since the pesticides are not encapsulated, they are quickly available again when adding water.
Water in the form of rainfall or dew is absorbed by the starch film. It forms a viscous gel, which spreads on the plant without flowing directly.
